Update on Owens & Minor Inc.: An Undervalued Speculation or a Value Trap?

Introduction

Owens & Minor Inc. reported earnings yesterday and simultaneously revised their 2018 earnings outlook lower.  As fate would have it, I produced an article and a video where I highlighted 12 undervalued dividend growth research candidates which included Owens & Minor.  When I produced the video, the FAST Graph fundamentals analyzer software tool was still reflecting previous earnings estimates.  However, those earnings estimates have been adjusted as analysts have lowered their expectations based on company guidance.  Consequently, I have posted this update as an addendum to my previous article found here.

Updated Estimates for Owens & Minor

Summary and Conclusions

As I stated many times in the past, nothing replaces comprehensive research and due diligence when considering investments in stocks.  Consequently, we designed the FAST Graph fundamentals analyzer software tool to efficiently facilitate a more comprehensive research and due diligence process. FAST Graphs provide essential fundamentals at a glance saving the user hours of tedious work.  However, they represent but the first step in a more comprehensive effort.  That is why the tool includes external links that provide additional research, to include links to the company’s website.
