Wall Street Suggests These 3-High Earnings Yield Stocks

Telefonica SA tops the list

June 03, 2019 | About:

Screening for companies that are more than doubling 20-year high-quality corporate bonds' earnings yields raises the possibility of achieving impressive margins.

These bonds represent corporate loans issued by companies that are triple-A, double-A and single-A rated. The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis showed that the monthly average spot rate of the 20-year bonds is 4.26%.

Thus, the following large caps have an earnings yield of more than 8.5% or a price-earnings ratio of less than 11.74 as of May 31.

These stocks are cheap according to the Peter Lynch chart. They have strong financial conditions and run a profitable business that will likely stay so.

What’s more? Wall Street issued a recommendation rating of overweight to buy. The overweight recommendation rating means that the stock is predicted to outperform either the industry or the entire market.

Telefonica SA (NYSE:TEF) traded around $7.93 per share at close on Friday for a market capitalization of $41.48 billion. The Spanish telecommunication services company has an earnings yield of 8.9% versus the industry median of 5.2% or a price-earnings ratio of 11.22 versus the industry median of 19.33.

Also, the price-book ratio is 1.89 versus the industry median of 2.07, and the price-sales ratio is 0.76 compared to the industry median of 1.5.

The share price declined 6.3% so far this year. The share price at close Friday was 3% off the 52-week low of $7.70 and 15.3% below the 52-week high of $9.14.

The stock seems to be priced fairly, according to the below Peter Lynch chart.

If somebody asks what being a value investor means, Alberto Abaterusso would answer, “The value investor is not just the possessor of the security that represents the company, but he is the owner of that company. As an owner of the company the value investor is actively involved in the dynamics of that company and his first concern is how to have sales progressively growing. Also, the value investor is probably one of the most demanding persons in the world concerning sales.”
