The recent slump in the gold price has sent the share prices of many companies exposed to the precious metal into freefall.
Northern Star Resources (CODE:NST) is one of Skaffold’s more highly rated mining stocks, with strong underlying fundamentals of balance sheet quality and business performance driving its B2 stock rating. Of further significance is the fact some of the issues that are just edging it out of a best in class rating (A1, A2) look set to be addressed in the near term.
Is now the time for contrarian investors to snap up a diamond in the rough?

If you take the 170-odd stocks that Skaffold currents rates as investment grade (A1, A2, B1 and B2) and then filter those with both a positive safety margin – trading at a discount to their intrinsic value – that are also forecast to grow their intrinsic value, we’re left with only a handful of stock to invest in. All things considered, these are the best quality companies that value investors could justifiably contemplate buying at current levels.
However, it’s important to remember that the share market is a constantly moving feast, and that companies can move in and out of investment grade status, as measured by the Skaffold Score, each reporting season due to any number of macro influences and company specific dynamics.
So with that in mind, we decided to go in search of companies that could potentially be knocking on the door of investment grade status if their fortunes continue to improve.

Full year results for more than 20 companies have now updated in Skaffold. Transurban Group (TCL) sustained its less than impressive Skaffold Score for business quality and performance whilst Education provider Navitas (NVT) generated a return on equity of 31.5% and retained its A2 Skaffold Score.
Yesterday Downer EDI (DOW), Cochlear (COH), Iress (IRE) and Credit Corp (CCP) released their latest financial results.
Iress confirmed its acquisition of UK financial planning software company Avelo for a cash purchase price of £210 million (equivalent to AUD $360 million). Like its A1 peers, the market has already aware of IRE’s impressive performance. The share price is trading at a 50% premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate of just under $4.00. Is IRE another stock for the watch list should a market correction occur?
