Prescott Group Capital Management has reported adding some 38 new stocks to its portfolio and disposing of 32 other holdings. Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:NUS), a global company engaged in the development and distribution of anti-aging personal care products and nutritional supplements, represents the fund’s most significant new holding – a stake of 35,000 shares worth $2.90 million. Last year, the company delivered earnings per share of $5.24, slightly above market expectations. In January 2014, the stock sank around 36.00%, after an investigation by Chinese authorities into its business practices in the country. The stock slowly recovering, analysts predict a mean target price of $105.00, compared to the current price of around $88.90, and strongly recommend that investors buy.

Phil Frohlich initiated a new stake in AerCap Holdings N.V. (NYSE:AER), a global company which engages in the acquisition and subsequent leasing of aviation assets, and which provides aircraft management services. The stake amounts to 56,700 million shares, with a total value of $2.40 million. AerCap’s stock price nearly tripled in the past 12 months to a current price of around $43.70 apiece – 21.00 times the company’s earnings per share.

The fund also revealed a new position of 20,000 shares worth $2.12 million in Signet Jewelers Ltd. (NYSE:SIG) - a specialty retail jeweler. Signet trades at a P/E ratio of 22.75, compared to the industry average of 17.00. Signet Jewelers reported profits of $360.00 million or $4.37 per share for 2013 and $368.00 million or $4.59 per share in 2014. Expecting the retail jeweler to generate $5.60 per share in 2015, analysts provide an average recommendation of ‘Overweight’ for its stock.

Old Dominion Freight Line (NASDAQ:ODFLis another recently new stock in Prescott Group Capital Management’s equity portfolio. The fund holds 30,700 shares in the company, the position valued at $1.74 million. Old Dominion is a motor carrier providing regional, inter-regional, and national less-than-truckload service and logistics services. The company’s stock price has been consistently rising in the past 5 years, currently trading at $60.73. Generating earnings of $2.39 per share in 2013, Old Dominion is expected to produce $2.82 per share this year. Two other funds holding Old Dominion Freight Line (NASDAQ:ODFL)’s shares are Ross Margolies‘ Stelliam Investment Management and John Brennan‘s Sirios Capital Management. The former owns 722,500 shares of the company, while the latter – almost 719,000.

Finally, computer software company Tableau Software Inc (NYSE:DATA) is also among the fund’s new investments, with a position of 20,000 shares, which amass a value of $1.52 million. As an emerging Tech stock, Tableau generated significant profits only last year – $0.31 per share, compared to previous years’ average (2010-2012) of $0.016 per share. Analysts strongly suggest that investors buy the company’s stock, setting a target price of $95.40 per share, a number which is considerably higher than the current price of $58.46.
