Robinhood Crowd Misses Out on Convertible Bonds
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- It’s growing more likely by the day that we’ve reached peak “bored retail trader” in the financial markets.Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal and seemingly every financial news publication has now profiled Dave Portnoy, founder of the website Barstool Sports, who has turned to day-trading stocks with sports on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. Robinhood Financial’s trading app is all the rage, being credited with the shocking rally in shares of bankrupt Hertz Global Holdings Inc. that almost prompted an unthinkable offering of potentially worthless stock. My Bloomberg Opinion colleague Matt Levine has called this entire phenomenon the “boredom markets hypothesis.” If this trend is close to running its course, more traditional investors might want to consider what happens when the music stops and Portnoy’s No. 1 rule — “stocks only go up” — doesn’t work so flawlessly. The S&P 500 Index’s sharp rally from its March lows is already starting to fizzle, with the index down more than 3% during the past two weeks. While hardly backbreaking, it’s the largest loss over such a sustained period since the worst of the selloff three months ago. Even sideways trading for the summer would violate the day trader’s mantra.Fortunately for sophisticated investors who might side with Warren Buffett and Leon Cooperman over the Robinhood crowd, there’s an intriguing asset class for this crossroads: convertible bonds.The securities, which can be swapped for shares at specified prices, have already been having something of a moment. The Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Convertibles Composite Total Return index jumped to a record on June 8 and remains close to that lofty level. Convertible bonds have gained 7.8% so far in 2020, better than the 5% return on investment-grade corporate bonds and the roughly 3% loss for the S&P 500. I’ve written before about how it seems as if there’s something inherently “cheap” about convertibles that boosts returns above and beyond a mix of stocks and bonds. Part of it might be the types of companies that offer such securities. Within the Bloomberg Barclays index, some of the biggest names include Tesla Inc., Carnival Corp., Southwest Airlines Co., Microchip Technology Inc. and Workday Inc. In other words, a combination of technology companies that have powered the U.S. stock market rally and brand-name businesses particularly harmed by the coronavirus but part of the “recovery trade” strategy. American Airlines Group Inc. is in the market selling convertible notes, too.Some of these individual companies are favorites of the new day-trading crowd. But for those who want to bet on convertible bonds, and specifically to keep trading relatively small sums with zero commission, the $4 trillion exchange-traded fund market is probably their best bet. Yet even the asset class’s sharp rally hasn’t been enough to lure individuals from the thrill of wagering on the trendy stock pick of the day. Consider the $717 million iShares Convertible Bond exchange-traded fund (ticker ICVT), which has soared since March and is up more than 6% this month alone. A few weeks ago, it looked as if it might have been discovered — on June 3, its assets increased by 21% as investors poured a net $108.3 million into the fund, the most since its inception roughly five years ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It gained an additional $69 million on June 9, good for the second-biggest inflow ever. On the flip side, State Street’s $4.47 billion SPDR Bloomberg Barclays Convertible Securities ETF (ticker CWB) suffered an outflow of $107.6 million on June 10, the largest daily withdrawal on record, followed by a $75 million exodus on June 11. That’s a stark contrast to the tens of billions of dollars flowing into credit ETFs.That seeming lack of interest is just fine for investors like Eli Pars, co-chief investment officer and head of alternative strategies at Calamos Advisors. The Naperville, Illinois-based firm is the largest public holder of convertible bonds issued in April by Carnival and Southwest Airlines, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.“It’s a great way to play the stock market in a less volatile way,” he said in a phone interview. While this is the common elevator pitch for investing in convertibles, the securities backed up that claim during March’s turbulence by tumbling less than benchmark equity indexes. That’s because investors can always fall back on interest payments if equity prices fall while capitalizing on a rally because the value of the option to convert to shares increases as well.Pars says convertibles are compelling for those with significant equity holdings who want to dial back their risk a bit after the sharp rebound in the past three months, or for those who sat out the entire rally and want some protection from a reversal. It’s a safer bet than simply taking short positions on the S&P 500; Bloomberg News’s Cameron Crise calculated that speculators have ratcheted up their bets against the index to the most extreme level since 2011.In some ways, the new band of Robinhood traders plays right into the hands of investors like Pars. He manages the $9 billion Calamos Market Neutral Income Fund, which partly employs a strategy known as convertible arbitrage. The trade involves buying and holding the convertible bond while hedging with a short position in the common stock, in theory generating a nearly riskless profit from price discrepancies between the two assets. That’s more likely to happen when there’s added volatility — and especially when the fluctuations seemingly come out of nowhere. “It’s one thing when you have volatility driven by real fundamentals,” Pars says. “When you have more noise volatility, that’s perfect for an arb.”With so much uncertainty surrounding how quickly states can emerge from lockdowns, and just how quickly Americans will travel the way they used to, even modest downside protection, like the 1.25% interest rate on Southwest Airlines’s convertible securities, can be a comfort for investors. That could wind up being a better yield than similar maturity Treasuries over the next five years, given that it’s anyone’s guess whether the Federal Reserve will have raised short-term interest rates from near-zero by then.These are the prudent — albeit less entertaining — calculations that professional investors are paid to think about. There’s still a large divide between the newbie traders who fly in and out of stock and ETF positions on a whim thanks to no-fee trading, and Wall Street denizens who scrutinize market segments mostly out of reach of Robinhood. The former are best thought of like shares of Hertz, surging 682% in the span of days but now sputtering toward zero again.Convertible bonds, by contrast, have delivered average annual returns of 9% or higher over three-, five-, 10- and 15-year horizons. It stands to reason they’ll keep doing so long after the legions of bored traders find a new hobby.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brian Chappatta is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering debt markets.

3 AI Stocks Poised to Gain From Self-Driving Cars
Sometimes, it’s best to get your information straight from the experts. Needham’s 5-star analyst Rajvindra Gill, an expert in the tech sector, has the lowdown on autonomous cars and the companies that will support them. He was part of Needham’s recent 4th Annual Virtual Automotive Tech Conference, and in a report this week he expounds on the highlights of the event.The conference focused on the impact of COVID-19 on the advent of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and featured presentations from and about auto industry reps, semiconductor manufacturers, battery suppliers, software companies – even rideshare companies. Self-driving cars are on the way – the relevant questions are, how soon? and how will the public take to them.Gill sees the innovation hitting the industry in a series of steps. Level 0 is current non-autonomous, non-assistive manual driving technology (or just ‘cars,’ if you prefer). Moving up, Levels 1 and 2 include various forms of non-autonomous driver assistance – adaptive cruise control, lane drift warnings, and limited vehicle control over speed and/or steering. With Level 3, we start to see driver hands-free capability. Level 4 is full vehicle autonomy within geofenced areas, and Level 5 is unrestricted vehicle autonomy. Clearly, current tech is still perfected Level 3 – but higher levels are both conceivable and, likely, inevitable in the near future.And full autonomy brings us to AI. Artificial Intelligence is essential for the technology to work, and the companies that enable it are going to find themselves well positioned for takeoff when ADAS Levels 4 and 5 arrive. Gill points out three such companies, all in the semiconductor chip sector, that he gives Buy ratings, saying that investors can get in now on the ground floor. We’ve used the TipRanks database to pull up the details on them.Microchip Technology (MCHP)We’ll start with Microchip Technology, a major player in the industry. MCHP is ranked 6 globally by sales share, and boasts a $27 billion market cap. The company is heavily invested in the automotive sector, as its chips are widely used in power management apps and wireless connection devices.The company’s tech is heavily integrated into electric vehicles, as well as early innovation in Level 4/5 ASAD. Microchip produces SiC MOSFETs and diodes, which are used in electric powertrains and charging systems, while its connectivity chip enable the centralized computing and GPS location systems that will make autonomous vehicles ‘smart.’Needham's Rajvindra Gill particularly sees Microchip’s moves to micro-PNT as important for autonomous vehicles. This technology will enable cloud-based real-time mapping updates in the ‘urban canyons’ that resist traditional GPS locators. The company is engaged in test projects in three cities, and pending results will move toward the market.Gill rates MCHP a Buy, and gives the stock a $130 price target, indicating confidence in a 19% upside potential for the coming year. (To watch Gill’s track record, click here)Overall, Microchip’s Strong Buy analyst consensus rating is based on 20 reviews, which include no fewer than 17 Buys opposed to just 3 Holds. Shares are trading for $97.45, while the average price target of $113.40 suggests a 16% upside potential. (See Microchip stock analysis on TipRanks)Tower Semiconductor (TSEM)Next up is Tower Semiconductor, a $2.2 billion fabricator in the chip industry. Fab is the vital segment for semiconductors – it is the actual manufacture of the chips. Tower produces a wide range of chips, used in dozens of applications, for some of the biggest names in the industry. The company’s customers include Broadcom, Intel, and Samsung, perennially among the top 5 in market share.From Tower’s perspective, the key about the increasing trend to greater autonomy in motor vehicles – and toward electric vehicles – is the ever-increasing share of electronic componentry in the vehicle systems. Tower sees a major opportunity here, as most automotive circuitry is analog, and Tower is a specialized analog chip foundry. TSEM is already heavily invested in automotive applications, and 10% of the company’s 2019 sales went to the car sector. Specifically, TSEM chips and platforms are essential to the image sensors and LiDAR apps that will allow self-driving cars to ‘see,’ while RF tech is used in connectivity and radar applications. EV vehicles depend on TSEM’s power management technology.In short, Tower has multiple paths toward increased sales and market share, as it will provide the manufacturing capabilities needed to produce the most essential pieces of vehicle AI. With fab facilities in the US, Tower also finds itself in a strong position as markets begin to prioritize US sourcing over Chinese in the wake of the trade war and the coronavirus.Looking at TSEM’s prospects, Gill backs his Buy rating with a $27 price target. His target shows confidence – it implies a 36% one-year upside potential to the stock. (To watch Gill’s track record, click here)TSEM shares have 3 recent analyst reviews, breaking down to 2 Buys and 1 Hold, giving the stock a Moderate Buy consensus rating. Shares are affordably priced, at $21.16, and the $24.33 average price target suggests the stock has room for 14% growth in the next 12 months. (See Tower stock analysis on TipRanks)Nvidia Corporation (NVDA)Last up on today’s list is Nvidia, one of the best-known names in the semiconductor chip sector. Nvidia’s GPU chips are popular among gamers and graphic designers, and the company’s memory chips are widely used in data centers. As a maker of high-end processors, Nvidia’s connection to AI is obvious.About 7% of Nvidia’s business is in the automotive sector, and half of that is geared toward ADAS and autonomous vehicle tech. The company produces the DRIVE platform, a fully scalable architecture capable of functioning in the Level 2 ADAS environment or in Level 4 fully autonomous driving. Gill sees Nvidia’s moves toward L2 ADAS as a multi-year opportunity, as it will take time to reach the volumes anticipated. The DRIVE platform allows cloud-car-cloud data transfer, a model that will encourage machine learning at the higher levels of autonomy. It is important to note, as Gill does, that Nvidia’s competitors in the automotive sector are not shy about conducting simulations using NVDA data center tech.To this end, Gill backs his Buy rating on NVDA with a $400 price target, suggestive of a 14% upside potential. (To watch Gill’s track record, click here)The Street agrees that NVDA is a buying opportunity. The 31 reviews on this stock include 27 Buys, 3 Holds, and a single Sell, making the consensus view a Strong Buy. NVDA is the most expensive stock on today’s list, trading for $351.85. The average price target here, $379.58, suggests an 8% upside from current levels.
