    The paint and coating producer and retailer is up about 8 percent in the past year, just slightly behind the return of the S&P 500.

    Action to take: Shares look like a reasonable value here, particularly as a long-term holding. Sherwin Williams pays a 1 percent dividend yield at current prices, and the company has a history of increasing its payout over time.

    For traders, shares have gotten oversold in the short-term, and look ready to trend higher. The January $250 calls, last going for about $7.65, could see mid-double-digit returns on a year end rally.
