The Call ‘Week In Review’: Playboy, Chipotle & UnitedHealth Group (4/16/21)

04/16/21 02:05PM EDT

We created “The Call” to simulate the decision-making process of a world-class hedge fund.

  • How do the sharpest investors analyze their favorite long and short ideas?
  • What’s the debate like between analyst and portfolio manager?

In keeping with that theme, below are video highlights from this week’s edition of “The Call” we wanted to call to your attention. We’ve also transcribed brief excerpts to speed up your idea generation process.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.

RETAIL ANALYST BRIAN MCGOUGH: PLAYBOY (PBLY)

McGough: "We made a call on this name over the weekend and we put out a note that is a 10-bagger over a tail duration. So it's a very big call."

Consumables ANALYST Howard Penney: chipotle (CMG) & Burgerfi (BFI)

Penney: "What's happening at Chipotle is that the rants are growing louder and louder, and it's won over labor which is not surprising. But what's making it worse is the digital ordering overwhelming the stores."

Healthcare ANALYST Tom Tobin: UnitedHealth Group (UNH)

Tobin: "UnitedHealth Group ($UNH) numbers confirm some caution on 1Q21 as a catalyst for the #reopening. The company beat on the top line by over $1 billion and on the bottom line by almost $1/share."
