11-14-2018: Too Early to Write Off the Puerto Rican Economy

One might conclude the Puerto Rican economy has been devastated by hurricane damage. We read much about the slow recovery and lack of Federal assistance to a badly damaged territorial infrastructure. But, in some ways, Puerto Rico might be considered part of emerging markets and bargain value stocks to be found therein. Its association with other parts of Latin American and the Spanish-speaking world offer potential business opportunities for any company associated with the banking industry. Evertec, Inc. (EVTC) is associated with Banco Popular and develops payment processing systems. It received little damage from recent hurricanes and is active in assisting in recovery efforts. Its potential for business in other Latin American nations is significant. Evertec has the advantage of a "domestically based" company with U.S. SEC reporting requirements for its stock and at the same time the advantage of exposure to secire areas of emerging markets. Puerto Rican financial stocks as a group have been relatively strong.

The industry group "Financial Transaction Services" has been one of the strongest stock performers of late in an era of rising interest rates. Other ways to classify the stock such as "IT Services and Consulting" also have shown strength of late. Some caution in regard to Evertec however is suggested that by some measures it has not been adding much to shareholder value of late, i.e as shown by research organization "Mclean Capital." 

Our recent article on Evertec, Inc. (EVTC) is in the Archives Section Below.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 11/10/2018

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.

Stocks 1
Stocks 2
Stocks 3
Stocks 4

What are the last three entries in the Active Stocks chart list? These represent typical high-, mid-, and low-cap mutual funds to help us gage the tenor of the stock market as a whole.
