Green shoots

As of yesterday, which liquid (actively traded) JSE shares with reasonable valuations (according to P/E, P/Book) had fallen at least 10% in this last correction and were now making new 1-week highs (5-day breakouts), and had just (within last 3 days) crossed their 5-day and 10-day moving averages? Our clients answered this question yesterday morning with two mouse clicks to reveal the below interesting basket of diversified shares:

LEWIS is interesting for patient investors as it is trading at 16% discount ("HI" column) to its last high and (you cant see on this chart due to width restrictions of the picture) it has a "D" in its CONSISTENCY column since it is a consistant dividend payer, having posted ever-increasing uninterrupted dividends of 19% per annum growth for the last 5 years (10 reporting periods). One could argue its current 4.9% yield is almost "in the bag" so to speak. It is one thing buying good shares at discounted prices, but it is even better if they have solid dividends and/or earnings-per-share growth records.

We track the earnings per share (EPS, Revenue, and dividends-per-share (DPS)growth track records of each JSE share going back 11 years and that group of shares that have shown at least 5 years dividend or earnings (or both) growth consistancy as a group, outperform the index comfortably for both capital appreciation and dividends. As you can see from the above list as but one exmaple, these desirable characteristics are not necessarily the domain of large-cap shares only.

If this style of intelligent share selection interests you then look at our demo videos over here.
