JNJ is up big-time on COVID-19 vaccine hopes – are they justified?

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 […]

MRK is up almost 21% in the last two weeks. Is it a good buy?

As I’ve studied the market over the years, one of the intriguing contrasts comes in the way different analysis methods take in the “big picture” of the market. That includes the way that fundamental investors and analysts look at the market versus those that prefer to work on strictly technical terms. I like to work […]

Should you buy SYK’s discount?

With the entire world’s focus – financial market or otherwise – turned almost exclusively to coronavirus, social distancing, and how long it is going to take for the world to return to any kind of normalcy in the foreseeable future, it isn’t all that surprising to see market commentary emphasizing health care. I’ve spent enough […]

DHR is overpriced despite its favorable market positioning

As an investor that prefers to focus on value, my preference is to emphasize stocks that are currently trading at significant discounts to their basic valuation metrics. That usually means that most of my attention is directed on stocks that are also trading at or near to yearly or historical lows. That also means that […]

Is ABT’s rapid COVID-19 test approval a good reason to buy the stock?

For the last few weeks, I believe that one of the biggest reasons investors, and the public at large have been so uncertain is simply because the scope of the spread of COVID-19 infection really is. Shelter-in-place orders in some cities and states followed stay-at-home and self-isolating policies that have taken place pretty much everywhere […]

The time looks right to buy TSN

Just a few weeks ago – as concern about COVID-19 was rising, but hadn’t quite reached the panic stage that officially propelled the market into the first bear market in more than a decade – I profiled Tyson Foods Inc. (TSN) as a stock you should be watching. At the time, the stock had declined […]

MMM is down -39.3% in the last year – it’s worth a hard look

Over the weekend, the focus in news media seems to have shifted a bit. It isn’t that discussion and commentary has materially changed – COVID-19, and its accelerating rate of infection in the U.S. is still front and center – but as it relates to the market and the economy, much of the conversation is […]

MDT could be a good-value, socially responsible investment

At the beginning of my career in the financial industry, I was a licensed rep for one of the largest mutual fund and discount brokerage companies in North America. Looking over the mutual funds that we offered, and digging into their respective investment philosophies was something I found to be really fascinating. It wasn’t just […]

Is GOLD another good proxy for defensive positioning with precious metals?

It’s always interesting to watch the way market sentiment and investor attention shifts over time. Just a month ago, investors were talking about how long the economy was going to keep growing, especially as trade concerns receded, the Fed talked about maintaining growth, and consumer sentiment seemed high on the bullish side. What a difference […]
