On CAPS, 98% of the 1,325 members who have rated McDermott believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
MDR has fallen significantly from over $13 per share a few months ago, to under $9 today. This drop is due to missed earnings.
This stock has all the marks of a stock "on sale." P/E ratio, price-to-book, and debt levels are lower than many of their competitors. Current ratio is in-line with competitors, return on average assets is higher than competitors.
It may take a while for price to recover, but with current price near 52 week low, and a recent support-level check, I think it's a good entry point.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, McDermott may not be your top choice.
