CAG is consolidating around its yearly low – is it a good time to buy?

One of the things that always seems to be a little bit ironic to me about the markets is the way that fear tends to weave a web of intrigue and uncertainty under just about all conditions. That often means that when the market starts to correct, investors, analysts and economists don’t just look for […]

Does MKC’s long-term downward trend make it a good value?

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 also tend to outpace the growth in profitability. […]

GIS is up 9% since early September. Is it a good value?

The Food Products industry in the Consumer Staples sector is an area of the market that tend to get overlooked because, let’s face it, it just isn’t very sexy. Even so, it is one of very few segments of the market that saw consumer-driven improvements in demand during the pandemic. That gave a lot of […]

KHC might be reversing its downward trend – how big a bargain is it?

As a conservative-minded, value and fundamental-driven investor, my natural tendency is to shy away from stocks that market experts and popular market media analysts tend to talk to the most about. That means that my investments generally don’t look very sexy – but I’m far less interested in being sexy than I am in being […]

HRL might have found a downward trend bottom – is it a good bargain?

For more than two years – even before COVID-19 became a global pandemic that collapsed economic and social activity for most of 2020 and that continues to strain health care systems and keep pressure on a variety of economic forces – I’ve been writing about the wisdom in being very selective about the investments you […]

WBA is down -17.5% from its 2021 high. It looks like a good value now

Throughout the past year and a half, stocks in the Health Care sector have drawn a lot of attention from investors and analysts. That includes stocks in the Pharmacy/Drugstore industry; these were names, like Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) and CVS Corporation (CVS) that worked actively in the early stages of the crisis to provide a […]

KR is down -20% this month. Is it a good time to buy?

Have you noticed that market media tends to focus on just a few segments of the market at a time, while at the same time pretty much dismissing all the others? I think at least part of the reason is that investors are always looking for the “next big thing” in the stock market to […]

PG is a dividend king and a great defensive play; is it also a good value?

One of the interesting trends that seems to inevitably come out of periods of economic uncertainty is investor rotation into “defensive” sectors, which usually includes Utilities, Consumer Staples and other pockets of the market that investors tend to think of as safe havens when market uncertainty is high. Another favorite topic analysts seem to like […]
