Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of chemicals and climate-control equipment maker LSB Industries
So what: The company just released third-quarter results with 59% higher earnings year-over-year on 28% stronger sales. But analysts had expected even bigger jumps, so this was still a disappointment.
Now what: LSB remains a fantastic performer in a dull-as-doornails market, much like longtime newsletter recommendations Otter Tail
But let's get back to the "fantastic performer" part. LSB passes some insanely restrictive screens, to the point where fellow Fool Rex Moore invested real money in the stock. And at today's depressed prices, LSB shares are back in territory not seen since last week. The stock is up more than 40% over the last year. Not bad for a boring pail of dishwater, I'd say.
