FL has been stabilizing – this could be a good time to buy a good company at a nice price

Among the interesting trends I have been watching for most of the last two years, and that have emerged at least in part as a practical response to the global health crisis we continue to struggle with has been a shift in consumer focus towards health, wellness and fitness. Given the constant messaging about personal […]

CAG is consolidating around its yearly low – is it a good time to buy?

One of the things that always seems to be a little bit ironic to me about the markets is the way that fear tends to weave a web of intrigue and uncertainty under just about all conditions. That often means that when the market starts to correct, investors, analysts and economists don’t just look for […]

Should you buy CPB’s big discount?

As we move into the last few months of the year, the sad and simple truth is that, no matter how much we might want to be able stop including COVID-19 and its impact on every aspect of life in our daily discussions, the health crisis hasn’t gone away, but instead is showing more persistence […]

MRO is picking up a lot of bullish momentum – is it time to buy?

Having a contrarian temperament generally means doing the opposite of what most people would do. It’s a mindset that I’ve found very useful as an investor, because while most people tend to flock to stocks that are at or near all-time highs, I’m able to find excellent long-term opportunities at much lower, bargain-level prices. It’s […]

Does MKC’s long-term downward trend make it a good value?

Being a value-oriented investor means that seeing stocks trading at or near all-time highs is actually a demotivating factor; that’s because value-based analysis compares the value of the company’s book of business against the stock’s current price. Since the market tend to inflate stock values, upward trends also tend to outpace the growth in profitability. […]

GIS is up 9% since early September. Is it a good value?

The Food Products industry in the Consumer Staples sector is an area of the market that tend to get overlooked because, let’s face it, it just isn’t very sexy. Even so, it is one of very few segments of the market that saw consumer-driven improvements in demand during the pandemic. That gave a lot of […]

Midstream stocks like EPD are a good way to take advantage of Energy sector momentum

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, […]

HPE is up 14% in the last three weeks – is it time to buy?

The Tech sector has enjoyed a lion’s share of attention among all segments of the economy for a number of years. Throughout the pandemic, that attention only seemed both intensified and justified, as technology companies provided the tools that allowed much of corporate America to keep things going by shifting their workforces to remote working […]

KHC might be reversing its downward trend – how big a bargain is it?

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. That means that my investments generally don’t look very sexy – but I’m far less interested in being sexy than I am in being […]

HRL might have found a downward trend bottom – is it a good bargain?

For more than two years – even before COVID-19 became a global pandemic that collapsed economic and social activity for most of 2020 and that continues to strain health care systems and keep pressure on a variety of economic forces – I’ve been writing about the wisdom in being very selective about the investments you […]

ROST is down -20% since May – does that mean you should buy now?

One of the most interesting things to me about the stock market is that there really are as many different ways to invest your money as the human brain can imagine. That’s one of the reasons that there are so many different kinds of mutual fund and ETF choices geared for the average investor. One […]
