Value Screeners Identify Opportunities for March

A look at value screener records as US government approves new stimulus plan

On Monday, a day where stock markets surged on the heels of new Covid-19 stimulus plan approval, GuruFocus' value screeners identified a wide range of investing opportunities across the globe.

GuruFocus' value screeners, a Premium feature, selects stocks that meet investing criteria from strategies based on value legends like Benjamin Graham, Peter Lynch and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) co-managers Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) and Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio).

Dow breaks above 32,000 on stimulus bill advancements, yet Nasdaq falls on tech selloff

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 31,802.44, up 306.14 points from last Friday's close of 31,496.30 despite setting a new-record intraday high of 32,148 earlier in the day.

Stocks surged as investors cheered Senate approval of a $1.9 trillion stimulus bill. CNBC added that the Democrat-led House aims to pass the bill later this week and send it to President Joe Biden for his signature. Despite this, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index sank over 2% led by declines in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA).

GuruFocus' Undervalued-Predictable and Buffett-Munger Screens identify opportunities

With stocks at record highs, the U.S. stock market is overvalued based on Buffett's market indicator. The ratio of total market cap to the sum of gross domestic product and Federal Reserve Bank assets stands at 139.6%, implying a return of -0.8% per year assuming a reversion to a 20-year mean market valuation level.

As such, investors may find opportunities in stocks meeting criteria for GuruFocus' Undervalued-Predictable Screener and Buffett-Munger Screener. According to the Model Portfolios page, the Buffett-Munger model portfolio has returned an annualized 14.66% per year over the past three years, outperforming the Standard & Poor's 500 index benchmark return of an annualized 11.84% over the same period.
