86 Deep Value And Quality Deep Value Ideas Around The World

86 Deep Value And Quality Deep Value Ideas Around The World by Tim du Toit, Quant Investing

After a bit of volatility around the world the past few months I thought you would be interested in finding out where the cheapest 86 deep value investment ideas can be found around the world.

Screener criteria

To find the deep value ideas this is what I screened for:

  • All companies listed on the main stock markets worldwide
  • Daily traded volume of at least $100,000 (you must be able to buy or sell relatively easily)
  • Minimum company market value $30 million (to remove really small companies)
  • Sorted all the companies that met the above criteria by trailing 12 month Earnings Yield (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes to Enterprise Value) the best valuation metric ever tested worldwide

Earnings Yield works
