J.M. Smucker
(NYSE:SJM): Take a look at my chart for J.M. Smucker. The relative strength chart is an index based on the price of Smucker shares divided by the S&P value each day. As the numerator (Smucker’s share price) increases, or the denominator (the S&P) sinks, the ratio becomes larger and the index rises. This chart astutely illustrates the benefits of a stable business like Smucker during volatile economic times. The stock surged in comparison to the S&P in 2008 when the market began to fail. But look at Smucker’s performance during the recovery. Savvy management and a good business model pushed Smucker ahead of the S&P. Buy Smucker today and lock in a 2.4% yield.
