Enbridge – Carrying Out Its Strategic Priorities Will Reward Long-Term Shareholders

On November 2, 2018, Enbridge (ENB) released solid Q3 2018 results and provided an update on its strategic initiatives. ENB is heavily leveraged but once it completes its secured growth project inventory I envision ENB generating significant Free Cash Flow which can be used to reduce debt and support  continued low double digit percentage growth [...]

Moody’s Corporation – The Pullback I Have Awaited Has Arrived

In my March 3rd analysis written exclusively for Financial Freedom is a Journey subscribers I indicated I viewed Moody's (NYSE: MCO) as being overvalued. MCO's share price has taken a beating in recent months and less than impressive Q3 results released October 26th has knocked another ~13.44% from its share price. I like it when [...]

3M – Don’t Give Up On This Great Company

3M (MMM) released its Q3 2018 results on October 23rd. Investors did not take well to the results nor the downward EPS guidance and promptly lopped ~$8.80 off the share price.
