Is WEN’s upward trend sustainable?

The market has struggled to define a clear direction in the last couple of days. While the Fed did as most economists and analysts predicted, cutting rates by another quarter point this week, the market was less than enthused by Chairman Powell’s comments, which seemed to fail to deliver the kind of clarity about the […]

DRI is up 27.52% year to date – is it too expensive?

An eventful weekend promises to keep the market interesting this week. A series of drone strikes on Saturday knocked out about half of Saudi Arabia’s daily oil production. The culprit has yet to be definitely identified, although the Trump administration didn’t hesistate from pointing fingers at Iran. As of Sunday night, both Brent and West […]

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 […]
