3 High Earnings Return Stocks for Value Investors

Their yields beat the 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds

July 01, 2020 | About:

If you look for stocks that more than double the earnings return the 20-year high quality market corporate bonds are offering to their holders, you could significantly increase your chances of finding value opportunities. The monthly yield on these bonds is 3.34% as of May. The bonds represent corporate loans issued by triple-A, double-A and single-A-rated companies.

Thus, value investors may want to have a look at the following stocks as they grant earnings returns exceeding 6.68% (twice the monthly return on the corporate bonds) and, therefore, have price-earnings ratios below 14.97.

Enterprise Products Partners

Shares of Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE:EPD) were trading at a price of $18.17 each at close on Tuesday for a market capitalization of $39.72 billion.

The Houston-based oil and gas midstream operator grants an earnings return of 11.7% and has a price-earnings ratio of 8.57.

The share price has fallen by 37.7% over the past year for a 52-week range of $10.27 to $30.87.

GuruFocus assigned a moderate rating of 4 out of 10 to the company's financial strength and a very good rating of 7 out of 10 to its profitability.

For Wall Street sell-side analysts. Enterprise Products Partners is a buy with an average target price of $24.65 per share.

International Business Machines

Shares of International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) were trading at a price of $120.77 each at close on Tuesday for a market capitalization of $107.23 billion.
