Ten baggers??

Peter Lynch is epitomized as one of the greatest fund managers and is associated with the term “ten baggers” stock picks that went up ten times their initial value. In his book “One up on Wall Street” he mentions stocks like La Quinta hotels where he spotted a long term trend in increasing business travel and saw potential in this stock. Ok so today is my day to play Peter Lynch.

One long term trend I have often blogged about is the ageing of America and the bounty coming the way of pharma and healthcare firms. (disclosure: I own JNJ. PFE & IYH). Another take on this is same theme is “Assisted living”, started doing some research on this when my realtor mentioned that she had two clients who were selling their homes and moving to assisted living centers. These are companies that own assisted living centers and provide healthcare and nursing to seniors.

The big boys here are Sunrise Senior Living Inc (NYSE:SRZ), Beverly Enterprises Inc. (NYSE:BEV), and Manor Care Inc (NYSE:HCR). This week Beverly Enterprise was bought out by North American Senior Care Inc. That leaves us with just two SRZ & HCR. My recommendation would be either of these HCR has a $3.2B market cap about three times that of SRZ, both have fairly strong balance sheets (debt/equity between 0.33 & 0.53). HCR does have a dividend yield of 1.5% and that always helps. But this is a rapidly consolidating industry and SRZ could be a take over play. The other advantage of this industry is that it’s a combined play on two themes “elderly healthcare” and “real estate”.

Another trend that I have observed is amongst the not so old crowd the fastest growing pastime in America is NASCAR racing. The statistics are compelling about 6.6 million plus households tune in to every race. The growth has been 10% plus per year and this is not a red state phenomenon (the biggest markets are Atlanta, Philadelphia, L.A., Dallas and New York). So who takes home the bacon again three players stand to benefit International Speedway Crop (Nasdaq : ISCA), Speedway Motorsports (NYSE : TRK ) & the much smaller Dover Motorsports (NYSE : DVD). These companies own speedways where the stock car races are help. ISCA is the biggest with ownership of 14 speedways including the top rated Daytona Beach speedway, followed by TRK with eight and the smaller DVD with four races.

ISCA has a market cap of $2.8B and is about twice that of TRK. The much smaller DVD has a market cap of $280M, but trades at a P/E Multiple of 57 almost double that of its bigger brethren. So how do these folks make money, well they have four streams ticket sales, TV & radio broadcast rights, food & beverage sales and sponsorships (think Nextel & Home Depot)

My bets for the next 5-10 years would be on Manor Care Inc (NYSE:HCR ) & International Speedway Crop (Nasdaq : ISCA).

I agree,

I love Nascar Racing. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

check it out if something like this interests you.

They just released IPO'S for Nascar Racing this week, so there are alot of good deals there.

Keep up the good work on your blog!

Link Trading and 3 way link trading. Now it is hard enough to figure out who you traded with, did the site you trade with count for you or not, then you add in 3 way linking. I think this requires a partnership of sorts. Finding 1 other person to do this with you. Even with 2 people it can get confusing. If you find a great site to add your link to who gets the link posted, etc. reciprocal link trading
