CALM reinstated its dividend – a positive sign for long-term investors. What about value?

One of the primary fundamental metrics I have learned to use over the years to filter through the tens of thousands of publicly traded companies in the stock market is to look for a history of dividend payout. Dividends are one of the simplest ways for a company’s management to express confidence in its long-term […]

Forget sexy – KR’s value is what you should pay attention to

The “herd mentality” can be a funny thing to think about in societal terms – but it’s a real thing in the stock market. The sheer number of publicly traded stocks on U.S. exchanges alone creates a wave of market data that no single person can handle alone, and that’s a big reason why it […]

TSN has interesting value despite its 48% increase in the last six months

Over the last couple of weeks, the market has been largely range-bound, with an increasing level of volatility that has been making stocks pretty choppy. I think the shift in the uncertainty of which that volatility is a reflection is interesting; the ongoing health crisis remains a part of it, but most of the commentary […]

ADM’s push to new highs is outpacing its fundamental strength

I’ve written quite a bit in this space about my opinion that the Consumer Staples sector – and more specifically, stocks in the Food Products and Food and Staples Retail industries – are smart places to find good values in today’s market. That’s because most of the stocks in these industries are benefitting from the […]

MKC has moved into a long-term downward trend – is it a good buy or a bad risk?

Being a value-oriented investor means that seeing stocks trading at or near all-time highs is actually a demotivating factor; that’s because value-based analysis compares the value of the company’s book of business against the stock’s current price. Since the market tend to inflate stock values, upward trends typically outpace the growth in profitability. That means […]

CAG is a smart defensive value right now

One of the things about value investing that I think makes it hard for most investors to embrace is the fact that value-based principles tend to be counter-intuitive to the mindset that most often gets presented about the market. The first, most basic principle of value investing fits well with rule #1 of investing in […]

GIS has rebounded about 12% in the last month – you should pay attention

This week I’ve turned my focus primarily back on the Food Products industry in the Consumer Staples sector. It’s an area of the market that doesn’t get much buzz from market media types because it isn’t very sexy – but it is one of very few segments of the market that has seen consumer-driven improvements […]

Is HRL a good bargain right now?

Uncertain economic conditions are often a good time to think about stocks that most people tend to overlook because they’re “boring.” These are stocks that also tend to operate in counter-cyclical fashion. They often make up segments of the economy that you and I rely on every day, but that don’t generate the same kind […]

K’s bullish momentum is increasing – but it’s still a GREAT value

Over the last few weeks, the market has started to get choppier, which generally means that it’s harder to determine whether investors are bullish or bearish. That’s a sign of uncertainty about market direction, and I’ve noticed that an increasing number of analysts have started to talk or write about something I’ve believed for some […]
