Bill Gunderson's Radio Play of the Day: Meritage Homes

The valuation still looks reasonable to me.

Now that the stock passes the performance and the valuation test, am I ready to buy?

The stock must pass one more test. A visual check of a one-year chart:

I never buy stocks in downtrends. Sideways trends make me yawn. Topping out and rolling over trends are definitely taboo. This is a trend that should be sold.

Stocks that are in healthy uptrends and not too extended are my favorites. I especially like fresh, new breakouts.

That's it! Meritage passes my three rigorous tests.

Data from Best Stocks Now App

The stock earns an overall grade of "A-." I only buy "A-" or better. This currently represents the top 7% of the entire market. Of the more than 3,000 stocks that I follow, Meritage comes in at 121.

Clients of Gunderson Capital Management with an aggressive to moderate risk profile are long the stock.
