RDS.A is a dividend king – is it a good value as well?

Over the last couple of months, as market sentiment has focused heavily on geopolitical news like the U.S.-China trade war, Brexit, and Iran-driven tension in the Middle East, I’ve noticed an increasing number of analysts start talking about a shift in market momentum away from growth-oriented stocks and focusing on more defensively-positioned strategies. That conversation […]

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 […]

Where is PEP’s bargain price?

If the market’s uncertainty, as seen so far in a rough start to October that has seen the S&P 500 drop almost 5% from its last peak in mid-September, is any indication, the time might be right to start thinking seriously about readjusting your investing strategy. This is especially true if you’ve been riding the […]

KO could be an interesting defensive play – but don’t call it a bargain

I think the rough seas the market had to navigate in the month of September, which is traditionally a pretty volatile month for the stock market anyway, could be precursor to continued uncertainty and volatility that could persist throughout the of the year. Barring some kind of major news development, like an unexpected but much-hoped-for […]

Is AGO a useful bet on the Financials sector in this market?

Starting into the fourth quarter of 2019, the market seems to be a bit on edge. It’s been a year since the market saw its last significant correction, dropping almost -20% before finding a bottom on Christmas Eve 2018. Continuing questions about trade, increasing scrutiny around impeachment hearings, and questions about whether the economy is […]

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. For most of the last three months, most of the uncertainty in the market has revolved […]

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 […]

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 […]
