If you’ve ever had the privilege of walking into a Casey’s store, you will understand why this company is growing. Not only do they offer gas and the usual products that come with a gas station, they also offer pizza in many of their stores. The pizza is great and adds a dynamic to the store that helps diversify revenue. Similar to other stores, these have their place in the American culture and should continue to thrive as long as they maintain what they’ve done in the past in terms of brand image.

Whirlpool is the creator of many products, including our washers and dryers. Throughout the years, the company has been a brand many could recognize and continue to today. You have to keep in mind that these companies could be affected by a market slow down because they sell big ticket items. However, Whirlpool has been able to stand the test of time and looks primed to continue in that direction. Now, let us take a look at the most recent numbers to determine if the company is going to continue in the right direction.

Facebook has just unveiled a new feature for the platform, and that is Facebook Stories. Following in the footsteps of Snpachat and Instagram, the company has added this feature to remain competitive with their peers. This is great for Facebook users as they can begin telling their stories in one place, and it also helps businesses because they can market and advertise all in one spot. Who this hurts is Snapchat, because these companies are taking the features of their mobile platform and integrating it into theirs. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the near term.

Target is known for their cute dog and competitive pricing, which is a must in the current retail space. With companies losing market share to online retailers, not only Target, but all retail companies have to adjust, which begins with beefing up the online presence Target has. The company is in no danger of going anywhere unlike some out there, but they’ll have to continue the adjustments if they want to remain relevant. Instead of the normal fundamentals, let us go over some of the comparison points you should look at when researching the company.

An item that many people hear about but are unsure of are ETF’s, which are exchange traded funds. They work similar to mutual funds in there are underlying assets that back the product, but these are traded on the open market and can be traded like a stock. ETF’s allow investors to gain exposure to certain market sectors they otherwise might have trouble entering. For now, let us take a look at the ETF ticker XLF, which tracks the financial sector. This is an important sector to watch as interest rates increase.

Despite something just short of a miracle, Sears is going to be on the list of companies that have been destroyed thanks to online shopping and the evolution of retail. Sure, some of the blame could be put on the company in that it failed to adjust to the trends of the consumer, but the brand is tied to a demographic that is slightly older. When you talk to a 20 year old, they have either never stepped foot into a Sears, or just used it to pass through into a mall.

As the Kentucky Derby approaches, many people fail to realize the Churchill Downs is a publicly traded company. The company owns Churchill Downs, as well as Arlington International Racecourse and Fair Grounds Slots and Racecourse. Horse racing is a very interesting industry as it spans the world and there are many different factors that can affect the industry. Certainly there is the public pressure that the sport may be curial, but this sport has been around for generations and is not going anywhere for the near future.

Cheniere Energy is a company that focuses on liquefied natural gas, which could become important as we hunt for the next large scale fuel. The company has done well in terms of stock price, but with oil and other commodity prices suffering, anyone in the energy field has felt the pressure. With these kinds of companies, you have to dive deep to understand what they do and if it’s sustainable and complementary to your portfolio. With that, let us dive into the numbers and see how the company has been in the short term.

As the cell phone industry continues to grow in competitiveness, Verizon has been a leader among them. Cell phones are now being used more as a computer than a phone, which puts cell phone companies in a great position to succeed. However, with the changing technology, Verizon has to be able to adjust. They demonstrated this with the addition of the unlimited data after facing pressure from their competition to do so. Only time will tell what the next pressure point will be. Now, let us take a look at the most recent numbers and see how the short term health of the company is.

Five Below

Five Below is a store that sells all of their items at five dollars or below, which is a great price point for many individuals. Another way to look at this is people will still shop here during an economic slow down because the prices will change minimally and stop at five dollars. Certainly the risks are there as they may not have everything or the quality could be average compared, but Five Below certainly hits an area of the market that is gaining respect. Now, let us take a look at the most recent numbers and get a feel for the fundamental health of the company.
