The Financial sector is leading the latest market surge – should you buy stocks like USB?

One of the early threads of this new year, aside from commentary and opinion about the political landscape, rising COVID-19 infections (not to mention a new strain that appears to be more infectious than the first) is the way the Financial sector has been among the sectors that have led the market higher. Two weeks […]

Food stocks are out of favor – and that’s an opportunity for value investors

Throughout the course of the last couple of years I’ve found the Consumer Staples sector, and specifically the Food Products industry a good place to find useful investing opportunities. In 2018 and 2019, a lot of that was being driven by international trade concerns that increased uncertainty in the marketplace. 2020 made the industry a […]

IP has nearly doubled in price during the pandemic – but it might not be done

No matter what current market conditions are at any given time, the point of value-oriented investing is to find stocks that offer attractive long-term upside. For my approach, that means using a combination of valuation, fundamental strength, and technical analysis to filter through the thousands of stocks that are available. The market’s rally to fresh […]

PAA is a big bargain in the Oil & Gas Transportation industry – is the timing right?

One of the sectors that has seen an impressive rally over the last couple of months is the Energy sector. As measured by the U.S. Energy iShares ETF (IYE), the sector has increased from a trend low point at the end of October by about 54%. Much of that increase has been driven by a […]

STX is retracing from its 2020 high – is it a good time to buy?

As a value-focused investor with more than a bit of a contrarian bent, I tend to get nervous when stocks keep making one new high after another, and I like it when I see stocks trading at or near historical lows. That’s pretty different than the mindset of most investors that focus on growth first, […]

GIS is down -11% from its 2020 peak – is it a smart buy in 2021?

If you think strictly about price performance and what the price of a stock is now relative to where it was in the past – in particular, relative to where it was on a pre-pandemic basis – it’s pretty easy to understand why so much attention has been paid to Tech stocks that make remote […]

Do ACCO’s fundamentals and value proposition agree with current economic conditions?

One of the challenges that investors have had to deal with throughout the past year is the market’s divergence from economic facts on the ground. From the early stages of the pandemic, analysts could not agree whether the expected, eventual recovery from both a health and economic-driven perspective would manifest as by a move back […]

BMY’s consolidation pattern could be a good set up for technical traders and value investors alike

With thousands of publicly available stocks to work with, the question most investors face when looking for ways to keep their money working for them isn’t really about which stocks they might be able to use. I’ve spent more than two decades watching the markets and studying different investing and trading styles and methods. What […]

How overvalued is GRMN?

Surveying the stock market right now is an interesting mix of contradictions. It seems that with very few exceptions, every industry in almost every sector has had to absorb some kind of impact from the global pandemic that that plagued the world through 2020, and remains an ongoing concern even as the first practical vaccines […]

Is SJM’s consolidation pattern a buying opportunity?

Being a contrarian investor can mean a few different things. To some, contrarian investing is correlated with value investing, and I think that makes sense in a lot of ways. For one thing, being a contrarian means recognizing that all price trends – up or down – are finite in length and duration. That means […]

EPD might be one of the smartest values in the Energy sector for 2021

Over the years, I’ve learned to pay attention to the Energy sector as a way to measure a number of different aspects of the global economy. One of the those elements that is very interesting is the difference between U.S. oil production versus the rest of the world. The financial markets use futures contracts on […]
