Why Rite Aid Is the Wrong Play

By

Unimpressive second-quarter -- especially compared to Walgreen's profits.

Procter & Gamble (PG):
Jeffries slapped a Buy rating on the company.

My thoughts:

1. Cliché or not, people will continue to buy diapers for the little rugrats that run through them like hotcakes, as well as paper towels to clean up their frequent spills.

2. It's not insanely cheap at 14.02 times the fiscal 2010 estimate, but I'd still consider dipping my big toe in the pool because it has good potential for growth looking out over the next decade. More recently, the earnings estimate for the present year has picked up, which is interesting, too.

3. This isn't an explosive situation, but the shares have the potential to be a steady performer in the coming years.

Carnival
(CCL):
Nomura slapped a Buy rating on the cruise line.

1. This is a good move. In the next year or two, I believe this stock is really going to rock as people spend more on travel, gambling, booze, and all the other stuff that goes part and parcel with riding on one of its Fun Ships.

2. As I've mentioned before, Cuba is the big wild card in the industry right now. If the country ever opens its doors to Americans, demand for travel could really get a big goose or a positive kick in the pants.

Have a great day and an even better weekend!
