“This fx issue is a big thing,” adds trader Tim Seymour, founder of EmergingMoney.com.
“It’s troubling,” admits trader Stephen Weiss, managing partner at Short Hills Capital and author of “The Big Win”.
All the traders say these developments have made them even more cautious. Right now they suggest playing the market very conservatively. “Let the market digest this. I certainly wouldn’t add right here,” says Finerman.
If you’re among those bargain hunters that are wondering whether Cummins or another stock is now too cheap to pass up, Weiss says think about the environment like this.
"At current levels a stock like Cummins is cheap, if you think current estimates stand." But the question is -- will current estimates stand?
Weiss doesn't think so. He doesn't see Europe resolving its crisis - that sends the dollar even higher and as a result Cummins and other companies may have to revise estimates even lower -- again – later in the year?
If that’s the case, it’s entirely possible that no multinational is cheap.
