Last Week's Buy Ratings & More: MDA, RH, IIPR, RY, WSM, plus JPM Earnings Analysis
Hey everyone,

Below are our most recent buy ratings from the past week, which are free to read.

Besides the buy ratings, check out our JPM article from last week titled “Using JPMorgan's Earnings Call For Recession Clues” where we break down the biggest bank’s earnings to determine if a recession is coming soon or not.

Note: This is NOT professional financial advice.

Most of these Buy ratings are in downtrends, meaning that the chances for more short-term downside are high (as traders, we know this to be true). The ratings are not based on technical analysis. They are meant for long-term investors that have a long-term time frame.

Anyways, here they are:

  1. MDA to the Moon, Literally (TSX: MDA)

MDA is an established Canadian space technology company with a long history of success and innovation. It’s been around for more than 50 years. We are bullish due to its successful history, high efficiency, and good valuation. It is roughly 50% off its all-time highs.


  1. RH Stock: More Resilient than Investors Think

$RH, also known as Restoration Hardware, sells furniture, lighting, textiles, decor, and more. It has been beaten down as well, currently 57% off its highs. This offers a decent entry point for long-term investors.


  1. IIPR Stock: Sell Short at Your Own Risk

Innovative Industrial Properties ($IIPR) is a triple-net-lease cannabis REIT. Essentially, it makes money from owning cannabis properties and leasing them out to other cannabis companies. It is HIGHLY profitable and pays a nice, quickly-growing dividend.

This stock has done very well historically, but now, it is about 45% off its highs. It got pushed down even lower by a short-seller report that is likely to not have much merit to it (similar to a 2020 short-seller report on the company).


  1. Royal Bank of Canada: Does Valuation Outweigh Headwinds?

Royal Bank of Canada ($RY) is Canada’s largest bank in terms of market capitalization. We believe that big Canadian banks have competitive advantages due to the oligopoly they enjoy, and we believe that RY stock is undervalued.


  1. Williams-Sonoma: Dividends, Buybacks Offer High Return Potential

Williams-Sonoma ($WSM) sells home products like furniture, bedding, lighting, rugs, and more. Currently 39% off its highs, we believe this is another good stock for the long term. Its low valuation allows the company to buy back many shares on top of having a respectable, growing dividend. It also has high returns on capital, steady growth, and record profit margins despite high inflation.

February earnings
I think upcoming earnings are going to be really important in this volatile market. Companies will likely get punished (further) on even slightly bad results or outlook, and I'm hopeful strong earnings like we saw with $TEAM or $AAPL will buoy the overall market or at least software sector that I'm playing close attention to.

Personally, I have a handful of companies on my buy list including $CRM, $COUP, $ESTC, $SMAR, $POSH, but will only do so once they make it past earnings either scathed (lower price) or unscathed (peace of mind) :)

So we've put together our most anticipated earnings for all of Feb!


Keep an eye out!

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Nov. 29 - Dec. 3)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This week was light on earnings reports, but next week is shaping up to be very interesting in the stock market. None of my holdings report, but I'm still interested in listening to the $CRM, $CRWD, $SNOW and $DOCU earnings calls.

I'm also hoping we get post-earnings commentary on $CRM from @gkotak, $DOCU from @invesquotes and $OKTA from @tolvkin so that I can learn more about these companies.

Remember, if you'd like an easier way to track earnings dates, you can automatically sync your portfolio's earning dates to your personal calendar with just a couple of clicks here.
