The Skaffold 2016 Top 5 portfolio is up by 10.3% year to date, beating the index by a tidy 3.9%. It has been a rocky road, but since July the portfolio has surged ahead driven by strong results from Nick Scali and Smart Group Corporation.

When you buy shares in top quality companies with solid balance sheets, good cash flows and a business model that is not susceptible to market fluctuations, it doesn’t really matter if the market drops $55 billion in a day.
That’s because investors who own shares in top-notch companies don’t panic. If you’ve done your research with Skaffold, and you’re confident that the shares in your portfolio are more likely than not to be worth significantly more in two, five or tens years time, then what happens in the market is incidental.

Despite a bump here and there along the way, in 20 years as a listed company, FLT has just recorded its 19th year-on-year increase in Total Transactional Value. Despite being slightly lower than 2013/14, FLT’s latest 2014/15 result is the second best in its history.
FLT’s reported results are in sync with Skaffold’s forecasts.
Given FLT reported record global sales and strong profit overseas, and the second half is typically a stronger season for FLT, could Flight Centre be the first company this reporting season to upgrade its Skaffold Score stock rating to A1?

A big clean out – of your garage, wardrobe, garden shed – can be liberating. You’ll stumble across stuff you forgot you had (and realise you can’t live without it) and uncover a mountain of junk that should have been put out for the council clean-up five years ago. Routinely cleaning out your portfolio is no different from a spring clean of your home. You need to do it regularly and be ruthless.
If you put your companies through the wringer, deciding whether to buy, sell or hold should be simple.

When you consider Australia’s ageing population and how your portfolio can reap the benefits of baby boomers’ ballooning wealth, sometimes it pays to think outside the box. Baby boomers don’t need just housing and healthcare. Travel, wealth management, insurance and essential services are also high on their list of needs and wants.
Guided by Skaffold’s core principles of investing (solid balance sheet with minimal debt, strong profitability as measured by return on equity, rising earnings and strong cash flow) we logged into the online stock research tool to hunt for off-the-radar opportunities that appear set to benefit from a growing population of cashed-up retirees.
As you’ll discover, these stocks don’t rely solely on baby boomers for their success. Having diversity in their revenue streams, which is supported in part by a growing segment of the population, only helps strengthen their ability to expand their market share and produce rising earnings and profits year after year.

If you missed out on your copy of Money magazine this month, here are the best bits from Skaffold’s piece on the Top 50 and Top 5 Stocks for 2015.
Had you initially invested $50,000 and bought and sold the top-rated stocks each year since 2012, you’d be sitting on a portfolio worth just over $87,000. A remarkable result in just three years!
Each year’s five-stock portfolio was chosen using Skaffold’s digital stock research tool – embraced by thousands of private and professional investors – whose methodical approach isn’t influenced by opinion or bias.
