HUN is up 22% from its yearly low, and it still has a nice value proposition

Trying to keep a thumb on the pulse of the market is an inexact science at best. I’ve learned to start by narrowing my focus on a single industry or sector, and then work outward. One of the sectors that I have learned to pay attention to as a starting point to find the temperature […]

KR is up 15% in the last six weeks. What does that mean for its value price?

CTSH is up 15% in November, and it’s still a GREAT buy

The Technology sector was a bright spot throughout 2020 and 2021. It has also led the market lower throughout this year, with a lot of Tech stocks extending their own year-to-date losses well past traditional bear market levels. One of the reasons the sector led the market higher until 2022 is because so much of […]

One of the big recovery stories over the past year or so has come from the Aerospace industry, which includes commercial airlines.

NWL is -50% below its 2022 high. Where is its value price?

Traditional, growth-oriented investing puts most of its emphasis on stocks that have already started moving up.

GLW is up 8% in the last month. Is it still a good value?

Value analysis, or growth-focused, momentum-based trading? Most investors tend to think of these two approaches as being in diametric opposition to each other as incompatible methods.
