Buying top-notch stocks at below their true value is the hallmark of successful value investors.
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. Assuming you invested $50,000 equally across the 2012 Top 5 stocks on 10 January 2012, sold on 11 January 2013, then purchased the 2013 Top 5 stocks, and sold on 10 January 2014, your 2 year return, including capital gains and income, would be 21.3% p.a.. 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.
Until then, here is a rundown on Skaffold’s 2012 and 2013 Money portfolios, and how the stocks stack up in Skaffold today.
