Could X be one of the biggest values in the market right now?

This year has seen the broad market rally strongly to begin testing its all-time highs established in September of 2018. That rally has favored just about every sector of the market, including the Materials sector. As measured by the S&P 500 Materials Sector SPDR (XLB), the sector is up a little over 15% year-to-date. Normally, […]

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.

What could a trade deal mean for Metals stocks like KALU?

Over the last week, the market has been muted by concerns about a weakening global economy. That concern is compounded at least by the effects of tariffs between the U.S. and its trading partners over the past year. Steel and aluminum tariffs, for example were among the first imposed, and the target of those tariffs […]

Do improving fundamentals make MCHP a buy?

The semiconductor industry is consistently one of the most interesting segments of the market to pay attention to; it seems to be a benchmark for the rest of the tech sector, and over the past few years has unquestionably lead the market from the standpoint of momentum and performance, to both the upside and downside.

A trade deal might be closer than ever. Is it a good time for MGA?

Market news for the last while has seemed to be almost completely focused on the trade war between the U.S. and China – to the point that investors seem to be getting what some might call “trade fatigue” – which could be a point where even if or when a deal is made, the broad […]

Why HOG could be a dangerous value trap

While the market in the United States was closed for the President’s Day holiday, Asia and Europe were open, and seemingly positive news on the trade front between the United States and China gave those markets reason to bounce higher.

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 […]

Why is CAT underperforming its sector?

As economic data indicates one sector may be more favorably positioned than another, institutions like mutual funds and investment banks will often shift their assets into […]

KLAC is a semiconductor stock for smart value investors

When market uncertainty gives way to fear, stocks generally tend to fall, and while the market in the past week has been trying to rebound from lows in December that tested bear market territory for the major indices, the general tone has really focused more on the negative than anything else.
