Can ROKU go higher?

While the market has found itself on increasing shaky ground throughout the month of May, one stock in particular seems to have stood out above the entire market. Roku, Inc. (ROKU) has nearly quadrupled in value from its bottom at the end of December, running from about $26 per share to its Friday close at […]

Is this CAKE really good enough to eat – or buy?

After a few days of doing like the rest of the market and paying a lot of attention to tariff news and trade war rhetoric, it felt like today might be a good time to shift the focus – at least a little bit – away from some of those issues and look for something […]

Has BBBY turned a corner?

At the beginning of 2018, I ran a complete analysis of Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), a stock that I’ve followed for some time, and used in the past for some of my own value-oriented investments. The stock has been in an extended, long-term downward trend dating back to the first quarter of 2015. That […]

SKX has retraced 14% of its year-to-date rally. Is that a bullish set up?

I started out this week looking for stocks that are currently bucking the overall market’s bullish tone and trend right now. That’s a deliberately contrarian viewpoint that works off of the simple idea that stocks that are trading at or near low extremes offer a better bargain proposition than those that are surging to new […]

BKE could be an interesting combination of value and growth

Within the scope of long-term investing, there are two primary methods most of us use: investing for growth, or looking for value. I write a lot in this space about value-oriented investing, because more than two decades of study and hard experience have taught me that it is the investing method that suits me best. […]

WDFC: What’s in a name?

In investing, there’s a natural tendency to be drawn to familiar names, an emotional comfort zone that comes from thinking about putting your hard-earned dollars into a company to which you feel you have a connection. It’s one of the reason well-known fundamental investors like Peter Lynch are known for suggesting idioms like “invest in […]

A trade deal might be closer than ever. Is it a good time for MGA?

Market news for the last while has seemed to be almost completely focused on the trade war between the U.S. and China – to the point that investors seem to be getting what some might call “trade fatigue” – which could be a point where even if or when a deal is made, the broad […]

Is PII’s 32% discount an opportunity – or a trap?

As the market continues to recover from its lows in late December, I’m seeing more and more reports and opinions that while economic growth in the United States may begin to slow (and based on some measurements, that might already be starting to happen), it isn’t expected to actually reverse and begin contracting for as […]

HRB offers a fat dividend and a big discount. Is the trap even bigger?

Consumer Discretionary stocks are interesting in any market conditions because so many of them are subject to cycles that don’t necessarily coincide with normal economic cycles. One of the sub-industries within the sector that I think fit this description is tax services. That is because, moving into the latter stages of winter towards spring, one […]

50% MHK discount: huge value, or value trap?

Even with a nice rally in the market to start the new year, there are a lot of stocks that remain at or near 52-week, or even historic lows. If you like looking for value as I do, that’s actually a pretty nice problem to have; it means that there are plenty of options to […]
