Over the past year Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) has made headline news in future plans for the company. Not only did the acquire Evolution Fresh, Inc. to tap into the fruit drinks, healthy shakes market but have most recently reported that they will be making there way into India by the end of August 2012. Starbucks, along with Asia’s largest publicly traded coffee grower, Tata Coffee Ltd, have plans to open close to 50 stores spreading Frappuccino aromas to the two largest cities in India Mumbai and India’s Capital city Delhi. There has been talk of the coffee outlets opening in shopping malls, office parks, universities, train stations, and even airports.

Most recently Starbucks Coffee Company has now made headlines of announcing an agreement to form a joint venture with Ai Ni Group. Ai Ni Group of which is China‘s most established coffee operators, and agricultural companies in the city of Yunnan. This joint venture will be controlled by Starbucks.

Currently Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) – Has a 52 week moving average of $32.17  – $48.62. Since PoulTrend Alert back on 10/3/2011, Starbucks has climbed over 30%. Not only is Starbucks a dividend payer, it has a P/E of 29 Times Earnings which may suggest that investors feel there is great potential in the future outlook for Starbucks.

In a recent Blog Post by Scaeffer’s Research  BMO boosted its price target to $57 from $51.

Currently I Love this company however think there will be some time before we see Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) trading up at or around $57.00 a share. Many have concerns on Starbucks and there expansion to other countries like India, and China. Not only is this market hard to please, but they are always looking for a bargain prices. There may be some time before Starbucks can pull in profits from the expansion to these countries, OR there could be the possibility that it just does not work out for them as they are expecting.

Currently I still have Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) Rated a HOLD. I would recommend trying to wait, and see if you can get this stock at a better value as  over $45.00 a share is a little to pricey in my eyes.

Currently I do not own any Shares of Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ:SBUX) and have no plans to make a position within the next 3 trading days.

One Stock I am Building my Portfolio with! Of which I feel may be a High Risk, but at the same time offering me a possible long term growth investment both in value of share price threw both split’s, and dividend is

HollyFrontier Corp  Public, NYSE: HFC – formerly known as Holly Corporation, is an independent petroleum refiner that produces light products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, specialty lubricant products, and specialty and modified asphalt. Operates on two segments: Refining and Holly Energy Partners, L.P. (HEP).

 December 31, 2010,owned and operated three refineries consisting of a petroleum refinery in Artesia, New Mexico. This refinery of which operates in conjunction with vacuum, and crude oil distillation, and other facilities 65 miles away in Lovington, New Mexico (the Navajo Refinery, and a refinery in Woods Cross Utah/Tulsa Refinery.Owns and operates Holly Asphalt Company, and owns 75% interest in a 12-inch pipeline project from Salt Lake City Utah to Las Vegas Nevada.

In July 2011 had a Merger with Frontier Oil Company. Over the Past 52 week period HollyFrontier has traded between 15.69 – 38.90. During this span it also has announced a Dividend, and had a 2:1 Split.  Currently the Dividend is 0.09/1.10 which in time I expect to grow, and possible at Rapid Rates over the coming years ahead. Their may also be the possibility of a Bigger Company coming in, and making an offer on buying them out.

For instance if you read my post (9/6/2011) of this year I recommend (BEXP) of which opened at $29.31

Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) – of which  engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas in the United States. The company owns property interests in the Onshore Gulf Coast consisting of the Vicksburg trend in Brooks County, Texas. Frio trend in and around Matagorda County, Texas. (BEXP) also has joint venture interests […]

Since this Post on October 25th their was an announcement that Brigham Exploration Company, was going to buy out all the outstanding shares of Brigham for $36.50.

HollyFrontier Financials

Not only do I believe we will still need oil, and oil refiners, for at least 10 possible 20 years. I tend to like Oil Refiners because of overall demand in supply of which has continues to grow each, and every year, and with the USA still number one in oil consumption from Cia.gov numbers. With the USA Dollar of which dropped some bit this year this may result in more demand from other countries which would essentially grow profits. Not to mention refiners do better when oil is down and Gas Climbs which for the better part of this past year Oil, has been quiet low. As of late oil however has made a climb back, and gas has dropped but Overall Long Term, I expect them both to climb. As I overlook the Balance Sheet there was a few things of which sparked my attention. One being Yes, that HollyFrontier has a solid Dividend, and has already had a 2:1 Split,Its P/E is 9.94 which I feel is quiet low.  My only concern is their accounts payable is equal to about 2/3 rds of their liquid assets, especially since a very serious chunk of those assets are accounts receivable. With the Economy as of late their could be a lot of debtors unable to pay at some point in time, or for long periods of time, even some not paying at all. This would then result in difficult paying their creditors. If this scenario was to occur they could possible drop long term assets. Over the coming months and years ahead I think there is great growth possible.

2010 Total Financials for year

Gross Profit 955.78.

Q1 & Q2 2011 Financials 

Revenue Q1 of 2,326.59, Q2 of 2,967.13 – Revenue has climbed each year since 2006 with one slight off year in 2009, which revenue was still over 50%.

Gross Profit has been Q1 of 341.97, Q2 of 520.04 – Has been solid since 2007, with 2010 out beating 2009 by 359.52

Numbers from 2010 Total Financials Down, are all in Millions.

Today (HFC) is trading around $31.50 around $7.50 off of its 52 week highs, and down $0.62 from yesterdays open.With a dividend of 0.09/yield of 1.11, EPS of 3.20, and AVG Volume around 4.10 Million which for today has only moved 700,000, and for less than 3 hours of trading left, its obvious many are sellers are offsetting the buyers, and that Volume on the day may not even meet Half the Avg. My theory being many are holding out the storm, waiting for Q3 earnings.

Currently I hold a long term position in (HFC)

Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) – of which  engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas in the United States. The company owns property interests in the Onshore Gulf Coast consisting of the Vicksburg trend in Brooks County, Texas. Frio trend in and around Matagorda County, Texas. (BEXP) also has joint venture interests in southern Louisiana. Brigham Exploration also holds interests in Hunton Trend and Granite Wash Trend in the Anadarko Basin,Powder River Basin and Williston Basin in the Rocky Mountains. As of December 31, 2010, it had approximately 600,601 gross and 364,309 net leasehold acres in the Williston Basin. As of December 31, 2010, it proved reserves totaled 66.8 million barrels of oil equivalent. Approximately 78% of its proved reserves are crude oil and it operates approximately 81% of its proved reserves.

Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) of which closed on Friday 9/2/2011 at $27.92 is currently a vary undervalued stock in my opinion.  With (BEXP) 52 week high at $37.87 there is $10.00 upside potential. Not to mention on Thursday Raymond James (RJF) upgraded from outperform to “Strong Buy”. Price targets have been ranging anywhere from $35.00-$41.00. The fact is currently (BEXP) is trading $2.00 under its  50-day moving average is $29.61 and $2.50 under 200-day moving average of $31.07.

Lastly back on August 8th, Brigham Exploration reported $0.60 earnings per share (EPS) for the previous quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $0.29 EPS by $0.31. Revenue soared 120.5% on a year-over-year basis.
Currently I am announcing a PoulTrend Alert as of 9/2/2011 at $29.50.  My Price target is at $37.00, and I could easily see this being eclipsed in the next 2 months. I currently have (BEXP) rated at a BUY BUY BUY,HOLD HOLD HOLD, and I am LONG (BEXP)

Disclosure- Currently I hold no positions in Brigham Exploration (BEXP), however plan to initiate a position in the next 72 hours.

Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) currently trading at $91.00 with 52 week high at $116.55 Caterpillar is a still at a bargain. I am announcing a PoulTrend Alert today 8/31/2011. I expect Caterpillar in the coming months ahead to see new highs, and great growth quarter 3, and quarter 4. With analysis EPS being topped as well as revenue. Hmm…Maybe even a Dividend increase?? (No Questions it will happen)

General Electric. (GE) currently trading at $16.30 with 52 week high at $21.65. With Quarter 3 earnings to be released October 21st, and tomorrow being September 1st. I would not be surprised if they climb to $18.25 plus, before the quarter is out. Not to mention (GE) is managed like no other, and they are still #1. I am long (GE), and I am annoucing a PoulTrend Alert on (GE) at $16.30 8/31/2011.

 

Disclosure – Currently I do not have any positions in General Electric or Caterpillar nor plan to initiate a position in them within the next 72 Hours.

National Beverage Corp. (FIZZ) company of which manufactures, develops, distributes, and markets a portfolio of beverages through the USA.  Their beverage products include soft drinks,juices,waters, and energy drinks.  Some of the key things that I love about this stock is the their potential. With the fact that they literally have no DEBT, and with there EPS growing 3 years in a row it is obvious that they are being run like a business. There Revenue, has also continued to climb in 4 straight years. Now they are no Pepsi, or Coke Cola, but they are managed extremely well.  Not to mention there last Dividend paid out $2.30!! Now many believe that when a company is paying out that much that their is High risk in failing however I tend to disagree when it comes to (FIZZ). As Fool.com pointed out there intangible assets ratio is 8% compared to competitors like Pepsi (PEP) at 45% and Cola (KO) at 34%. Yes these companies are worth are worth 10 times as much as (FIZZ). However (FIZZ) blows (KO)(PEP) out the water in Return on average equity which was 56% last Qt to (KO) 33%,(PEP) 35%. However (FIZZ) cannot compete with their Net Profit Margins. At the end of the day, I feel that (FIZZ) about to eclipse its 52 week High of $16.57, there could be a break out to the high $18.00 or more. Currently I am Long (FIZZ)(KO) and (PEP) however for a young trader who may not have as much money on the table (FIZZ) may be a better buy!

Currently I rate (FIZZ) as a BUY,HOLD HOLD, and a PoulTrend alert has been called 8/30/2011 at $16.00.

Disclosure- Currently I do not hold positions in any of the stocks talked about in this blog post, and have no plans to initiate a position in them for the next 72 hours.
