The stock is down more than 12%

Shares of online pet pharmacy retailer PetMed Express Inc. (PETS) plunged more than 12% on Tuesday following the release of its third-quarter results. The Delray Beach, Florida-based company announced its earnings for the period ended Dec. 31 missed Wall Street's expectations.

The company has now lost more than 25% in market value since hitting a 52-week high of $41.83 on July 16. PetMed still looks relatively overvalued at a trailing price-earnings ratio of about 20.26 compared to the Peter Lynch fair value of 15.

In the past two months, big stocks have been walloped, but small stocks have been beaten up worse

In the past two months, big stocks have been walloped, but small stocks have been beaten up worse.

Large stocks (measured by the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index) are down about 17% from their high on Feb. 19, taking dividends into account. Small stocks (measured by the Russell 2000 Index) have fallen approximately 26%.

It’s no secret that small stocks are more volatile than their big brethren. But sometimes, volatility can be a buyer’s friend. For bargain hunters, I think there are some undiscovered gems among the small companies. Here are four that appeal to me.

Even with high percentages in cash, Nintai portfolios held their own against the major indexes

To Our Readers:

Each year we try provide GuruFocus members with an overview of Nintai Investment’s composite portfolio performance for the previous year. Being a professional investment manager, we try to limit the amount of detail provided. Our performance was quite good considering portfolios ranged from 15% to 30% cash.

Fourth-quarter 2019 and annual returns

The fourth quarter of 2019 as well as the total returns for calendar year 2019 reflect U.S. markets hitting on all cylinders. Overall we remain pleased with the short-term (fourth quarter alone) as well as long-term performance (returns since July 2018). Our 2019 performance modestly

A look back at the final quarter of the year

Karsan Value Funds (KVF) is a value-oriented fund, as described here. Due to securities regulations, the fund is not open to the public at this time. Should that change in the future, there will be an announcement on this site.

For the fourth quarter ended December 31st, 2019, KVF gained $1.18 per share, increasing the value of each share to $27.57. This is a good result on an absolute basis. On a relative basis, this 4% pre-tax return (after subtracting currency gains of $0.27 in the period) under-performed the 8% and 10% returns of the S&P 500 Russell 2000

A review of Nintai Investments' performance and thoughts on the markets

The past six months have been an indexer’s dream. You simply couldn’t choose a bad asset class. It's difficult to imagine that the second half of 2019 could be kinder to multi-asset investors than the first half. It was the best first half to a year for the S&P 500 since 1997. At the same time, the iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond exchange-traded fund had what looks like its best half on record. In a true testament to just how over-the-top the bond rally was, the German 30-year bond logged a total return of some 15%. That would be the

The dean of value investing might find these interesting

If you're looking for cheap, Benjamin Graham-type stocks, then I highly recommend taking a look at prescription and non-prescription pet medication distribution business Petmed Express Inc. (PETS).

Cheap income

This company is a relatively profitable business. It recorded an operating margin of 16.3% for 2019, and return on capital employed has averaged 39% for the past six years. For fiscal 2019, the company reported free cash flow per share of $2.17, up from $1.80 in 2018 and 2019.

Based on these figures, the stock is currently trading at price-ree cash flow ratio 6.9. Thanks to this cash generation, Petmed's

If you invest in big, well-known stocks, it's a challenge for you to see what others don't

Twenty-five Wall Street analysts cover International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) and 22 follow Pfizer Inc. If you invest in big, well-known stocks like these, it’s a challenge for you to see what others don’t.

Your odds of finding an undiscovered gem are higher, in my opinion, in the realm of small stocks. That’s why I’ve always been partial to them.

Mutual funds and pension funds often don’t pay the market’s small fry much attention. If these behemoths eventually pile in, the thundering herd can push up a stock’s price.

Here are five stocks that I think may be undiscovered gems.

Two kinds of companies dominate the Nasdaq Stock Market, small ones and giant technology firms

Two kinds of companies dominate the Nasdaq Stock Market, small ones and giant technology firms.

Both groups interest me. That’s why each year I write a column about my favorite Nasdaq stocks.

My Nasdaq recommendations have done pretty well over the years. In twelve columns beginning in 2001, my picks have returned 15.1% on average. That compares with 14.3% for the Nasdaq Composite Index and 11.0% for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

Bear in mind that my column recommendations are theoretical and don’t reflect actual trades, trading costs or taxes. Their results shouldn’t be confused with the performance of

Stock is near its 52-week low, company has a lot of room to grow

Spending on pet health care in the U.S. is expected to reach $70 billion by 2020 and PetMed Express (PETS) is the very best small-cap trade.

PetMed has a market capitalization under $500 million and while it may be a slow-growth story, the company remains America’s largest pet pharmacy with much more room to expand in the market. By some counts, the number of dogs and cats owned as pets in the U.S. is close to 200 million.

More importantly, pets are treated as well as children with the majority of owners not willing to cut spending on

Owning a good dividend stock is like owning a quality piece of investment real estate

Owning a good dividend stock is like owning a quality piece of investment real estate.

You get paid cash frequently –Â cash you can use as regular income, or to invest back into more assets (stocks/real estate) to get paid even more cash!

If your property/stock is really good, you will even get increasing cash flow from it year after year. For good investment properties, you are able to consistently raise rental rates. For good dividend stocks, the company raises its dividend payout year after year.

You also benefit from the appreciation of your asset. Buying a high-yielding, quality dividend

I'm a big fan of large capitalized stocks because most of them offer a huge diversification. But the great lack of bigger companies is that they do not grow at a fast pace. I'm not talking about Apple, those are exceptions.

The reason is simple: a company with a market cap of $500 million will simply have more room to grow than a company with a market cap of $50 billion. If it makes it to $1 billion, and you've invested, you double your money; if the large cap company adds $500 million to its market cap, you've only made

One of my favorite things about the Magic Formula� Investing (MFI) strategy is that, with some parameters, you can use it to find interesting stocks in any kind of niche you want.

Looking for large, safe, dividend-paying stocks? No problem, just run a screen with a high minimum market cap and scan the results for dividend payers.

Looking for tiny, overlooked micro-caps where the market has ignored rapid growth and great prospects? Run a screen with a low minimum market cap, and if you use our screener, set a low maximum market cap as well!

If you have read my blog for any length of time you should have noticed that dividend growth is one of the most important wealth drivers for long-term dividend investors. I also talked about the difference between high dividend yields at a low growth and low yielding stocks with a high dividend growth. The answer to this question is an in-between solution: Look at good initial yields with growing dividends over a longperiod. I talk about mentionable yields and growth rates above the inflation level. Today I would like to combine both good growth with an acceptable initial dividend yield.

However, as an investor in dividend growth stocks, it is not enough to simply sustain the dividend – we want to own companies that are capable of [i]sustained dividend growth[/i]. Needless to say, this is a little more difficult to accomplish, but well-worth the time to find companies that can deliver on this expectation.
