Is CPB a useful value play?

Yesterday I highlighted General Mills (GIS) as a stock that could offer an interesting value proposition right now. The Consumer Staples sector is starting look like a market segment that smart investors should be paying attention to right now.

Are consumer staples stocks like GIS a smart place to invest right now?

Economic reports this morning, in particular global factory orders and January housing sales and inventory both seem to be reigniting concerns about global and domestic economic activity. The market is also paying attention on the trade front, as negotiations between the U.S. and China by all accounts progress at a slow, but steady pace. The […]

HRB offers a fat dividend and a big discount. Is the trap even bigger?

Consumer Discretionary stocks are interesting in any market conditions because so many of them are subject to cycles that don’t necessarily coincide with normal economic cycles. One of the sub-industries within the sector that I think fit this description is tax services. That is because, moving into the latter stages of winter towards spring, one […]

PAG offers big value – is it a trap?

The Consumer Discretionary sector cuts a wide swath across the economic landscape of the United States.

Is NVDA the chip stock you should love on Valentine’s Day?

I know – it’s cheesy to use Valentine’s Day as a tagline today. And it’s also more than a little odd to use it with a tech stock. Even so, NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) is set to make its latest quarterly earnings report after the market closes today, and the fact is that this is a […]

Does VLO’s fat dividend justify its valuation?

When it comes to identifying stocks that might make useful investments, there are as many strategies as there are people. You can break these strategies into any different number of categories.

Do small cap stocks like MATX make sense right now?

If the market’s recovery since the beginning of the year is legitimate, it becomes more and more tempting to start thinking about expanding our view of the stocks we pay attention to, so we can consider more useful investing opportunities.

Where is the value price for KSS?

Watching the market bounce higher off of late-2018 drop that nearly pushed the major market indices to bear market levels means that it starts to get tempting to think that it’s a good time to start jumping back into stocks and get ready for the rally back to the next set of market highs. The […]
