These businesses are still poised for growth

If you are looking for potential value opportunities amid U.S.-listed equities, picking stocks that meet the following three criteria represent a solid starting point, in my opinion:

  • The share prices are trading near or below their historical median valuations, which suggests that the stock is not excessively overvalued
  • The return on invested capital surpasses the weighted average cost of capital, which suggests the company is creating value for its shareholders
  • The stock has received optimistic recommendation ratings from sell-side analysts on Wall Street

Thus, investors may be interested in the following three stocks, as they meet the above

The highly travelable product should provide the company with a considerable growth runway where incremental capital can be deployed to compound shareholder value

As mentioned in our past article, "travel-ability" varies a lot across consumer products. See's Candies and Coca Cola (KO) delivered totally different compounding potentials for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B). The latter widely spread its brand image worldwide, while the West Coast candy company found itself even struggling to travel across the country.

The rationale behind is a complex one, depending on a variety of factors. Meanwhile, a low "travel-ability" by no means prevents the business from generating superior cash return or profitability for owners (See's is a good example). However, the highly travelable product should provide the company with

A simple metric to uncover the horsepower of compounders

"Leaving the question of price aside, the best business to own is one that over an extended period can employ large amounts of incremental capital at very high rates of return. The worst business to own is one that must, or will, do the opposite. That is, consistently employ ever-greater amounts of capital at very low rates of return."

- Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)

Consistently superior return on capital is a strong indicator of a durable competitive advantage and sustainable value creation. Nonetheless, an attractive return itself would not make the business

The company has the right management and business model in the right space, but needs to widen its economic moat

UK-based Fever-Tree Drinks (LSE:FEVR) develops and supplies premium mixer drinks, including tonics, ginger ale, ginger beer, bitter lemon, lemonades, spring soda water and premium cola. The brand started in 2005 with the mission to "combine the highest quality naturally sourced ingredients with expert manufacturing techniques to produce an unrivaled drinks experience." The company's co-founders Charles Rolls and Tim Warrillow were both working in the drinks industry and were struck by the fact that consumers were paying up for quality spirits but were left with no premium option when it came to the mixer.

Strong balance sheets are a must-have, and brand names and other assets help

Since U.S. markets peaked on Feb. 19, the S&P 500 has slid approximately 30% as of March 19. Investors are increasingly looking beyond the short-term effects of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) itself and seeing that shutdowns in businesses and factories are going to significantly impact both supply and demand, a double-hit that the country hasn’t seen since the Great Depression.

Despite the stock market bloodbath, however, U.S. markets have finally entered profitable territory after nearly five years of being overvalued. According to the “Buffett Indicator,” which is called as such because it is Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s

Yield chasers are missing the point of investing in stocks

At Urbem, we have observed the increasing popularity of high-yield stocks and so-called “income” funds among investors, particularly among the retail sector. For various reasons, it is our belief that these yield chasers, who focus only on dividends and stock price appreciation, are missing the whole point of investing in stocks.

Unique advantage of stocks

Unlike other asset classes, stocks can compound in value “internally.” To achieve this, companies retain a portion of profits to reinvest in the business at a reasonable rate of return, assuming that such a secular growth opportunity (e.g. regional expansion, new products, etc.) exists. By

Lam Research tops the list

Benjamin Graham, a pioneer of value investing, suggested to use certain financial strength criteria when looking for stocks. In order to increase the chances of finding quality companies, the search should be focused on stocks that have the following characteristics:

  1. A current ratio of more than 2.
  2. A working capital that exceeds the long-term debt.

The current ratio tells whether the balance sheet provides the company with sufficient margins to satisfy its short-term creditors. It is calculated using total current assets divided by total current liabilities.

A working capital that exceeds long-term debt shows that the balance sheet
