How to invest in value stocks

first_imgHow to invest in value stocks Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Value stocks have often been favoured by those who are happy to go against the grain, and enjoy investing in stocks that are considerably disliked by the market. This is because value investors believe that if everyone hates a stock, then there is no optimism included in the price, which means there is a certain level of potential upside when the market sentiment eventually returns the stock to favour.Value investing has been made famous by Benjamin Graham, often called the father of value investing, and the teacher of a certain Warren Buffett. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Benjamin Graham believed that a good stock to invest in should have a ‘margin of safety’ that would protect the investor from material downside. His idea requires buying a stock for less than the sum of its parts, or its book value. Value will always eventually be recognised, however, the investor must be prepared to wait for the catalysts that will unlock the value, or for market sentiment to turn in the stock’s favour. One problem of value investing is that it requires patience.Buying a stock for below net asset valueTo identify a stock that is trading below its net asset value we need to study the balance sheet and work out the total value of the assets, and the total value of the liabilities. This is often totalled already for us on the balance sheet and so it is a simple case of subtracting liabilities from assets. If the number is negative, then that means there is no net asset value and we have net liabilities instead. We want to avoid those stocks, because if we want to value invest there must be some value existing!One thing to be careful of when looking at net asset value is that assets can both be tangible and intangible. Tangible assets are things such as cash, property, and machinery, whereas intangible assets can be the value of a brand or intellectual property. This, of course, is subject to management discretion.Look for net tangible asset valueBy stripping out intangible assets, we are left with a net tangible asset value, which is the sum of everything that exists and is real. This gives us an even bigger margin of safety, because ultimately something intangible is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. Of course, that is also true of tangible assets – but at least they have a generally agreed-upon intrinsic value.Check the depreciation policyWhen looking at tangible assets, it is important to check the company’s depreciation policy. For example, if we bought a new car, we would not expect to be able to sell it five years later for the same amount. Something must be deducted for the wear-and-tear on the vehicle. This change in value is accounted for on a company’s books by depreciating the asset over the course of its useful life. Make sure that the depreciation policy is realistic.When investing in value stocks, we must always check the balance sheet carefully.  See all posts by Michael Taylor I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The ASOS share price is up 75% in 2 days! Here’s what I’d do

The ASOS (LSE: ASC) share price jumped more than 30% this morning, after it announced a successful £247m share placing to help it weather the Covid-19 pandemic. That was on top of a 34% jump yesterday as it reported a positive set of results.Investors who used the stock market crash to buy bargain FTSE stocks like this one will be celebrating today. However, I’d think carefully before buying into the ASOS share price now.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The online fashion retailer should be making hay right now, as a bored nation sits at home with time on its hands, scrolling away.Is this FTSE stock a crashing buy?The problem is that the coronavirus crisis and stock market crash is hitting people right in the pocket, and many will be cutting back on discretionary purchases like new clothes. Now isn’t the time to splash the cash and flaunt yourself. Even if the police would let you.Management thrilled investors by reporting record interim pre-tax profits on Tuesday, up 653% to £30.1m, with revenue rising 21% to £1.6bn. The group also cut costs and saw a healthy increase in its active customer base, hence the surge in the ASOS share price.International sales rose an impressive 22% to £974.3m. Foreign markets now contribute more than the UK, where sales climbed 20% to £577.1m. I’m pleased to see it expanding successfully overseas, which should provide scale and diversification. No wonder the ASOS share price is flying right now.ASOS share price has struggledThese six-month results ended on 29 February, before the Covid-19 lockdown, so the next set will not be so pretty. You knew that anyway. Group sales fell by up to a range of 20% to 25% in the three most recent trading weeks.The ASOS share price was struggling long before we had even heard of the coronavirus. Last autumn, the so-called King of AIM crashed by 40% after a significant deterioration in trading, which it blamed on economic uncertainty and weaker consumer confidence. We didn’t know the meaning of those phrases in those far-off days!If it wasn’t for the coronavirus lockdown, instead of crashing, the ASOS share price could be on a high right now.Crashing FTSE stock opportunityToday’s share placing success has boosted confidence in its ability to survive. However, broker Liberum questioned whether ASOS has raised enough cash and also criticised it for “poor” disclosure, given the risks right now.I’m afraid I wouldn’t recommend buying in to the ASOS share price after the recent surge. Fast fashion still faces plenty of challenges, as we don’t know how long the lockdown will last, or the long-term impact on people’s shopping habits.Also, we are going to see the mother of all clearance sales once Covid-19 abates, which could press down on retail prices and hit cash generation. The long-term recovery in the ASOS share price could prove agonisingly slow. See all posts by Harvey Jones Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

How I’d invest in an ISA to start earning a passive income today

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Earning a passive income by investing money in a Stocks and Shares ISA could be an attractive option at the present time. After all, the stock market crash has caused many dividend shares across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to trade at low prices. As a result, they offer high dividend yields in many cases.At the same time, low interest rates mean income returns on cash and bonds are at extremely low levels. Similarly, high house prices mean that buy-to-let investment offers low yields.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse selection of UK dividend shares for the long run.Investing in dividend shares to earn a passive incomeThe FTSE 100 currently offers a passive income of around 4.7% per year. That’s significantly higher than the sub-1% returns available on most cash savings accounts. It’s also likely to be higher than the yields on investment grade bonds. And also the net return available on buy-to-let property while UK house prices are at record highs.However, simply buying high-yielding dividend shares in an ISA may not necessarily maximise an investor’s income returns. Some higher-yielding shares may be struggling to afford their dividend payouts. They may be experiencing challenging operating conditions that are negatively impacting on their financial performances.Therefore, it’s important to ensure that any dividend shares purchased in an ISA offer a sustainable passive income. For example, checking how many times they can pay dividends with net profit, as well as their balance sheet strength, could lead to a more resilient income stream in the long run.Investing money to build a diverse ISA of dividend stocksEven selecting those FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares that have solid dividends doesn’t guarantee a resilient passive income. Unexpected events can occur to any company operating in any industry. Therefore, it’s crucial to build an ISA portfolio that contains a diverse range of companies operating in a number of different industries.Diversification not only reduces the risk of being over-reliant on a small number of stocks for an income return. It also provides access to a wider range of growth opportunities. This may lead to a stronger rate of dividend growth over the long run that produces a more attractive passive income within an ISA.Starting to invest money todayClearly, the 2020 stock market crash may dissuade some investors from buying shares in an ISA for a passive income. However, the track record of equity markets suggests that a long-term stock market and economic recovery seems likely. As such, now could be the right time to buy a selection of high-yielding stocks from across both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. That way you can enjoy a growing income return in the coming years.

Will New Reverse Mortgage Policies Reverse Concerns?

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Will New Reverse Mortgage Policies Reverse Concerns? Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Reverse mortgages have the potential to become more popular as more households with insufficient income reach retirement, according to a study done by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College.Despite the possibility for increased popularity of reverse mortgages, or HECMs (Home Equity Conversion Mortgages), concerns have risen over an increased default rate for borrowers.To respond to the concerns, the report states that HUD, starting in 2013, began restricting initial withdrawals as well as introducing criteria for underwriting. With these policy changes, property taxes as well as insurance default could potentially reduce by 50 percent.The report states one of the concerns about implementing underwriting criteria is that it could significantly reduce the take-up of loans, therefore possibly conflicting with the program’s public mission to balance the goals of high take-up rates as well as low default rates.However, the simulated impact of credit-based underwriting standards on these loans’ take-up is estimated to be minimal, especially when such standards are paired with a required set-aside for tax and insurance payments instead of a hard cutoff.The report states that the collective impact of both policies could reduce take-up by 12 percent attributed to the restrictions on the initial withdrawal amount instead of the underwriting criteria. Yet, this impact on take-up is relatively minuscule for a larger reduction in estimated defaults.In order to assess the effects of the new rules, the report used a “unique” data-set linking borrower characteristics to their loan activity and the results showed that the new rules could reduce default rates by up to 50 percent while having only a small impact on take-up.Additionally, the study relied on data that compared a variety of borrowers on a large scale. The data found concluded that newer policies are helping reduce default rates across the board.Though, only 2 percent of older Americans who qualify currently hold a reverse mortgage, it has been projected that demand for these home loans in the past five years has exponentially increased.
