The last time we saw today's setup, one group of stocks more than doubled in four years and left U.S. stocks in the dust… It has nothing to do with China. And it might surprise you… European stocks are now dirt-cheap compared with their U.S. counterparts. Based on history, that means we could see an incredible scenario… European stocks could significantly....More>>>
Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (NYSE:TGP) is a Master Limited Partnership (MLP) which operates LNG tankers. The stock recently closed around $14.00 and pays a dividend of 56 cents per year for a yield of 4.0%. This would not ordinarily put it on the radar screen for investors seeking out high yield equities. But conservatively calculated, TGP is now trading at roughly 4 times current “distributable....More>>>
Bad trading updates are now becoming part-and-parcel of Britain’s support services sector.
And Capita Group proved the rule once again, a disappointing set of full-year financials sending the stock 9% lower in Thursday business. The outsourcer is now dealing at its cheapest since June 2006.
Capita saw pre-tax profit rattle 33% lower in 2016, to £475.3m, it advised today....More>>>
Without classifying stocks as “cheap” or “expensive,” and rather than looking at a stock’s face value, we can put emphasis on earnings estimate revisions to find stocks under $10 that will, hopefully, be winners for investors.
That being said, low-priced stocks can be attractive to smaller investors that can’t necessarily....More>>>
An upstart airline just snubbed the owner of British Airways.
Norwegian Air Shuttle said Friday that it has rejected two takeover offers from British Airways parent IAG (BABWF) because they undervalued the airline and its prospects.
IAG, which also owns Iberia and Aer Lingus, confirmed that it had approached Norwegian. But the industry giant said that talks had “ended without....More>>>
If you're like most investors, you probably worry too much about short-term share-price movements. To make several times your money in the stock market, you must learn to find great businesses… buy them at cheap prices… and above all, hold on to them long enough. Multibaggers take time. If you can't be patient, you can't get rich in stocks. Period. No ifs,....More>>>
The stock market rally following Donald Trump’s surprise White House win has made an already expensive U.S. stock market even more so, raising questions about whether Wall Street is pricing in a too-rosy financial scenario.
Wall Street had been warning that stocks were getting rich relative to corporate profits and that was before the presidential election. Since then, the Standard....More>>>
Buying stocks that are cheap and out of favor to capture extra return when they eventually recovera cornerstone of value investinghas worked for decades, but may no longer be a sound strategy due to shifts in how markets operate, according to Jeremy Grantham, founder of asset manager GMO.

Stocks suffered a rare bout of weakness on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffering a loss greater than 0.6% for the first time in nearly 100 days. While the parabolic uptrend channel remains intact, for now, fear is definitely in the air as the CBOE Volatility Index decouples from equity prices and launches higher, up more than 23% today to close at levels not seen since last August.

The current market sell-off may offer good buying opportunities for selected companies. In my point of view, one such company that could be added in the portfolio is Ichor Holdings (ICHR). The company operates within the semiconductor industry that is set to benefit from positive secular trends. And despite that, many companies trade at very low valuations on investor concern of cyclicality.
While other Seeking Alpha commentators are more bearish on the announcement, I find Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) buyback authorization to be a very bullish signal from the Board of Directors that Facebook’s shares are too cheap to ignore. I think shares are without question a buy at current levels in light of their recent swoon.
From a pure magnitude point of view, I certainly agree....More>>>
I’ve been a skeptic about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) for some time. While Apple stock looks cheap, I’ve argued that it should look cheap. Growth concerns across the board mean that AAPL earnings — and, thus, AAPL stock — shouldn’t necessarily get a high valuation.
But I admit that Apple earnings on Tuesday were quite impressive — and answered a number....More>>>
After years of falling sales and losses, Sears Holdings (SHLD) is now in danger of running out of cash and ceasing operations. That could spell the end for the iconic American retailer, which is what we were worried about when we warned investors to stay away from Sears shares in January.But Sears isn’t the only seemingly cheap retailer stock we advised against owning.
Founded in 1916, Kronos Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:KRO) is one of the largest producers of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments in the world. The holding company Valhi (NYSE:VHI) reports an 80% controlling stake in the company, 50% directly, 30% through its majority ownership of NL Industries (NYSE:NL), and I’m sure it is glad it does considering the stock went on a monumental run in 2017.
