WY looks like a great bargain – with strings attached

One of the things that has helped the market perform very well this year, along with the expectation that a trade deal between the u.S. and China will eventually get worked out, is the fact that most economic data measurements in the U.S. have continued to come in pretty healthy. Even the fact that tariffs […]

The S&P 500 is flashing a signal no one wants to talk about – here it is!

When the only subject that anybody in the market wants to talk about at any given time is the latest addition to the trade narrative, it gets pretty easy to miss out on other important information that the market can give you. It’s part of a phenomenon that I like to call “missing the forest […]

MGA is near its 52-week low – that could be a good thing

Over the last month, the entire market seems to have been holding its breath, waiting for some kind of catalyst to pin the market’s next wave of momentum on. Are indications that the weakening global economy is rippling into the health of the U.S. economy correct, or is an increasingly accommodative Federal Reserve going to […]

Is HUN a good value at this level?

Since the beginning of 2018, the Materials sector has been one of the worst-performing sectors in the market. Despite an increase since the end of last year of a little more than 10%, the sector remains down more than 14% since January 2018. Concerns throughout the period about increasing commodity costs have been compounded more […]

Is MAN a good value in the current economy?

Over the last several years, one of the biggest benchmarks the Fed has used to evaluate the need to raise, lower or maintain their interest rate policy has been the employment rate. Every month, the market seems to hold its breath as a new set of unemployment and salary data is made available and everybody […]

Homebuilders like KBH could be a good bargain

One of the classic benchmarks of the economy’s health and strength is the housing market. Stocks of retail companies like Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) often serve as proxies of to guide the market’s perception of the housing market, but it also isn’t uncommon to see experts and analysts referring to homebuilders like D.R.

EXPE has a big discount – is it worth it?

One of the things about stocks in the Consumer Discretionary sector that is interesting is how widely disparate they are. The general perception of most stocks in the sector is that they are highly cyclical, sensitive to inflationary pressures that make them more risky when the economy is in trouble. One industry in the sector […]

U.S. economic outlook should be good for TOL

The market has been nervous this week – whether you want to cite trade war fatigue, global economic fears that could be rippling into U.S. economic metrics, or earnings reports from some of the market’s biggest companies that have disappointed investors. I think it’s true that tariffs between the U.S. and its biggest trading partners […]

Why you shouldn’t buy KHC’s 36.2% discount

Over the last week or so, I’ve written about a few companies in the Food Products industry that I think offer some interesting possibilities under current market conditions – something that is even more true if the market sees an increase in short-term volatility.

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 […]
