A Trio of High Earnings Return Stocks for the Value Investor

They currently beat the 20-year high quality market corporate bonds

June 08, 2020 | About:

In order to unearth value opportunities, investors may find it helpful to look for stocks whose earnings returns have significantly outperformed the monthly sport rate (3.26% as of June 8) that the 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds offer to their holders. These investment-grade bonds have been issued by companies that have high credit ratings, implying an extremely low investment risk for both bondholders and shareholders.
