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.

The past 12 months or so have seen a record number of floats on the sharemarket.
With about $14 billion worth of initial public offerings over the past year, it is the biggest year since the GFC for bringing companies to market.
In the main, investors have been well rewarded. Of the bigger listings, catering and cleaning business Spotless Group, the credit reporting business Veda Group, Genworth Mortgage Insurance Australia and Healthscope, the hospital, medical centre and pathology operator, have share prices trading significantly above their float prices.

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.
