If you are a long-term investor with some cash that you'd like to invest, now is a great time to buy stocks. The stock market is still well off its 2015 highs since pulling back in August. In this week's Weekly, we highlight two existing holdings (i.e. Walt Disney and our Large Cap Value ETF) as well as one that we don't own... our Stock of the Week... Phillips 66 (PSX).
As highlighted in the graph above, now is a great time to buy more of our large cap value ETF (iShares Russell 1000 Value - IWD). Value stocks have been underperforming growth stocks over the last several years (mainly because of the Federal Reserve's accommodative monetary policies), but this is not usually the case over the long-term. You can read more here about why this has been happening, and why we believe now is a great time to buy.
Walt Disney (DIS) is another stock we own that is presenting a great buying opportunity now. The stock has been overly beat up since its last earnings announcement. You can read more about our views on Disney here.
Lastly, this week's "Stock of the Week" is Phillips 66 (PSX). PSX is a refining company that is also involved in some other related businesses too. We don't currently own shares of Phillips 66, but it is not a stock we are opposed to owning in the future. Famous value investor, Warren Buffet, owns over 10% of this company (he purchased shares recently). You can read our complete Phillips 66 "Stock of the Week" report here.
