3 Reasons to Sell Corning

Today, as part of our ongoing series looking at reasons to buy and sell certain stocks, Brenton focuses on the bear case against glass maker Corning. Though the stock looks incredibly cheap by most valuation metrics, some would argue that there are some serious secular headwinds that will continue to weigh on revenue growth. In particular, the company's core business has been struggling, and burgeoning opportunities in specialty glass products might not be enough to offset those declines. In the following video, Brenton outlines a few points for investors to consider with Corning. Later, he'll follow up with his personal view on whether Corning is a buy, sell, or hold.

    If Motley Fool says sell, then I'm a buyer. If they say buy, I'm selling. Two proven ways to make money: Do the opposite of what Motley Fool and Jim Cramer recommend. Seeing as both are down on Corning, the stock should be ready for a 30% pop sometime this year.
