- [By Bryan Murphy]
Every week, just as a matter of routine and discipline, I run a scan of stocks that fit a strict set of fundamental and technical criteria. Most of the results are worthless (though I know that going in), but there's always a gem buried in there somewhere. This week's gem is Valmont Industries, Inc. (NYSE:VMI) - a metal fabricator. No, it's not the sexiest of businesses, but VMI certainly is the sexiest (relative to its risk) of stocks for those concerned about a company's consistency.
