When the cameras stopped rolling, these contestants and stars from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette had to resume their normal lives — most of them without a partner — and make money.

Plenty of them found success because of the show; others, in spite of it. These former contestants are worth a lot more than you’d think, adopting unique career paths to capitalize on their 15 minutes of fame. The wealthiest contestant got his riches from an unlikely source (page 10).

  • Estimated net worth: $4 million

The most hated man in America was well-off before he announced his (second) quest for love on season 22 of The Bachelor. Arie raced in the Indy 500 for eight seasons and accumulated a fair amount of wealth from racing: $415,550, according to Racing-Reference.Info.

Arie took a break from racing to pursue a career as a real estate agent for investment and luxury properties. He was likely paid around $100,000 for his seven-week bachelor season and will make more from Instagram partnerships and appearances with fiance Lauren Burnham.

According to Forbes, an Instagram user with 100,000 followers can earn an estimated $5,000 for a sponsored post, or one made with a brand. Bushnell, who has over 1 million followers, likely commands around $50,000 for influencer posts.

Sean Lowe marked his first TV appearance as a contestant on The Bachelorette (Season 8). The third-place finalist and fan-favorite was elected the bachelor immediately for season 17. Lowe married Catherine Giudici, his season’s winner, in a televised ceremony. The couple reportedly made six figures for the live one-episode special.

Lowe made around $235,000 competing on Dancing With the Stars. While he still partners with the occasional brand — he and Catherine’s baby shower was sponsored by Dreft baby detergent — Lowe used his earnings to prepare for his future. He told Fortune how he invested $10 million in a real estate project in Texas, which is already paying off.

ABC agreed to pay them $1 million for the TV rights to their wedding, but a published contract between the parties showed the couple had to allow ABC to decide on every detail in order to claim the cash.

<![CDATA[Lowe's (LOW) отчитался лучше прогнозов аналитиков]]> В среду Lowe's (LOW) сообщил о прибыли за четвертый квартал и сопоставимых продажах, которые превысили ожидания рынка.

Согласно данным Thomson Reuters, ближайший конкурент компании Home Depot (HD) сообщил следующие результаты по сравнению с ожиданиями аналитиков:

Скорректированная прибыль на акцию составила $0,74 против $0,87.

Выручка за квартал составила $15,49 млрд против $15,33 млрд.

Сопоставимые продажи увеличились на 4,1% по сравнению с ожидаемым ростом на 3,1%.

"По мере входа в 2018 год мы прилагаем все усилия, чтобы улучшить результаты с акцентом на конверсию, валовую маржу и управление запасами", - говорится в заявлении генерального директора Роберта Ниблока. "Учитывая стремительно развивающуюся конкурентную среду, мы также ускоряем наши стратегические инвестиции, используя преимущества налоговой реформы".

Чистая прибыль Lowe's снизилась до $554 млн, или $0,67 на акцию, по сравнению с $663 млн, или $0,74 на акцию годом ранее (период включал дополнительную неделю). За исключением единовременных статей, Lowe's заработал $0,74 на акцию, что на $0,13 меньше ожиданий аналитиков.

Доход за период сократился примерно на 2% и составил $15,49 млрд, но превысил ожидания Уолл-Стрит $15,33 млрд.

Сопоставимые продажи - ключевой показатель для ритейлеров - выросли чуть более чем на 4%, снова превзойдя ожидания. Тем не менее, аналогичный показатель конкурента Home Depot увеличился на 7,5% за тот же период.

Lowe's, как и Home Depot, выиграл от сильного рынка жилья в США и стареющего населения, которое начало инвестировать в дома.

В конце прошлого года, однако, Lowe's был раскритикован активистом-инвестором D.E. Shaw & Co., по мнению которого компания недостаточно эффективно борется с конкуренцией.

"На мой взгляд, активистское вмешательство в Lowe's уже давно назрело", - сказал аналитик Oppenheimer & Co. Брайан Нагель в среду. По его словам, внешнее давление должно привести к тому, что Lowe's станет "гораздо более агрессивной" компанией, так как она репозиционирует себя на рынке и в категории улучшения жилья.

Последние инициативы компании включают в себя реинвестирование капитала в свою рабочую силу - объявление бонусов и более высокий льготный пакет в связи с налоговой реформой США, а также рост цепочки поставок, открыв свой первый клиентский центр в Нэшвилле, Теннесси.

Кроме того, компания объявила в среду о более глубоком партнерстве с Sherwin-Williams, сделав Lowe's единственным национальным розничным продавцом отдельных брендов за пределами магазинов Sherwin-Willaims.

Глядя на 2018 год, Lowe's ожидает, что общий доход вырастет примерно на 4%, а сопоставимые продажи увеличатся примерно на 3,5%. Компания заявила, что планирует построить 10 новых магазинов в 2018 году.

На текущий момент акции Lowe's (LOW) котируются по $89,84 (-6,21%)

Shares have lost about 6.2% in that time frame, underperforming the market.

Will the recent negative trend continue leading up to its next earnings release, or is SHW due for a breakout? Before we dive into how investors and analysts have reacted as of late, let's take a quick look at the most recent earnings report in order to get a better handle on the important catalysts.

Sherwin-Williams' Q4 Earnings Trail Estimates, Revenues Beat

Sherwin-Williams logged net income from continuing operations of $897.4 million or $9.39 per share for the fourth quarter of 2017, up more than four-fold from $203 million or $2.15 per share recorded a year ago. The bottom line in the reported quarter was boosted by a one-time benefit of $7.04 per share from deferred income tax reductions.

Earnings, barring one-time items, came in at $2.95 per share, missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3.18.

Sherwin-Williams posted record fourth-quarter revenues of $3,979.6 million, up 43% year over year. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $3,941.2 million. Sales were driven by increased paint sales volumes in the Americas Group unit and the addition of Valspar sales since June 2017.

FY17 Results

For 2017, profit from continued operations was roughly $1.8 billion or $19.11 per share, compared with around $1.1 billion or $11.99 per share recorded an in 2016.

Net sales for 2017 were a record $14,983.8 million, up around 26% year over year. Sales from Valspar since June increased net sales by roughly 21% for the year.

Segment Review

The Americas Group unit registered net sales of $2.19 billion in the reported quarter, up around 9% on a year over year comparison basis. Revenues were driven by increased architectural paint sales volume across all end markets and higher selling prices.  

Net sales of the Consumer Brands Group unit surged around 89% to $571.6 million, driven by the addition of Valspar sales since June, partly masked by reduced volume sales to some of the unit’s retail customers. Valspar sales increased the division’s net sales by around 96% in the quarter.

Net sales from the Performance Coatings Group zoomed around 160% to $1.22 billion in the quarter owing to inclusion of Valspar sales and higher selling prices. Valspar sales contributed roughly 152% to the segment’s net sales in the quarter.

Financials and Shareholder Returns

Sherwin-Williams made no open market purchases of its common stock during the twelve months ended Dec 31, 2017. At the end of 2017, it had $204.2 million cash in hand, which it plans to use to fund operations and reduce debt.

Outlook

Sherwin-Williams projects mid-to-high single digit percentage increase in net sales year over year for first-quarter 2018. It also sees incremental sales from Valspar acquisition to be roughly $1 billion in the first quarter.

For full-year 2018, Sherwin-Williams projects mid-to-high single digit percentage increase in net sales from 2017. It also sees incremental sales from the Valspar buyout to be roughly $1.6 billion for the first five months of the year. At this level, the company expects earnings per share for the year to be in the range of $15.35 to $15.85 per share, compared with $18.67 earned in 2017. The guidance includes around $3.45 per share charge related to the Valspar acquisition.

How Have Estimates Been Moving Since Then?

It turns out, fresh estimates have trended downward during the past month. There has been one revision higher for the current quarter compared to two lower.

VGM Scores

At this time, SHW has a nice Growth Score of B, though it is lagging a bit on the momentum front with a C. Following the exact same course, the stock was also allocated a grade of C on the value side, putting it in the middle 20% for this investment strategy.

Overall, the stock has an aggregate VGM Score of C. If you aren't focused on one strategy, this score is the one you should be interested in.

Based on our scores, the stock is more suitable for growth investors than those looking for value and momentum.

Outlook

Estimates have been broadly trending downward for the stock and the magnitude of these revisions indicates a downward shift. Interestingly, SHW has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). We expect an in-line return from the stock in the next few months.

In the last quarter, the paints and coatings company reported a positive earnings surprise of 1.06% by posting adjusted earnings of $4.75 per share, which surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $4.70.

Sherwin-Williams recorded net sales of $4,507 million in the quarter, marking a 37.4% year-over-year rise. Revenues also topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $4,386.4 million.

The company topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters, while missing in one, delivering an average positive surprise of around 3.9%.

Shares of Sherwin-Williams have moved up 11.4% in the last three months, outperforming the industry’s 9.8% growth.

 


 

Can the company surprise investors again or is it heading for a possible pullback? Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement.

Factors at Play

Sherwin-Williams, during third-quarter earnings call, said that the Valspar integration plans and synergy progress is in line with its expectations, as the company remains focused on strengthening performance of core businesses and newly acquired businesses. The company has also implemented appropriate pricing actions to offset the impact of increasing raw material costs.

The company projects mid-to-high single digit percentage increase in net sales, year over year for fourth-quarter 2017. Sherwin-Williams expects earnings per share in the fourth quarter to be in the range of $1.97-$2.27, compared with $2.15 earned a year ago. The projected fourth-quarter earnings include a 98 cents charge associated with the Valspar acquisition.

For full-year 2017, Sherwin-Williams projects mid-single digit percentage increase in net sales from 2016. It also sees incremental sales from the Valspar buyout to be roughly $2.5 billion for the year. At this level, the company expects earnings per share for the year to be in the range of $11.20-$11.50, compared with $11.99 earned in 2016. The guidance includes a $3.21 per share charge related to the Valspar acquisition.

Net sales from the Americas Group segment for the fourth quarter is projected to decrease roughly 15.1% from the third quarter as the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the fourth quarter is currently pegged at $2,157 million. In the third quarter, the company witnessed a roughly 6.5% year-over-year increase in net sales for this segment, mainly driven by increased architectural paint sales volume in most end markets and higher selling prices, partly offset by the impact of natural disasters.

Net sales from the Consumer Brands Group segment for the fourth quarter is projected to decrease roughly 16.5% from the third quarter as the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the fourth quarter is currently pegged at $604 million. In the third quarter, the company witnessed an 81.6% year-over-year surge in net sales for this segment, mainly driven by the addition of Valspar sales since June 2017, partly masked by reduced volume sales to most of the unit’s retail customers.

Net sales from the Performance Coatings Group segment for the fourth quarter is projected to decrease roughly 8.7% from the third quarter as the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the fourth quarter is currently pegged at $1,132 million. In the third quarter, the company witnessed a 150.8% year-over-year increase in net sales for this segment, owing to inclusion of Valspar sales, increased paint sales volume and higher selling prices.

Sherwin-Williams’ aggressive cost-control initiatives, working capital reductions, supply chain optimization and productivity improvement should continue to yield margin benefits. Working capital management and efforts to cut operating costs are also helping the company to generate healthy cash flows.

The Valspar acquisition also enables Sherwin-Williams to strengthen its position as a leading paints and coatings provider globally, leveraging highly complementary offerings, strong brands and technologies. The buyout will extend Sherwin-Williams’ brand portfolio and customer relationships in North America, and bolster its global finishes business. Sherwin-Williams should gain from significant synergies of the Valspar acquisition.

 

Earnings Whispers

Our proven model does not conclusively show that Sherwin-Williams is likely to beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate this quarter. This is because a stock needs to have both a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) for this to happen.

Zacks ESP: Earnings ESP for Sherwin-Williams for the fourth quarter is 0.00%. This is because the Most Accurate estimate and the Zacks Consensus Estimate are both pegged at $3.18. You can uncover the best stocks to buy or sell before they’re reported with our Earnings ESP Filter.

Zacks Rank: Sherwin-Williams currently carries a Zacks Rank #2, which when combined with a 0.00% ESP, makes surprise prediction difficult.

Note that we caution against Sell-rated stocks (#4 or 5) going into the earnings announcement, especially when the company is seeing negative estimate revisions.

Stocks Poised to Beat Estimates

Here are some companies in the basic materials space you may want to consider as our model shows they have the right combination of elements to post an earnings beat this quarter:

Agnico Eagle Mines Limited AEM has an Earnings ESP of +20.99% and carries a Zacks Rank #2. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank stocks here.

LyondellBasell Industries N.V. LYB has an Earnings ESP of +0.55% and carries a Zacks Rank #2.

Kinross Gold Corporation KGC has an Earnings ESP of +2.27% and carries a Zacks Rank #3.

The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All

Last year, it generated $8 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $47 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.

Welcome to Episode #77 of the Value Investor Podcast

Every week, Tracey Ryniec, the editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio service, shares some of her top value investing tips and stock picks.

Recently, Warren Buffett gave an interview on CNBC where anchor Becky Quick asked him about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

He answered that he didn’t own any, wasn’t short any and would never have a position in them. Buffett then went on to say that they will come to a “bad ending” but he didn’t know when or how it would happen.

As you can imagine, he immediately came under attack from those in the crypto community for being out-of-touch, too old, and ignorant.

It’s nearly the identical response dot-commers had to his comments in the late 1990s.

Picking Winners in Emerging Technologies

When a new technology bursts on the scene, there are always dozens of competitors. After all, it’s seen as a gold rush and some people will get rich off of what is new.

In the 1800s, there were hundreds of railroads in the United States. But now, there are less than 10 big commercial railroad companies.

Similarly, there were thousands of automobile manufacturers and hundreds of domestic airlines when cars and airplanes came on the scene in the early 1900s.

But, again, today, the “winners” have won the contest. There are only a handful of big names in those industries. They are the survivors.

With cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, it’s so new, there’s no way of knowing who the winners may be. Buffett’s strategy, then, is to simply avoid those emerging technologies until winners can be determined.

Investing in the Old-School Winners

Why not invest in those that have become the winners in the older industries?

These companies, some of whom have survived for nearly two hundred years, are clearly doing something right.

1.      General Electric GE is one of the original Dow Industrial components. Becky Quick asked Buffett about GE in their interview but he wouldn’t say, due to compliance issues, if he was buying now that shares have plunged. Is it even cheap enough? It still has a forward P/E of 18.3.

2.     Masco MAS makes plumbing parts like faucets, paints, cabinets and countertops. Founded in 1929, it now has a $14 billion market cap. Earnings are expected to rise 18% in 2018 after jumping about 29% in 2017.

3.     Fortune Brands Home & Security FBHS makes cabinets and plumbing, including the Moen brand, but it also makes doors and security devices such as padlocks by Master Lock. With a $10 billion market cap, it’s expected to see double digit earnings growth in both 2017 and 2018.

4.     Sherwin Williams SHW recently acquired Valspar and is now one of the largest paint manufacturers in the world. Founded in 1866 in Cleveland, it’s still producing double digit earnings growth all of these years later with analysts expecting earnings to pop 25.5% in 2018.

5.     Deere & Company DE traces its roots all the way back to 1837 in Moline, Illinois. This agriculture and construction equipment giant has had a few tough years as farmers cut back on their equipment spending but is turning it around with fiscal 2018 earnings expected to jump 22%.

Sometimes, for investors, the tried and true is just as attractive as the shiny and new.

What else should you know about why Buffett is avoiding bitcoin and thinks the market isn’t over valued?
