Bear of the Day: Carlisle (CSL)

Read MoreHide Full Article

Disappointing stocks are everywhere. I’m sorry if I am the one who had to tell you but it’s true. With the market chopping around, worried about Pelosi vs Mnuchin, you know what I mean. We need a deal done now. Actually, it should have happened six months ago…but I digress.

This brings to mind something I like to call the Bear of the Day. Now,  before you folks get upset with me for calling out what is inevitably your favorite stock, bear with me for a moment (see what I did there.)

The Bear of the Day to me, is not necessarily, a stock you should run away from. Merely, what I try to do here is shed some light on a situation. Maybe you are a long-term shareholder wondering why, or maybe you are a timid wannabe shareholder that hasn’t yet made the leap. I am not here to steer you either way, but rather, to bring to light some thing you may not have known.

The Zacks Rank allows me to do so. I am, by nature, kinda lazy. Rather than take thousands of hours to analyze each and every stock on Earth, I take the easy route and allow Zacks to do the heavy lifting. Based on earnings estimate revisions from analysts on Wall Street, I make my decision.

Today’s Bear of the Day is Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) Carlisle (CSL - Free Report) . Carlisle Companies Incorporated operates as a diversified manufacturer of engineered products in the United States, Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, Africa, and internationally. 

The reason for the unfavorable Zacks Rank stems from recent negative earnings estimate revisions. Over the last week, two analysts have cut their numbers while one has shaved next year too. The bearish moves have dropped the Zacks Consensus Estimates for the current year from $5.80 to $5.49 while next year’s number is off from $7.50 to $7.11.
