Stock market today A US stock market sell-off today, Dow Jones fell 650 points, Nasdaq lost 189 points, and small-cap stocks underperformed. At the close today the numbers for the US stock market are as follows: S&P 500: 3,400.97,-64.42(-1.86%)Dow 30: 27,685.38,-650.19(-2.29%)Nasdaq: 11,358.94,-189.34(-1.64%)Russell 2000: 1,601.44,-39.06(-2.38%) Stock market data: Yahoo Finance Stock market news “Stocks pointed sharply lower Monday as new data showed a jump in COVID-19 cases in both the U.S. and Europe. Restrictions tightened across major countries overseas, raising the specter of a further pullback in business operations and deeper anchor on global economic activity. Losses accelerated around 11 a.m. ET, with the Dow dropping more than 650 points, or 2%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq each also retreated sharply. Shares of companies set to benefit from a broader economic reopening including airlines like American Airlines (AAL), cruise lines including Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) and hotels like Wynn Resorts (WYNN) sank. Shares of AstraZeneca (AZN), on the other hand, outperformed after the Financial Times reported that its COVID-19 vaccine candidate developed with the University of Oxford produced a robust immune response in elderly individuals. The U.S. posted back-to-back days of record-high new virus cases over the weekend, with new virus cases topping 80,000 for each of Friday and Saturday. States in the West and Midwest have been hardest hit by the latest jump in cases. France endured its own record-high day for new coronavirus cases on Sunday, when the country reported more than 52,000 positive cases over a 24-hour period. Two-thirds of the country became subject to a previously announced 9 p.m. curfew starting Friday night. In Italy, which hit a record-high for new cases last week, new business restrictions came into effect Sunday. Spain declared a state of emergency over the weekend, which also included a country-wide curfew. “Markets ultimately care about the economic impact of pandemic news,” UBS economist Paul Donovan said in a note Monday morning. “Italy and Spain have followed France in adopting the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ approach (it is not safe to be out of doors after dark). This is obviously bad news for bars and restaurants, but more positive for supermarkets and home entertainment.” Elsewhere, shares of Boeing (BA), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Raytheon Technologies (RTX) came under pressure in early trading after China said it would impose sanctions on the defense units of both companies, following the U.S. approval of a $1.8 billion arms sale to Taiwan last week. China, which considers Taiwan to be part of its territory, has not yet specified the sanctions that will be put into place.” Source: Yahoo Finance

The company has several well-known publications and provides content marketing, targeted local print and digital advertising programs, branded book publishing, and marketing and support services, including subscription sales services for magazines and other products, retail distribution and marketing services, and customer service and fulfillment services, for the company and third-party clients, including other magazine publishers. Key Information: Stock price close on 14th November 2016: $13.70 Market Cap 1.36B Beta N/A PE Ratio (TTM) -15.15 52 Week Range 12.23 – 17.66 Dividend & Yield 0.76 (5.80%) Fundamental Analysis: We will have a 5 year financial analysis of important fundamental metrics such as revenues, profit margins, net income, earnings per share, cash flow and balance sheet, examining years 2011 to 2015.Starting with revenues first thing we notice is a steady 5 year decline in revenues growth. For each of the last 5 years the company has made less sales compared to previous years. So we have a 5 year negative growth rate for revenues. Current sales growth for year 2015 is -5.43%. What is remarkable is the fact that gross margin shows a stability for the 5 years period, currently at +60.72% having a range of +62.12%/+60.72%. But net margin shows a different story. It has followed the same path as sales, declining for each of the last 5 years ranging from +10.01% during 2011, the highest piece to -28.39% for year 2015, which is the lowest for the 5 year range. Net income after taxes shows a declining trend for the last 5 years ranging from +368 millions in 2011, the highest point to our range to -881 millions in 2015, the lowest point of reference. Diluted normalized EPS show a steady declining trend for the 5 years period ranging from 3.54 the highest price in the range in 2011, to -1.72 in 2015, the lowest point in the range. Cash flow analysis shows that cash from operating activities remain positive for each of the 5 years, but still showing a declining trend, ranging from 474 millions in 2011,the highest point in our range to 154 millions in year 2015, the lowest point in the range. Free cash flow follows the same trend as operating cash flow, a declining trend from 426 millions in 2011, the highest point in our range to -58 millions for year 2015, the lowest point to the range. And also turned negative from positive. Balance Sheet: What we can notice for the 5 years analysis are the following. A decrease of total assets and total equity, an increase of total liabilities and mainly a huge increase in total debt ranging from 34 millions in 2011, the lowest point in our range to 1,293 millions in year 2015, the highest point in the range. Current ratio for year 2015 is 1.26 and quick ratio is 1.23, both above 1 which is considered as a safe ratio but most importantly also both ratios are currently at the highest price for the 5 years range. Debt/Equity ratio has skyrocketed the last 5 years and is currently at 0.7178, the highest point in the time range but still below the price of 1, again considered safe. Relative value analysis: Comparing the Net Profit Margin, Return on Equity, Interest Coverage ratios we notice that TIME INC NEW Com has lower ratios than the industry ratios. Price to cash flow ratio is also higher for the company compared to the ratio of the industry. However the company has a higher dividend yield than the dividend yield of the industry. Growth prospects: The company has a current PEG ratio of 2.21 and estimated earnings growth for next 3-5 years of 5%.During last 4 quarters the stock has only one positive earnings surprise and the consensus for earnings in year 2017 has been in decline. Technical Analysis: The stock has been recently in a downtrend and current price of $13.70 is blow moving averages of 50 days and 200 days, currently at 13.83 and 14.58 respectively. However the stock has made a recent bounce from low price range of about $12.5 per share, while momentum indicators such as MACD,Stochastics and RSI show bullish momentum and are not at extreme levels. Conclusion: We strongly believe that unless a radical financial improvement happens our recommendation is to avoid buying the stock. In fact we favor selling the stock at any strong rally as very poor financial performance and a technical analysis that shows the stock is still in downtrend does not give us any strong argument to buy the stock.
