Some of the aerospace stocks have stalled recently after a putting up stellar performance last year, including one of my long time favorites - Precision Castparts. I like it here on the pullback and see a few catalysts to move the shares back up to its highs.READ FULL POST

I am sticking with my recommendation of a Panera turnaround - and think this multi-year restructuring will eventually lead to better earnings and growth. It may not happen in the next quarter or two, but I believe it will happen and for those who have a little longer term horizon the stock is a buy.READ FULL POST

The industrial stocks are one of my favorite sectors in the S&P 500 and have been over the past several months. We own quite a few in Action Alerts PLUS, Jim Cramer's Charitable Trust, with our two largest positions being Eaton and Johnson Controls. The industrial sector is one of the most levered to an improving economy and also to higher interest rates. Over the last few weeks, I've been encouraged to see the pickup in several manufacturing economic data points.READ FULL POST

The fundamentals are strong and the valuation points to opportunity. I have followed Discover Financial since the days when it was spun off from Morgan Stanley in July 2007. It issues both credit and debit cards, provides other loans and operates one of four major payment networks that process and clear point-of-sale purchases in the U.S.READ FULL POST

The financials have had a rocky start to 2014 after starting the year strong out of the gate. I like the sector because I think the U.S. economy is on the mend and as the data improves, so will loan growth. Plus, a better economy should lead to a steeper yield curve, helping to lift Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margins - in turn, helping profitability levels.READ FULL POST

It's been a pretty volatile last 12 months of sports apparel maker, Lululemon. After being the darling on Wall Street for many years with double digit growth, superior execution and exciting sports apparel products, the company stumbled in 2013 and shares have fallen 34% from its highs.READ FULL POST

If you'd read some of my posts on my blog, you'll notice a pattern. I like turnaround stories, management changes, and restructurings. Companies that have been mismanaged but have a brand name and potential for market share gains, revenue upside and potential for margins to recover which in turn could lead to positive operating leverage. Based on this theme, my next idea is Diebold.READ FULL POST

Express Scripts is one of the largest PBM (Pharmacy Benefit Management) companies in the U.S. with over 1.5 billion in administered prescriptions a year. It is an industry bellwether, has a strong new management team and a solid balance sheet. 2013 was a decent year for the company and the stock gained 30% but I think the story gets better in 2014...READ FULL POST

I always like a good restructuring story especially where a company has good assets, a strong balance sheet and solid Free Cash Flow generation potential. Royal Dutch Shell fits the bill in my view. It is one of the largest energy producers in the world that operates in 140 countries, has a total proved reserve base of over 13 Billion Barrels of Oil Equivalent....READ FULL POST

I like the long-term story of Panera and the price on a pullback. Earlier this week, on CNBC's Fast Money Halftime, Mike Murphy and I debated the bull vs. bear case on Panera. I was the bull. It was ahead of the company's 4Q earnings report and although I'd like to take credit for saying to buy it ahead of the print, I didn't. My positive position really was more longer term, not quarter-specific...READ FULL POST
