Currently on my radar, I've got at a seasonal company (
American Oriental Bioengineering
) and an exponential company (
Cognizant Technology Solutions
). Both are underpriced for their long-term risk/reward opportunities. Both have a stronghold in their hemisphere and are looking to begin conquering the other side of the world. The grass always was greener across the street.
AOB is a leading provider of Chinese pharmaceutical products and currently does most of its business in China but is looking to go abroad. In a way, its strategy is like a game of Risk: It's been buying out its competitors and "securing its home country," and now it's looking to take over the entire board.
Cognizant is a leading provider in global custom IT solutions, sourcing mostly out of India and providing for the more established economies. Analysts don't forecast much growth for this company, mostly due to higher operating costs. I think that analysts are being overcautious.
