Nov 22, 2013 Benchmark Investing (BI) Selections
There is but one stock to discuss this week. However, I made no changes to my portfolio. Here is a snapshot of this week’s activities.
This week’s candidates:
PDCO (Patterson) http://caps.fool.com/Ticker/PDCO.aspx– a Long position held for more than year now. The company’s earnings performance has been well masked well by share buybacks. As it continues to be a strong cash generator share buybacks will continue. Decision: Hold
Every week a refresh of key financial data, stock prices, and economic data are evaluated. This information is analyzed using Kenneth Lee's selection process as described in “Trouncing the Down". Individual stocks are selected based on their relative valuation. The systematic approach allows for a scientific based decision making to buy and sell stocks. This mechanical investing approach has proven to yield superior results over time.
Each week a broad set of stocks are considered to be bought, sold, or held as part of the process. Also indicated is if the pick is a Long or Short candidate as well as if it they are New or Current holdings.
Tickers discussed this week: PDCO
