Despite the recent price drop and stagnating business, investors should not lose hope in this high-dividend tobacco company

Shares of tobacco giant Altria Group, Inc. (MO) sufferred a 16% price drop before recovering somewhat. They are now down a net of 2.4% since the last time I looked at the company this past August, which may cause investors to lose confidence in the stock.

However, the stock continues to offer a very high dividend yield that appears well covered. Altria is a Dividend King, one of just a handful of stocks in the entire market that has raised its dividend for at least 50 consecutive years. A dividend growth streak of this length means that the company

Discussion of markets and holdings

The [url=]IVA International Fund[/url] ([url=]Trades[/url], [url=]Portfolio[/url]) Class A (NAV) ended the quarter on September 30, 2020 with a return of 2.38% versus the MSCI All Country World Index (ex-U.S.) (Net) ("Index") return of 6.25% for the same period.

The brisk market rebound which began in April continued into the third quarter. By the end of August, markets were again reaching record highs fueled by mostly favorable data throughout the summer months. The rally seemed unstoppable spurred by better than expected employment results, expectations that rates would remain lower for even longer, and encouraging prospects for an effective vaccine. Come September,

Guru stock highlight

Another name we bought this quarter was Heineken (XAMS:HEIA), the number two global beer company. While we still own Anheuser-Busch InBev (XBRU:ABI), we partially trimmed our position as the share price bounced back vigorously. In our opinion, Heineken offers a larger discount and less downside risk, especially as it is a lot less levered financially than ABI. The company is family owned, maintains a long-term oriented culture and has a good record of capital allocation. It lagged ABI on the rebound due to more on-trade consumption, which was negatively affected by the pandemic lockdowns in the U.S. and Europe.

We sold LafargeHolcim (XSWX:LHN) to opportunistically fund a position in Anheuser-Busch Inbev (BUD) (ABI). ABI is the world's largest brewer and its global 27% market share is more than twice the volume of the #2 player. Importantly, its dominant market share positions, strong brands and vertical integration allow it to generate industry-leading margins, returns and cash flows. ABI's significant scale advantage enables it to earn more than 4x the profitability of the #2 player. The majority of the company's profitability is derived from developing markets where duopoly market structures, growing per capita income and premiumization drive attractive growth and

The company trades with a single-digit price-earnings ratio and offers an 8% dividend yield

Shares of Altria Group Inc. (MO) have decreased nearly 15% year to date while the S&P 500 has climbed more than 4%. The stock trades with a single-digit price-earnings ratio, well off of its long-term average. Shares also pay an 8% dividend yield. Is now the right time to buy Altria?

The brewer has had a rough ride over the past year, but its huge portfolio of leading brands is a major competitive advantage

Anheuser-Busch InBev SA (BUD) is the world’s largest brewer. The company produces, markets and sells over 500 different beer brands. Of its products, 17 generate more than $1 billion in annual sales each. These include Budweiser, Stellar Artois, Corona and many other iconic labels.

The S&P 500 is expensive again, but there is still value to be found

It can be difficult for investors to find undervalued stock with the S&P 500 trading at a price-earnings multiple near 23. For income investors, finding stocks with generous yields is also becoming tricky.

In this article, we will look at five high-yielding stocks that trade at a lower valuation than the S&P 500.

AbbVie Inc.

AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) was spun off from Abbot Laboratories (ABT) in 2013. The company’s Humira was the best-selling drug in the world for quite some time. Humira has lost patent protection in the European Union already and will do the same in the U.S. in

They could represent value opportunities

When investors screen the market for stocks whose market capitalization exceeds $10 billion and whose price-book ratio stands below 1.5, they could have a higher chance of discovering value stocks, in my opinion.

Thus, value investors may want to consider the following securities, as they meet the above-listed criteria.

Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV

The first company under consideration is Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (BUD).

Shares of the Belgian brewer were trading at $40.90 per unit at close on May 22 for a market capitalization of $80.41 billion and a price-book ratio of 1.07.

Market overview

The emergence and spread of the COVID-19 virus have precipitated an extraordinary effort to contain the outbreak globally. While these initiatives are of utmost importance in defeating the virus’ spread, they have also resulted in significant economic deterioration, including the closure of businesses, a rise in furlough or unemployment, and have fueled steep declines in risky assets around the world.

Authorities have acted quickly to support the economy through unprecedented monetary and fiscal stimulus, and investor sentiment has whipsawed ever since in the tug-of-war between the positive impact of the stimulus versus the continued suppression of economic demand.

The future looks much better than the last two years, but investors are fearful

Investment thesis

Investors, at times, presume that every stock owned and embraced by top gurus will likely outperform the broad market each year. This could turn out to be a costly mistake, and the Kraft Heinz Co. (KHC) is a classic example. According to company filings, Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)(BRK.B) owns 26.69% of Kraft Heinz’s outstanding shares and is the top investor of the company. The share price, on the other hand, has declined 50% over the last 12 months, and the total return, which takes dividends into account, is a
