Similar to most of the top players in the consumer packaged goods industry, Conagra Brands (CAG) has witnessed its volumes decline, bringing revenues down with it. The company did post net revenues of $2.17 billion during the second quarter, a healthy growth rate of 3.8%, but a single quarter of growth is certainly not a trend, and how Conagra performs over the rest of the year will play a huge....More>>>
In a junior sector that has become quite a stock-picker’s market over the past nine months, I find some of the safest and lowest risk opportunities come when a company is undergoing a major change.

Almost all the coverage you will find about Sunshine Capital Inc is press releases by Sunshine Capital Inc. Sunshine trades over the counter and is currently priced at $6.00 per share making it, in the view of my stick in the mud investor adviser, a “penny stock” too volatile for his firm to get involved with. A recent press release from Sunshine obliges me to clarify a piece I....More>>>
