BKE is about -15% off of its 52-week high – where is its bargain price?

Within the scope of long-term investing, there are two primary methods most investors use: investing for growth, or looking for value. I write a lot in this space about value-oriented investing, because more than two decades of study and hard experience have taught me that it is the investing method that suits me best. It […]

Where is MET’s value price?

There’s a popular saying that you might have heard in a lot of different settings outside of the stock market: “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and smells like a duck…then it’s a duck.” It’s interesting to me that I haven’t heard or seen the saying used when talking about stocks, […]

FOX is down -21.5% from its 2021 high. Is it a buying opportunity?

In the Technology sector, one of the most interesting trends to follow for the past few years has come from streaming media. Services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu were the early entrants into this fast-growing segment that has since seen a number of major broadcasting companies see the light and jump into the fray […]

Where is the value price for GBX?

Long, extended bull markets – either on a broad basis, or even in an individual stock – generally tend to work against value-focused investors. That’s usually because once investors start to pile into stocks at good valuation levels, it doesn’t take long for prices to increase well beyond the point of useful value. I say […]

PSX is down -13% in the last month – is that a good buying set up?

Through most of the pandemic, one of the hardest-hit sectors in the market was the Energy sector. Global restrictions on social gatherings and shelter-in-place orders meant that demand for crude oil products collapsed to practically nothing. The story for 2021 has shifted, of course, as vaccinations led to dropping infections and hospitalizations that have allowed […]

WRK has dropped -16% from a 52-week high – is it time to buy?

The longer you invest in the stock market, the more familiar you become with a lot of the concepts that are used to define and justify the various investing methods that drive them. Years ago, as I began to incorporate technical analysis and shorter-term trading strategies into my system, one of the simplest technical patterns […]

What price should you be willing to pay for AT&T shares?

Through a big portion of 2020, one of the areas that I was able to find some interesting valuations to work with was in the Telecommunications industry. Some of the largest players in the industry do much more than just telecommunications; AT&T Inc. (T) has, of course long been one of the largest telecommunications companies […]

Do CPB’s fundamentals support its bargain status?

I have written quite a bit about how I like to pay attention to stocks in the Food Products industry when market conditions become more uncertain and broad volatility starts to increase. That’s because while the industry itself can hardly be described as disruptive – in fact, I’ve seen analysts throughout the year dismiss the […]

MOS has dropped more than -20% in the last two weeks. Is it a good time to buy?

There is a pretty significant difference in the way different investors perceive a stock in a long-term upward trend. For growth oriented-investors, the longer the upward trend, the more attractive the stock is, simply because the expectation is that the longer, bullish trend will outlast any near-term, bearish sentiment or momentum the stock may see.

HUN is down -20% since early May – does that mean the stock is a good bargain?

One of the sectors that I like to pay attention to as a barometer for the underlying relative health of the economy is the Materials sector, because the companies that comprise it produce or mine many of the raw materials that make up the building blocks used to create most of the finished goods we […]

Are midstream stocks like EPD still a good place to find value in the Energy sector?

Part of taking a smart, value-based approach to investing in the stock market involves keeping track of information on industry and economic trends that are likely to have broad residual impacts on market activity. One of the sectors that I think has a broad carryover effect on multiple other sectors in the economy is Energy, […]
