    By: Ryan Fulmer
    Sunday, February 4, 2018

    Often as I have been driving around town, I wonder how all of these restaurants survive! Everywhere you look there are new restaurants in Stark County.  However, it does not matter whether the restaurant is new or old because there will be a 6o minute wait.

    In the dot-com stock market bubble one of my friend’s fathers used to ask me, “What does your father, Denny (Beese Fulmer’s co-founder), think of Lucent Technologies?” In the 1990’s Lucent was a high-flying stock that many retail investors chased, but ultimately were disappointed in when the stock price crashed.

  • Young People and Capitalism

    Recently the Wall Street Journal published an interesting article: “Why Do the Young Reject Capitalism?” Young being defined as people aged 18 to 29.  Harvard’s Institute of Politics has conducted a survey that indicates more than half of young Americans do not support capitalism.  One-third support socialism. 

  • Governments Deep in Debt, the American Consumer…. Not so Much

    As we go to press, it looks as if the state of Illinois will avoid their bonds being downgraded to non-investment grade or “junk” bonds. Chicago bonds are already in the junk category and Chicago Public School debt is ranked even lower.

    Wednesday, July 5, 2017

    The first half of 2017 has been a good one for both stocks and bonds. While the second quarter wasn’t as good as the first for stocks, it was still positive and added to the year-to-date return. 

  • Sherwin-Williams’ stock price keeps hitting new highs. Is it time to sell?

    By: Ryan Fulmer
    Sunday, May 7, 2017

    It’s true! Sherwin-Williams’ stock price has been on a roar for several years--outpacing the broad stock market and industry peers by a wide margin. If you had invested $100 in Sherwin-Williams in 2011, it would now be worth around $325--versus $250 for the S&P 500 and $200 for industry peers.

    Monday, March 6, 2017

    In late 2015, Diebold submitted a takeover offer to Wincor Nixdorf shareholders. The offer represented a combination of cash and stock and was a 35% premium to the previous day’s stock price.

  • Question: “Will local refiner Marathon Petroleum be a beneficiary of Trump’s energy policy?”

    By: Ryan Fulmer
    Saturday, December 31, 2016

    It might surprise you to know that one of the largest refineries in North America, Marathon Petroleum, is headquartered about two hours away in Findlay, Ohio. Marathon operates seven refineries, one of which is located here in Canton and produces about 93,000 barrels of refined products per day.

  • Hope and Change: Will Trump’s Infrastructure Plan Help the Economy?

    By: Dennis Fulmer, CFA
    Saturday, December 31, 2016

    President-elect Trump is reported to be creating a task force to implement his campaign promise to increase infrastructure spending. After reviewing his website, we like reading about a “deficit-neutral plan… that supports investments in transportation, clean water, a modern and reliable electricity grid, telecommunications, security infrastructure, and other pressing domestic infrastructure needs.”

  • Tariffs and the Great Depression

    By: Lynn Hamilton
    Wednesday, March 1, 2017

    Since the Great Depression, tariffs and trade policies have not been major issues between Democrats and Republicans or Conservatives and Liberals. All Presidential candidates (until the election of 2016) have either favored stability or a more open international trade policy.

  • Ask the Rational Investor: “Should investors worry about Boeing’s 737 MAX issue?”
    Monday, April 8, 2019

    Boeing’s 737 MAX is one of the most anticipated updates to the 737, which currently has an order backlog of over 4,600 aircraft, representing 78% of Boeing’s overall commercial aircraft backlog. Over the next 5 years, it is estimated that the MAX will represent approximately 33% of Boeing’s sales and almost half of Boeing earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT).

    Considering the significance of the MAX upgrade, it’s no surprise that stock prices have dropped from a recent high of $440 on March 1st, to $370 (3/27/19) after the Ethiopian Airlines crash and the eerily similar Lion Air crash.  The two incidents in conjunction caused the worldwide grounding of the airliner.
