Massive spikes in COVID infections late in 2021 from the omicron variant have also given way to big increases in hospitalizations, which means that pressure on our medical system continues to strain healthcare workers and first responders to their […]

RTX is nearing its 52-week high – could it go higher?

One of the big recovery stories over the past year has come from the Aerospace industry, which includes commercial airlines.

One of the big challenges for average investors is sifting through the mountains of information that comes from the market on a daily basis.

DOW could be a smart, value-based buy in the Materials sector

One of the things that market uncertainty does to a lot of investors is to make them more hesitant about taking on new positions. I think that’s a pretty natural reaction, especially when we see the market start to reverse existing trends. Since the beginning of the year, increasing bearish sentiment has finally pushed all […]

The Materials sector is one of the more interesting sectors of the market, because it encompasses a pretty wide range of business types. It’s also an industry that the average consumer probably doesn’t think much about, I think primarily because as consumers we tend to be aware of just the finished goods and products that […]
