Investing 

While I’ve shared others ideas on investing, I figured I should share some of my own ideas (disclaimer:I own stock in the companies named, but don’t intend to sell them in the near future.).

A couple of investments I like:

Cato Stores: ticker: CATO; I like this company as a contrarian value investment. It’s a ladies clothing retailer based on the southeast us. The company has little debt on its balance sheet, a low p/e, and positive free cash flow. Despite this, the company’s unloved due to some bad sales  Fourth quarter of 2016. Since everyone is down on retailers right now, it seems like not a bad risk. 

Transocean, ticker:RIG; this is a bet on the energy market recovering. It’s an offshore oil driller. The company has been cleaning up its balance sheet, reducing debt and staff while the oil market has been down. I see the company being in a good position once the market turns around later in 2017. 

That’s it for this morning. My next post on this will be a review of some small cap stocks, with some thoughts on them all.
