Eagle and Beagle

Don Mecoy: Eagle and Beagle

Another example is this week's beagle, Tulsa-based Matrix Service Co., which slipped 6.9 percent last week to close Friday at $10.93.

Two weeks ago, Matrix also found itself as the worst-performing state-based stock. But in between these two sour weeks, MTRX shares gained a healthy 11.8 percent.

That earlier dip also came amid fairly strong trading, which is more reflective of a possible trend developing. That was not the case over the past five trading days.

The upshot is that Matrix is valued about where it was at the beginning of the summer, although off its springtime highs. Stick to the fundamentals with this firm, which provides construction and maintenance services mainly to the energy industry.
