In such a volatile market it seems very hard to locate non-resource stocks that can "hang on", let alone grow. I don't need to even mention those that have done the opposite and plunged to extremely low levels.
Putting aside, for the moment, the arguments for holding cash:
I've had a layman's look at recommends [which don't seem to offer much value], target prices [which are often contradictory to one another or to SP performance], P/Es, dividends and basic charts in relation to a number of stocks.
On those grounds I can find little to consistently support companies such as COH, BXB, SHL, TSE, NWS, LLC, CTX - and a number of others.
I "think" I can find better evidence to support TLS, CSL, LEI, WOR and CPU.
Also I am wondering is there is any consistency of view between TAs and FAs [being aware that some of you may place strong emphasis on both] concerning the abysmal recent performance of TOL. The charts would seem to suggest it's down the tube. Does a fundamental analysis support this view?
Just posting my idle Saturday morning thoughts.
Thanks for any response and comments on these or other stocks.
