Copart (CPRT): Five Reasons To Terminate This Stock

by Sonya Colberg, Senior Editor, 6/28/2016 10:01:38 AM

Copart (Nasdaq: CPRT) has barely felt the losses now running cyborg-like through auto stocks after the British exit vote.

But that will quickly change.

As soon as the Copart double-digit exposure to the United Kingdom market becomes evident, even the Terminator himself could be expected to turn tail and run from this stock.

Copart is in the online junk-car business. The Dallas-based company sells recycled scrap cars to the public, vehicle dismantlers, exporters, etc. in the United States and elsewhere, including Britain.

Britain voted Thursday to exit from the European Union. Stock losses are extending as global markets consider the potential economic turmoil and the uncertainties. Now Copart is vulnerable ...

 
 
(Source: imdb.com)
 
Indeed, Brexit has conspired with other issues to prepare Copart for - not a rise of the machines - but a brutal fall.
 
Investors may find other viewpoints here. Meanwhile, consider the top five reasons TheStreetSweeper believes Copart investors might want to run for safety.
 
First, here are TheStreetSweeper's executive bullet points:

*About 18.7% of Copart revenue faces exposure to European concerns.

*Brexit is expected to exacerbate Europe’s declining used car sales.

*Any economic squeeze can cut driving, accident claims and Copart’s business.

*A sluggish economy also creates more uninsured drivers who typically just fix their cars, meaning fewer cars for Copart to salvage out.

*Since the Brexit vote, other auto stocks have suffered double-digit declines.

*Copart has ~$137m in cash … and a $96 million “demand for payment” of back taxes and penalties.

* Insiders are selling their stock.

 



SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG): Insider Selling, Rival Actions Cool Off This Stock

by Sonya Colberg, Senior Editor, 6/23/2016 11:48:38 AM

Just beneath investors' radar, SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) is fighting a feud worthy of the infamous Hatfields and McCoys. There will be no "hog trial" this time around but today's revenge-fueled struggle would make those rival clans proud.

(Clan leaders William "Devil Anse" Hatfield, Randolph "Rand'l" McCoy. Source: tourpikecounty)

Indeed, SolarEdge's chief rival, Enphase Energy, is heating up the feud with the launch of a potential game-changer. One solar contractor predicts Enphase's new battery backup system for homes will make SolarEdge technology virtually obsolete.

And risks just keep piling up against this solar power systems inverter. (Inverters change solar panels' DC electricity into AC or alternative current for use by in-home appliances and community electricity grids).

When the gunsmoke clears this time, a most unfortunate loser will stumble out ... current SolarEdge stockholders.

Investors may find other viewpoints on Israel-based SolarEdge here. Meanwhile, TheStreetSweeper presents a brief executive summary, followed by details on the top reasons we dislike this stock.

Executive bullet points:

*Extreme insider selling exceeding $25 million. What do they know that the market has missed?

*Singularly focused rival Enphase pressures SolarEdge with new technology and severe, continuing price cuts.

*SolarEdge has been forced to cut prices. And its new rollout has been delayed by as much as half a year.

*Chinese vendors are crowding into the commercial side of SolarEdge’s business with bargain rate products, likely forcing more price cuts.

 

*1. Smart Insiders: Bid SolarEdge Stock Goodbye

Insiders have been unloading their company stock. Year-to-date, insiders have sold well over $25 million worth of stock - an action that could be a sell signal for other investors, too.

Indeed, insider buying is virtually nonexistent compared with insider selling:

Maybe insiders know something the market has missed ... something like the following huge risks....

*2. Grudge Match: Old Nemesis Plots Revenge - Aggressive Price Cuts, New Tech

Not long ago, Enphase Energy (ENPH) was a big ol' boy in the business.

The maker of solar microinverters claimed bragging rights until SolarEdge came along with a cheaper alternative and stole away market share.

A grudge match ensued. Now Enphase is determined to shove SolarEdge aside by introducing new technology and aggressive price cuts.

*3. Kicker: "Rolls Royce" Enphase Ups The Game

"Enphase ... is the Rolls Royce of all inverters in the industry," according to a solar contractor who spoke with TheStreetSweeper.

He said Enphase has introduced a battery backup for homes that is incompatible with SolarEdge.

The SolarEdge technology involves DC current that must be converted to usable energy before it can charge a battery. Enphase's microinverter, however, has already converted DC to usable AC energy that charges the battery. 

(Source: Enphase)

The new AC battery is part of the Enphase system, including microinverter, networking hub and an energy tracking system that lets homes and businesses monitor how much solar energy they are generating and using. Then the system determines whether the solar energy should be stored or used.

(Source: Enphase energy storage system)

Enphase launched the AC battery last month in Australia and New Zealand as part of its international expansion. The United States launch is planned later this year.

"We expect the initial demand to be driven by installers looking to retrofit existing residential solar PV systems," Enphase executive Nathan Dun told PV Magazine. "Emphase expects the next wave of demand to be driven by new solar PV system owners enticed by the elegance and simplicity of our solution"

If people like the new Enphase system well enough, SolarEdge could lose serious market share...

JAMN Finally Spills the Beans -- And It's an Ugly Mess

by Janice Shell, 6/2/2011 10:32:51 AM

* Editor's Note: Readers can access links to additional backup documents for this story by clicking here for TheStreetSweeper's original investigative report on this company.

Late Tuesday afternoon, after missing earlier deadlines, Jammin Java (OTC: JAMN.OB) filed a long-awaited annual report packed with enough eye-opening news to keep investors up all night. That mandatory filing, unaccompanied with a cheerful press release heralding its arrival, served as a painful wake-up call to shareholders already burned by a rapid plunge in the company’s stock price.

To be sure, the 10-K offered investors little reason to sing. For starters, the filing reveals, this once-hot “coffee company” sells no coffee of its own at all. JAMN relies on a supplier based in frigid Canada – far away from the tropical Jamaican home of its co-founder Rohan Marley – to provide the company with an actual product to sell to its customers instead.

Back in April of 2010, JAMN inked a “supply and toll agreement” with Canterbury Coffee of British Columbia that gave it access to some brew. According to that agreement, JAMN relies on Canterbury to fulfill every role – save a minor one – normally satisfied by a firm that classifies itself as a coffee company. Canterbury purchases the coffee beans. It roasts them. And it then packages them in bags supplied by JAMN – the company’s only real product – for sale to the public.

JAMN signed this deal more than a year ago, right before Shane Whittle – a notorious Vancouver stock promoter – officially resigned as CEO of the company. But the company never mentioned that agreement, seemingly material enough to warrant at least a quiet 8-K report, in a single regulatory filing until now.   

Jammin Java (JAMN): Hot Stock ... Bitter Aftertaste?

by Janice Shell, 6/2/2011 10:30:25 AM

It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee! That’s exactly what Jammin Java (OTC: JAMN.OB), a heavily promotedcoffee company, and – for very different reasons – TheStreetSweeper would like investors to do.

Since the beginning of the year, JAMN has miraculously risen from the ashes of the “Grey Market” graveyard to become one of the liveliest – and richest – stocks in the entire microcap arena. JAMN has seen its stock shoot straight toward heaven, soaring from 55 cents to peak above $6 a share on massive daily volume, with its market value nowtopping $355 million despite the company’s limited resources and operating history. (As covered in more detail below, two of the Internet tout sheets pushing JAMN the hardest effectively vanished -- disabled by their Internet servers -- on the day the stock’s trading volume exploded past 20 million shares.) 

JAMN stands out for its powerful connections, the first loudly celebrated by the company and the second – involving a notorious stock promoter – carefully hidden from view.


 

CCME: Few Signs of Life at 'Healthy' Chinese Firm

by Roddy Boyd, 3/23/2011 9:30:34 AM

* Editor's Note: This story has been republished with permission from The Financial Investigator. To access the original article, complete with links to back-up documents, click here.

In the maze of thronged and narrow streets that makes up Fujian province’s capital city of Fuzhou, a deft driver, if he’s willing–as all Chinese drivers apparently are–to nearly kill or injure vast numbers of his countrymen can take you to the foot of Dongjie street. There was little reason to be there save for its having the headquarters of a company called China MediaExpress Holdings (Nasdaq: CCME), an enterprise that seems to be able to weather allegations about its business that would have forced the share price collapse of a company five times its size. The attention of bulls and bears is not misplaced: In a mere four years as a public company, it has apparently come to dominate the ad placement market for leading multinational consumer products companies on a network of what it claims is more than 27,000 buses on Chinese airport and intercity routes.

Also, and this cannot be understated, hanging out on a sidewalk in Fujian–the sidewalks double as parking spots when the streets, which appeared to have been designed in the Han Dynasty, fill up–was not a viable option. There was also the matter of the world-class headache the Financial Investigator was developing from Fuzhou’s diabolical smell, an epic conflation of poor sewage treatment, air pollution and the smell of cabbage that made getting the hell off Dongjie street a matter of vital importance.

The Financial Investigator and his traveling companion for the trip, an American investor with extensive experience in China, decided to head upstairs despite our interview with the CFO having been cancelled at the last minute (with no explanation given.) We thought a quick tour of the offices and meeting a few other executives might open our eyes to a few things.

It did.

Though the language barrier was a little steep with the young receptionist–when we asked for writing paper, she provided Kleenex–we were in short order shown to their conference room and told to wait. It did not escape notice that pride of place in the conference room belonged to a framed certificate of participation from the Fall 2010 Rodman & Renshaw conference, the World Cup for reverse merger companies and the pumpers and touts who peddle them.

Eventually chief operating officer James Yu came down and after spending 30 minutes trying to understand who we were, concluded that giving us a tour wouldn’t hurt. Soon enough, his colleague, Vinne Ye–the chairman’s assistant–came out and took us around.

It was most eye-opening.

Investors must be properly armed in order to protect themselves against the dangers of Wall Street. To help out, The Street Sweeper has mined the Internet for the most powerful weapons available to investors researching publicly traded companies. In our “Loaded Weapons” section, you’ll find direct links to corporate documents filed with the SEC, conference call transcripts published by Seeking Alpha, insider stock sales tracked by Insider-Monitor.com and popular investment tools offered by Yahoo! Finance. You can also identify the promoters behind current penny stock campaigns – and the compensation they are receiving – by connecting to StockPromoters.com. You can link to other websites that are conducting topnotch stock investigations as well. Click here now.

When investors begin their homework on small-cap companies - particularly on penny stocks - they should probably start with an important history lesson. Specifically, they should conduct background checks on their stockbrokers and the companies those brokers are touting.
 
The Street Sweeper has designed a cheat sheet of sorts to help out with this research. Our “Rap Sheet” section links to a free tool (sponsored by FINRA) that allows ordinary investors to review the backgrounds of individual stockbrokers and their brokerage firms. The section also links to whistleblower cases and class-action lawsuits targeting publicly traded companies. It provides access to recent news of SEC enforcement actions and FBI white-collar crime investigations as well.
