The best-performing U.S. stock over the past 30 years isn’t a household name like Costco Wholesale Corp. or Johnson & Johnson. It’s Balchem Corp. [[BCPC]], up 107,099% since the end of 1985, according to FactSet Research Systems. You’d never heard of Balchem? I have been an investor in the company for quite some time and […]
At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in Balchem Corporation as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns.
The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well even though the indicators for the entire market are not extremely optimistic. More concern is on geo-political events that could cause a pullback. Be cautious with any stock that is setting a 52-week (or close to it) as I do not believe the big investors are excited about big new growth.
The investment indicator trends are not very positive right now. It is very important to be cautious on any slight moves as they are likely to pull back. Solid companies will continue to be okay and this may be a time to buy at a discount. Keep your money dry so that you can jump at the right time.
We seem to be stuck in a bit of a holding pattern for now. I continue to stress that it is very important as to the stocks that you choose to have in your portfolio.
The market pulled back last week and hasn’t been great (except for individual stocks) for the past couple weeks. This is why it is so important to balance your index funds with well-chosen individual stocks.
