Huntington Ingalls: A Value Stock That’s Poised To Perform (NYSE:HII)

Value-investing likely will not gain mass popularity because the words “popular” and “value investing” are opposite from one another. To put it another way, if a stock were popular, then it likely wouldn’t be trading in value territory.

From 2011 to 2012, gold underwent a two-year topping process at the $1,800/oz handle. Gold is now up over 18% YTD and recently breached this critical resistance level.
