Investing Philosophy

The Contrarian and the value guru, Dreman's investment philosophy is based on low P/E approach to stock selection. The philosophy at Dreman Value Management: "We invest in undervalued companies that exhibit strong fundamentals, above-market dividend yields and historic earnings growth, which our analysis indicates will persist. Our strategy is to own strong, fundamentally sound companies and to avoid speculative stocks or potential bankruptcies." They believe that the markets are not perfectly efficient, and that behavioral psychology influences investor actions and reactions.

Stock Market Valuation: September 1, 2011
I started this monthly market valuation series in December 2009. The motivation for the article was to debunk the pundits stating that the market was overvalued because PE TTM was 87. This was ridiculous because earnings were deflated by the worst economic crisis since the great depression. However, the question was how to value the market from a purely quantitative methodology; while ignoring all the outside noise and macro predictions of where the economy is headed. I looked for several different metrics to evaluate the market which over time have proven to be effective and decided to look at all the metrics, instead of just focusing on the last 12 months of earnings.

I Believe AstraZeneca Is Fairly Valued
AstraZeneca PLC (AZN), a $94.71 billion market cap company is a giant in the drug industry and has a trailing P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively undervalued (22.7x vs 41.8x of industry mean). So in this article, let's take a look at a model which is applicable to stable, mature, dividend-paying firms and try to find the intrinsic value of the stock.
