If you want to increase your chances of beating the market, one method is to select stocks that rank highly in regard to "magic formula" criteria.

About the Magic Formula

Created by Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio), a prominent value investor and author of "The Little Book That Still Beats the Market," the magic formula ranks stocks based on a specific set of technical criteria. The book also provides a description of these criteria, highlighting the earnings yield and the return on capital as the two

A look at the media company's 1st-quarter financial results

Fox Corp. (FOX)(FOXA), which was formed in early 2018 following The Walt Disney Co.'s (DIS) acquisition of the majority of the assets owned by 21st Century Fox, reported results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 on Tuesday. Revenue increased 2% to $2.72 billion, with 10% growth in affiliate fees offset by mid-single-digit declines in advertising and other revenue (primarily due to the absence of sports sub-licensing revenue). This led to a 36% increase in adjusted Ebitda to $1.17 billion as well as a 42% increase in adjusted earnings per share (but as I'll explain shortly, the outsized growth in

A portfolio composed of stocks held by other managers I esteem

Major League Baseball punished the Houston Astros for the way they stole opponents' signs. But there's no penalty for an investment manager stealing ideas from another manager.

In fact, I think one would be foolish not to.

I peek from time to time at the holdings of other managers I respect. In this column, once a year I present my Purloined Portfolio, composed of stocks held by other managers I esteem.

Today's Purloined Portfolio is the 17th one I've compiled, beginning in 2000. The average one-year return for the first 16 outings has been 12.0%, compared to 10.1% for the

They outperform the yield on 20-year high quality market corporate bonds

Selecting stocks whose earnings return is more than twice the average of 20-year high-quality corporate bonds enhances the chances to find high-yield investments, in my opinion. This category of investment grade bonds represents corporate loans that triple-A, double-A and single-A rated companies have taken out with their lenders.

Since 20-year high-quality corporate bonds grant a monthly spot rate of 3.18% (as of June 2020) to their holders, the following three stocks may hold value, as they grant earnings returns of more than 6.36% at price-earnings ratios of less than 15.72.

Putting together my investment thesis on The Walt Disney Company

This is the final article in my series about The Walt Disney Company (DIS). Throughout this process, I’ve taken a detailed look at each of the company’s business segments. However, in order to truly appreciate what makes Disney unique, it’s critical to focus on the bigger picture as well.

The advantages that are created when the individual business segments come together as one was summarized by former CEO Bob Iger in early 2019, when he was asked by Barron’s about some of the acquisitions that had proved so critical to the company’s success. This was his response:

A look at the company's third quarter results

Fox Corporation (FOX), which was formed a year ago following The Walt Disney Company’s (DIS) acquisition of the majority of the assets owned by 21st Century Fox, recently reported results for its third quarter of fiscal 2020. For the quarter, revenues increased by 25% to $3.44 billion, largely due to the fact that Fox broadcasted Super Bowl 54. Adjusted for the big game, which added roughly $600 million in to the top-line, revenues increased by low-single digits in the quarter.

Growth in the quarter (excluding the impact of Super Bowl 54) was driven by affiliate fees,

Guru stock highlight

Fox’s (FOX)(FOXA) shares declined during the quarter as traditional media stocks struggled, in part due to near-term challenges in advertising. With most of the economy shut, there isn’t a compelling reason to air commercials on television. Fox’s main contributor to cash flow, Fox News, has produced strong viewership through the crisis and the company has one of the strongest balance sheets in the traditional media space, in part due to significant tax assets created as part of the Disney transaction, which closed in 2019.

ViacomCBS: a tough time to entertain

An aggressive strategy

In time of crisis, stock investors often fly to defensive stocks. These are companies that will do relatively well during a downturn.

However, using a defensive strategy now is like looking at your rearview window and using that view to decide where to turn next. It would be a great strategy if you executed it prior to the stock market's downturn, or at the very early stages of the crisis. However, it is a little late now because stocks have become more expensive again.

To take advantage of the crisis situation and recovery, I believe investors
