  • Brent Kenwell says why Fastenal may be one of the best second half buys:
    Shares of Fastenal Company (FAST) are up about 1.5% in Thursday's premarket trading session. The stock is looking to recover some of its losses from Wednesday, where it slipped 2% despite beating on earnings per share and revenue expectations.

    Several analysts have come to its defense, though. Analysts at Raymond James called Fastenal a strong buy and assigned a $50 price target. This implies upside of roughly 20% over the next 12 months -- not bad.

    But even better? Baird's price target of $53, which implies about 26% upside over the next year. This price target goes alongside the analyst's outperform rating. When combined with Fastenal's near-3% dividend yield, the total return for investors over the next 12 months could not only handedly beat the market, but be quite stellar.
  • Wow manipulating this stock again. I keep adding. I wont sell less then $60 because that's where I think it's headed over the next year or 2. In the meantime I will collect the dividend.
  • Another prolific buying opportunity today for wise investors............... Upgrades are catching on slowly.
  • lol somewhat legal manipulation at its best. get this stock out of the news so people back off of it
  • Well, I will agree with the market being manipulated. I held RH for nearly six months and saw the price just go down, once they actually had good numbers and my position went green I bailed for a small gain, now it appears that RH seems to be the only retailer not impacted by Amazon?? Really? I owned WFM just before the buy out as well and sold when it went green for me. I also own TJX and WSM, two stocks that truly will not be impacted by Amazon yet their prices just languish. To blame anything on the Amazon impact is just ridiculous, no one knows what the impact of the internet retailer will be long term to brick and mortar, obviously it will impact certain markets stronger than others, but many will not even see the meter move at all from their presence.
    Fastenal is a strong company with a very good position, it is adjusting well to an ever changing manufacturing and industrial landscape in America, after reading the report last night, I see no reason for the drop and believe the price will appreciate back to the 50 mark, though this stock does seem to get a lot of negative attention.
    Don't believe it is in anyway associated with politics though.
  • This will rebound over the next few trading days.
  • Ok..bought few shrs 41.90..a start..60 looking to bottom here. I thought selling after Es was a mistake... until now.. :)
