  • Taking a Look at A Few of the Undervalued Stocks in the Market

  • Investors Should Enlarge their Portfolios

  • Walmart is Set to Report Q3 Fiscal 2015

    A long-term strategy


  • General Motors Reinstated Dividend Payment

    In this article, let´s consider General Motors Company (GM), a $49.36 billion market cap that is the world's second-largest producer of cars and trucks. It has a trailing P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively overvalued (PE 50.9x vs Industry Median 15.8x).

    The company maintains quality and has one of the best designs. Not only cars, it is also a leader in truck models, too. We think that, in the near future when vehicle demand recovers, the firm will be in an excellent position to grow its earnings. Further, the company focuses on four brands instead of eight, making marketing efforts more concentrated and efficient. Efficiency is reflected also in pricing policies, where it developed a pricing model searching for profitability. This means that is operating a demand-pull model where it produces only to meet demand.


  • Target Corp. A Fairly Valued Stock

    In this article, let´s consider Target Corp. (TGT), a $39.84 billion market cap, which has a trailing P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively overvalued (PE 26.3x vs Industry Median 21.7x).

    So in this article, let's take a look at a model that is applicable to stable, mature, dividend-paying firms and try to find the intrinsic value of the stock. Although the model has a number of characteristics that make it useful and appropriate for many applications, it is by no means the be-all and end-all for valuation. The purpose is to force investors to evaluate different assumptions about growth and future prospects.

  • Omega Protein: Can You Swallow the Volatility?

    Omega Protein Corporation (OME) came to my attention through a Peter Lynch screen done at GuruFocus on May 29, 2014. Lynch looked for a major gap between a company’s earnings line (based on 15X earnings) and the stock price, which OME exhibits. The screen also shows an EBITDA 10-year growth rate of 26%, and a P/E ratio of 8.7, other important criteria for this guru.

    All of that points to a candidate fitting the Peter Lynch criteria. But further investigation shows some other issues that could knock this stock out of contention as a Lynch candidate, or at least give investors a bumpy ride.
