    May 29, 2012 2:56 PM | about stocks: AAPL, BP, CVX, GOOG, IBM, INTC, JNJ, MSFT, PG, VOD, WMT, XOM

    10 largest US and 2 UK companies financial statements are analyzed and here are the main indicators.

    If looking only at share evaluation and profitability clear leaders is BP, Chevron and Vodapfone. Google and IBM are clear outsiders. Average but still good shares Exxon Mobil, Microsoft and Wal-Mart.

    If you look at dividend yield and dividend payout ratio again same leaders BP, Chevron and Vodafone. Two companies Jonson&Jonson and Proctor&Gamble has good dividend yield but their payout ratio is quite high compared to other companies. Outsiders high evaluated Google, Apple and IBM.

    So the best shares at 2012 1Q are: BP, Chevron and Vodafone. According to our methodology these are the top3 largest world companies to invest today. Average but still good shares to invest are Intel, Exxon Mobil, Microsoft and Wal-Mart. Two shares Johnson&Johnson and Proctor&Gamble are a bit pricey and their dividend payout ratio is quite high but they are still at good for investing zone, while last 3 is Apple, Google and IBM which are over-evaluated and IBM has unacceptably low equity level and all 3 have very low dividend yield.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Stocks: AAPL, BP, CVX, GOOG, IBM, INTC, JNJ, MSFT, PG, VOD, WMT, XOM

    the yield on Vodafone looks high. they should pay out like 1.46 cents making it 5.3%. with a 7% climb this year it should still only be 5.67%

    Author’s reply » Drizzt Vodafone alone yes, but dont forget they own 45% of Verizon Wireless and 0,62$ was paid from this companies dividends. This company generates 7,2 bn.£ Net Income and should be able to pay something like 0,5$ of yearly dividends. These dividends should not be one time thing as Verizon earnings do increase. I have done this companies analysis http://bit.ly/K02X8J But I have to say it was a very hard one, probably the harders one yet, their dividends are hard to calculate, and I couldnt find normal number of initiated shares to calculate basic share value, had to calculate it backwards from companies caputalisation. Still 5,67% is quite hihg dividend yield.

    hi but it seems that other telcos in europe have a higher yield. i only like this because i am based in Singapore and vodafone have not withholding tax on dividends.

     

    i think the free cash flow is around 6.1 bil. tahts like 7.28% yield. without verizon.

    Author’s reply » I dont look at free cash flow to much, because working capital is something floating and earned profit is what you should look at the most. Basicly every ratio every thing that you analyse in a acompany comes downt to profit one way or another. I didnt looked at other telcos yet since im looking at largest world companies and compared to the Vodafone looks quite good. Basicly both 2 UK companies has good ratios and I guess it is mostly because of problems in Europe and since UK is a part of Europe Union.

  • FB reasonable price would be 11-12$ if evaluate like GOOG or AAPL shares are right now, so I expect it to go down further. Overexpectation
