  • 3 Tech Stocks With Recent Intensive Insider Selling

    By Markus Aarnio - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: JBL, PLXS, SGI

    Insiders tend to buy more often than usual before large price increases and to sell more than usual before price decreases. Intensive insider selling can be defined by the following three criteria:

    1. The stock was sold by three or more insiders within one month.
    2. The stock was not purchased by any insiders in the month of intensive selling.
    3. At least two sellers decreased their holdings by more than 10%.

  • Should You Be Patient With This Stock?

    By Harsh Chauhan - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BBRY, JBL

    There was a pretty slim chance that contract electronics manufacturer Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) would turn in a spectacular third-quarter earnings report and it wasn’t surprising when its guidance fell behind expectations once again.

    Although the company did beat analysts’ estimates, it was the least that it could have done since they were already pretty low. Investors looking for some upbeat comments from management would have surely been disappointed more »

  • Piecing Together Analyst Reactions Before BlackBerry's Q1 2014 Earnings Results

    By Christopher DeSousa - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: BBRY, JBL

    U.S stocks have tilted lower lately on fears of a slowing Chinese economy and the U.S Federal Reserve's plan to unwind U.S stimulus. BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY) was one of the few gainers in the technology sector on Monday, climbing 2.8% to $14.75 per share. The company is set to report earnings results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 before the opening bell on more »

  • Is a Turnaround in the Cards for This Company?

    By Harsh Chauhan - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: BBRY, FLEX, JBL

    It’s been a tumultuous year for shares of contract electronics manufacturer Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) with the stock just about keeping its head above the water. However, there’s been a mini rally of sorts over the past couple of months with shares gaining close to 15% after skirting 52-week lows.

    Therefore, the upcoming third-quarter results, due out on June 19, will play a vital role in determining whether more »

  • This Electronic Manufacturer With All-Star Customers Is Cheap

    By Matthew Frankel - June 4, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CSCO, JBL

    With an all-star customer list that includes most of the biggest names in technology, Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) should be performing a whole lot better than it is. Shares of Jabil are hovering right around $20, a full 27% below their 52-week high, and even further below the prices of the mid-2000’s, before the financial crisis. Since that time, Jabil’s revenues (and earnings) have risen to all-time highs more »

  • Does Its Attractive Valuation Mean a Solid Investment?

    By Mike Thiessen - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: BHE, FLEX, JBL

    Benchmark Electronics (NYSE: BHE) has lately attracted the attention of value-seeking investors thanks to a price-to-book ratio of just .85. Unlike many companies that have relatively low valuations, the company has posted eye-popping revenue growth and operates in a stable, mature industry that continues to see decent performance.

    On the other hand, a closer look at Benchmark's balance sheet may offer some cause for concern. Investors who habitually invest more »

    By Rahul Giria - April 29, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BBRY, JBL, NTE

    The electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry is not that popular among the general investment community. The technology industry tends to be sensitive to economic cycles, so, getting into this sector when the economy is getting out of recession is the perfect time to invest. Let’s dig in to find some gold!

    First, we'll take a look at Nam Tai Electronics (NYSE: NTE). The stock appreciated over 160% in more »

    Have you ever been dumpster diving?  I have--it is a great past time.  One thing I've learned is that you never know what some people will throw away.  Sometimes there is a reason it is being thrown out, while other times you find something that proves the old adage: one man's trash is another man's treasure.

    Since the beginning of 2012, Nam Tai Electronics (NYSE: NTE) has experienced a nice gain of more than 135%, from around $5.50 per share to nearly $13 per share.

  • A Buying Oppurtunity in This Consumer Electronics Play?

    By Lee Samaha - March 26, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, JBL

    A cute way to get to know someone is to ask him or her to describe three qualities that people usually attribute to them. Now consider if you met Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) at a cocktail party (us Europeans invented surrealism after all); what three things would you immediately learn?

  • A Cheap Semiconductor Stock That You Shouldn’t Miss

    By Harsh Chauhan - March 22, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BBRY, JBL

    I had thought that contracts electronics manufacturer Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) would start getting better after signing off 2012 on a high, but the company’s latest quarterly report put paid to those hopes, handsomely. Jabil missed consensus estimates on the bottom line, and issued a pretty weak guidance for the ongoing quarter.

    Jabil expects adjusted earnings of $0.50 to $0.58 per share on revenue of $4.3 more »

  • 1 Low-Priced, Fast-Growth Tech Stock

    By Mike Thiessen - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: BHE, FLEX, JBL

    Angleton, Texas-based Benchmark Electronics (NYSE: BHE) has frustrated its long-term investors for several years straight. Judging by its stock price alone, the company has consistently underperformed the market's expectations, offering limited value for both shorts and longs.

    Over the past five years, the company hit a bottom near $9 per share in late 2009, and a high just north of $22 per share in the second quarter of 2010 more »

  • A Less Obvious Play on the Big Boys Of Tech

    By Matthew Frankel - March 1, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BBRY, CSCO, JBL

    Jabil Circuit (NYSE: JBL) is a leading provider of electronic manufacturing services around the world.  With a plethora of A-list customers (more on that later), the company has done an outstanding job of increasing its revenues.  However, shares have not quite kept pace with this.  In fact, at around $18.50, shares are actually lower than they were 10 years ago.  With the stock trading at the low end of more »

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and the rise of mobile devices have disturbed computer component makers. The stocks of many of these component manufacturers are trading at low valuation multiples.
