For many of us, we grew up watching Disney cartoons - Mickey Mouse, Lion King, Snow White and the list goes on. Walt Disney produced its first cartoon in 1923, titled Alice’s Wonderland, and since then, the company grew from a humble cartoon studio into one of the largest media conglomerates in the world, with a market capitalisation of US$157B.

With the valuations of ASX-listed companies looking increasingly stretched, it’s more important than ever to use Skaffold’s filters to flag which stocks to avoid in 2014. The filters built into Skaffold stock research software help to remove stocks from your radar that aren’t regarded as investment grade – which by Skaffold’s measure is limited to stocks with an A1, A2 or B1 and B2 rating of balance sheet quality and business performance.
Removing ratings that don’t make the grade culls the stocks you should be seriously looking at down to around 160, which is only 10% of the 1,770 ASX-listed entities rated and evaluated by Skaffold’s automated algorithms.
Remember, even good stocks can and do lose their investment grade status for a myriad reasons, which surface following the release of interim and full year results.

While often overlooked by investors when analysing fundamentals, there’s no better insight into what’s left for you as a shareholder in a business once it’s paid all its bills than an analysis of cash flow. When it comes to assessing the investment quality of a company's cash flow, you should be attracted to those with sufficient money in the bank to fund their operations and produce an ongoing Funding Surplus. The greater a company’s Funding Surplus the more likely it is to avoid excessive borrowing, expand its business, pay dividends and withstand any economic downturns.
You need to be wary of well-known large-caps with unhealthy cash positions which may still attract uninformed investors due to their size. High profile stocks with large debt and poor cash flow – which contributes to poor Skaffold Scores - include: Sonic Healthcare (SHL), Seven Group Holdings (SVW), James Hardie Industries (JHX), Toll Holdings (TOL), Oil Search (OSH), Woodside Petroleum (WPL), Leighton Holdings (LEI), Asciano (AIO), Duet Group (DUE), Tabcorp Holdings (TAH), Transurban (TCL), Brambles (BXB), Origin Energy (ORG), SP AusNet (SPN), APA Group (APA) and Sydney Airport Holdings (SYD).

More than 50% of the companies listed on the ASX will report their full-year results next month. You can review your portfolio by checking the cash position of the ones you hold and removing those that don’t display high-quality economics. Skaffold has put together a list of large, well-known companies with unhealthy cash positions. Despite having market caps of at least $2 billion, their generally high debt and poor cash flow contribute to Skaffold Scores of B4, B5, C1, C2, C3, C4 or C5.
