TGT is down -18% in the last month. Where is its value price?

For investors, the holiday season generally marks a time when consumer activity should be healthy and demand for consumer goods will be high. That’s a big reason that the latter part of the year, as the colder months set in across the country that retail stocks often start to see healthy increases in prices. That […]

ADM’s improving fundamentals are good – do they make the stock a good value?

I’ve written quite a bit in this space about my opinion that the Consumer Staples sector – and more specifically, stocks in the Food Products and Food and Staples Retail industries – are smart places to find good values in today’s market. That’s because most of the stocks in these industries are benefitting from the […]

STNG is down big over the last two months – is it a good small-cap bargain?

Different investors react in different ways to the price action that drives a stock from a low to high and back again. For growth investors, for example, a stock at or near historical highs usually means they’ll sit up and start trying to figure out how much further it could go up, while they discard […]

Does SLB’s fundamental strength translate to good value?

Since the beginning of this year, the energy sector has rebounded strongly from the pandemic-driven pressures that had kept prices – particularly in crude oil – depressed throughout 2020. From a November 2020 low point at around $34, for example, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude more than doubled to an early July peak at around […]

Where is MET’s value price?

There’s a popular saying that you might have heard in a lot of different settings outside of the stock market: “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and smells like a duck…then it’s a duck.” It’s interesting to me that I haven’t heard or seen the saying used when talking about stocks, […]

Do CPB’s fundamentals support its bargain status?

I have written quite a bit about how I like to pay attention to stocks in the Food Products industry when market conditions become more uncertain and broad volatility starts to increase. That’s because while the industry itself can hardly be described as disruptive – in fact, I’ve seen analysts throughout the year dismiss the […]

MOS has dropped more than -20% in the last two weeks. Is it a good time to buy?

There is a pretty significant difference in the way different investors perceive a stock in a long-term upward trend. For growth oriented-investors, the longer the upward trend, the more attractive the stock is, simply because the expectation is that the longer, bullish trend will outlast any near-term, bearish sentiment or momentum the stock may see.

HUN is down -20% since early May – does that mean the stock is a good bargain?

One of the sectors that I like to pay attention to as a barometer for the underlying relative health of the economy is the Materials sector, because the companies that comprise it produce or mine many of the raw materials that make up the building blocks used to create most of the finished goods we […]

Do HUN’s fundamentals support its long-term upward trend?

Over the last year, one of the best sectors of the stock market’s rally back to, and even above pre-pandemic levels has been the Materials sector. From last year to a fresh high this week, the sector had increased in value by almost 70%, as measured by the S&P 500 Materials Sector SPDR (XLB). This […]
