Ariel Fund adds to position in magazine publisher

John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio), leader of Ariel Investments, disclosed earlier this week his firm upped its stake in Meredith Corp. (MDP) by 39.05%.

The guru's Chicago-based firm invests in undervalued small and mid-cap companies that have sustainable competitive advantages, high barriers to entry and predictable fundamentals that allow for double-digit earnings growth. Rogers emphasizes that patience, independent thinking and a long-term outlook are necessary for generating good returns.

According to GuruFocus Real-Time Picks, a Premium feature, the firm invested in 1.29 million shares of the Des Moines, Iowa-based media conglomerate on Oct. 31, expanding the equity

Philip Morris gave investors another dividend increase, but is the stock a buy following a solid 3-month rally?

Philip Morris International (PM) recently raised its dividend. This already high yielding stock has now given shareholders a dividend increase for more than a decade following its spinoff from Altria Group Inc. (MO). Including when it was part of Altria, the dividend growth streak expands to more than five decades.

Does this increase and the income the stock provides make Philip Morris a buy, even following a 15% gain over the last three months? In this article, we will examine the company's most recent quarter, dividend and valuation to determine the answer.

Capital Growth Management, a money management firm co-founded by Ken Heebner (Trades, Portfolio), disclosed earlier this month that its top trades during the second quarter featured sales of Phillip Morris International Inc.

The Boston-based firm makes bold and swift sector calls, making large bets based on Heebner's convictions. As of the quarter-end, the firm's $860 million equity portfolio contains 41 stocks, with 29 new holdings and a turnover ratio of 49%.

The company trades with a single-digit price-earnings ratio and offers an 8% dividend yield

Shares of Altria Group Inc. (MO) have decreased nearly 15% year to date while the S&P 500 has climbed more than 4%. The stock trades with a single-digit price-earnings ratio, well off of its long-term average. Shares also pay an 8% dividend yield. Is now the right time to buy Altria?

Quarterly highlights

Philip Morris International Inc. (PM)

Philip Morris is making great strides with their smokeless, heated tobacco product IQOS that was recently approved by the FDA. It greatly reduces the risk for those who enjoy the taste of nicotine. This product is seeing sales growth from 15%-40% throughout the world. The company continues to evolve as they are focusing heavily on ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance), recently putting out a 192-page report.

While the tobacco industry may continue to see headwinds, some companies are better positioned than others

Admittedly, cigarettes used to be a great business. As Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) described it: "It costs a penny to make. Sell it for a dollar. It's addictive. And there's fantastic brand loyalty." However, the traditional tobacco industry has mostly seen quite some challenges resulting from greater awareness of the risks associated with smoking, improving cessation therapies, as well as the secular decline in cigarette volume that was accelerated by the vaping alternative lately. Over the last couple of years, major tobacco companies, including Altria (MO), Philip Morris (PM), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Imperial Brands (LSE:IMB),

The greenback is likely to shed some of its recent gains

The U.S. dollar has enjoyed a nice run since late 2013 thanks to the strengthening economy. The U.S. Dollar Index (DXY), which is often used to gauge a measure of the greenback’s strength against a basket of currencies representing developed nations, gained more than 23% through April this year, only to shed over 7% since then along with the macroeconomic challenges faced by the global economy. A few fund managers and analysts have already made their case for a weaker dollar in the coming years. Not paying attention to this ongoing development could cost investors money in the long run.

Philip Morris (PM) was able to recover some of the ground lost during the first quarter selloff but remains well below its early-year highs. Tobacco industry volumes were hurt by Covid-19, as lockdowns and other social-distancing restrictions in certain key markets hurt demand. Duty-free sales also suffered given the lack of global travel during the period. Given its pricing power, cost discipline and robust balance sheet, we believe Philip Morris appears well positioned to navigate the ongoing transition from traditional combustible tobacco products to “heat not burn” alternatives.

Broadcom, Federal Realty and Philip Morris all offer at least a 4% yield and a mid-teens price-earnings ratio

Finding income can be difficult in a market where the average yield for the S&P 500 is just 1.9%. Just as hard is finding stocks trading with a valuation below the market index price-earnings ratio of 22. We will look at three stocks with above 4% yields, have at least a decade of dividend growth and a price-earnings ratio below the S&P 500. Investors looking to reap the rewards of owning these dividend-paying stocks need to own shares by the ex-dividend date, which happens to be June 19 for all three names below.

The oddity of today's stock market is exactly what any God-fearing value manager should pray for

The oddity of today’s stock market is exactly what any God-fearing value manager should pray for. There are very few scenarios in the last 50 years that can be used to model or forecast what is currently going on. We are strong believers in Mark Twain’s saying that, “History never repeats itself, but it rhymes.” While you can’t precisely forecast the future, the rhymes of past eras can help provide a mental model to produce potential outcomes to help us as stock pickers. Our model for thinking about today’s circumstances is the inversion of what took place in 1972, matched

The S&P 500 is expensive again, but there is still value to be found

It can be difficult for investors to find undervalued stock with the S&P 500 trading at a price-earnings multiple near 23. For income investors, finding stocks with generous yields is also becoming tricky.

In this article, we will look at five high-yielding stocks that trade at a lower valuation than the S&P 500.

AbbVie Inc.

AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) was spun off from Abbot Laboratories (ABT) in 2013. The company’s Humira was the best-selling drug in the world for quite some time. Humira has lost patent protection in the European Union already and will do the same in the U.S. in

Discussion of market conditions

CGM Mutual Fund decreased -27.8% during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500 Index) which decreased -19.6% and the ICE BofAML U.S. Corporate, Government and Mortgage Index* which increased 3.3%.
