Stock Opinions by Stephen Weiss, Founder, Short Hills Capital Partners

DON'T BUY
Apple Inc

China remains a major overhang as the country keeps pushing its domestic phones and not Apple.

electrical / electronic
BUY ON WEAKNESS
Leidos

He bought more today. It's defensive; its defense business amounts to 15% of their revenues and is focused on technology. Also produces healthcare and airport scanners. Good, new managers. He'd buy on dips. 

Defense
PARTIAL BUY
Netflix Inc.

Price target was raised to $700 today. It's the leading streamer in the world, are profitable and they can grow earnings as they want. They've raised monthly fees in recent years, but still attractive to competitors. He may buy more in coming days.

Technology
HOLD

It reports next week. Earnings should be pretty good, because they have no spare capacity, but the market already expects this and it's reflected in the share price.

electrical / electronic
COMMENT

Would buy a 2-year note paying a near-4.9% yield. A great place to hide.

Unknown
BUY
GXO Logistics

Hasn't do well recently, but they report good quarters. Their outsourcing should do well.

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
Goldman Sachs

Loves it. Are starting to see the IPO market open up, as well as the private market, which are high-margin businesses.

investment companies / funds
BUY

He holds a large position that's done well. His big concern is their exposure to China given fears of a Taiwan invasion; TSI has a lot of production in China. It's still reasonably price and can't keep up with orders. Shares will keep rising.

electrical / electronic
BUY
Intel
Their foundry unit lost $7 billion

It's holding up reasonably well (shares are down 7.5% today) given this level of loss. But by Q4 the foundry will do a lot better as it makes more chips to compete with Nvidia. It's a painful day.

computer parts mnfctr
BUY
TransDigm Group

They make airplane parts.  They've acquired 48 companies in this space, so no matter what plane you fly, TDG makes a piece of that. They have pricing power. A permanent compounder.

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY

Just took profits, but remains bullish. They'll settle the accounting issue and enjoy the commodities tailwind.

food processing
PARTIAL BUY
NVIDIA Corporation

He added more shares after the CEO spoke at a conference. Not a large position and he's still holding significant cash.

computer software / processing
WATCH
FedEx

They're cutting costs, not growing the business organically. Last quarter was really bad, so all they've done today is recover that loss. Give the new CEO some time to straighten out the cost base and then we'll see if things pick up. The stock isn't cheap; shorts are discounting the market but that's where it should be for this cyclical stock.

Transportation
BUY ON WEAKNESS

Wants to buy it. It remains expensive though shares are sliding 16% today. They have a unique brand.

household goods
DON'T BUY
Nike Inc

Their weakness reflects the Chinese consumer's day of reckoning over American brands, and the government supporting their domestic brands. Look at Tesla. He doesn't know how Nike gets out of this.
