Microsoft – shows that all you need to grow is moat!

Nucor – weak week or bigger weakness coming?

There is nothing going on the market lately and truth to tell I have no inspiration to write posts. I mean, if I think that shares are expensive and they are barely moving there is nothing which can potentially change my mind in short term. This is why I prefer...

Hormel Foods – it is all about multiple…

Having no idea to which company might be a potential buying opportunity (probably I should further expand my coverage spectrum) I went through best and worst performing companies over some periods of time. One which brought my attention was Hormel with a very weak 1...
