For the past two years Money magazine has asked Skaffold.com to name the Top 50 undervalued stocks, including five standouts.
Skaffold’s 2013 top stocks produced exceptional results and outperformed the All Ords Accumulation Index, as our 2012 portfolio had done the previous year.

Over the same period the All Ords Accumulation Index returned 17.5% p.a.. Skaffold’s Top Stocks outperformed the Index by 3.8% p.a.. That equates to $4,560 more profit in your pocket.
On 6 February 2014 Money magazine will hit the newsstands, unveiling Skaffold’s top stocks for 2014, which for the first time includes global shares.
