The GMD Commentary: Sunday, January 7, 2018

In the GMD Commentary I am featuring two stocks this week, Total System Services (TSS) and Westlake Chemical Corporation (WLK).

First in the GMD Commentary is TSS.  Total System Services, Inc. (TSS) provides payment processing services in the United States, Europe, Canada, Mexico, and internationally.  It also provides fraud management services to monitor the unauthorized use of accounts. TSS has benefited greatly from growth in consumer transactions, especially online transactions.

Westlake Chemical Corporation (WLK) manufactures and markets basic chemicals, vinyls, polymers, and building products.  In addition, the company’s products are used in various consumer and industrial markets, especially residential and commercial construction. WLK offers its products to a range of customers.  For example, these include chemical processors, plastics fabricators, small construction contractors, municipalities, and supply warehouses.  WLK’s market is primarily in North America and Europe.

There are articles on my website and on my Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages.  These articles discuss all of topics mentioned in my Commentary.

Finally, remember to DYOD: Do your own due diligence.
