WBA’s bear market might be a good thing for bargain hunters

VZ is bucking the market. Is it a smart buy?

“Uncertainty” has been a good way to describe market conditions throughout 2022. To compound the difficulty, few analysts and economists expect things to change for the rest of the year, which makes it harder for investors to decide to keep their money working for them. Inflation continues to remain high, despite three interest rate increases […]

Is SIG a good value right now?

Sometimes, answering the question of whether a stock represents a legitimate, attractive value opportunity can be hard to do.

How close is KR to useful value?

Growth investing leans heavily on the principle that “a stock tends to follow the direction of its previous trend,” which may just be a nerdy way to say that the longer a stock has been going up, the more likely it is to keep going up. It is also why growth investors shun stocks that […]

CTSH is down -27% in two months. Is it a good buy yet?

The Technology sector was a bright spot throughout 2020 and 2021, and what I see as a primary reason the economy managed to recover quickly from its initial collapse in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has also led the market into clearly bearish territory in 2022. One of the reasons the sector […]

DOW’s fall from grace could be a big buy

Through the end of April, the Materials sector defied an uncertain market and economic picture in 2022. What a difference a couple of months makes! As measured by the S&P 500 Materials Sector SPDR (XLB), the sector finally surrendered to the broadly bearish conditions of the rest of the market to drop from a peak […]

That includes taking a defensive approach by looking for industries and businesses whose operations aren’t as sensitive to the and ebb and flow of economic growth.

Is HPE’s bear market collapse a buying opportunity?

The Tech sector has enjoyed the lion’s share of attention among all segments of the economy for a number of years. That’s been a good thing during bull markets, but it also means the sector really gets pummeled when uncertainty increases. Since 2020, that attention – driven in no small part by the role of […]

Are homebuilders like OC as radioactive as they seem right now?

One of the classic benchmarks of the economy’s health and strength is the housing market. Stocks of retail companies like Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW) often serve as proxies of to guide the market’s perception of the housing market.  It’s also pretty common to see experts and analysts referring to homebuilders like D.R.
