New Stock Recommendation: Aixtron (AIXG)

AIXG – Aixtron (NASDAQ) – (Closing Price – $14.22) 

Stocks that are related to “green” technology have been some of the biggest gainers over the past year. However, a lot of these stocks (think solar companies) have already had tremendous run-ups in price and they are trading at very lofty valuations.

I have found a “green” company that is experiencing strong growth, trades at a lower valuation than most “green” stocks, and even pays a dividend. That company is Aixtron (AIXG).

Aixtron is a German manufacturer of equipment used to make LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes). Aixtron’s equipment is also used for other applications but I think the growth in LEDs will be the catalyst for strong growth at Aixtron for the next few years. (more…)

AIXG – Aixtron (NASDAQ) 

Aixtron has sold off considerably since my last update and I have not found any definitive reason for the sharp decline. However, I do have a theory about what might have happened.

Aixtron had been mentioned as a possible acquisition target of Applied Materials (AMAT). However, on June 6 Applied Materials announced it made a nonbinding proposal to acquire parts of ASM International (ASMI). The stock price of Aixtron dropped considerably in the days following the announcement. I believe some institution or hedge fund had taken a position in Aixtron solely because of its buyout potential and when the AMAT announcement came out they decided to bail. Since Aixtron has a low float this institutional selling caused a significant decline in the share price.

I think Aixtron is a good company to own regardless of a buyout and I think the institution or hedge fund that decided to dump Aixtron made a foolish decision. I still like the company and I am going to recommend buying some more and averaging down (I will use Friday’s closing price for calculation purposes). (more…)

AIXG – Aixtron (NASDAQ)
Aixtron reported Q1 results on May 8 and reported flat results. However, the company reaffirmed guidance which means the company should report considerable improvement in future quarters. I would continue to hold your shares.

CAAS – China Automotive Systems (NASDAQ)
The stock price of China Automotive Systems had a big jump after the company released impressive Q1 results but has sold off since. I think the stock price of CAAS has the potential to go much higher so I would be patient and continue to hold.

DTLK – Datalink (NASDAQ)
There has not been any major news released about Datalink. A positive article was written about the company though. I still rate the company a hold. (more…)

Free Stock Picks – May Report

AIXG – Aixtron (NASDAQ)
Aixtron has announced a couple of new orders since my initial recommendation and the stock price is already up 11%. A dividend will most likely be approved at the shareholders meeting on May 14 and this should provide a boost to the stock price. Aixtron reported Q1 results last year on May 8 so they should report earnings pretty soon.

AMR – American Airlines (NYSE)
All airline stocks had a strong rally since my initial recommendation but they pulled back on Friday due to profit taking and a rise in oil prices. AMR was already close to my price target but I didn’t give a sell recommendation because I think oil is going to continue to go down short term. I think the dollar will continue to strengthen and the demand for oil is going to decrease. This should push down oil prices and help airline stocks.

CAAS – China Automotive (NASDAQ)
China Automotive reported decent results in March and the stock price initially went up but has sold off since. They are set to report Q1 results this month so I will provide an update then. (more…)
