PURPLE = Barely Passed C3 Moral Screening Tests (Essentially Neutral).
RED = Failed C3 Moral Screening Tests.
A rare report is below. Of all the assets that made it on to our radar this week we actually had an abundance of positively rated companies. So, we decided to be the bearer of good news rather than the bearer of bad news this week and only include the positively rated moral assets in our report. We got so excited that there are even two bonus picks at the bottom associated with natural gas.
Tyler Technologies (TYL) – 78% of 18 polled analysts are saying that TYL is a buy on popular trading platform Robinhood and a certain court jester stock picking site has hinted at TYL being on their list. Governments are big fans of TYL as TYL is the big helper of local authorities in carrying out their digital responsibilities. TYL boasts a big market share among underappreciated customers and their SaaS looks to be profitable.
TYL has even built up so much report with local governments that the federal government may be a customer of the future. This means a long period of profitability is potentially in TYL’s future. Not to mention that TYL has beat out the market for the last 50 years in a very quiet manner.
What does TYL actually do? Well, they help local governments get organized. Not an easy task by any means. Think of it this way. If you ever requested a birth certificate, paid a violation of some sort or even paid for your sewer bill then there is a good chance that TYL played a role behind the scenes with processing and organizing.
TYL gets a rare Gold rating from C3 because even though it supports government, it does help society keep the peace and organization in a society has complex as ours is much needed and not easy, so we are glad someone is up to the task. TYL does not do anything awful with their extracurricular activities, but we will keep an eye on them if they get into the federal government space.
The Trade Desk (TTD) – TTD features a bunch of buy recommendations across the market universe. TTD is an innovator in Digital Marketing and its Q2 earnings report showed that it gained market share among stiff competition. TTD use to only work with middle-men advertisers that were associated with big brands, but their new model is now targeting more direct relationships with the brands themselves. Long-term relationships with huge brands will make TTD a solid financial asset for a long-term holding portfolio.
TTD only gets Purple rating because of some of the advertisements they do for certain brands. You can imagine that a secular marketing company as big as TTD has some suspect clients. This of course is considered a remote evil, but an evil none-the-less that should be considered before purchasing TTD stock.
Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (CWST) – CWST is not as strong of a financial recommendation as TYL or TTD, but this waste management company does have some backing and potential. CWST did not turn up any major red flags in our research, but it should be investigated by the individual concerning its finances.
CWST has risen consistently over the last five years and is probably a good long-term hold, but analysts are divided as to whether or not they can continually expand their market share.
In terms of morals, CWST is a pretty run of the mill waste collection and processing company. They do their fair share to recycle and do not participate in anything vehemently anti-Christian.
Golar LNG (GLNG) – GLNG has moderately strong backing from a diverse group of analysts. It made it on to C3’s radar at the last minute this week and that is why we decided to give a bonus pick for this week’s report. GLNG is an essentially a gas company but not the way you think. GLNG operates liquefied natural gas carriers and floating storage and regasification units.
GLNG had a rough go during the pandemic, but it is almost back to its five-year highs and given everything going on with ga s and oil and the supply chain, GLNG has room to grow right now. The Purple rating is not Gold because there were certain things that C3 likes to see that we could not find out about GLNG. Nothing strictly opposed to Christian morality but just a lack of information makes us a bit uneasy here at C3.
TIP: go check out Cheniere (LNG)if you are liking Natural Gas companies that did not turn up any red flags in the C3 screening process.
Please remember to spend time in prayer with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ before making any major financial decisions. Speaking with friends and family is always great too.
