CAG is down -10% in January. Is it a good value?

More than two decades of experience as a student of the markets have taught me that while the market is generally resilient, there is one word that always seems to automatically put the market on edge: change. The COVID-19 pandemic was the start of the most recent example. After a decade of practically uninterrupted growth, […]

KHC is up 30% from its yearly low. Where is its bargain price?

As a conservative-minded, value and fundamental-driven investor, my natural tendency is to shy away from stocks that market experts and popular market media analysts tend to talk to the most about. Another way to describe this mindset uses the word “contrarian,” and it’s a mindset that I think has even more importance the longer market […]

Where is the bargain price for CALM?

There are too many stocks in the marketplace for one person to pay attention to at any given time.

TSN is consolidating around its yearly low. Is it worth its discount price?

Contrarian investors and bargain hunters are cut from a different kind of cloth than growth-focused investors. When everybody is buying, we tend to get more cautious, and when everybody is running for the exits, we start finding more and more attractive opportunities at great prices. 2022 has been a rough year for just about every […]

More than two decades of experience as an investor and market analyst have taught me that while the market is very resilient in the long-term, there is one word that always seems to automatically put the market on edge: change.

How close is KR to useful value?

Growth investing leans heavily on the principle that “a stock tends to follow the direction of its previous trend,” which may just be a nerdy way to say that the longer a stock has been going up, the more likely it is to keep going up. It is also why growth investors shun stocks that […]

Is buying CAG a smart defensive move right now?

After COVID-19 dominated headlines through 2020 and 2021, there is one word that can sum up market concerns this year, and it isn’t pandemic. Inflation is one of those words that tends to stoke fear in the marketplace, because it is usually tied so closely with the ebb and flow of interest rates. The reality […]

Corn Is Out, Soy Is In on U.S. Farms Rocked by Soaring Costs

(Bloomberg) — Two crops dominate U.S. farming: corn and soybeans. The former requires massive amounts of fertilizer. The latter requires very little. Which is why the astronomical surge in fertilizer prices — they’re up some 27% this year and 130% over the past year — is causing farmers to quickly re-calibrate the amount of each […]
