NWL is up 18% since the beginning of the month – should you buy?

One of the hallmarks of the market’s upward trend this year (even factoring in the market volatility and pull back since late July from the latest all-time high) has been the strength of the U.S. economy.

Is FL’s -36% drop since April an opportunity, or a big risk?

When technical traders see a stock’s price pattern diverging from its industry or sector, the question becomes whether that divergence represents an opportunity, or a risk. The commonly held principle that “a rising tide lifts all ships” usually means that if a broad segment of the market, such as the Consumer Discretionary sector, is performing […]

IRBT is down nearly -45% since April – is that an opportunity, or a warning?

The Consumer Discretionary sector has been one of the highest-performing sectors in the market year-to-date; as the broad market has pushed to new all-time highs, so has this sector, increasing about 24% year to date and more than 4% in the last month, as measured by the S&P 500 Consumer Discretionary Sector SPDR ETF (XLY).

Are CCL’s fundamental strong enough to call it a good value?

At the beginning of May, I took a long look at Carnival Corp (CCL), the largest cruise operator in the world. At the time, the stock was up about 11% for the year, riding the broader market’s rally to that point to a short-term peak at about $55 that appeared to have the stock positioned […]

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 […]
