  • Stanley Black & Decker grew strongly in 2021 due to the housing boom while the Fed cut interest rates.
  • Now the EV/Sales ratio is almost at 2008 levels, this indicates that the company is extremely favorably valued.
  • I expect the stock to move sideways at first, after which the stock will start a strong advance when the quarterly figures show a positive outlook.
  • Now is a great buying opportunity because the company is lowering its costs and improving its gross margin.
