Hi SolomonsPrayer!

I haven't read the article to which you refer, but please understand that TMF articles are just that...and written by a variety of authors with varying opinions/approaches (i.e. "motley"), and there is no "company line". Folks can write what they think. Stocks in these articles are NOT necessarily TMF formal recommendations (unless they have been recommended by one of TMF's paid services).

Whether or not a given author has done a DCF analysis or other analyses before writing an article but just not mentioned it is an unknown. As to "fluff", etc., I do know that TMF articles are VERY limited in terms of length versus some other sources out there, so that may be a factor.

Bottom line for me: I look at these opinion articles as possible idea sources, and take them with a grain of salt...and do my own due diligence. I would never buy stocks on the basis of the articles alone.

Cheers!
