Weekly Roundup - June 3, 2017
|Happy Weekend! Check out what's been going on in my world and some of the best articles from around the blogosphere.|
As it's been for the last few years "buy the dip" has been a winning strategy. After a small ~1.5% dip about 2 weeks ago the markets have surged higher once again. The S&P 500 had been flirting with the 2,400 level but kept drifting lower; however, that can no longer be said as it's currently sitting up at 2,439. It's been a truly incredible run over the last 7 months or so and there's no real sign of the bull market stopping.
Of course, that doesn't mean that I'm going to just throw all my money in the market because deep down I'm value investor first and foremost. If I don't see companies trading at what I feel are attractive prices then I'll be sitting on the sidelines.
What companies are you finding attractive at the current valuations?
