Guru stock highlight

Pittsburgh-based PPG Industries (PPG) is a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of paints, coatings and specialty materials. PPG has a history of conservative balance sheet management and strong capital allocation and has generated positive free cash flow for more than 40 consecutive years. Early-2020 weakness in PPG’s share price, due primarily to its exposure to cyclical weakness in autos and industrial production, enabled us to add this business to the portfolio at what we considered an attractive price.

Discussion of markets and holdings

Market Overview

The emergence of the novel coronavirus and the economic impact of efforts to contain its transmission led to a deep, sharp repricing of risk assets during the first quarter as liquidity concerns emerged across financial markets. The first-quarter market rout began as a typical flight to safety, with risk assets declining sharply while traditional safe havens rallied. By mid-March, however, financial markets appeared on the verge of breaking down, with pockets of illiquidity emerging across asset classes; investors had nowhere to hide as cross-asset correlations and intra-stock volatility rose to historic levels. As global mone-tary and fiscal policy

Use these tools to help figure out what to pay for stocks

In an earlier section of their 2014 book, "Strategic Value Investing: Practical Techniques of Leading Value Investors," authors Stephen Horan, Robert R. Johnson and Thomas Robinson discussed the dividend discount model, a type of discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, for stock valuations.

These models, among others, are used to estimate the present value of a stock by discounting back future cash flows. Present value tells us how much these future income streams are worth to us today, based on the idea that current dollars are always worth more than dollars in the future (in turn, that reflects the

Determining which paint company is the better investment

(Published by Bob Ciura on June 14)

The Dividend Aristocrats are among the best dividend growth stocks investors can buy. The Dividend Aristocrats is a group of 51 stocks with at least 25 consecutive years of dividend increases.

Companies with more than two decades of dividend growth must have a strong brand, dominant industry position and durable competitive advantages.

Just because a stock is on the list of Dividend Aristocrats, however, does not automatically make it a buy.

For example, PPG Industries Inc. (PPG) is a Dividend Aristocrat. It has increased its dividend for 44 years in a row,

Looking for value in the Dividend Aristocrats, a sector-by-sector review

As a value investor, I must admit to being very frustrated with the valuations I’m seeing on high-quality blue-chip dividend growth stocks.

I have been vigorously searching for fairly valued dividend growth stocks in which to invest. I have thoroughly screened and evaluated every company in the Standard & Poor's Dividend Aristocrats, all three of the CCC (Champions, Contenders and Challengers) lists produced by David Fish, every dividend-paying stock on the S&P 500, Fortune 500, NASDAQ 100, S&P 100 Large-cap, Dow Jones Industrial Average and even the S&P 400 mid-cap universe.

A look at the growth prospects for PPG Industries

“But that’s as boring as watching paint dry.” Paint is not known for its excitement. It is not a "hot" industry like biotech or social networks.

Paint is notable for its lack of change. You may remember how Tom Sawyer tricked his friends into painting his fence white for him. That book was written in 1876.

People are still painting their houses and (sometimes) fences to this day.

While paint may not be exciting, it can be very profitable. Long-term investors can compound their wealth over decades by investing in slow-changing industries.

Sherwin-Williams has returned 21.1% per year over last decade; will its run continue?

Sherwin-Williams (SHW) has annually increased dividends since 1979 and outperformed the market by nearly 14% per year over the last decade.

Watching paint dry has been quite rewarding with coatings producer Sherwin-Williams, but past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
