GT – great bargain, or just a cheap stock?

If you’ve been reading my daily posts for very long at all, you should be pretty used to seeing me evaluate companies throughout the market on the basis of both their fundamental strength as well as their value proposition. That’s because in the search for good investing opportunities, I’ve learned to rely on a few […]

PLT probably isn’t a good small-cap buy right now

A couple of decades ago, I was a young man, just getting my start in the stock market and anxious to learn everything I could. One of the many books I was referred to, and was informed should be required reading for anybody just getting started, was One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch. […]

APA shows why a rising tide may not always lift all ships

If you spend a couple of minutes talking to anybody that has invested in the stock market for very long, you’ll almost inevitably hear them throw out a few of their favorite idioms. That’s because while sometimes they seem simplistic, obvious, or perhaps even a little silly, the truth is that many of them are […]

What could a trade deal mean for Metals stocks like KALU?

Over the last week, the market has been muted by concerns about a weakening global economy. That concern is compounded at least by the effects of tariffs between the U.S. and its trading partners over the past year. Steel and aluminum tariffs, for example were among the first imposed, and the target of those tariffs […]

NTGR is a case in point where fundamentals render value meaningless

As a value-oriented investor that uses fundamental analysis to screen the market for attractive opportunities, I’ve had to learn over the years how to differentiate between a stock that looks like a good bargain versus those that really are. The irony of that statement is that just as no stock investment is ever guaranteed, the […]

Is HUN a good value at this level?

Since the beginning of 2018, the Materials sector has been one of the worst-performing sectors in the market. Despite an increase since the end of last year of a little more than 10%, the sector remains down more than 14% since January 2018. Concerns throughout the period about increasing commodity costs have been compounded more […]

Is BA as radioactive as the news wants you to believe?

Throughout this week, one of the biggest news stories, without question, has been the fatal crash of a Boeing 737 MAX jet flown by Ethiopian Air shortly after takeoff on March 10. The crash took the lives of all 157 that were onboard the plane, and it was the second such crash in five months […]

Why you shouldn’t buy KHC’s 36.2% discount

Over the last week or so, I’ve written about a few companies in the Food Products industry that I think offer some interesting possibilities under current market conditions – something that is even more true if the market sees an increase in short-term volatility. Investors are putting a lot of focus on geopolitics right now, […]

Want to be defensive? K might not be a smart risk to take

Economic reports this week set the market on edge this week, although optimism related to trade gave investors reasons to push the market higher late in the week. One of the risks that I’ve seen some experts and economists start talking about more lately is the possibility that if and when a trade deal with […]

Why HOG could be a dangerous value trap

While the market in the United States was closed for the President’s Day holiday, Asia and Europe were open, and seemingly positive news on the trade front between the United States and China gave those markets reason to bounce higher. Investors have been anxious over the last couple of weeks to price the expectation of […]
