So let's first take a look at what you'd want to see from a perfect stock, and then decide if Micron Technology (Nasdaq: MU) fits the bill.

 

Do You Trust the Earnings at Dean Foods?

 Although business headlines still tout earnings numbers, many investors have moved past net earnings as a measure of a company's economic output.

The Big Money Says to Buy Diageo

 One of the great maxims of traders and Wall Street pros is to follow the "smart money." I'm not much for the thesis that institutional shoppers tend to make smarter investing decisions, but many of you who've read my ruminations on insider buying say you'd also like to know how the Big Money is betting.

 Analysts and investors have beaten down the solar sector down over the past few weeks as uncertainty about 2011 enters the market. So it’s time we look to see whether investors have gone too far, leaving us with a Black Friday sale. I've picked SunPower (Nasdaq: SPWRA) for today's price check because it's a solar leader and has been on my value radar for some time.

 

Why You Still Need Small-Cap Stocks

 Bill Miller, the well-known mutual fund manager at Legg Mason, recently called large-cap stocks a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity." I've read reports from other investors and the Wall Street cognoscenti that large caps are the place to be.

Whoa! What Just Happened to My Stock?

 Resist the urge to high-five everyone in the cubicles next to you. Your stock may have just strapped on a rocket pack and taken off for the moon, but smart investors won't celebrate until they know that move up was justified. Without a fundamental basis for the bounce, these stocks can quickly make the return trip down.
