EW looks like an interesting growth stock – but don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s a bargain

I’m wrapping up my run through the Healthcare Equipment industry by looking at a stock that, like just about the entire rest of the industry, is at the extreme high end of a very long-term upward trend. Part of the reason that this industry has drawn my attention this week is because of the extended […]

Despite being near an all-time high, SYK might still offer an interesting value

This week, I’ve been turning my focus to Healthcare stocks, most particularly to the Healthcare Equipment industry of that sector. The most-established stocks in the industry all seem to be at or very near to all-time high levels – something that I believe is driven by broad fundamental strength among most of these companies as […]

IRBT is down nearly -45% since April – is that an opportunity, or a warning?

The Consumer Discretionary sector has been one of the highest-performing sectors in the market year-to-date; as the broad market has pushed to new all-time highs, so has this sector, increasing about 24% year to date and more than 4% in the last month, as measured by the S&P 500 Consumer Discretionary Sector SPDR ETF (XLY).

LLY is down almost 15% from all-time high. Is it a good time to buy?

In the last week I’ve been focusing my attention in this space on a few of the biggest, most established names in the pharmaceutical space. It’s an industry that I think is becoming more interesting under current market conditions, as some of these names remain significantly off of multi-year, or even all-time highs even as […]

Big value proposition, plus a blockbuster pending merger: is BMY a smart trade right now?

If you’ve followed my highlights in this space, you’ve seen me write on a number of occasions about how my value-focused investing approach tends to make me think in defensive terms under current market conditions. As the major indices are driving to new all-time highs, a lot of growth-oriented folks think that sounds pretty silly; […]

PPC could be an interesting proxy for trade peace – but not without fundamental risk

It seems inevitable right now that no matter what other element may be at play in the market, the conversation right now inevitably turns back to trade and tariffs. The big news in the market yesterday initially was the latest Fed meeting, and its decision to keep interest rates steady for the time being. The […]

How much upside is left for SJM?

Being a contrarian investor can mean a few different things. One is that while most investors shy away from stocks that are trading at historically low levels, a contrarian will usually immediately see an opportunity to look for a terrific bargain. Another is that the simple fact that a stock is going up often means […]

Here’s why MRO could be an incredible bargain

It’s always been interesting to me, up to a point, to note how practically all of the talking heads on popular media seem to focus almost exclusively on growth-driven investing strategies. Not that it’s surprising – after all, they’re generally trying to play to the broadest possible market, which means they need to emphasize strategies […]

LOGI is a nice company – but the stock isn’t a nice price

One of the most basic tenets of value analysis can be summed up by a sound bite offered by the Oracle of Omaha himself, Warren Buffet: “I want to buy a good company at a nice price.” The idea sounds simple enough – but I always find it interesting to see so many different approaches […]
