5 Must-See Charts to Finish the Week

1.    Columbia Sportswear (COLM - Free Report) hasn’t missed on earnings in 5 years. That’s an impressive track record for a retailer. Shares treaded water in 2018 but have now broken out to new 5-year highs in 2019. Shares are no longer cheap, with a forward P/E of 23. Does the stock have anything left in the tank?

2.    Exxon (XOM - Free Report) hit another low in 2018 but has rebounded this year as crude prices have risen. Shares are up 22% year-to-date but are still nowhere near 2014 highs. Is the worst finally over for Big Oil?

3.    Chevron (CVX - Free Report) has been more popular on the Street than Exxon as shares hit a low all the way back in 2015. It has beat twice in a row. The big news is the Anadarko acquisition, which remains in doubt now that Occidental has increased its offer.

4.    Sony (SNE - Free Report) has been dirt cheap in 2019. It’s trading at just 10x forward earnings on fears that video game streaming will decimate the video game box industry, of which Sony’s PlayStation is a leader. But will it?

5.    Helen of Troy (HELE - Free Report) saw its shares spike in 2018 but they have since cooled, falling 12% year-to-date. The maker of the OXO kitchen products hasn’t missed since 2015. It recently announced it was trying to find a buyer for its personal brand segment which includes Pert, Brut and Sure. How does the consumer look in 2019? Tune into HELE to find out.
