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 […]

CSX is down -11% since the beginning of the year – is it a good time to buy?

It’s been interesting in the last week, with the inauguration of a new President to see how the market has shifted its focus. Considering the often mixed messaging that came from the Trump administration, it isn’t too surprising to think that a President that is expected to act more like – well, more like a […]

How overvalued is GRMN?

Surveying the stock market right now is an interesting mix of contradictions. It seems that with very few exceptions, every industry in almost every sector has had to absorb some kind of impact from the global pandemic that that plagued the world through 2020, and remains an ongoing concern even as the first practical vaccines […]

Is SJM’s consolidation pattern a buying opportunity?

Being a contrarian investor can mean a few different things. To some, contrarian investing is correlated with value investing, and I think that makes sense in a lot of ways. For one thing, being a contrarian means recognizing that all price trends – up or down – are finite in length and duration. That means […]

LEN has tripled in price since March – but it might not be done yet

Pandemic conditions have put a lot of pressure on sectors across the economy, but at the same time there have been pockets of the economy that have performed remarkably well. Most of the attention throughout the year has naturally been focused on sectors tied to the health crisis, or to the shift to work-from-home models.  […]

AMAT is going parabolic – can it keep going?

One of the really remarkable stories about 2020 in the stock market is the way that the Tech sector has led the way after a pandemic-induced drop to bear market levels back to new highs. The biggest winner over the last eight months has been the Tech sector, where a number of stocks not only […]

CLX products are like currency in a pandemic world – is the stock a good value as well?

Throughout the year, I’ve been fascinated to watch market and consumer trend shift and adjust to pandemic-induced conditions. Not all of those shifts have been pleasant, even if they were necessary; as an analyst, though it is important to understand where those changes fit into the current market and economic landscape. It is also useful […]

PG is a dividend king and a great defensive play, but that isn’t the same as good value

One of the interesting threads that comes out of periods of market volatility is a wave of investor rotation into “defensive” sectors, which usually includes Utilities, Consumer Staples and other pockets of the market that investors tend to think of as safe havens when market uncertainty is high. Another favorite topic analysts seem to like […]

Is MCK a bargain, or a risk?

This week, I’ve turned my attention back to the Pharmacy industry – but specifically focusing on the distributors that supply the biggest pharmacies in the U.S. Understanding how some of those relationships work for a company you may have been following for a while can help identify new opportunities to think about. Over the last […]

What kind of bargain opportunity does CAH offer?

One of the reasons I think the economy, and the financial markets are such a fascinating thing to watch is because of the way companies in different aspects of business relate to each other. It’s one thing to look at a retail store, for example and think about basic fundamental elements like sales, earnings, and […]
