Recognized world leader Pizza Company Domino�� Pizza Inc.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, the domestic stores comprised 4,596 franchised stores and 390 company-owned stores. The International segment consists of 5,900 franchised stores outside the U.S. Generating nearly $3.8 billion in the U.S. and $4.2 billion internationally during 2013, Domino�� fourth-quarter 2013 results beat estimated figures for both earnings and revenues. Same-store sales popped 3.7% domestically and 7% internationally, while diluted earnings per share leaped 21.9% to $0.78. It was the 80th quarter and 20th full year in a row of international same-store sales growth for Domino's.

The franchise owner-operators system and the increased emphasis on technology innovation have pushed revenues 5% year over year. Moreover, the digital ordering system installed by the company, with ordering apps for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 8 and Kindle Fire generated approximately 40% of sales in the U.S. International segment has been showing promising results, with significant growth potential: Management expects international same store sales growth of 3 6%. Still, this industry is always subjected to macroeconomic pressures and cyclicality, putting these companies in certain risk of being affected by these setbacks.

  • [By David Fabian]

    A mid-year checkup reveals that the Utility Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLU) and Energy Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLE) are far outstripping the broader market in total returns.  Both ETFs have gained approximately 15.50 percent in 2014, while the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSE: SPY) has notched a modest seven percent advance.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    For smaller companies, though, those dynamics are more important. Rising natural-gas prices should help producers enhance their profits and drive more investment into the nat-gas industry again, boding well for the energy services companies that make natural-gas production possible. Investors are clearly excited, as the Energy Select Sector SPDR (NYSEMKT: XLE  ) has hit new five-year highs just within the past month, and if those trends continue, then energy should have more room to run.

    Fair Value: In calculating fair value, I consider the NPV MMA Differential Fair Value along with these four calculations of fair value, see page 2 of the linked PDF for a detailed description:

    1. Avg. High Yield Price
    2. 20-Year DCF Price
    3. Avg. P/E Price
    4. Graham Number

    NUE is trading at a premium to all four valuations above. The stock is trading at a 85.8% premium to its calculated fair value of $28.51. NUE did not earn any Stars in this section.

    Dividend Analytical Data: In this section there are three possible Stars and three key metrics, see page 2 of the linked PDF for a detailed description:

    1. Free Cash Flow Payout
    2. Debt To Total Capital
    3. Key Metrics
    4. Dividend Growth Rate
    5. Years of Div. Growth
    6. Rolling 4-yr Div. > 15%

    NUE earned one Star in this section for 2.) above. The stock earned a Star as a result of its most recent Debt to Total Capital being less than 45%. The company has paid a cash dividend to shareholders every year since 1973 and has increased its dividend payments for 40 consecutive years.

    Dividend Income vs. MMA: Why would you assume the equity risk and invest in a dividend stock if you could earn a better return in a much less risky money market account (MMA) or Treasury bond? This section compares the earning ability of this stock with a high yield MMA. Two items are considered in this section, see page 2 of the linked PDF for a detailed description:

    1. NPV MMA Diff.
    2. Years to > MMA

    The negative NPV MMA Diff. means that on a NPV basis the dividend earnings from an investment in NUE would be less than a similar amount invested in MMA earning a 20-year average rate of 3.68%. If NUE grows its dividend at 0.7% per year, it will never equal a MMA yielding an estimated 20-year average rate of 3.68%.

    Memberships and Peers: NUE is a member of the S&P 500, a Dividend Aristocrat, a member of the Broad Dividend Achievers

Advisors' Opinion:
  • [By John Udovich]

    Small cap patent stocks Spherix Inc (NASDAQ: SPEX), PDL BioPharma Inc (NASDAQ: PDLI) and Endeavor IP Inc (OTCBB: ENIP) are among the�growing number of publicly traded�US entities focused on collecting and making money from various types of patents. After all, monetizing patents can lead to incredible returns. For example: Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund wrote in a research note back in November that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) is generating $2 billion per year in revenue from Android patent royalties and he�estimates that this revenue has a 95% margin. However, there are risks associated with investing in stocks that invest in patents because a bi-partisan bill called the Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) is�working its way through Congress to try and reign in the activities of so-called�"patent trolls" or rather companies that buy or license patents from others.
