The best Bull and Bear pitches based on recency and number of recommendations.

3M isn’t nimble – but it is consistent. It has beaten the S&P over the past 1, 3, 5, 10, and 15 year periods. In heady up-markets, I’d expect it to lag. In flat or bear markets, it should do at least a little better than the market. Considering we’re… More

All of the metrics for 3M's business are great, and this is a company that has a role in pretty much every day of our lives with products like 3M tape, post-its, automotive products, etc. But the 14.7x P/E, slow EPS growth, and 1.3 PEG indicate that… More

3M isn’t nimble – but it is consistent. It has beaten the S&P over the past 1, 3, 5, 10, and 15 year periods. In heady up-markets, I’d expect it to lag. In flat or bear markets, it should do at least a little better than the market. Considering we’re far into a bull run, I like the company as a safe harbor.
