Bargain Hunting

“These stocks like Freeport-McMoRan , U.S. Steel , I just think that they’re inexpensive on a earnings basis and they’re just being dumped because of liquidity problems in the marketplace. But, if you look at U.S. Steel, it trades at four times next year’s earnings. These are much cheaper than any financial stock that trades in the marketplace and a lot less risk.”
