John Neff’s Screen Results
John Neff, turns out, is a lot like me. Likes buying quality companies when they’re undervalued and out of favor. Makes sense to me. So he had a method/equation he used to find investable companies. If Total Return (earnings growth + dividend yield) divided by the price to earnings ratio was at least 2:1, he took interest. Using numbers provided by Simply Wall Street, here is a list of quality companies whose growth + yield are more than 2x the current P/E ratio. All are profitable and relatively stable, out of favor and relatively cheap. Obviously, do your own research. I just want to share some of the results to offer up new ideas to anyone looking to spread their wings.
Here are the results, I do own some of these FYI.
I share my portfolio, but to save anyone time, I currently own $MATX , $WIRE , $BCC , $MDC , and held $LU is the past, but it appreciated like 30% in a week immediately after I bought it (100% luck to happen that quickly), that’s a sell in my book. Gotta remember to not be greedy, pigs get slaughtered. If I can make 20%-30% in a month, I’ll take it and move on. Too many opportunities to make money to be in love with any stock.
I hope that provides some new companies for a few value investors. Enjoy!
Remember, if you like charts, you’ll hate most of these stocks😉I go against the crowds momentum, hence the success.
On a side note, $MATX & $WIRE are showing up on lots of my different quality screens. Those are the two you may want to evaluate first😉
Let me know what you like or hate, be sharing one a week for a while.
PS: I mentioned I use ZERO forward looking anything; however, to build Neff’s screen, I had to use 12 month FWD earnings estimates to estimate total return. I reduced analyst earnings estimates by 10% to increase my margin of safety further and ensure estimates were conservative. This will be the ONLY time forward looking anything will be used in a post of mine🤙

Could anybody with insight and opinions on the Fed's tapering help me please?
I'm going round in circles with it.

The Federal Reserve is finally going to start tapering. My understanding is that this will help reduce inflation (less money entering circulation) and will therefore reduce prices and encourage spending, meaning value Cyclicals are a pretty good bet at the moment?

However, by reducing its bond purchases, banks will lose that source of revenue and will need to make it up elsewhere, such as increasing their own interest rates to consumers therefore leaving them with less money to spend.

My over-arching 'feel' is that this will benefit consumers and they will therefore spend more. So I've found a few consumer-oriented businesses with good technicals that meet my trading rules: $WGO, $CHWY, $WOOF, $RDFN, and $MNST (though earnings proximity scares me).

I appreciate I have massively over-simplified the effects of quantitive easing here but is the jist of it correct or am I massively off the mark?
Might be worth keeping in mind that the Fed is often late and winds up being overly aggressive (historically) in removing the monetary punch bowl. Additionally, stocks tend to do OK despite the Fed hiking rates until about the 4th increase (we're a long way from there). It's also interesting to note that small cap stocks tend to perform well during periods of rising interest rates.

Featured earnings for the week of Oct 18
Earnings season (finally) getting into full gear!

So many interesting companies announcing earnings next week. Here are is the Fincredible Featured list. View all here.

Here are some I own / or particularly interested in

$JNJ - very interested to see results in the medical devices segment. Specifically are their signs of closing the gap with $ISRG with their new platform and are elective surgeries coming back

$ISRG - flip side of the $JNJ narrative. I love it when competitors announce close to each other :)

$NFLX - international subscriber numbers

$T - update on discovery spin-off, dividend and 5G capex

$XM - $MNTV is my top 3 holding based on thesis they are making inroads in enterprise market, which $XM dominates. Big enough market for both but want some context.

A few companies like $PG on inflation numbers, but I suspect @awallis will be kinda enough to provide a MacroTalk update on this topic again

Currently long $ADBE since they transitioned from perpetual licenses to the cloud. Never added substantially$ to the position because they always seemed expensive (it was trading at sub 5x P/S). #regrets
