Which Offers The Best Return? Papa Murphy’s Holdings Inc (FRSH) and Hatteras Financial Corp (HTS)
New York, NY – GDP INSIDER – 03/26/2015.
This article discusses two companies: Papa Murphy’s Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:FRSH) and Hatteras Financial Corp (NYSE:HTS)
Papa Murphy’s Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:FRSH) continued to climb yesterday and posted its 10th consecutive gain, with the stock up another 5.78% or $1.06 to close at $19.41 on very active trading of 1.167 million shares, compared to its three month average trading volume of 0.170 million. The operator and franchiser of Take N Bake Pizza has been having a very impressive year so far with the stock vastly outperforming the S&P 500 up 63.89% YTD, compared to the index which has only gained 0.10% for the same period. With quarterly revenue growth of 24.80% year on year in a very competitive market Papa Murphy’s Holdings Inc has good long term potential. The main issue at the moment is that it has RSI of 90.28 which would normally indicate that the stock is overvalued, but is more likely that it will find a new trading range around its current level, making it a hold with a view to buy.
Hatteras Financial Corp (NYSE:HTS) fell back slightly yesterday with the stock declining 0.61% or $0.11 to close at $18.03 on higher than normal trading of 1.524 million shares, compared to its three month average trading volume of 0.758 million. The externally managed mortgage real estate investment trust has been fairly volatile for the last month trading between the range of $17.53 and $18.85. Overall, Hatteras Financial Corp has not been performing especially well so far this year, with the stock underperforming the S&P 500 since the beginning of February and is now down 2.16% YTD. With negative quarterly revenue growth of -19.70% the stock has reason to decline, but it is still managing to maintain a dividend yield 10.20% which is keeping investors from selling out. With a one year target estimate of $20.18 there is still significant potential upside to the stock, making it a hold and if market conditions improve a possible medium term buy.
