The Priceline Group is most known for their website that allows people to find the cheapest deals for travel, but they also have other companies that are under their umbrella. With technology, there is a niche for a company such as this to filter through all the junk and find the cheapest alternatives for the consumer. If you step back and take a look, the company isn’t selling tickets, but rather selling time, because it is a faster avenue then shopping for yourself. We’re going to hop into the 8-K report and see how their most recent quarter went.

Fifth/Third Banking Corporation is a larger, regional bank out of the Chicago area stretching through to Ohio and Pennsylvania.  It is a traditional bank offering businesses and customers financial services and banking needs.  And, like all of the other financial companies in the world, their stocks were sold sharply during the financial crisis.  These companies have yet to see their stock prices return to pre-recession earnings-per-share averages.

Walgreens is a national company that many of us have had some exposure to, but right now they are in danger of not getting approval to purchase Rite Aid. The reason for the potential unwinding is that the FTC does not think that selling off 865 stores is enough to keep the market competitive. Shares of Rite-Aid have since falling sharply the last few days on fear of the deal falling through. Walgreens has been in a holding pattern and will only have to wait a few more days. The deadline has already been extended to this coming Friday, which indicates this is the final deadline.

The Procter and Gamble Company is responsible for many well known products such as Tide, Gillette, Bounty, and Dawn. When you step back and think about it, this is a well rounded company because even in a recession, people need to clean dishes, maintain personal hygiene, and clean clothes. Even though this is a recession resistant company, it is important to watch out for faults within the fundamentals or price of the stock. This can be achieved through detailed research and comparisons to other companies.

However, this is still a risk area to be in a brick and mortar shops are becoming more and more pressured.
