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. 

How Value Investors Can Win With Tech And “Fallen” Growth Stocks

Valuation Present ValueMany value investors have given up on their strategy over the last 15 years amid concerns that value investing no longer worked. However, some made small adjustments to their strategy but remained value investors to the core. Now all of the value investors who held fast to their investment philosophy are being rewarded as value Read More

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

  1. $NOC is pretty cheap at this point and yielding 4%. I think people have sold in response to the whole budget debacle and the recent market turmoil. The key point that people appear to miss is that $NOC has a division that focuses on Cybersecurity which I expect will see increasing importance and as a result increasing profitability for the company. Expect it to pick up some of the slack from the cuts to other divisions.
