If you’re on the hunt for value stocks to buy, you’ve come to the right place.
In an ode to Ben Graham, arguably the father of investing, I’m going to pull together a list of 10 stocks trading below book value that I believe will appreciate over the next 12 to 24 months.
However, it’s not going to be easy.
I came across an online Barron’s article that discussed the difficulty of buying stocks below book value, as Graham did back in his prime.
Michael Green, portfolio manager at Moody Aldrich Partners “notes that just 6% of New York Stock Exchange companies now trade under book value, versus 25% in March 2000, when the major averages peaked (Green excludes closed-end and bond funds in making this calculation.),” Andrew Bary wrote in 2004.
“Cheap stocks actually were more plentiful during the market bubble than they are now, due to the narrow breadth of the technology-led market advance in 1999 and early 2000. Over the past 75 years, low price-book stocks on the Big Board were most abundant at the historic market bottoms of 1932 and 1975.”
