  • Zacks' Bear Of The Day: Rayonier [View article]
    Qniform, thank you so much for taking the time to check us out and for your comment. We believe that our metrics are applicable to any company as they measure many general attributes that apply to any company. That being said, we do recognize that REITs are a different beast and that often their balance sheets are highly leveraged and their working capital is constrained. Many banking operations face the same issues. Our model scores the areas low because they have more of a risk.

    We do not advocate that our system should be the sole investing tool used by an investor and always encourage users to seek further advice.

    Best luck!

  • Renewable Energy Group, Inc: Bull Rated [View article]
    All those are great comments and are considerations that should be taken into account when deciding if this stock is a good value. One of the main goals of this article/analysis was to rate this company in comparison to others in its industry based on its financials. The most recent 10-Q provides a good summary of risk factors affecting the company with the government subsidies being number one. Several other recent articles written by Seeking Alpha contributors go into greater depth about the subsidies and the pending acquisition of SYNM's patents. Thanks for your comments!

  • Abbott Laboratories: Cow Rated [View article]
    This article is a pilot for Newton Analytics. One of our values are "intuitiveness". Judging by the confusion on the valuation, we have some work to do. I do appreciate everyone's responses and we will incorporate many of the thoughts raised here in our articles moving forward.

    Thank you eveyone, and best of luck out there!

    Our book value calculation is based off net tangible assets. Yahoo's most likely includes intangible assets and goodwill. Net tangible assets are typically used to consider liquidation value.

    EPS (calculations which are not detailed in the article) look at forward annual expected earnings. The figure would not be on Yahoo.

    Thank you for your interest!

    Not a typo, but you have an interesting view that has given us some consideration. The article does not detail our methodology. Perhaps further explanation on our behalf is necessary in the future. We will incorporate more valuation analysis on articles going forward. Thank you for your comment and time during our pilot article!

    Our scoring methodology flags RYN as a Cow because, like this article discusses, the company is overvalued. I would have to say though that their dividend doesn't look bad! Check out the like below for more analysis.

  • Sell Netflix: The Icahn Thesis Is Flawed [View article]
    Netflix is missing value even though the company has decent financials. We rate the company a Bear, though it is worth noting that their score ranks highest amongst others in the industry. Check out our full analysis if you have time.

  • BP: A Great Source Of Dividends And Long-Term Gains [View article]
    I purchased BP at its lows after the oil spill. I will likely hold on to it for a long time given the high dividend and low probability of the company slipping below what I purchased it for. Dividends on my original investment is currently above 8%.... solid balance sheet.... love it!

  • How I Can Explain 96% Of Your Portfolio's Returns [View article]
    I have always enjoyed the CAPM concept rather than its practical use. I have found much subjectivity in models like CAPM to put too much weight into its use as a measure for risk/return. Then again, this subjectivity could also be used to describe the Alpha variable.

    Market return, for example, can be very different depending on who you ask. It can be quite subjective depending on scope, average calculation, frequency, and index selection. Same goes for any variable within the CAPM equation. Should one use 2 or 3 years of data?; simple or geometric average?; daily, monthly or yearly?; S&P, DOW, industry, or the whole market?

    Thank you for the intriguing article, and I look forward to the next one.

  • Qualcomm Is A Long-Term Buy [View article]
    We have QCOM rated as a Cow because it is of high quality but is overvalued. I do like the low amounts of debt, but David may have a point because the stock is near a 52 week high.

    Best of luck everyone
