Thus, value investors should consider the following stocks, as their earnings yields are more than double the above-listed percentage of return of the risk-free rate investment. These stocks also have price-earnings ratios of

Dear Fellow Shareholder,

Despite economic and political turmoil, equity markets performed well across the board in September of 2013 and over the trailing twelve months. The September gains reversed losses in August and also resulted in positive overall quarterly performance with a number of major indexes moving further into record territory. After disturbing the markets in May and June with comments that they may taper Quantitative Easing (QE), the Fed surprised investors with an announcement that it would not reduce its asset purchases in the near-term. The announcement removed fears that a continued rise in interest rates may stall the

Fortune Brands Home & Security is a stock that dovetails well into trying to identify good companies in the housing rubble and the attention I like pay to spinoffs. FBHS was recently spun out of Fortune Brands and was the smaller division spun out of the larger spirits business. I don’t really think there is one of those narratives about it being an orphan stock or other spinoff goodies, because its just cheap and at a cyclical low. FBHS has 4 divisions that produce goods that are incorporated into home in one degree or another: doors & windows, cabinets, plumbing,
