More changes to IC TOP 10 BUY RATED

The past week, was a relatively quiet one for the IC TOP 10 with far fewer changes than in the prior week with the markets seeming to be in a short-term consolidation phase with the release of the vast majority of the second quarter.
There are just two changes to the Junior Market list and none for the main market for this week but there are no changes to the Main Market TOP 10.
Jetcon Corporation climbed from $1.58 last week, to close at $2.50 while Caribbean Cream closed with the bid at $4.85, leading both out of the TOP 10 and letting Jamaican Teas with the price dropping to $5.61 from $6 and CAC 2000 with the price now at $15, down from $15.15 at the close of the previous week. The attractiveness of CAC 2000, is based on a strong recovery in the April quarter and the positive implications it has for the 2020 results. Jamaican Teas had good results for the nine months to June and the stock price has not yet fully discounted them.
General Accident was the second most attractive Junior Market stocks last week, hit a new record high of $6.24 on Friday and moved down to number 4 spot, with projected gains of 156 percent to March next year on top of the 73 percent rise for 2019 to date. Investors should not ignore the strong growth in revenues of 41 percent that is underway that has strong implications for increased profit and dividend income.
The three most attractive Junior Market stocks are Caribbean Producers with projected gains of 244 percent, followed by Iron Rock with likely gains of 200 percent and Medical Disposables with projected gains of 170 percent.
Radio Jamaica with projected gains of 194 percent leads the main market followed by Carreras with projected gains of 128 percent and Berger Paints 121 percent.  Investors should start looking at 2020 that is just four months away for the companies that may be a bit pricey but are likely to generate above-average growth next year.
The main market closed the week with the overall PE of 16.6 down from 17 at the close of the previous week and the Junior Market remains at 12.8 current year’s earnings. The PE ratio for Junior Market Top 10 stocks averages 8.3 and the main market PE is now 10.2. These levels, point to a strong upside for TOP 10 stocks over the next 12 months and Junior Market stocks in particular as they lag, the values of the main market by a third.
The TOP 10 stocks now trade at an average discount of 35 percent to the average for the Junior Market Top stocks and main market stocks trade at a discount of 39 percent to the overall market.
TOP 10 stocks are likely to deliver the best returns to March next year. Projected earnings, for each company’s current fiscal year, are used in determining, the selected stocks. The PE for and projected earnings for each stock are computed to show potential gains for the year, which are ranked in descending order. Potential values will change as stock prices fluctuate and will result in movements of the selection in and out of the lists for most weeks. Earnings per share are revised on an ongoing basis as new information is received that can result in changes in and out of the list.
