Chris Batchelor shared his tips on how to use stock tips and how he uses Skaffold to find high growth stocks with AFR Smart Investor.

We had the great pleasure of interviewing financial journalist Trevor Hoey at Skaffold’s recent webinar. Trevor gave us his insights on what sort of things he looks out for when researching into the next hidden gem of the future. With a focus on small to mid cap companies, this post of a three part series focuses on the red flags and dangers and also what to look out for when searching for hidden gems of the future.

It’s not rocket science. If you invest in the US and the A$ falls 10 per cent against the greenback, you’ll receive an extra 10 per cent return when you eventually bring your money home. The same can also be said for those investing locally in stocks that derive a good chunk of their income from foreign earnings.
Established healthcare businesses, many of which have substantial operations outside Australia, like CSL Ltd, and consumer discretionary stocks benefit from a weaker Aussie dollar, due partly to segmented pricing which makes local retailers more competitive relative to overseas online stores.
As a rule of thumb, a 10 per cent drop in the A$ adds around 3 per cent to corporate earnings.
To determine the A$ impact on earnings, find out the percentage of profits generated from the company’s international operations and apply the change in currency to this proportion of profits.

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.

You need to tread carefully when using a price earnings ratio (P/E) and dividend yield to gauge how attractive bank stocks might be. That’s because bad debts or one-off items can compromise the sustainability of bank dividends.
So it’s important to understand that banks require some peculiar evaluation criteria when it comes to assessing their intrinsic value and business performance. If you do want to call on the price earnings ratio to help value and compare one bank stock against another, then it must be used alongside some bank-specific financial ratios.
Whilst some valuation principles are equally applicable to all companies, there are a number of complications specific to banks such as determining leverage – due to being both borrower and lender - regulatory impact, capital expenditure and interest margins.
The key financial ratios you need to look at when evaluating banks and estimating their intrinsic value are net interest margin, cost to income ratio, bad debts, return on assets, Tier 1 capital ratio and the price to book ratio.

With reporting season now complete (except for the very small mining companies), let’s take a look at what opportunities Skaffold identified over the last four weeks, and how those stocks have performed.
The three standout stocks this reporting season, which we wrote about in blog posts and weekly reporting season update emails, are Titan Energy Services (TTN), RCR Tomilson (RCR) and MGM Wireless (MWR). TTN’s share price is up 32%, RCR 19% and MGM Wireless 37%.
As a wrap up to a successful reporting season, here’s a summary of the stocks that came to our attention over the past month. Aside from TTN, RCR and MWR, at the time of initial writing all the stocks listed below were trading at a premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate.
In order of appearance, and with previously published comments, this year’s interesting stocks were…

Since April 2011 Newcrest Mining (NCM) shareholders have been punished with a falling share price that has declined from more than $42.50 to $9.30. NCM released its full year results on 12 August. Revenues decreased 15% and the company reported Net Profit After Taxes of $5.78 billion. These poor results and less than impressive business performance resulted in NCM’s Skaffold’s Score falling from B3 to C4. A company rated C4 is not considered investment grade by Skaffold.
Financial results for Cochlear (COH), JB Hi-Fi (JBH), Tabcorp (TAH) and Coffey International (COF) are now available in Skaffold.
