Dividends4Life: Finding Value-Priced Stocks

Finding Value-Priced Stocks

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, March 27, 2013 | | 0 comments »

Given the market's big run-up so far this year, this might be a good time to consider value-priced stocks. These are stocks that didn't participate in the rally; in fact they went down instead of up. The reason: in most cases, either the last quarter's results, and/or forecasts for coming quarters, fell short of market expectations. Value investors seek out stocks in those categories with the best chances of bouncing back in future months. However, there's more to finding worthwhile value candidates than simply buying beaten-down stocks. In fact, most of those won't recover.

Here's how you can use the free and user friendly stock screening program offered by FINVIZ.com to pinpoint unloved stocks with good turnaround prospects. My screen turned up four candidates: Green Dot (GDOT), Select Comfort (SCSS), Silicon Motion Technology (SIMO) and Zumiez (ZUMZ). Value investors must be a contrarian by nature. Value stocks are, by definition, out-of-favor with most investors and stock analysts. That's why they're trading so far below year-ago highs. Consider the stocks listed by this screen, or any screen for that matter, as research candidates, not a buy list. The more you know about your stocks, the better your results.
