Cheaply valuated stocks with a predictable business and yields over 3% originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. It's important not to overpay a stock. The first rule you need to follow is to pay acceptable prices for a growing business that is somehow calculable. I talk about a business model with nearly stable sales that grow over the long-run.
On my blog, I often present such companies with a low volatile business and good yields. Today I would like to use the gurufocus screener about predictable companies.
The screener gave me the opportunity to look for new, customized stock ideas which I would like to share with you here now. Below is a list of the best yielding cheaply valuated stocks with yields over 3 percent as well as a forward P/E under 15.
Eighteen stocks with a better than 4-Star gurufocus rating fulfilled the above mentioned criteria. Three of the results have a high yield and four are currently recommended to buy or even better.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 12.66 and forward P/E ratio is 11.54. The dividend yield has a value of 4.55 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.65 and price to sales ratio 1.97. The operating margin amounts to 25.77 percent and the beta ratio is 0.76. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.98.
