3 High-Return Guru Stocks Trading Below the GF Value Line

GuruFocus has just lately made the GuruFocus Truthful Benefit Line, a exclusive method of estimating the intrinsic benefit of a inventory. Setting up off of the well-liked Peter Lynch chart, which compares a stock’s present cost to how considerably its earnings for every share would be really worth if it traded at a cost-earnings ratio of 15, the GF Benefit Line seeks to take more than cost by itself into account when trying to decide benefit. This new metric considers the following three classes of info:

  • Historic cost-earnings, cost-book, cost-product sales and cost-to-absolutely free money flow ratios.
  • A GuruFocus adjustment variable based on the company’s previous returns and progress.
  • Future estimates of the business’ overall performance.

GuruFocus end users can now use the All-in-Just one Screener to display screen for stocks based on how their present share charges compare to the intrinsic benefit estimated by the GF Benefit Line. If the ratio of the cost to the GF Benefit Line is less than 1, the inventory is likely to be undervalued.
