A higher net margin reflects a company’s efficiency at converting sales into actual profit.

Net Profit Margin = Net profit /Sales * 100.

In simple terms, net profit is the amount a company retains after deducting all costs, interest, depreciation, taxes and other expenses. In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company operations and cost-control measures.

Also, higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Further, strength in the metric not only attracts investors but also draws well-skilled employees that eventually add to the value of the business.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin compared to its peers lends the company a competitive edge.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Moreover, the difference in accounting treatment of various items — especially non-cash expenses like depreciation and stock-based compensation — makes comparison a daunting task.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

The Winning Strategy

A healthy net profit margin and solid EPS growth are the two most sought-after elements in a business model.

Apart from these, we have added a few criteria to ensure maximum returns from this strategy.

5 Top Stocks With Impressive Net Profit Margin

The primary purpose of a business is to generate profits that can be reinvested in the expansion or utilization of rewarding shareholders. Net profit margin is an effective tool for the measurement of profits generated by a business.

Net Profit Margin = Net profit /Sales * 100.

In simple terms, net profit is the amount a company retains after deducting all costs, interest, depreciation, taxes and other expenses. In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company operations and cost-control measures.

Also, higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Net margin helps investors judge the risk involved in an investment. Creditors also view it as crucial to determining a company’s ability to pay off debts.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin compared to its peers lends the company a competitive edge.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

The Winning Strategy

A healthy net profit margin and solid EPS growth are the two most sought-after elements in a business model.

Apart from these, we have added a few criteria to ensure maximum returns from this strategy.

VGM Score of A or B: Our research shows that stocks with a VGM Score of A or B when combined with a Zacks Rank #1 or 2 offer the best upside potential.

5 Chemical Growth Stocks to Revitalize Your Portfolio

The chemical industry has gotten its mojo back after being roiled by the global economic crisis. The industry enjoyed a positive run this year, helped by an upswing in the world economy and strength across major end-use markets such as construction, electronics and automotive.

The Zacks Chemicals Diversified industry has outperformed the broader market year to date. The industry has gained around 26.6% over this period, topping S&P 500’s corresponding return of roughly 20.6%.

U.S. Chemical Industry to Ride Growth Wave

The U.S. Chemical Industry has recovered from the damaging effects of Hurricane Harvey and is set for solid growth in 2018. The American Chemistry Council (ACC), an industry trade group, envisions national chemical production (excluding pharmaceuticals) to rise 3.7% in 2018, further accelerating to a 3.9% growth in 2019. The growth is expected to be spurred by higher demand across light vehicles and housing markets, capital investments and improved export markets.

The trade group also expects basic chemicals production to expand 4.7% in 2018 and further gain steam with a 5.2% rise in 2019 on the heels of new capacity additions. Major export markets such as Latin America and Asia are expected to play a significant role in production growth.

The United States remains an attractive investment destination for chemical investment and domestic chemical makers continue to enjoy the advantage of access to abundant and cheaper feedstocks and energy. This is driving investment in chemical production projects.

Per the ACC, roughly 320 chemical projects have been already announced worth more than $185 billion, 62% of which is foreign direct investment. Moreover, roughly 65% of the chemical investment announced since 2010 are complete or under construction. New capacity is expected to provide a boost to chemical production as these investments come on stream.

The ACC also expects chemical industry capital spending to rise 6.3% in 2018 and 6.8% in 2019 and eventually reach $48 billion by 2022.

EU Chemical Sector Back in Business

The European chemical industry has also swung back to life on the back of improving global economic sentiment and a resurgent Eurozone economy. Eurozone’s recovery has been backed by declining unemployment and strengthening business and consumer confidence.

The outlook for the European chemical industry is positive. The European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) expects chemical output in the European Union to rise 2% year over year in 2018. Per the CEFIC, the growth of manufacturing production across sectors such as automotive, construction, metal production and electronics in the European Union has led to higher demand for chemicals in the region. Exports of chemicals produced in European Union have also increased, particularly, in Asia and Russia.

Demand Strength Across Key End-Markets

Chemical makers continue to see strong demand from construction and automotive sectors – major chemical end-use markets. A recovery across housing and commercial construction markets has been a tailwind for the chemical industry. The underlying trends in the housing space remain healthy, backed by steady buyer demand, low mortgage rates, high homebuilders’ confidence, low unemployment levels and rising rent costs.

The automotive sector also continues its good run amid certain challenges, supported by an improving job market, rising personal income, improved consumer confidence, low fuel prices, impressive vehicle launches and attractive financing options.

Another positive is a recovery in demand in the energy space – a key chemical end-market that had been out of favor for a while. The recovery has been driven by the rebound in crude oil prices. The recent uptrend in oil prices has been supported by a decline in U.S. oil stockpiles and extension of oil production cuts by OPEC and other major world producers until the end of 2018. Improving fundamentals in the energy space is expected to support chemical demand next year.

5 Chemical Growth Plays

The chemical industry is looking up, making it an attractive investment proposition for 2018. The industry’s momentum is expected to continue next year on sustained demand strength across major end-markets and significant capital investment. Amid such a backdrop, it would be a prudent idea to invest in chemical stocks with compelling growth prospects if you are looking to reap solid returns from your portfolio in 2018.

Growth investors look for stocks with aggressive earnings or revenue growth potential, which should lead to higher stock prices. With the help of our Style Score System, we have picked five stand-out chemical stocks that have excellent prospects and might offer solid investment returns.

Our research shows that stocks with Growth Style Score of A or B when combined with Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) offer the best investment opportunities in the growth investing space. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

<![CDATA[Zacks.com featured highlights: Arkema, Nutrisystem, Gibraltar Industries, Broadcom and Willdan]]> For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – December 12, 2017 - Stocks in this week’s article Arkema SA ARKAY, Nutrisystem Inc. NTRIGibraltar Industries Inc. ROCK, Broadcom Limited AVGO and Willdan Group Inc. WLDN.

5 Top Stocks with Powerful New Profit Margin

 Net profit margin is the most effective way to measure a company’s profits. A proper analysis of the same reveals how well a company is run and the headwinds confronting it.

A higher net margin reflects the company’s efficiency at converting sales into actual profits.

Net Profit Margin = Net profit /Sales * 100.

In simple terms, net profit is the amount a company retains after deducting all costs, interest, depreciation, taxes and other expenses. In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company operations and cost-control measures.

Also, higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Further, strength in the metric not only attracts investors but also draws well-skilled employees that eventually add to the value of the business.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin as compared to peers lends a company competitive edge.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Moreover, the difference in accounting treatment of various items — especially non-cash expenses like depreciation and stock-based compensation — makes comparison a daunting task.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on the net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

<![CDATA[Zacks.com featured highlights: Arkema, Nutrisystem, Gibraltar Industries, Leidos Holdings and Willdan Group]]> For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – November 27, 2017 - Stocks in this week’s article Arkema SA ARKAY, Nutrisystem Inc. NTRI, Gibraltar Industries Inc. ROCK, Leidos Holdings Inc. LDOS and Willdan Group Inc. WLDN.

Scared of Market Volatility? Bet on 5 Low-Beta Stocks

Top 5 Stocks with Solid Net Profit Margin

Businesses churning out high profits are sought by one and all. And to gauge the extent of profit, there is no better metric than net profit margin.

Net profit margin demonstrates the affluence of a company. It determines the efficiency of a company in deploying its resources, making it the best metric to measure its profitability.

Net Profit Margin = Net profit /Sales * 100.

Net profit of a business is the amount that remains in the last line (also known as bottom line) of the income statement after all costs (including taxes) have been deducted from revenues.

In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company’s operations and cost-control measures.

Higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Net margin helps investors judge the risks of investing in a company. Creditors also view it as a major factor in determining a company’s ability to pay off debts.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin as compared to peers lends a competitive edge. Strength in the metric not only attracts investors but also draws well-skilled employees that eventually add to the value of the business.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Moreover, the difference in accounting treatment of various items — especially non-cash expenses like depreciation and stock-based compensation — makes comparison a daunting task.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on the net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

<![CDATA[The Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: RWE AG, Daimler AG, Bayer Aktiengesellschaft and Arkema S.A.]]> For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – October 30, 2017 – Zacks.com announces the list of stocks featured in the Analyst Blog. Every day the Zacks Equity Research analysts discuss the latest news and events impacting stocks and the financial markets. Stocks recently featured in the blog include RWE AG RWEOY, Daimler AG DDAIF, Bayer Aktiengesellschaft BAYRY and Arkema S.A. ARKAY.

Today, Zacks is promoting its ''Buy'' stock recommendations. Get #1Stock of the Day pick for free.

Here are highlights from Friday’s Analyst Blog:

Top European Stocks to Buy on Extended QE Plan

The European Central Bank (ECB) said that though it will eventually pare back its monthly bond purchase program, it will keep buying through next September. The ECB also said that interest rates will remain unchanged well past the end of the quantitative easing (QE) program.

Such a move quashed expectations of a stimulus wind down, driving European equities higher. After all, these programs were aimed at fending off threats of Eurozone deflation. In fact, such policies are helping the currency bloc’s economy post its strongest year since 2007, with measures of consumer confidence touching a decade-high.

Banking on such encouraging developments, investing in sound European stocks does not seem to be a bad proposition.

Draghi Pulls off Dovish Trick with QE Plan

The ECB said that it will be slashing the level of bond purchases every month, but will extend the length of the time the stimulus program runs. The central bank has also promised to buy €30 billion in bonds from €60 billion beginning January 2018, and intends to extend its monetary stimulus program until at least September of 2018. The ECB was more dovish than its watchers had anticipated. After all, this is no “taper” but merely a “downsize” of Eurozone QE.

In fact, the central bank said that it still reserves the right to boost QE. Draghi dismissed concerns that the central bank would run out of assets to acquire. He hinted that the bank is capable of plugging any gaps in finding the right government bonds to be acquired.

QE Designed to Boost Eurozone Economies

Three years into QE, the Eurozone’s economy has progressed by leaps and bounds. Production output has increased, with growth exceeding levels witnessed in the United States and the U.K. this year. Further, an index of manufacturing scaled the highest level in six years, rising from 58.1 in September to 58.6 in October.

About 6 million jobs have been created during the said period, with unemployment levels remaining low. Hiring for the manufacturing sector was the highest this month since 1997 and employment in the service sector also increased.

And why won’t such an ultra-accommodative policy help? Such an unconventional form of monetary policy propels economic growth through the purchase of government bonds. This lowers short-term interest rates and increases money supply.

The ECB, meanwhile, kept its rates at ultra-low levels, with its main rate at zero and another one below that level. The message to investors is clear. The bank didn’t want to repeat the mistake made in 2008 and again in 2011. During that period, the bank raised interest rates only to reverse its course due to the fall of Lehman Brothers and then because of the sovereign debt calamity in the Eurozone.

European Stocks Close Higher After ECB Reveals Gentle Taper

European stocks rallied following the ECB’s move to extend its asset-purchasing program. German equities ended at record highs, while Germany’s DAX 30 index popped 1.4% to 13,133.28. This surpassed the previous high of 13,043.03 scaled on Oct 18. France’s CAC 40 ended 1.5% up to close at 5,455.40, and Italy’s FTSE MIB added 1.6% to close at 22,807.42.

The broader Stoxx Europe 600 index rose 1.1% to end at a one-week high of 391.27. The countries that make up the index are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden and the U.K.

Grab These 4 European Stocks Now

ECB’s decision against winding down its stimulus program and boosting Eurozone economic growth bode well for European shares. Hence, investing in the same appears judicious.

Thus, we have selected four stocks that flaunt a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or #2 (Buy) and a VGM Score of A or B.  Here, V stands for Value, G for Growth, and M for Momentum, and the score is a weighted combination of these three metrics. Such a score allows you to eliminate the negative aspects of stocks and select winners.

RWE AGis a supplier of electricity and natural gas in Europe. RWE Aktiengesellschaft was founded in 1898 and is headquartered in Essen, Germany. The stock has a Zacks Rank #2.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings rose 6.8% over the last 60 days. The company’s expected growth rate for the current year is 69.8%, way higher than the industry’s estimated growth of 3.4%.

<![CDATA[ECB Reveals Dovish QE Plan: 4 Top European Stocks to Buy Now]]> The European Central Bank (ECB) said that though it will eventually pare back its monthly bond purchase program, it will keep buying through next September. The ECB also said that interest rates will remain unchanged well past the end of the quantitative easing (QE) program.

Such a move quashed expectations of a stimulus wind down, driving European equities higher. After all, these programs were aimed at fending off threats of Eurozone deflation. In fact, such policies are helping the currency bloc’s economy post its strongest year since 2007, with measures of consumer confidence touching a decade-high.

Banking on such encouraging developments, investing in sound European stocks does not seem to be a bad proposition.

Draghi Pulls off Dovish Trick with QE Plan

The ECB said that it will be slashing the level of bond purchases every month, but will extend the length of the time the stimulus program runs. The central bank has also promised to buy €30 billion in bonds from €60 billion beginning January 2018, and intends to extend its monetary stimulus program until at least September of 2018. The ECB was more dovish than its watchers had anticipated. After all, this is no “taper” but merely a “downsize” of Eurozone QE.

In fact, the central bank said that it still reserves the right to boost QE. Draghi dismissed concerns that the central bank would run out of assets to acquire. He hinted that the bank is capable of plugging any gaps in finding the right government bonds to be acquired.

QE Designed to Boost Eurozone Economies

Three years into QE, the Eurozone’s economy has progressed by leaps and bounds. Production output has increased, with growth exceeding levels witnessed in the United States and the U.K. this year. Further, an index of manufacturing scaled the highest level in six years, rising from 58.1 in September to 58.6 in October.

About 6 million jobs have been created during the said period, with unemployment levels remaining low. Hiring for the manufacturing sector was the highest this month since 1997 and employment in the service sector also increased.

And why won’t such an ultra-accommodative policy help? Such an unconventional form of monetary policy propels economic growth through the purchase of government bonds. This lowers short-term interest rates and increases money supply.

The ECB, meanwhile, kept its rates at ultra-low levels, with its main rate at zero and another one below that level. The message to investors is clear. The bank didn’t want to repeat the mistake made in 2008 and again in 2011. During that period, the bank raised interest rates only to reverse its course due to the fall of Lehman Brothers and then because of the sovereign debt calamity in the Eurozone.

European Stocks Close Higher After ECB Reveals Gentle Taper

European stocks rallied following the ECB’s move to extend its asset-purchasing program. German equities ended at record highs, while Germany’s DAX 30 index popped 1.4% to 13,133.28. This surpassed the previous high of 13,043.03 scaled on Oct 18. France’s CAC 40 ended 1.5% up to close at 5,455.40, and Italy’s FTSE MIB added 1.6% to close at 22,807.42.

The broader Stoxx Europe 600 index rose 1.1% to end at a one-week high of 391.27. The countries that make up the index are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden and the U.K.

Grab These 4 European Stocks Now

ECB’s decision against winding down its stimulus program and boosting Eurozone economic growth bode well for European shares. Hence, investing in the same appears judicious.

Thus, we have selected four stocks that flaunt a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or #2 (Buy) and a VGM Score of A or B.  Here, V stands for Value, G for Growth, and M for Momentum, and the score is a weighted combination of these three metrics. Such a score allows you to eliminate the negative aspects of stocks and select winners.

RWE AG RWEOY is a supplier of electricity and natural gas in Europe. RWE Aktiengesellschaft was founded in 1898 and is headquartered in Essen, Germany. The stock has a Zacks Rank #2.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings rose 6.8% over the last 60 days. The company’s expected growth rate for the current year is 69.8%, way higher than the industry’s estimated growth of 3.4%.

Daimler AG DDAIF engages in the development, production, and distribution of passenger cars, trucks, vans, and buses in Germany and internationally. Founded in 1886, Daimler is headquartered in Stuttgart. The company currently has a Zacks Rank #2.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 2.1% in the last 60 days. Daimler is expected to yield a return of 24.3% this year, higher than the industry’s projected growth of 20.2%.

Bayer Aktiengesellschaft BAYRY – with a Zacks Rank #1 – operates as a life science company worldwide. The company was founded in 1863 and is headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings advanced 0.5% over the last 60 days. The stock is expected to give a return of 9.4%, higher than the industry’s estimated growth of 5.9%. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

Arkema S.A. ARKAY, incorporated in 2003, produces and sells chemical products worldwide. The company is based in Colombes, France. The stock has a Zacks Rank #2.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 0.2% in the last 60 days. The company’s expected growth rate for the current year is 39.2%, much higher than the industry’s estimated growth of 9.8%.

<![CDATA[Zacks.com highlights: Modine Manufacturing, Commercial Vehicle Group, Arkema SA and Willdan Group]]> For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – Oct 26, 2017 - Stocks in this week’s article include: Modine Manufacturing Company MOD, Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. CVGI, Arkema SA ARKAY and Willdan Group Inc. WLDN.

Screen of the Week of Zacks Investment Research:

4 Top Stocks with Solid Net Profit Margin

As the primary motive of any investor is to generate maximum returns, companies raking in huge profits make solid picks.

Net profit margin is the most effective way to measure a company’s profitability. A proper analysis of the same reveals how well a company is run in the face of headwinds.

Net Profit Margin= Net profit /Sales * 100.

In simple terms, net profit is the amount a company retains after deducting all costs, interest, depreciation, taxes and other expenses. In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company’s operations and cost-control measures.

Higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Net margin helps investors judge the risks of investing in a company. Creditors also view it as a major factor in determining a company’s ability to pay off debts.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin as compared to peers lends a competitive edge. Strength in the metric not only attracts investors but also draws well-skilled employees that eventually add to the value of the business.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Moreover, the difference in accounting treatment of various items — especially non-cash expenses like depreciation and stock-based compensation — makes comparison a daunting task.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt, instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on the net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

The Winning Strategy

A healthy net profit margin and solid EPS growth are the two most sought-after elements in a business model.

Apart from these, we have added a few other criteria to ensure maximum returns from this strategy.

Screening Parameters

Net Margin 12 months – Most Recent (%) greater than equal to 0: High net profit margin indicates solid profitability.

Percentage Change in EPS F(0)/(F-1) greater than equal to 0: It indicates earnings growth.

Average Broker Rating (1-5) equal to 1: A rating of #1 indicates brokers’ extreme bullishness of the stock.

Zacks Rank less than or equal to 2: Stocks having a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy) generally perform better than their peers in all types of market environment.

VGM Score of A or B: Our research shows that stocks with a VGM Score of A or B when combined with a Zacks Rank #1 or 2 offer the best upside potential.

Here are four of the 11 stocks that qualified the screen:

Headquartered in Racine, WI,Modine Manufacturing Company is a designer, manufacturer and distributor of thermal management systems and components for several end markets. The stock sports a Zacks Rank #1 and a VGM Score of B. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal 2018 earnings has increased a couple of cents to $1.40 over the last 30 days. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

New Albany, OH-based Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. supplies interior systems, vision safety solutions and other cab-related products for the global commercial vehicle market. The stock has a Zacks Rank #2 and a VGM Score of B. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal 2017 earnings remained steady at 36 cents over the last 30 days.

France-based Arkema SA is engaged in the manufacturing and marketing of vinyl products, industrial chemicals, and performance products. The stock has a Zacks Rank #2 and a VGM Score of A. Moreover, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for 2017 earnings has increased a couple of cents to $8.53 over the last 30 days.

Willdan Group Inc.is a provider of professional technical and consulting services to utilities, private industry, and public agencies at all levels of government. The stock sports a Zacks Rank #2 and a VGM Score of A. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fiscal 2017 earnings increased 6 cents to $1.16 over the last 30 days.

<![CDATA[The Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: Deutsche Lufthansa, Peugeot, Luxottica, Bayer and Arkema.]]> For Immediate Release

Chicago, IL – October 26, 2017 – Zacks.com announces the list of stocks featured in the Analyst Blog. Every day the Zacks Equity Research analysts discuss the latest news and events impacting stocks and the financial markets. Stocks recently featured in the blog include Deutsche Lufthansa Aktiengesellschaft DLAKYPeugeot S.A. PUGOYLuxottica Group S.p.A. LUXTY, Bayer Aktiengesellschaft BAYRY and Arkema S.A. ARKAY.

Here are highlights from Wednesday’s Analyst Blog:

European Economy Exudes Strength: 5 Great Picks

The latest IHS Markit PMI data for the Eurozone shows that the currency bloc’s economy expanded at a slower rate this month. However, the composite PMI reading remained at a level which indicates that economic activity remains firm across the region. Meanwhile, consumer confidence hit record levels, reflecting the inherent strength of the region’s economy.

Further, hiring for the manufacturing sector has increased to its fastest pace in more than a decade. Other economic indicators were also encouraging, setting the stage for a possible round of tapering from the European Central Bank. Given the continued strength exhibited by the Eurozone’s economy, it makes sense to invest in stocks from the region at this time.

Growth Eases But Remains Firm, Key Indicators Upbeat

On Tuesday, IHS Markit revealed that its composite PMI for the Eurozone had declined from 56.7 in September to 55.9 in October. However, any reading above the level of 50 indicates that economic expansion is taking place. This means that the indicator remains at an appreciably high level. Additionally, hiring for the manufacturing sector hit its highest level since 1997. This is a result of a substantial inflow of orders, bolstered by a rise in export demand.

Further, an index of manufacturing hit its highest level in six years, increasing from 58.1 in September to 58.6 in October. Additionally, employment in the service sector has also increased. Germany witnessed its largest increase in new orders in more than six years during this month. Meanwhile, business activity continued to increase in France. Notably, France’s employment growth hit its highest level in nearly 10 and a half years in October.

Consumer Confidence Hits 16-Year High, Stage Set for Tapering?

Coming to official data, the European Commission’s monthly gauge for consumer sentiment increased from -1.2 to -1.0 in October, according to data released on Monday. This is the highest level experienced since April 2001. This reading follows a strong increase in retail sales within the currency bloc. According to data from IHS Markit, retail PMI for the Eurozone hit its highest level in three months in September. The readings for France and Germany are at their highest in two months.

The stage is therefore set for a round of tapering from the ECB. The Eurozone’s central bank is widely expected to announce a reduction in bond purchases at its next meeting scheduled on Thursday. However, it is widely expected that the ECB’s accommodative policy stance will last at least until the end of 2018. This is because inflation remains well below the targeted level, leading to a lack of consensus on the pace of tightening within the ECB.

Our Choices

Despite the small decline experienced this month, economic activity within the Eurozone continues to remain at an appreciably high level. Consumer confidence has hit record levels and hiring remains strong across key economies, notably France, which is experiencing such a high rate of job creation for the first time in several years.

Adding stocks from the Eurozone to your portfolios looks like a profitable option at this point. However, picking winning stocks may prove to be difficult.

This is where our VGM Score comes in. Here V stands for Value, G for Growth and M for Momentum and the score is a weighted combination of these three scores. Such a score allows you to eliminate the negative aspects of stocks and select winners. However, it is important to keep in mind that each Style Score will carry a different weight while arriving at a VGM score.

Deutsche Lufthansa Aktiengesellschaft is an aviation company which operates within Germany and on an international scale. The company’s headquarters are in Cologne, Germany.

Lufthansa has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and a VGM Score of A. The company has expected earnings growth of 6.3% for the current year. The stock has gained 139.4% year to date.

Peugeot S.A. is involved in the automobile, automotive equipment and related financial businesses. Its operations are conducted within Europe as well as in other countries and regions. The company’s headquarters are in Rueil-Malmaison, France.

Peugeot has a Zacks Rank #1 and a VGM Score of A. The company has expected earnings growth of 47.3% for the current year. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 2% over the last 30 days. The stock has gained 44.7% year to date.

Luxottica Group S.p.A. is a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high quality eyeglass frames and sunglasses in the mid and premium priced market segments. The company’s headquarters are in Milan, Italy.

Luxottica has a VGM Score of B. The company has expected earnings growth of 10% for the current year. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 0.7% over the last 30 days. The stock has gained 4.4% year to date. The stock has a Zacks Rank #1. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Bayer Aktiengesellschaft produces a broad range of health care, crop protection, polymer, and chemical products. The company’s headquarters are in Leverkusen, Germany.

Bayer has a Zacks Rank #2 and a VGM Score of A. The company has expected earnings growth of 10.4% for the current year. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 1.4% over the last 60 days. The stock has gained 31.6% year to date.

Arkema S.A. is engaged in the manufacturing and marketing of vinyl products, industrial chemicals, and performance products. The company’s headquarters are in Colombes, France.

Arkema has a Zacks Rank #2 and a VGM Score of A. The company has expected earnings growth of 39.2% for the current year. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings increased 0.2% over the last 30 days.  The stock has gained 27.4% year to date.

<![CDATA[4 Top Stocks with Solid Net Profit Margin]]> As the primary motive of any investor is to generate maximum returns, companies raking in huge profits make solid picks.

Net profit margin is the most effective way to measure a company’s profitability. A proper analysis of the same reveals how well a company is run in the face of headwinds.

Net Profit Margin = Net profit /Sales * 100.

In simple terms, net profit is the amount a company retains after deducting all costs, interest, depreciation, taxes and other expenses. In fact, net profit margin can turn out to be a potent point of reference to gauge the strength in a company’s operations and cost-control measures.

Higher net profit is essential for rewarding stakeholders. Net margin helps investors judge the risks of investing in a company. Creditors also view it as a major factor in determining a company’s ability to pay off debts.

Moreover, a higher net profit margin as compared to peers lends a competitive edge. Strength in the metric not only attracts investors but also draws well-skilled employees that eventually add to the value of the business.

Pros and Cons

Net profit margin helps investors gain clarity on a company’s business model in terms of pricing policy, cost structure and manufacturing efficiency. Hence, a strong net profit margin is preferred by all classes of investors.

However, net profit margin as an investment criterion has its own share of pitfalls. The metric varies widely from industry to industry. While net income is a key metric for investment measurement in traditional industries, it is not that important for technology companies.

Moreover, the difference in accounting treatment of various items — especially non-cash expenses like depreciation and stock-based compensation — makes comparison a daunting task.

Further, for companies preferring to grow with debt, instead of equity funding, higher interest expenses usually weigh on the net profit. In such cases, the measure is rendered ineffective to analyze a company’s performance.

The Winning Strategy

A healthy net profit margin and solid EPS growth are the two most sought-after elements in a business model.

Apart from these, we have added a few other criteria to ensure maximum returns from this strategy.

Screening Parameters

Net Margin 12 months – Most Recent (%) greater than equal to 0: High net profit margin indicates solid profitability.

Percentage Change in EPS F(0)/(F-1) greater than equal to 0: It indicates earnings growth.

Average Broker Rating (1-5) equal to 1: A rating of #1 indicates brokers’ extreme bullishness of the stock.

Zacks Rank less than or equal to 2: Stocks having a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy) generally perform better than their peers in all types of market environment.

VGM Score of A or B: Our research shows that stocks with a VGM Score of A or B when combined with a Zacks Rank #1 or 2 offer the best upside potential.
