Whether you are building a portfolio from scratch, or seeking new positions, our The Timely Ten list represents our top ten recommendations as of each issue, explains Kelley Wright, editor of Investment Quality Trends.
To be clear, The Timely Ten is not just another â€œbest of, right nowâ€ list. Rather, it is our reasoned expectation based on our methodology and experience that these ten currently Undervalued stocks offer the greatest real total-return potential over the next five years.
Traditionally we recommend that all investment considerations begin with the following criteria: Stocks from the â€œUndervaluedâ€ category; an S&P Quality Ranking of A- or better; exemplary long-term dividend growth; and a P/E ratio of 15 or less
We add these metrics to our investment considerations: A Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) of 10% or greater; a Free Cash Flow Yield (FCFY) of 5% or greater; a proprietary Price to Value Ratio (PVR) between 0 and 1.6 where the lower the number the better.
The latest Timely Ten stocks are:
Do we believe that all 10 will appreciate simultaneously or immediately? Of course not.
However, our five-plus decades of research and experience, however, leads us to believe that these stocks, purchased at current Undervalued levels, are well positioned for both growth of capital and income.
