If you have children of school age, you’re probably familiar with the products developed and marketed by 3P Learning: Mathletics, Spellodrome, Reading Eggs and their latest product, IntoScience.
3P’s products are used by over 5.3 million students in over 17,000 schools on every continent around the world – 110 counties in total. Very few Aussie companies can boast such a wide reach around the globe.
Whilst 3PL’s share price hasn’t done much since listing on the ASX in July 2014, if the company continues its recent track record of rising earnings, profits and cash flows, then the future could look very different.

Volatility is what makes up the stockmarket. As an investor, you shouldn’t be afraid of volatility but rather harness it to buy into top stocks at great prices. Here are Skaffold’s five tips to help your portfolio flourish through volatile markets.
1. Don’t be afraid to sell
2. Don’t chase dividends blindly
3. Avoid bad stocks in the first place
4. Holding cash is better than taking a loss
5. Build a watch list of top stocks and jump in when there is a correction

With reporting season done and dusted – except for tiny speculative mining companies that don’t make money anyway – now is a prime time to go on the hunt for top stocks to buy.
If you cleaned out your portfolio before reporting season, you’ll have a wad of spare cash sitting in the bank begging to be invested. Even if you don’t have cash to invest right now, learning how to find great stocks to buy is a good thing to practice. You may even want to set up a pretend portfolio to track how you’d have gone, had you actually invested your money.
Paper trading is a great way to get started and feel your way around the sharemarket, without committing your hard-earned cash. Whether they’re listed on the sharemarket or privately owned, the very best companies have 10 features in common. Once you know how to spot top stocks, and avoid their lesser quality counterparts, sharemarket investing will be a breeze.

While there are times when the ASX offers an impressive list of high-performing growth stocks, limiting yourself during times when local growth is slowing can detract from the long-term performance of your portfolio. So if you prefer to stick with the big end of town and don’t want to limit yourself to bank and mining stocks, then it’s time to think global.
This month we jumped into Skaffold Global – there are around 2000 stocks to choose from – and uncovered a list of the largest stocks in the same sectors as our top 10: banks, mining, telecommunications, retail and biotechnology.
In May 2014 we did the same comparison: Australia’s top 10 stocks versus the world. Had you invested $100,000 equally across the nine global stocks identified, you’d be sitting on a capital gain of $10,500 and received $2,700 in dividends. That’s a return of 13 per cent. Add the benefits of currency movements and your profit, including dividends, rises to $30,000, or a 30 per cent gain on your initial investment. Over the same period the S&P/All Ordinaries Accumulation Index returned 7.8 per cent.

A big clean out – of your garage, wardrobe, garden shed – can be liberating. You’ll stumble across stuff you forgot you had (and realise you can’t live without it) and uncover a mountain of junk that should have been put out for the council clean-up five years ago. Routinely cleaning out your portfolio is no different from a spring clean of your home. You need to do it regularly and be ruthless.
If you put your companies through the wringer, deciding whether to buy, sell or hold should be simple.

CMI Limited (CMI) has rejoined the A1 club. Competitor ARB Corp (ARP) is also rated A1 by Skaffold. Whilst ARB’s business model is focused on the manufacture and distribution of 4x4 accessories for recreational 4WD vehicles, CMI’s expands beyond 4WD accessories to include specialist cabling and electrical products for a range of industry sectors that includes light commercial and heavy transport vehicles. Unfortunately both companies are trading at prices higher than Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate.
