Hardly any stocks have managed to hold fairly steady, a difficult feat in this environment. Some of them deserve a look

The coronavirus has sent stocks careening around like the balls in a pinball machine.

Hardly any stocks have managed to hold fairly steady, a difficult feat in this environment. I think some of them deserve a look.

Like most pundits, I often write about stocks that have risen or fallen dramatically. Once a year I like to write about stocks that haven’t moved much. I call them the Do Nothing Club.

Over the years, I’ve written 16 columns on these do-nothing stocks. The average one-year return has been 7.68% and the average three-year return has been 30.9%. That beats the

Markets have plunged in recent weeks, but disciplined investors can take advantage of the selloff and buy high-yielding names at cheaper prices

Due in large part to the spread of the coronavirus, markets have suffered steep declines over the past two weeks. The declines in the index have been breathtaking. For example, it took the S&P 500 just six trading days to enter into correction territory, the fastest time in its history.

There has been almost no place for investors to hide during this time, which is why the 10-Year Treasury note had seen a significant decline in yield as investors flooded into what might appear as the only safe haven currently in the market. The 10-year note yielded 1.30% as recently

With impeachment and trade war in the air, the stock market probably won't roar ahead in the next 12 months

With impeachment and trade war in the air, the stock market probably won’t roar ahead in the next 12 months.

Anything can happen, but my guess is that the coming 12 months will see a normal gain of 10% or less. In that environment, wouldn’t it be nice to have a head start of three or four percentage points?

You can get that head start by choosing stocks with an above-average dividend yield. If Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC), for example, yields a little over 3% in dividends, you are already more than 30% of the way to a 10% annual

Got your reclining chair? Your drink? Your comfortable spring clothes?

Good. It’s time for a meeting of the Do-Nothing Club.

This is a club for stocks that have hardly budged from where they were a month ago, and a year ago. They’ve essentially done nothing.

Such stocks are often neglected by investors and sometimes by analysts too. Yet there may be something happening below the surface – or about to happen.

Let’s take a look at five such stocks.

ModernGraham valuation model reveals top picks

There are a number of great companies in the market today. By using the ModernGraham valuation model, I've selected the 10 most undervalued companies. Each company reviewed has been determined to be suitable for the Enterprising Investor.

Defensive Investors are defined as investors who need to select only the companies that present the least amount of risk. Enterprising Investors, on the other hand, are able to do substantial research and can select companies that present a moderate (though still low) amount of risk. Each company suitable for the Defensive Investor is also suitable for Enterprising Investors.

Getting on a plane is a two-step process

Getting on a plane is a two-step process. First you have to buy a ticket. Then you have to get through airport security.

For me, researching a stock is slightly similar. Does the stock price appear low in relation to the company’s earnings? Consider the ticket bought.

Then I want to see how the price compares to the company’s cash flow. That’s a bit like the airport security check.

Cash flow, as its name suggests, is a measure of the cash flowing through a business. It excludes intangible items such as depreciation and amortization.
