Have you watched The Mandalorian? If if you haven’t, you probably still know about Baby Yoda, right? I believe we have only seen the beginning of Disney’s efforts to monetize Baby Yoda from their streaming series on Disney+ (Disney Plus) called The Mandalorian. Many would argue that Baby Yoda is the cutest and most marketable Star Wars character in history. Disney held off on merchandising Baby Yoda per the request of The Mandalorian’s development team in order to keep the reveal in the Mandalorian pilot a secret; however, Baby Yoda, also known as “The Child” was so beloved that he became a widespread meme instantly after the show’s launch, before many people had opportunity to watch. I have a stock idea for 2020 that could turn you a nice profit. In fact, I’ll cover 3 stocks that could benefit from Baby Yoda hysteria. I’ll focus primarily on Build-A-Bear, stock ticker #BBW, and how you can potentially cash in, but I’ll also mention two other companies. This will be a fun video, so let’s get started. Build-A-Bear Workshop (BBW) is one of several retail operators that have struggled as mall traffic continues to decline. Build a Bear offers an in-person experience to pick out a plush stuffed toys and accessories, and they have relied on mall traffic for too long. They are late to the party, but they are now pushing ecommerce and third party retail locations…and these strategies seem to be working for the company. There’s also lots of room to grow. The home run ball is the additional of Baby Yoda. This stock was moving up without Baby Yoda, and with this addition, I see this is as a solid swing trade for 2020. Build a Bear just raised guidance for the full fiscal year, and announced a new plush coming this year that has been turned into many news stories around the country. That new plush is "The Child" or "Baby Yoda" as he is commonly referred to from the Disney Plus series "The Mandalorian". Baby Yoda has been extremely popular since the show aired and due to the creative team wanting him to be a surprise on the show, won't see toys released until 2020. During the recent 2019 holiday season, Baby Yoda became one of the hottest selling toys; however, products wouldn’t ship for months. On Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), a talking Baby Yoda from Hasbro (HAS) and a plush from Mattel (MAT) both sold out almost immediately with release dates in April and May of 2020. Disney's (NYSE: DIS) website allows customers to preorder a Baby Yoda plush for $24.99 with an estimated ship date of April 20th. There is however a limit of one per customer. BBW’s third quarter revenue was $70.1 million, which was an increase of only 2.5%. Retail gross margins improved to 39.5%. The ICR presentation demonstrated several plans of how Build a Bear will grow in the future. The following are the keys to investing in #BBW shares. Here are some key highlights: * Ecommerce and digital commerce growth * Expanded retail diversification and accessibility through expansion in third party retail * Revenue diversification through outbound licensing and entertainment Build-A-Bear has opened stores through partners like Great Wolf Lodge, Landry's Restaurants, and Carnival Cruise Lines to expand sales. They are also testing third party stores on three fronts: at military bases, inside Chuck E Cheese locations, and inside Marriott Resorts. Another idea they have is to add additional stores inside of Walmart locations, which they have been doing inside select locations already. Next I dig into financial and technical chart analysis.

Teladoc Health, Inc., formerly referred to as Teladoc, Inc. and Teladoc Medical Services, is a multinational telemedicine and virtual healthcare company based in the United States. Primary services include telehealth, medical opinions, AI and analytics, and licensable platform services. Without question, technology has, and will continue to, change the world and how things are done. Technology, which certainly has its pros and cons, has improved our lives in many aspects over the past couple of decades. I think that trend not only continues, but also accelerates. How can we as investors profit from secular growth trends? We have covered several growth trends in previous videos: 5g, Cloud, AI, Autonomous driving, FinTech, and cannabis. You can view these videos on the channel. But what about healthcare? What are some top stocks in the healthcare sector that have innovative and disruptive technologies? Today, I’ll cover one potential stock for you to investigate. That stock is Teladoc Health, stock ticker TDOC, which is the largest global supplier of virtual healthcare services, linking patients with doctors and other medical experts over the internet, which is a rapidly growing, low-cost, and convenient method of delivering healthcare. We are seeing an explosion in demand not just in the US, but also globally. Let’s dive into Teladoc and see if it’s a good investment. I’ll cover not only the bull case, but also potential risks. I’ll simply discuss the unbiased facts that I’ve uncovered through my homework, and you can make your own decision. I’m excited to present this information to you, so let’s get started! The first and obvious reason to like the company is due to their current leadership in a rapidly expanding market. If you’ve invested in growth stocks before, you know that the most important thing to look for is a company with a dominate position in a market with explosive growth. It seems so simple, yet so many people don’t include it in their analysis. Does the company have leadership? Teladoc currently does. A stock with this growth quality will, of course, be more expensive in terms of valuation, especially if you are late to the party. It’s much more difficult to use fundamental analysis on stocks like this. Many people will use intrinsic value when analyzing growth stocks like teladoc. So, let’s do that....but first, what is intrinsic value? In finance, intrinsic value refers to the value of a company, stock, currency or product determined through fundamental analysis without reference to its market value. ... It is ordinarily calculated by summing the discounted future income generated by the asset to obtain the present value. I took a look at the stock using a 2-stage growth model, which simply means taking in account two stages of a company’s growth. In the initial period, the company may have a higher growth rate...and in the second stage..its usually assumed to have a more stable growth rate. I won’t bore you with all of the details and numbers, but from a high level, when I look at Teladoc’s: Present Value of 10-year Cash Flow, the Terminal Value, and the Present Value of Terminal Value, the stock seems in range to slightly expensive. Keep in mind this type of analysis is extremely volatile, and I never use this calculation by itself to invest in a company. It’s simply one metric that helps with a final decision. Okay, so now let’s dig into some additional data...first....let’s look at their growth statistics. The global health market is projected to expand at an approximate rate of 25% over the next several years, reaching a total market of $267 billion by 2026. $267 billion dollars in 6 years. This is an enormous number, and if accurate, an enormous opportunity for a company like Teladoc, who is currently the global leader in the space. This demand is fueled by an aging population, societal demand (think Amazon and the convenience of having things come to you, Teladoc is the Amazon of healthcare), also consumer demand for lower healthcare costs, as well as improved rural access. In the third quarter 2019, Teladoc’s revenue grew 24% to $138 million on an increase of 45% in total visits. On the earnings call, the company’s CEO, Jason Gorevic said he is confident in top line growth of 20% to 30% for the foreseeable future. Since the close of Jul. 2, 2015, shares have gained over 200%. In the last year, the company has outperformed, and their share price has increased over 55%. So this stock has made a big run, but let’s dig deeper and see if it’s not too late.
