Payout Ratios.

September 16, 2015 – Comments (0)

I do not believe even income oriented investors should buy stocks with payout ratios higher than 20-25%. Such high ratios can end up forcing the company to go deeper into debt than is healthy which is not good whatever one's investment goal may be. Ergo I will rarely, if ever, green thumb such stocks and may end picks if the payout ratio goes that high for whatever reason. 



Red Thumbs.

September 12, 2015 – Comments (1)

In future I plan to red thumb mostly stocks with market caps above $1,000,000,000. Such stocks, IMO, appeal mostly to people who mistake size for safety. I if anything, may be prone to the opposite mistake of mistaking size for overvaluation, but I am vain enough to believe I don't make that mistake very often. Less often than I once did anyway. 



Free Cash Flow.

I intend in future to green thumb only stocks the "ratios" page says have positive free cash flows and lower than industry average P/FCFs. Other stocks will get red thumbs idf I pick them at all.
