I have a problem with both

The following was excerpted from our Winter letter to IMA clients.

I have a problem with both growth and value demagogues.

Growth demagogues will argue that valuation is irrelevant for high-growth companies because the price you pay for growth doesn't matter. They usually say this after a very extended move in growth stocks, where these investors look like gods that walk on water. They call value investors "accountants."

The price you pay matters (this is not a new message). As we've discussed in the past, if you bought great, high-growth companies near the end of the Nifty Fifty bubble in

According to GuruFocus' unique intrinsic value measure, these stocks could be undervalued

The terms "Nasdaq" and "undervalued" do not go hand-in-hand in the minds of most investors. The high-profile tech and tech-adjacent stocks that make up the index are usually awarded eye-watering valuations as investors have already priced in their anticipated growth for the years and even decades to come.

This pattern is clearly demonstrated by how, despite the economic downturn from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Nasdaq 100 is up 34% year to date compared to the S&P 500's 9% gain.

The company has several areas of strength, and shares remain significantly undervalued

Earlier this month, I wrote that I felt Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) was a dividend growth investor's dream stock. I continue to believe this to be true because the company rates highly in terms of profitability, capital returns, dividend yield and track record.

The stock has struggled this year, dropping almost 38% year-to-date as the Covid-19 pandemic has greatly impacted results.

However, the company's fortunes may be changing. Walgreens reported earnings results that topped Wall Street's estimates on Thursday morning. Let's look at why the recent business performance confirms my bullish stance on the stock.

A deep dive into the company's ability to continue paying dividends

Dividend growth investing isn't as easy as simply buying stocks trading at a yield that is appealing and then holding forever. Dividend growth investors do seek investments that provide income, but these investors usually have a time horizon that is very long. As these investors plan on living off dividend income in their retirement years, the holding period could easily be several decades.

Therefore, dividend growth investors have to be reasonably assured that their investment dollars are building positions in companies that will likely be able to continue paying and raising dividends in the future.

Aside from the dividend yield

The Walgreens Boots Alliance was born when two pharmacy giants, one in the U.S. and one in the United Kingdom, merged in 2014. The company now describes as follows in its 10-K:
