In the eight months since May 2013, the share price of Skaffold’s top global stocks has risen, on average, 10%. 15 of the 27 stocks identified in May 2013 have recorded rising share prices averaging just over 25%. Only four stocks have returned share price falls in excess of 10%.
The most impressive share price gains were recorded by Hong Kong listed casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (up 93%), UK-listed commercial television network ITV plc (up 49%), US-listed Global Payments Inc (up 42%) and Canadian businesses Pason Systems (up 37%) and Canadian Western Bank (up 35%). Four of the top 10 performers are listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange.
Hong Kong also recorded the largest decline, with Skyworth Digital Holdings share price falling 22% since May 2013. UK-listed Old Mutual (down 16%) and Petrofac (down 16%), Canadian supermarket chain Metro Inc (down 15%) and China Overseas Land & Investment, listed on the Hong Kong Exchange (down 9%) posted the largest losses.
Keeping in mind that Australian shares make up only about 2% of the overall world market, it makes sense to open up your investment universe to businesses simply not available on the local exchange.

While often overlooked by investors when analysing fundamentals, there’s no better insight into what’s left for you as a shareholder in a business once it’s paid all its bills than an analysis of cash flow. When it comes to assessing the investment quality of a company's cash flow, you should be attracted to those with sufficient money in the bank to fund their operations and produce an ongoing Funding Surplus. The greater a company’s Funding Surplus the more likely it is to avoid excessive borrowing, expand its business, pay dividends and withstand any economic downturns.
You need to be wary of well-known large-caps with unhealthy cash positions which may still attract uninformed investors due to their size. High profile stocks with large debt and poor cash flow – which contributes to poor Skaffold Scores - include: Sonic Healthcare (SHL), Seven Group Holdings (SVW), James Hardie Industries (JHX), Toll Holdings (TOL), Oil Search (OSH), Woodside Petroleum (WPL), Leighton Holdings (LEI), Asciano (AIO), Duet Group (DUE), Tabcorp Holdings (TAH), Transurban (TCL), Brambles (BXB), Origin Energy (ORG), SP AusNet (SPN), APA Group (APA) and Sydney Airport Holdings (SYD).
