Hardware & Lumber with its Rapid True Value retail arm gained 291% since place on BUY RATED list

Last year was not a great year for IC Insider Buy Rated stocks but quite a number did well, particularly those of the junior market. The same can’t be said for 2015, except in the case of Trinidad stocks that are under pressure mostly from flat earnings and rising interest rates in that country.
Trinidadian stocks have hardly gone anywhere the Jamaican ones are soaring after a long period of drought. There are three triple winners in the main Jamaican market including Hardware and lumber that is up 291 percent since we selected it as Buy Rated. Interestingly, they are no losing stocks in this market. The junior stocks have erased most of the losses suffered earlier and now only two stocks record any losses. Technical indicators are pointing to BUY Rated 5-15the Jamaican rally continuing for the rest of the year with lower inflation and interest rates coupled with continued strong profit gains. Trinidad stocks will continue to be under pressure but there are a few severely undervalued ones in that market that could post decent gains in the months ahead.
Access still has further to go as the future looks good for growth in profits but the price of the stock could be trading around current levels for some time but there is limited volumes available, this one becomes a longer term buy with the price where is currently lies. Caribbean Cream and Paramount seems to have quite some gains to deliver in the months ahead as improving results encourage investors to buy into the growth prospects. Lasco Financial could be going anywhere with Mayberry buying 20 percent and buying more in the market of a stock with limited float and Medical Disposables has good potential to deliver a decent gain.
The main market may have had lots of gains so far but there is much more to come from even some of the top performers such as Jamaica Stock Exchange, National Commercial Bank, Caribbean Cement and Carreras to name a few. Over in Trinidad, Guardian Holdings is undervalued but National Flour is severely undervalued, Trinidad Cement is a huge buy with much upside potential especially with debt restructuring leading to lower interest cost and lower energy cost in Jamaica and Barbados.
