Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly SLP is a $1.2 billion healthcare software company that provides modeling and simulation products to drug companies and biotechs and other sectors. Recently reported revenues were up 27% on the year and net income rose 49%. Their recurring revenue model helps produce 78% gross margins and it carries minimal long term debt. It pays a small dividend, backed by a 45% payout ratio. We would buy this with a stop loss at $40, looking to achieve $83 -- upside potential over 40%. Yield 0.38% (Analysts’ price target is $82.50)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly As consumers become more comfortable with online commerce, SHOP is well positioned to continue to see significant growth. It offers retailers an efficient way to sell directly and it collects recurring revenues through subscription fees. Earnings will be reported April 28 and the market expects EPS of $0.71 US and revenue of over $848 million US. Growth is expected to be modest compared to more than 1200% last year. Its success as a Canadian company has allowed it to build its cash position to over $2 billion US. We would buy this with a stop loss at $1000, looking to achieve $2000 -- upside potential over 30%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $2002.76)
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly TLT is an ETF that represents US 20 long term treasury bonds of a term of 20+ years. Yields on these treasuries have been rising steadily since the pandemic based market collapse last March from under 1.00% to 2.25% now. This is a precautionary holding, to protect in the event of another market retracement. With the S&P500 trading at 22.4x earnings the market is at risk to correction if this season's reported earnings disappoint. As we consider this a hedge, we do not set a target or stop-loss, but instead will monitor trends in the underlying yield as a signal. Yield 1.61%
