Sotheby's (NYSE:BID) - Why Ronnie Moas Is Running From Sothebys | Benzinga [cached]
On January 20, Standpoint Research's Ronnie Moas initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. Since that moment, the stock gained about 28 percent and 1570 bps versus the S&P 500. Given the recent and absolute move, Moas has now decided to downgrade his rating on the stock to Hold, arguing that the shares now seem reasonably valued.
Fundamentally, the company faces some challenges as well. While Moas acknowledged that there have been some strong auctions recently, he pointed out that, "the art market is slowing. In addition, he highlighted the recent talent departures at Sothebys. "With those departures go important ties and relationships," he noted.
In fact, management is projecting a difficult year, and is consequently using some excess cash to repurchase stock.
"I do not know what multiple the market will/could attach to BID EPS but I am a value guy and all I was looking for here was to catch a bounce off the oversold condition from January," Moas explicated.
After the important rally seen in the market since the February lows, it seems like a good moment to "lock in gains," the analyst continued. "I have a feeling Sell in May and Go Away may work this year."
Many stocks are still attractive at current valuations, 25 to 50 percent off their highs, Moas concluded.
Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE) - Ronnie Moas Downgrades Nucor To Hold: Here's Why | Benzinga [cached]
Ronnie Moas Downgrades Nucor To Hold: Here's Why
Ronnie Moas of Standpoint Research cut the rating of Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) to Hold from Buy on valuation.
Moas said since his recommendation on March 2, the stock surged 19 percent and outperformed the benchmark S&P 500 index by 1400 basis points.
The stock is trading at the $49 level, about $3 less than Moas' $52 price target and nearing the 52-week high of $50.70.
"I can no longer leave my highest recommendation attached to this name given the recent absolute and relative move. I remain with open recommendations on two other steel names SID (Brazil) up 16% today and PKX (Korea)," Moas wrote in a note.
"NUE is now trading @ 19X speculative estimates for next year with a 3% dividend yield," the analyst added.
According to TipRanks, Moas has a success rate of 68 percent with an average return per recommendation of +4.8 percent. The analyst is having a five-star rating and is ranked 61 out of 3,863 analysts.
Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY) - Moas On Tesla: 'I Wouldn't Pay $180 For This Thing' | Benzinga [cached]
Moas On Tesla: 'I Wouldn't Pay $180 For This Thing'
Ronnie Moas of Standpoint Research said the valuation of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) is "too high."
"I think the valuation of Tesla is completely disconnected from what my analysis is showing me. The market is treating Tesla as if it is an equivalent of a General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) or Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F). In fact, the revenue of GM and Ford is 20x times of what Tesla is," Moas told CNBC.
"On any metrics you look at it, the market is placing a best case scenario, disregarding all of my threats and concerns that I have looking out for a few years. I think the lot of the recent buying was due to short covering," he added.
Commenting on the 350K orders, the company has received so far for its Model 3, Moas said, "I am very, very skeptical.
Moas noted that even if Tesla gets to 500K units in 2020, GM and Ford combined will have 10 million units.
On a sarcastic note, Moas said, "You could buy Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU), Fluor Corporation (NEW) (NYSE: FLR), Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co (NASDAQ: GT), Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ: BBBY) and Harley-Davidson Inc (NYSE: HOG) with the money it would cost you to buy Tesla right now."
"Again, it is a company that has not generated a profit and I don't think the competitors of Tesla will remain silent and then Tesla is there launching in five years and that's not going to happen, they do have competition," he concluded.
"I wouldn't pay $180 for this thing."
Moas downgraded shares of Tesla to Sell and $180 price target on the stock, which is currently down 2.47 percent to $250.85.
According to TipRanks, Moas is rated No.1 and ranked 71 out of 3,854 analysts. He has a success rate of 68 percent, with an average return per recommendation of +4.7 percent.
Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) - This Analyst Is Selling Tesla: $60 Spike Was Just Shorts Exiting Their Positions | Benzinga [cached]
Ronnie Moas of Standpoint Research downgraded shares of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) on Thursday afternoon. The firm now has a Sell rating and $180 price target on the stock. Moas will appear on CNBC on Friday, to explain the reasons behind the demotion, however, he shared some comments from a report he sent to clients with Benzinga.
With the stock up about 70 percent since February 8, shares again seem overpriced, Moas said. Shares failed to break $280 in September 2014 and reversed below $190 in March 2015. The stock again tested the $280 resistance in June 2015, and yet again, reversed to $150 in February. The stock is now trading around $260, and Moas believes, "a third run at $280 will end in failure; a reversal; and break below $200."
So, what drove the stock up?

Moas believes the move was fueled by short covering - even though news about the Model 3 could be considered good.
He went on to compare Tesla with other automakers. The electric vehicles manufacturer may hit $15 billion in sales by 2018, while General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) is at $150 billion. The market is treating them almost as equals in terms of market cap, however, and Tesla is not Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) or, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), and Moas said the market shouldn't treat it as such.
