  • UGI Corp: Fundamental Stock Research Analysis [View article]
    To All,

    On behalf of FASTGraphs, allow me to respond to your comments. First of all your critique is certainly valid, and I will ask the team to add some additional info in the future.

    On the other hand, the idea behind these FASTGraph articles was to let the graphs be the meat of the article. The company's business results as depicted by the orange line produces what we call "essential fundamentals at a glance, and we feel provides a great deal of insight and actionable information about the business behind the stock.

    For example it is clear from the FASTGraph on UGI, that the company has grown earnings at an above average rate, with some occasional cyclicality in between. It also reveals the company's generous dividend policy for shareholders etc.

    Moreover, we feel that the fundamental driven FASTGraph provides an instantaneous perspective regarding whether a more comprehensive research effort is warranted or not. I have always felt this was perhaps the greatest benefit of a FASTGraph- does what I see (the graph shows) indicate that more work is worthy of my time or not. Of course valuation is a key factor regarding that decision.

    To conclude, the FASTGraph team is attempting to offer the reader our perspective based on essential fundamentals at a glance of potentially worthy candidates for investment. But we are hopeful that the graphs themselves serve as the best proxy prior to a more comprehensive research effort. When I personally publish an article, I spend hours researching the company before I even start to write. The FASTGraph team does not have that luxury. However, I have asked them to produce these graphs based articles in order to provide what might be good ideas for readers to dig deeper into. We are trying to be helpful and not to agitate. So what are your opinions and feedback on what we should do going forward in the new year?

    Regards,

  • Express Scripts: F.A.S.T. Graphs Large-Cap Growth Stock For Oct. 16, 2012 [View article]
    TFCAB,

    We believe the market's reaction is significantly overdone. ESRX had a great quarter, and we expect continued growth going forward. Unfortunately, management's comment was vague, not offering a specific, which apparently has spooked the market. We remain very confident in the long-term growth prospects of ESRX.
    Long EXRX.

    Paul,

    You are correct, the estimated total return calculation does include the dividend paid but not reinvested. The number is simply offered as a calculation for perspective and, as you pointed out, is based on the company achieving the forecast growth rate, the stock trading at the justified PE ratio based on that growth rate, plus the effects of dividends paid.

    If you run the free sample FAST Graph, you will see that the dividend, as you suggested, has been the same since 2009.

  • Hasbro: F.A.S.T. Graphs Dividend Growth Stock Value Idea For Oct.15, 2012 [View article]
    Alan,

    Frankly it is a horse race. Both expected by consensus to grow earnings at similar rates (8-9%). We like HAS long term history better, although MAT has the growth edge by a large margin since the recession. Current valuation goes to HAS, but again its close. After today's drop yield advantage HAS. Bottom line we like them both.
