Spotting Creation of Value - Additions to The List John Burbank,Ron Baron - Spotting Creation Of Value - Additions To The List
In my previous article on Spotting Creation of Value, I listed the number of ways I have personally observed that a company can create value for shareholders over time. I admitted in the article that it is very likely not a complete list. Well, I found this list from a great book called “100 to 1 In The Stock Market” by Thomas Phelps. At the end of the book, Mr. Phelps gave a list of what makes a stock grow, which I think is a great complementary to my list. The bold ones are missing in my list: More...

Why I Still Consider Kroger as a Buy Recommendation
In this article, let's take a look at the supermarket operator Kroger Co (NYSE:KR) and try to explain if this is an appealing investment opportunity or not, when shares of the company are trading nearly its 52-week high. Shares of the firm closed yesterday at $73.11, amassing a year-to-date return of 13.6%, which I consider attractive when compared to a market benchmark such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Further, the past September I wrote an article recommending the stock, and I think it has done pretty good, with a 42% return in the period. More...
