••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Charles Schwab Corp

David Rolfe on Charles Schwab Corp. - Mar 14, 2014

Charles Schwab was our largest relative contributor to performance. The stock gained +82% in 2013 – after a gain of 30% in 2012. We trimmed the position throughout the year and fully exited the position at the end of October. Our sale rationale is quite succinct. Schwab remains a best-in-class business, but the stock, in our view, had become less than best in class (read: overvalued)....



For instance, we liquidated our stakes in Charles Schwab during the fourth quarter, as we believe several years of Schwab’s future earnings power were sufficiently recognized by Mr. Market in current prices. While the Company has continued to grow and take profitability share via its superb low-cost, internet-based platform, our analysis of the stock’s valuation suggests that the implied earnings power of the business is not only taking current business momentum into account, but also giving shareholders ample credit for higher short-­term interest rates, even though short-­term rates are currently anchored near zero. Admittedly, valuation is somewhat of a blunt tool, given the wide array of future assumptions, however, we believe that valuation becomes clarified and much sharper too as time passes.

Baron Funds Comments on The Charles Schwab Corp - Feb 20, 2014

Shares of The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW) benefitted from favor able capital markets conditions. During the quarter, long-term interest rates moved higher in response to the Federal Reserve's tapering pronouncements. Schwab benefits from higher rates in several ways. The most significant is the potential for Schwab to reduce the fee waivers on its money market funds in a more normalized rate environment. This means Schwab would start recognizing highly profitable management fees on its money market funds, rather than rebating those fees back to shareholders. Schwab also benefitted from the rise in equity markets. Rising valuations of equity mutual funds result in higher management fees to Schwab.

Dodge & Cox Comments on Charles Schwab - Aug 23, 2013

In 2010, the Fund initiated a position in Charles Schwab (SCHW) (a leading U.S. brokerage company) due to its durable business franchise, strong market position, growth prospects, and attractive valuation. As a result of the low interest rate environment in the United States, Schwab had waived some of the fees it charged customers on money market funds and its net interest margins substantially compressed. We believed that the company's revenues and earnings would be significantly higher in a more normal interest rate environment. However, starting in late 2010, the Fed announced additional rounds of quantitative easing and interest rates continued to drop.

Throughout 2011 and 2012, we reaffirmed our investment thesis with the belief that a return to a more normal rate environment could dramatically increase profitability. Through our meetings with management, we were able to assess the company's investment merits and risks, all in the context of valuation. Schwab's highly scalable business model, excellent market position, growing customer base, focused corporate culture, and capable management team were attractive to us. In addition, founder and Chairman Charles Schwab's ownership stake aligned his interests with those of public investors. These factors remain the underpinnings of our current investment thesis.

After considering the regulatory, interest rate, and credit risks inherent in Schwab's business model, we added to the Fund's position in Schwab multiple times throughout 2011 and 2012. The company stands to benefit from a rise in short-term interest rates. Accordingly, investors have responded to the Fed's recent announcement and Schwab's stock price is up 49% year to date. Schwab is a 2.4% position in the Fund.

Baron Funds Comments on Charles Schwab Corp - Aug 02, 2013

The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW), the well-known brokerage firm, benefited from rising equity markets and increased interest rates. Rising equity markets resulted in higher assets under management, on which Schwab earns fees. Higher interest rates benefited the company in several ways, including less need for Schwab to waive management fees on clients' money market funds. These increased sources of revenues carry especially high incremental profit margins. In addition, client trading activity increased, as retail investors continued to re-engage with the stock market.

David Rolfe of Wedgewood Partners Comments on Charles Schwab - Jan 29, 2013

We think Charles Schwab (SCHW) continues to exhibit a low cost advantage relative to competitors in the financial services industry, with non-interest expenses as a percentage of total client assets of 0.19%, as of the first three quarters of 2012, according to management. This has led to pre-tax profit margins in excess of 30%, which is a multiple of some of the most well established wealth management platforms in the world. We think that this abnormally low expense rate emanates from Schwab's focus on leveraging its information technology infrastructure. In contrast, we think too many of Schwab's rivals rely on more expensive and less efficient human capital to gather assets. The stock continues to trade at a historically low price to book ratio, though that is somewhat offset by a higher forward price to earnings ratio. We think both valuation metrics are somewhat misleading in this historically low interest rate environment and in the event of a rising interest rates, the Company's earnings would likely expand at a very rapid rate, primarily due to money market fund fee waiver relief. So we continue to believe Charles Schwab represents an excellent balance between business quality and valuation.

Baron Funds Comments on Charles Schwab - May 24, 2012

From Baron Funds first quarter letter: Shares of The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW), an online broker, gained 28.2%.After a rough 2011, Schwab is up strongly as investors start to price in the possibility that interest rates may rise sooner than 2014 as promised by the Federal Reserve. Rising rates should help raise Schwab's net interest margin, reduce fee waivers and boost earnings power.We like Schwab because of its best-in-class platform and its effort to move investors' assets into higherfee, longer-duration active management.

The Company provides financial services to individuals and institutional clients through two segments - Investor Services and Institutional Services. The Investor Services segment provides retail brokerage and banking services to individual investors. The Institutional Services segment provides custodial, trading, and support services to independent investment advisors. The Institutional Services segment also provides retirement plan services, specialty brokerage services, and mutual fund clearing services, and supports the availability of Schwab proprietary mutual funds and collective trust funds on third-party platforms. Banking revenues and expenses are allocated to the Company's two segments based on which segment services the client. The Company evaluates the performance of its segments on a pre-tax basis, excluding items such as impairment charges on non-financial assets, discontinued operations, extraordinary items, and significant restructuring and other charges. On September 1, 2011, the Company completed its acquisition of all of the outstanding common shares of optionsXpress Holdings, Inc.
