Stocks are trading below Peter Lynch value

As the trade war between the China and the U.S. continues, with Mexico suddenly being thrown into the mix, the stock market had a rocky month in May. Regardless, ETF Trends columnist Ian Young reported earlier this week that one industry appears to be holding up even as the overall market takes a beating: basic materials.

As a result, value opportunities may be found in the sector, which encompasses companies that are involved in the discovery, development and processing of raw materials like metals, minerals, chemicals and forestry products, among stocks that are trading below their Peter Lynch value.

It has a forward dividend yield of 4% according to the share price of $20.18 at close

Review of holdings and markets

Fund of America Class A Shares (without sales charge) returned 2.38% during the second quarter, underperforming the S&P 500 Index, which registered 3.09%.

In the second quarter, the Fund’s portfolio continued to exhibit what we view as well-diversified stock performance, with several technology-related stocks, as well as positive contributions from a number of other sectors. Equally important, detractors in the Fund’s portfolio were also diversified and relatively contained. While the market-cap bias of the Fund’s portfolio will keep us away from the FANG stocks—Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google (Alphabet)—which are valued at levels that have generated much financial journalism, we

By John Dorfman, Dorfman Value Investments

As recently as May 15, the U.S. stock market hit record highs. This might be a good time to take a few chips off the table. Some reasons:

  • Stocks are pricey, at 25 times earnings, versus a normal level around 15.
  • The Federal Reserve will likely be raising rates in the next two years, not lowering them.
  • The market has gone eight years without a decline for a calendar year.
  • President Trump is a divisive figure and an inexperienced leader.
  • The old market adage, “Sell in May and go away,” has some truth in it. More than 90% of the

These are interesting investment ideas generated by the GuruFocus double buy screen

As I consider myself something of a cratedigger of a value investor, GuruFocus is a valuable source of information. I’m always looking for new ideas and one cool screen GuruFocus has is the Double Buy screen. It allows you to see which stocks have been bought by both gurus and insiders. Separately that is data I am already interested in but screening for both at the same time is beyond good. These are currently the top three stocks that come up on the screen:

In a move that market watchers are calling “highly complementary to the strategic objectives of both companies”Â The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) has split its chlor-alkali and derivatives business from other petrochemicals, and merged chlorine operations with Olin Corporation (OLN) in a deal worth $5 billion. Through a tax-efficient Reverse Morris transaction, the two have created a company that could be the industry leader in chlor-alkali operations, tentatively valued at $7 billion.

All Gertie cares about is food, sniff walks, car rides, favorite toys, and napping. As long as her five favorite pastimes are regularly available, Gertie is content. She knows what makes her life comfortable. She doesn't get confused by distractions. The stock market is all about distractions. The job of the successful investor is to not get sidetracked by those distractions.
