Her portfolio is composed of 79 stocks and has a total value of $3,461 Mil and 73.8% of companies she owns come from the Consumer Cyclical Industry. Here I want to highlight the top four stocks that are undervalued based on the DCF model. I am talking about Oracle Corporation (ORCL), NetEase Inc (NTES), Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), Microsoft Corp (MSFT).

The stock is currently trading at P/E (ttm) of 18.40 at very cheap level compared to the Global Software - Infrastructure industry that has an average P/E value of 82.50. Over the last 12 months, the price rose by 7% and is giving a return of 21% to Ms. Ketterer’s portfolio
