All Rights Reserved. investment intelligence Trading Desk "One of the most knowledgeable players in the space, t. boone pickens, is back- ing the fund, which has the ap- propriate symbol 'boon'". Penn: OPen UCTT in new FrOnTier We added semiconductor equipment maker Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. to the New Frontier Fund at $21.61 per share. This $780 million small-cap gem carries a P/E of just 12—about half that of the industry. See further details of the firm in the Under the Radar section of the Report. Penn: Take PrOFiTs On nke Based on the crazy gyration in the stock price over the past year, and since the stock had reached our price target, we took our 24% gain on footwear-maker Nike (NKE $50-$65- $65). We did this on the trading day of the earnings report (after hours) because, quite often, even good news causes an immediate drop in the share price. Penn: ClOse GT in inTrePid Two factors made us sell the Goodyear Tire we picked up almost precisely two months ago: it hit our initial price target, and we are begin- ning to get nervous about the competitive atmosphere within the rubber and tire indus- try. We will never hesitate to take a short-term, double-digit gain off the table and wait to re-deploy the proceeds somewhere else. nOmUra: raise wYnn PriCe TarGeT Analysts at Nomura Instinet reiterated their buy rating on gambling house WYNN (our favorite industry player, by the way) and raised the company's price target from $176 to $195. WYNN blew past that target within minutes of the report's release. Penn: Take PrOFiTs On embraer We were prepared to hold Brazilian aircraft maker Embraer (ERJ) for the long haul, but the rumor that Boeing was going to takeover the company—and the subsequent 25% jump in share price—made us take our profits off the table. 25%, by the way, was also our short- term gain on the position, which was being held in the Intrepid Trading Platform. Penn: OPen siG in inTrePid We have played industry-leading jewelry company Signet as a trading stock with great success in the past. We understand when to buy...and when to sell. We believe investors overreacted to the company's Q4 earnings report and guidance, and picked up the shares at $40 within the Intrepid Trading Platform. Penn: OPen nwl in inTrePid We opened a position in iconic Tupperware maker Newell Brands (Rubbermaid) after learning of Carl Icahn's new stake in the com- pany. With a 9.92% p/e, a 3.58% dividend yield, and shares sitting down 50% from their 52-week high, the trade was calling our name. Penn: OPen TOT in GlObal leaders International energy giant Total (TOT) had a really good year. With a revenue increase of 17% in 2017 and strong earnings increases over each of the past three years, we believe this company is a worthy addition to the Penn Global Leaders Club. The 5% dividend doesn't hurt, either. We purchased the position at $56.37 per share, with an initial price target of $70. Penn: OPen bOOn in dGs T. Boone Pickens has backed a fascinating new energy ETF with a lot of promise. BOON opened at $25 per unit, zeros in on energy and other companies which move in sync with the price of crude. It even includes such commodity holdings as Southern Copper. We opened as satellite in the DGS at $24.93/share.
