NTGR: bargain basement value, or just a cheap stock?

There are a lot of factors that a smart investor should consider when thinking about using a stock for a long-term investing opportunity.

Trade tensions, which have persisted for well over a year, have worked to amp up market tension at different periods throughout the year.
