WY looks like a great bargain – with strings attached

One of the things that has helped the market perform very well this year, along with the expectation that a trade deal between the u.S. and China will eventually get worked out, is the fact that most economic data measurements in the U.S. have continued to come in pretty healthy. Even the fact that tariffs […]

Is MDLZ overvalued, or is there still room to run?

In 2019, one of the most interesting sectors in the entire market is the Consumer Staples sector. I tend to think of stocks in this sector, which include Food, Personal Care, and big-box retailers and grocers, as being defensive in nature, useful as a way to keep your money working for you in uncertain market […]

Should ADM be part of a smart defensive strategy?

It really seems like the market is going to take any queues for the foreseeable future from the U.S.-China trade front. With both sides seemingly digging in on hard-line positions that they don’t want to be moved off of, it looks like uncertainty is going to continue to rule the markets as we move into […]

MU is a perfect example of the problems a longer trade war could create for U.S. stocks

It’s interesting to see the different reactions people have to news. Not surprisingly, a lot of it has to do with the kind of news we pay attention to. If you pay more attention to politics, then you’re likely to be most passionate about current political events and issues. If you’re an active investor, then […]

How much upside does H offer in the long term?

Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a forced break from the prevailing news of the day and turn your focus to other things. Ih the stock market right now, all anybody seems to want to talk about is the trade war and the latest chapter in an ongoing debate that doesn’t appear ready to […]

Is this CAKE really good enough to eat – or buy?

After a few days of doing like the rest of the market and paying a lot of attention to tariff news and trade war rhetoric, it felt like today might be a good time to shift the focus – at least a little bit – away from some of those issues and look for something […]

Do trade tensions make AMAT a smart buy?

The market rallied strongly yesterday; I guess that shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise, since investors are apparently so fearful of the prospect of what an extended escalation of the trade war that the entire market seems to be hanging on every tweet or sound bite that comes from the White House or […]

What do increased tariffs mean for stocks like HPE?

Friday at 12:00 a.m., the Trump administration followed through on its threat to increase tariffs against China from 10% to 25%. Experts and pundits, including corporate heads, politicians, and economists seem united in the opinion that this latest phase of the trade war will be felt more acutely on the consumer level. The consensus seems […]

Has BBBY turned a corner?

At the beginning of 2018, I ran a complete analysis of Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), a stock that I’ve followed for some time, and used in the past for some of my own value-oriented investments. The stock has been in an extended, long-term downward trend dating back to the first quarter of 2015. That […]

CTXS is near to 52-week lows – that doesn’t make the stock a good buy

One of the elements that I’ve come to rely on as a value investor to identify good bargains in the stock market is to look for fundamentally strong stocks that are trading at the lower end of their historical ranges. That’s a technical addition to the value-oriented investing system I’ve built over years of study […]
