This is Retail Food Group’s tenth year as a listed company, and while its market capitalisation has grown substantially from a sub-$100 million entity to approximately $770 million, the group’s strategy for success remains unchanged. Yesterday (27 October 2014) the company announced it had acquired of Gloria Jeans Coffees. RFG has consistently demonstrated its ability to identify good value acquisitions that can add value to the existing business. Integration has for the best part been seamless and this is evidenced in the company’s sustained profit growth.

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.

If Domino’s Pizza Enterprise’s (DMP) result last week proves anything to investors it’s the danger of first impressions, and while they arguably count, they’re not always as good as they appear. Despite being slightly short of market consensus forecasts, DMP's share price jumped over 12% following headline reports of its 38.8% increase in interim underlying net profit after tax (NPAT) of $20.2 million, plus upbeat commentary around new store roll-out plans.
After one-off costs of $2.7 million, Domino’s bottom line net profit was up 28.2% to $18.6 million. But once Skaffold’s automated engine sufficiently scratched behind the top-line numbers, the stock research tool had cause to downgrade it from an A2 to a B3 rating, and as such the pizza retailer is not currently regarded as an investment grade stock - which is exclusive to A1, A2, B1 and B2-rated stocks.

Despite popular belief, debt is by no means a dirty word when it comes to running a business. Indeed some businesses effectively utilise debt to accelerate growth.
But if the managers of your businesses don’t effectively manage the level of borrowings, they can easily undermine the overall value of your share investment portfolio.
Figuring out whether a company is self-funded or relies on external funding (a la debt) - after factoring in its operations, investments and financing - isn’t a simple exercise. Here are 4 key financial ratios you can use to understand if a business is self-funding and how it funds it dividends.

Seek Limited (SEK) has ended the 2013 financial year with more than $184 million cash in bank, improving the quality of its balance sheet and lifting its Skaffold Quality Score from B to A. Unfortunately the increase in total shareholders equity, coupled with higher debt, did not result in a material uplift in NPAT and SEK’s return on equity fell from close to 40% in 2012 to 24%, as at 30 June 2013. SEK is now rated A2 by Skaffold.
Companies to report improving business performance over the last six months include vitamin developer Blackmores (BKL), wealth management business SFG Australia (SFW), software developers Objective Corporation (OCL) and Prophecy International Holdings (PRO).

Overnight safety margins for more than 60% of ASX-listed companies updated. Why? For companies with a 30 June report date, Skaffold calculated the safety margin based on the 2013 intrinsic value forecast. Last night, as we moved into the 2014 financial year, the safety margin calculation switched over to the 2014 forecast intrinsic value estimate.
As at 28 June 2013 close of trade, 127 companies were trading at a discount to Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate. Today 134 companies are trading at a discount. Of those, 96 are covered by analysts.

CMI Limited (CMI) has rejoined the A1 club. Competitor ARB Corp (ARP) is also rated A1 by Skaffold. Whilst ARB’s business model is focused on the manufacture and distribution of 4x4 accessories for recreational 4WD vehicles, CMI’s expands beyond 4WD accessories to include specialist cabling and electrical products for a range of industry sectors that includes light commercial and heavy transport vehicles. Unfortunately both companies are trading at prices higher than Skaffold’s intrinsic value estimate.
