Buy Dell at a discount
This morning on Barchart I wanted to find stocks having current price momentum that were selling at a big discount to their normal Price/Earnings ratio and noticed Dell (DELL) sold at an 18.0 Price/Earnings ratio over the past 16 year and is now at a 9.4 P/E ratio. That sounds like a discount to me. The price momentum has held steady during the current market down turn.
Barchart technical indicators:
1 - 48% Barchart overall technical buy signal
2 - Trend spotter buy signal
3 - Above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages
4 - 8 new highs and up .95% in the last month
5 - Up 5.84% in the last trailing 3 month
6 - Relative Strength Index 50.22%
7 - Trading around 15.94 which is above its 50 day moving average of 15.84
Summary: As the economy recovers and stocks return to their trailing P/E ratios Dell (DELL) looks like a prime candidate to give long term investors an annual total return in the neighborhood of 19 % - 23% over the next 5 year. In this market when I'm not sure what will happen from day to day I'd like to have stocks that have positive projection of increases in both sales and earnings.
