In "Buy Chevron Stock. It’s Been Punished Enough for Earnings and the Hess Deal," Andrew Bary writes that Chevron Corporation's stock CVX is down 17% in 2023, but its long-term potential and attractive valuation may provide a 4.5% dividend yield despite asset management challenges.

In "Apple Isn’t Growing. That May Not Be the Biggest Issue for the Stock," Eric J. Savitz says that Apple Inc's AAPL

recent quarterly report revealed a lack of growth with declining revenue and that questions arise about the company's ability to grow compared to other tech giants, which, in turn, could potentially affect Apple's stock valuation.

In "Disney Faces Peltz’s Second Assault," Carleton English writes that, as Walt Disney Co DIS reports Q4 earnings, it faces a renewed activist campaign led by Trian Fund Management, with former Marvel executive Ike Perlmutter supporting Trian's effort to gain seats on Disney's board.
