Stocks at 52 Week Lows

With the recent market volatility the 52 week low list (I am posting an article next week how to profit off the volatility itself stay tuned..) is a good place to look for potentional bargains. I ran a quick screen on companies trading at 5% of their 52 week  , market cap above $1.5b, Quick ratio above 1, and PE TTM below 12. For market cap I did not want to include stocks too small, but I specifically picked 1.5billion, because I wanted to tweak the numbers a bit to come up with exactly 25 names.

Score is calculated as follows:

A sub-score is assigned to each criterion in the search, based on how closely that criterion meets the value selected. 

For example, suppose a screen includes the following three criteria:

  • P/E < 15
  • Earnings growth > 15%
  • Debt/Equity < 20%

and the results include the following stocks:

Criteria Actual Value Score Summary
P/E 11 89 better than 89% of all stocks in universe
Earnings growth 18% 74 better than 74% of all stocks in universe
Debt/Equity 5% 84 better than 84% of all stocks in universe

The stock’s overall score would be 82, calculated as follows: (89 + 74 + 84) / 3.

 

Some of these names are familiar but I would not touch, others look interesting, and others look uninteresting. I just made my own screen but you can do the same on various websites. The point is that this is a good place to look for possible attractive stocks by making a screener of your own. Some very great investors like Walter Schloss used the 52 week low list as a place to find potentially attractive stocks. Some names I woul personally look at is; DO, LLY, FII, ITW, NOC and STLD
