Whilst a newcomer to the market with a limited track record, Pioneer Credit (PNC) is a similar style of business and carries a similar Skaffold stock rating to Collection House (CLH).
The company has mainly traded in line with its IPO price of $1.60 since listing, but gained considerable support in August/September after delivering a strong full-year result. On a P/E basis, PNC is broadly in line with Collection House.
However, based on 2015-16 projections Pioneer appears to be a far better proposition with forecast intrinsic value growth of 33 per cent driven by earnings per share increasing from 15 cents to 20 cents over the next 12 months.

Collection House (ASX:CLH) provides debt collection services and receivables management to some of Australia’s largest companies, particularly those in the banking and financial services sector.
While Collection House’s balance sheet is rated A its business performance rating of only 4 (poor) suggests it may be a stock to steer clear of.
However, its compelling quality rating is underpinned by some very impressive metrics (and managements consistent guidance), suggests the stock may be worth considering as a turnaround proposition with the potential for its business performance rating to improve.

S&P announced changes to the ASX 20, ASX 200, ASX 300 and All Australian 50 and 200 today.
The mandates for some fund managers require them to hold a position in companies in one of the indexes. So as soon as a company’s moves into an index, all of a sudden its on the radar of dozens, possibly hundreds, of institutional fund managers controlling a large chunk of Australia’s superannuation pie.
For private investors, the S&P rebalance may represent an opportunity to secure your place in a business (only the best ones, of course), whose market capitalisation could be artificially pushed up by institutional shareholders scurrying to rebalance their portfolios.

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.

In the midst of ASX reporting season, it is easy to forget that global markets are also going through the same process.
Since 22 January 2014 hundreds of companies covered by Skaffold have released their interim or full year results.

New opportunities were thin on the ground this week, with the majority of companies to report experiencing deteriorating Skaffold Scores. Many stocks also continue to trade at large premiums to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimates.
After 6 years of membership in Skaffold’s premium group of companies, Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (DMP) has declined to B3.
This is a great example of Skaffold’s ability to demystify company results and present the facts of the case, so to speak.

The hallmark of successful value investing, proven by the undisputable success of Warren Buffett, is buying a company when its share price is considerably below its intrinsic value.
By value we mean intrinsic or ‘true’ value - the sum total of a business’s worth based on its earnings, dividends, equity and debt. How the business performs is after all how you as a shareholder make money.
When it comes to calculating intrinsic value, what is the right methodology to use? To help you successfully wade through the seemingly elusive art of valuing a company – drawn from certain assumptions about key financial information like profits, dividends or assets - here are some useful guidelines.
