Deep Value for the patient investor

With heady gains on the JSE since March 2009, one wonders if there is any deep-value issues left out there for the cheapskates among us. Things are invariably cheap for a reason, so the next question is whether there is any deep value out there (neglected stocks) that have sound financials (margin of safety). The answer is "yes" but these shares are invariably not highlyliquid and due to their neglected status, patience is required for the market to realise their value. Below is a printout from our JSW program that finds classic Piotroski Value stocks - shares that are priced at signficant discount (PVM column)on a P/E,Price/Book and Price/Cashflow basis, but that have high Piotroski scores (8 and 9) for financial health.

The list is further filtered to show only shares that trade at least 10 times per day, and is sorted by market capitalisation. If you look at the "HI" column under "% Price Change" you can see how much lower the share is trading than its 3 month high. Deep value is one thing - timing your purchase is another. BEL is showing strong signs of recovery, having made new 5,10 and 20 day highs recently. TPC is interesting as it has shown consistant EPS growth over the last 4 years (8 reporting periods) and has consistantly increased dividend payouts by 22% CAGR for the last 7 years running. Its current yield of over 5% coupled with its valuation makes it an attractive punt for the long term. You can read about Piotroski Value Investing and our real-world tests (with real money) of this style of investing on the JSE over at this link on our website
