5 stocks that were rocked in the September quarter that have outstanding recovery potential

A few stocks continued to take it on the chin in the third quarter, even as many other stocks recovered from the previous quarter's pandemic-induced slide.

At the end of every quarter, I go hunting for stocks that have been smashed, and that I think have better things in store. I call the result The Casualty List.

Here are five stocks that were rocked in the September quarter, and that I believe have outstanding recovery potential.


Cigna Corp. (CI), the big health insurer, was down about 10% in the third quarter. After trading above $200 in parts of 2017

These banks grant higher returns than the S&P 500 index

These mid-cap financial services stocks are beating the S&P 500 index in terms of higher dividend yield. The index is granting a yield of 2.03% as of Jan. 28.

As a result, dividend investors may want to consider the following securities.

Chemical Financial Corp. (CHFC) was trading around $44.8 on Monday. For the 52 weeks through Jan. 28, the share price declined 23% and the forward dividend yield increased to 3.2%.

Chemical Financial recorded earnings of $1.01 per share for the fourth quarter of 2018 after the closing bell on Monday. The company beat earnings expectations by 3 cents per

Your goal as a value investor should be to buy cheap stocks you understand. If you understand a business' 'market power' you understand the stock. Cheap means cheaper than peers

NACCO (NC) is spinning off its Hamilton Beach small appliance business this week. NACCO’s remaining business will be a lignite coal miner (NACoal) that operates mostly unconsolidated mines under mostly long-term cost-plus supply contracts. In an earlier article, I explained why this lignite (“brown”) coal-producing business would be inside my “circle of competence” and the Hamilton Beach small appliance business would be outside my “circle of competence.” This led some people to ask: But what if Hamilton Brands trades at a deeper discount to your appraisal value than the post-spinoff NACCO? What if the value is in Hamilton Beach,

A bank with stable market share will grow its deposits at close to the rate of nominal GDP growth. But growth in deposits per branch and deposits per share are what really matter

Someone emailed me this question:

“I own Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Each of them is growing deposits at different rates (off the top of my head, around 5%, 1% and 6% per annum). U.S. deposits have been very consistent at 6% for many, many years. This is probably an incredibly stupid question, but how can deposits continuously grow at such a clip? My initial reaction was that the Fed is printing money at a rate above real GDP growth of around 3.5-4.0%? Are deposits continuously pouring in from overseas? Is that growth rate sustainable

To develop a style, it's often easiest to start by actively copying investors you admire most

Someone emailed me this question:

“Many investors seem to be characterized by a single distinctive style throughout their careers. How can we train to be good at all the following — great-businesses-at-fair-prices-type, special-situation-type, net-net-type — depending on the opportunities that the market presents at any point in time so that we can outperform the market most of the time?”

What you’re describing here are sort of what I’d call “sub-genres” of value investing. Just like there are mystery writers who are best when writing hardboiled stuff and there are mystery writers who are best when writing

Fair value is the price at which a stock's expected future return is the same as the S&P 500's expected future return

Someone who reads my blog emailed me this question:

“How do you value insurance companies? Berkshire, Markel, Progressive...

There are many different ways to do it. E.g. with Berkshire, people like to do e.g. 1) investments plus multiple on earnings 2) pre-tax earnings less insurance plus investment portfolio (haircut or not) 3) book value based on buyback level. There are also float-based methods and so on.”

Honestly, I have always thought the same way about insurance companies, closed-end mutual funds, holding companies, etc. What matters is the annual return you get. That annual return

Management can tell you capital allocation plans; customers tell you whether a company has pricing power

Someone who reads my blog emailed me this question:

“Do you listen (to) or read quarterlies? Do you find the management's spin and guidance helpful or detrimental to your investing?”

I do read earnings call transcripts. Sometimes I find them very useful. When Quan and I were writing the newsletter, Quan would start by collecting all the earnings call transcripts he could find on a company. Then he would take notes on those parts of the transcripts he thought were most important. Quan and I would then discuss his notes on the transcripts.

Yes, earnings call transcripts

No amount of diversification will eliminate market risk; it is better to diversify by country, by market cap size and by interest rate sensitivity than by just holding a ton of stocks

Someone who reads my blog emailed me this question:

“What is the maximum concentration you would employ in any single stock, why, and under what conditions, qualitative and quantitative, would you do so?”

This is a tough question because I’m not sure I want to recommend what I would do as the right practice for others to follow. I am more comfortable holding a smaller number of stocks – and putting more in each stock – than most people are. My ideal is to buy one stock per year and hold each stock for five years. That

Dividends don't matter. Free cash flow matters. And capital allocation matters. Dividend growth is a good sign of underlying free cash flow growth. So dividend growers are often good stocks.

Someone who reads my blog emailed me this question:

“What is your take on a Dividend Growth strategy? Buying large cap businesses with a decent initial yield and a track record of dividend growth.

It's seems very attractive to me to own a portfolio of large, safe US based companies that have solid dividend growth prospects.

If an investor is patient and chooses his portfolio carefully, they may be able to get 10% "yield on cost" after only 10 years. That seems like a powerful investing position to be in. And the "yield on cost" number gets insane after

Think of a company's return on retained earnings as its 'cost of growth.' Use the unleveraged return on net tangible assets as a proxy for the return on retained earnings

Someone who reads my blog emailed me this question:

“I'd love to hear how you think about return on invested capital. It seems every investor has their own definition.

How do you calculate it, what do you consider bad, average, good, exceptional, etc.?”

I use the pre-tax return on net tangible assets. When I’m looking at a non-financial company, I remove cash and other securities from total assets. I also remove intangibles such as goodwill and other intangible assets. The number that is important to me isn’t the return on net tangible assets. It’s the flipped

The best stocks to buy and hold are those that pay out dividends and buy back stock while still growing their earnings

Someone who uses ValueLine asked me this question:

“I understand that the ‘Line’ on Value Line reports is essentially a regression to the mean valuation. If we assume that the market is rational when averaged over time, the line is a reasonable valuation. This leads to an interesting result. If these are the average values investors are buying at over time, doesn’t that mean there is a huge premium put on the stability/dividend of (stock like) Nestle (XSWX:NESN)?”

You’re right that what ValueLine is doing is betting on a regression to the historical mean. It’s saying that you should buy

Studying 3 decades of results can give you greater confidence the company's future will be like its long-term past

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) has talked about how he has sometimes read a stock’s annual report year after year – like IBM (IBM) for sure and Coca-Cola (KO) I’d assume – and then suddenly something clicks, and he sees the stock differently.

It just becomes clear to him in a way it wasn’t before. The investment case becomes clear. What we are talking about here is “finding the right frame.” This is often the biggest part of any kind of problem solving. It’s easy to start brute forcing something – plugging in numbers and

There is a big difference between a 'dead money' stock and a 'melting ice cube.' You can afford to stay invested in a profitable business with a stagnant stock price

Sometimes stocks don’t move much.

I own a stock called George Risk Industries (RSKIA). I’ve owned it for – I think – a little over six years now. It’s done fine. It was more expensive at one point than it is now. But there has never been a catalyst with this stock. It has earned about what I expected it to earn each year. It’s paid a good dividend yield of 4% or 5% a year. And any earnings beyond that have just piled up in cash.

At the time I bought the stock, I think it was trading around

Yesterday, I talked about thinking in alternatives. My basic point was that you want to compare your best idea – whether it is your favorite stock already in your portfolio your favorite potential investment – to any new stock idea you have. I went on to talk about how to compare a new idea to a stock in your portfolio. Today, I’ll tackle a related subject. What to do when you have two new ideas? Which should you follow up on first? How do you decide which lead to pursue? For me, the first question is often: Is this stock

Aswath Damodaran is a professor of finance at NYU Stern. He is the author of several widely used academic and practitioner texts on valuation, corporate finance and investment management and is regarded as an authority on the subject of valuation. He has also written books about investing, notably "Investment Philosophies" and "Investment Fables." In Chapter 2 of "Investment Fables: Exposing the Myths of 'Can't Miss' Investment Strategies," he questioned the conventional wisdom of selecting stocks solely on high dividend yield. He say that dividends, unlike coupons on bonds, are not promised cash flows. A dividend that is too high, relative
