Australia’s top 10 stocks by market capitalisation – BHP Billiton (BHP), Commonwealth Bank (CBA), Rio Tinto (RIO), Westpac (WBC), ANZ, NAB, Telstra (TLS), Wesfarmers (WES), Woolworths (WOW) and CSL – are a solid group of companies that have, on balance, delivered strong returns for shareholders.
Are they positioned to continue delivering growth or do their global counterparts represent more attractive opportunities? We went inside Skaffold Global to find out.
Also consider this: you won’t find any global tech companies in the ASX 10. Pharmaceuticals, big oil and household products also fail to feature in our local market. To gain exposure to these global industries, you must expand your universe to the US and Europe.

You need to tread carefully when using a price earnings ratio (P/E) and dividend yield to gauge how attractive bank stocks might be. That’s because bad debts or one-off items can compromise the sustainability of bank dividends.
So it’s important to understand that banks require some peculiar evaluation criteria when it comes to assessing their intrinsic value and business performance. If you do want to call on the price earnings ratio to help value and compare one bank stock against another, then it must be used alongside some bank-specific financial ratios.
Whilst some valuation principles are equally applicable to all companies, there are a number of complications specific to banks such as determining leverage – due to being both borrower and lender - regulatory impact, capital expenditure and interest margins.
The key financial ratios you need to look at when evaluating banks and estimating their intrinsic value are net interest margin, cost to income ratio, bad debts, return on assets, Tier 1 capital ratio and the price to book ratio.

Australia’s “Big 4” banks dominate our Top 10, collectively representing 42% of our largest listed stocks. Historically the banks have been a safe haven for investors seeking a reliable income stream. In the last 12 months shareholders have also enjoyed exceptional share price growth averaging more than 25%.
Which bank stands out for its history of consistent growth, steady dividend stream, efficiency and good cost control over the past 12 months? And which bank is well positioned to continue rewarding its shareholders. Is it one of Australia’s “Big 4”, or should investors expand their investment universe offshore?

When is the best time to buy shares? Do you insist on a 20% safety margin across the board? Maybe you’re prepared to pay a little above today’s value because you believe the future value of the business is likely to be materially higher. If you find a great business, and are planning to remain an owner for five years or more, will paying an extra 5 or 10 per cent today really matter if your timeframe as an investor in the business is over 5 or 10 years?
Whatever your approach, be consistent. It’s when investors deviate from their investment approach that trouble can occur. Also remember that you won’t make money on every trade. When it comes to investing, not losing money is just as important as picking the winners.
