A look at how the increases will affect valuations

Dividend growth investors always look forward to the announcement of a dividend increase. These investors like being paid to hold shares of companies. We will discuss three companies that recently raised dividends and whether or not they are offering good value at the moment.

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CM) can trace its roots all the way back to 1867. The bank is one of the largest financial institutions in Canada today. Canadian Imperial was formed in 1961 through a merger of Canadian Bank of Commerce and the Imperial Bank of Canada. The bank has

Investors should take time to understand the cost structure of the business that they are interested in

In general, high operational gearing is a double-edged sword for owners. High operational gearing occurs when fixed costs (which have to be paid regardless of the level of sales) make up a high proportion of total costs, which results in high sensitivity of operating profit to revenue.

On the one hand, high operational gearing enables the company to grow its bottom-line fairly quickly (when things go well). But on the other hand, it increases business risk, making it more difficult for management and investors to forecast future earnings.

We at Urbem think that a highly operationally geared business can

Our thoughts on market valuation and how gurus perceive it

Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) may not have been buying a lot of the dip so far this year, contrary to many people’s expectations that the Oracle of Omaha would be pouring the conglomerate's massive pile of cash into equities.

According to the company’s vice chairman, Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio) the $460 billion conglomerate aims to get through the economic typhoon “safe for people who have 90% of their net worth invested in it.” The value investing guru also thinks that the company will “emerge on the other side very strong,” as it acts “fairly conservatively.”

The guru shared his thoughts on consistent focus, low yield and investment risk

For those panicking through the recent market turmoil, we find that a revisit to Warren Buffett’s 2008 shareholder letter can provide some solace. The S&P 500 has lost 37% of its value year to date, making it the worst year for the index since Buffett took over Berkshire.


Acknowledging that nobody can predict the winning and losing years in advance, Buffett stressed that investors have consistent focuses, regardless of market conditions:

“(1) Maintaining Berkshire’s Gibraltar-like financial position, which features huge amounts of excess liquidity, near-term obligations that are modest, and dozens of sources of earnings and cash;

Avoiding markets altogether during a downturn can deliver attractive returns in the long term

Over the last couple of weeks, I have outlined why investors should act on this opportunity and buy stocks at bargain prices. Successful investors, including Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio), Peter Lynch and Seth Klarman (Trades, Portfolio), have backed this strategy.

Not many investors, though, would be able to pluck up enough courage to go against the grain during a bloodbath in global capital markets. Also, some investors might have cash constraints which would limit their ability to capitalize on falling stock prices. For both these types of investors,

In this domain, we have to sift through the economic moat carefully and apply a pick-and-shovel strategy where necessary

We believe that digitalization will be playing an increasingly significant role in our economy as businesses, consumers and public sectors keep seeking automation and efficiency. The megatrend can generate a long-lasting tailwind, along with enormous business opportunities, for the right companies.

However, as always, we are far from being convinced that a booming space would make stock picking any easier. On the contrary, considering the never-ending fierce competition in the technology world, we have to pay particular attention to business quality in terms of the durability of any competitive advantage and apply a pick-and-shovel strategy where necessary.

A quantitative ranking and backtesting model

A program-driven quantitative model can assist investors with two things that it can do more efficiently than humans – to screen for stock ideas and to backtest a strategy. This is why we, as quality-centric investors, developed our proprietary model to assess and quantify the business quality of individual stocks. Each stock is assigned a rank called the “Urbem Quality Score.” The higher the score, the better the quality. Additionally, we hope to prove alpha generation out of our quality investing strategy through backtesting.

Using tools like Portfolio123, we built the algorithm to generate Urbem Quality Scores mainly based on
