  • Why Stonemor Is A Risky Proposition [View article]
    From an analytical perspective, there is little difference between calling a cash payment to investors a dividend or a distribution. It has different consequences for individual investors, but they are exchageable from an analytical standpoint.

    Thanks for reading.

  • Why Microsoft Is Hands Down One Of The Cheapest Stocks On The Market [View article]
    Hi friends,

    Thank you all for reading. We appreciate your comments very much.

    Microsoft is a core holding in our DG Newsletter. We typically add firms to our actively-managed portfolios when they register a 9 or 10 and hold them until they register a 1 or 2. Microsoft remains significantly undervalued, so it remains one of our best dividend growth ideas -- even though it now registers a score of 3.

    Pasted below, please find a write-up that goes into the best way to consider using our system:

  • August Auto Sales: Ford's C-Max Outselling Tesla's Model S [View article]
    We understand. We thought it important to keep Tesla in perspective relative to the other automakers and similar (but not perfectly comparable) substitutes. Great discussion.

  • Interested In A Holistic Research Approach For Home Depot? [View article]
    Hi TwinCities,

    Our process is not a simple 'We'd buy' when it's undervalued or a simple 'We'd sell' when it's overvalued. Other methodologies work that way, and we can't apologize for them.

    You'll notice that in the article you reference, Home Depot actually scored a 5 on our Valuentum Buying Index, which is our stock methodology. A 5 is middle-of-the-road. This is equivalent to a 'We'd hold.'

    It appears you are focused up on the valuation aspects of our process, which represents only part of the holistic view we pursue. There's nothing wrong with that -- we do fantastic valuation work -- but it is not our entire process. A combination of value --> momentum is why our process is superior to others -- because it considers what other investors think via technical/momentum work.

    So while, we continue to believe Home Depot falls within our fair value range (we have updated our fair value a few times since publishing), the company never registered a 'We'd sell' rating of a 1 or 2. This is an important distinction of our process.

    At the time of this writing, Home Depot registers a 6. We understand our process is complicated, but it works. We understand that many investors like to focus just on valuation, but we take a holistic approach, and this is why even though we didn't nail Home Depot's valuation (the jury is still out, however), our process didn't shun the stock like others.

    I hope this clarifies things.

  • Ever Want To Learn How To Evaluate DuPont's Stock? [View article]
    funfun,

    Excellent point regarding management. One of the key areas that we focus on is how management is performing as it relates to the fundamentals. We love talking about management teams and digging into the proxy, but the ultimate weighing machine is the financials of the firm. We can learn a lot about a firm's business model and its management team just by looking at the financial statements. It's akin to learning about management by evaluating what they do as opposed to what they say.

    Thank you so much for commenting!
