Q: These are my biggest losers across my accounts. What are their prospects? Are any worth keeping, or is just time to move on? I donít mind some risk, but donít want to hold the hopeless ones any longer.

Q: Hey Peter,

Looking at taking a large position in NWL. I feel like this stock has taken a hit due to a poorly executed merger (Newell Brands + Rubbermaid). I feel like the stock is likely to take a bath in Q4 report another bad quarter. Thereafter, I feel like the pressure will be on Michael Polk to drive results or else he'll be out. What are your thoughts on this company stock and this industry as a whole?

Q: I wish I had taken you more seriously in September when you said that Newell is "in general is not a company we would be overly interested in."
Now, based on your recent comments, and it's disaster quarterly report, I am ready to sell and lick my wounds. Would you agree?
Can you give a couple of suggestions for replacement in the consumer goods or health care space. I am looking for growth alone or growth plus income.
Thanks in advance for your great advice.

Q: NWL has declined sharply in recent weeks due to (1) Hurricane Harvey on its U.S. manufactured resin businesses, and (2) bankruptcy proceeding of Toys R Us, which NWL is one of their top suppliers. NWL has issued revised 2017 guidance due to the impact of Harvey but, in my opinion, it's not material. Is the selloff overblown? Is it a good entry point now, or is it catching a falling knife? Welcome your thoughts. Thank you.

Q: I was wondering if you could add anything to my understanding of this company whose share price has stagnated over the past year. The takeover of Jarden was well received by analysts and the quarterly results afterward seemed to suggest things were progressing well. A number of analysts recommend the stock so is it just range bound at this time for no particular reason or is there something else at play?

Appreciate your insight.

Paul F.
