KUDOS TO Kenneth Ng, CFA, of CIMB-GK for coming up with a shortlist of stocks that look great to buy during this market slump.
In a report yesterday (July 16), he wrote that “we sieve through our stock coverage avoiding: 1) stocks with poor liquidity (less than S$400m market cap); and 2) stocks with deteriorating earnings prospects or high gearings.”
From CIMB-GK's screening of stocks in its universe of coverage emerged companies that appear to provide great value once the worst is over, wrote Kenneth.
The stocks were categorized as follows:
1. Lowest CY08 P/E
2. Lowest CY09 P/E
3. Lowest CY08 P/RNAV
4. Lowest CY08 P/BV
“Rare are the times when an investor can buy a good business at a bargain price. Rare are the breed of investors who can act when value stares at them, in the face,” wrote Kenneth.
