Do great fundamentals make HRL a good buy at its current price?

While the weekend’s news of a partial trade deal between the U.S. and China seems to have given the market some hope that better things are ahead on the trade front, I think there are still some risks. Monday’s market action gave a pretty good view of that reality as investors tried to parse through […]

Is CALM a good value, or just cheap?

Over the last couple of days, I’ve focused my attention in this space on stocks in the Beverages industry of the Consumer Staples sector as defensive-oriented stocks that smart investors might want to think about working with under current market conditions. Volatility has been the word of the past month or so, with the market […]

TSN might be too expensive to be a good defensive investment

When markets become volatile, it usually means that investors are becoming increasingly uncertain and nervous. Uncertainty can come from all kinds of different things – concerns about inflation, wage growth, central bank monetary policy, earnings trends, and geopolitical events.

Are K’s fundamentals improving enough to make the stock worth your time?

Another week, another wave of trade-centered speculation. Earlier this week, the market decided to rally after President Trump said that a trade deal could happen “sooner than you think.” Yesterday, investor’s mood seemed to sour a bit as a report suggested that the U.S. is unlikely to extend a waiver allowing American companies to do […]

ENR’s discount is impressive – what about its fundamentals?

If you’ve followed my posts in this blog for very long, you know that my preference when considering a stock as a new investing opportunity is to look at it from a combination of fundamental strength as well as value. It isn’t enough to simply find a company with a strong book of business and […]

GIS is up 41% year to date – has the value opportunity passed by?

One of the challenges my approach to value investing gives me is how to work with stocks that have been performing strongly under current market conditions. My method tends to favor stocks trading at the lower end of its historical trading ranges, and so seeing a stock already in a long, sustained upward trend usually […]

JNJ is down -12% from its peak – that might be enough to make the stock a bargain

Years ago, as I began my career as an investor, I read a book by Peter Lynch. Mr. Lynch had made his name, and his fortune, as the manager of Fidelity’s flagship Magellan fund in the late /70’s and ’80’s, and his incredible performance was one of the big reasons Magellan, at the time, was […]

PG is a dividend king – but that doesn’t mean you should buy it now

In the last week, one of the interesting threads that I’ve seen come out of the market’s latest run of volatility is a wave of 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 […]
