H&R Block Inc tops the list

One strategy to unearth value opportunities is to screen the market for stocks with an enticing forward price-earnings ratio.

Investors may want to consider the following three stocks, as they have a forward price-earnings ratio that stands below the S&P 500 index's historical average of 15. Estimates of future earnings are based on data from Morningstar analysts.

H&R Block Inc

The first stock that meets the criteria is H&R Block Inc (HRB), a Kansas City, Missouri-based provider of assisted income tax return, do-it-yourself tax and virtual tax preparation services to the general public in North America and Australia.

Their businesses generate excess returns and are expected to improve their profitability

If you want to increase your likelihood of generating large returns, then looking for reasonably priced stocks of companies that have good financial conditions and are expected to grow their net earnings per share is a strong start.

I, therefore, looked for stocks which are trading below or close to the Peter Lynch earnings line and have a return on invested capital that surpasses the weighted average cost of capital, indicating the generation of excess returns. Yielding more than what it costs to raise the necessary funds is typical of a company with a solid and well-structured balance sheet.

Thus,

The company is also a leading provider of “do-it-yourself” (DIY) tax preparation software and has begun offering customers a variety of hybrid DIY/assisted options.

'Every once in a while a business with a secret sauce for enduring outsize profits emerges'

As Mohnish Pabrai (Trades, Portfolio) continued to explain his approach to investing, he covered the topics of distressed businesses, preferably in distressed industries, as well as businesses with strong moatd. He called his approach “Dhandho investing,” which refers to finding low-risk, high-return opportunities. Or as he frequently said, “Heads I win; tails I don’t lose much.”

It’s also in his book, “The Dhandho Investor: The Low-Risk Value Method to High Returns,” published in 2007.

Pabrai led into the "distressed businesses in distressed industries" chapter by going after the proponents of Efficient Market Theory (EMT),

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham Valuation Model, I've selected the five undervalued companies trading closest to their 52 week low. Each of these companies has been determined to be suitable for the Defensive Investor according to the ModernGraham approach.

Defensive Investors are defined as investors who need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk.

While I don’t consider equities anywhere near cheap, the volatility is making things fun again

While I don’t consider equities anywhere near cheap, the volatility is making things fun again.

I tend to spend most of my time on bottom-up analysis and valuation, but Old School Value online makes it easier to take a top-down approach to narrow down sectors and areas that are either most undervalued or showing the most promise.

The past few months, a common theme I’m seeing is that consumer discretionary, financials, retail and health care are dominating a lot of screens and watchlists I have set up.

How to get to Warren Buffett’s prized metric, the annual compounding rate of return

What was Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) thinking when he made major investments in the Gannett Co. (GCI) and Freddie Mac? What process led him to conclude that these companies were good buys with robust long-term potential?

In the lengthy chapter 19 of “The New Buffettology,” authors Mary Buffett and David Clark offered four case studies to explain how he approached these buying opportunities. Two of the case studies, H&R Block (HRB) and La-Z-Boy (LZB), were covered in an earlier chapter; in this chapter, Gannett and Freddie Mac are covered.

How Warren Buffett thought his way through two important stock buys

So far, the authors of “The New Buffettology” have provided useful information about Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)'s approach to investing. In chapter 19, which is essentially the final chapter, they pull all the bits and pieces into a whole, through case studies. In this article, we review the first two cases, and in a subsequent article the second pair.

H&R Block (HRB) is the subject of the first case study. Like the others, Buffett had made his decisions just a few years before this book was published in 2002. He first became aware of

How does Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) whittle down a list of potential stocks? He starts by screening the entire universe for those that have not just a competitive advantage, but a durable competitive advantage.

In chapter 18 of “The New Buffettology,” authors Mary Buffett and David Clark take us through the financial metrics that allow him to whittle down those stocks to a manageable few. An earlier article covered the first three metrics or, as the authors call them, “financial equations”:

  • Earnings.
