HFWR Value Portfolio

Subtitle: Dart-Throwing With Stock-screener
Sub-subtitle: Slow Day at the Silicon Mine...

As noted above, I am stuck at w*** on Labor Day (ironic, isn't it?) with not much to do. So I've pulled some stock symbols out of my ass carefully constructed created a portfolio of, for lack of a better term, "value" stocks, based strictly on the output of the Yahoo Stock Screener, using the following criterii:

Market cap => $10B
P/E <= 10
PEG => 2
P/B <= 2

This gave me a list of five stocks: AZ, E, NTT, APC, and IP.

I then built a spreadsheet, to devise three portfolios, each based on a different weighting method: price weighting (9/1 price), cap weighting, and P/E weighting (inverse).

Then, for shits and grins kicks, I created portfolios that can be tracked by anyone bored enough to do so:

Reminds me of when I got bored at work. I studied different retirement portfolios only using mutual funds and ETF's.

How much longer before you retire?

I suppose we need a benchmark for comparison; how about VTV?

Yahoo sometimes gets the number wrong. I chose E in another thread, but it turns out Yahoo is way off on market cap (and P/B, etc). I noticed a few of your other picks were ADRs, so I wouldn't be surprised if Yahoo was wrong on a few of them.

I concur, but I'd opine that no "free" stock screener can be fully trusted...

Edit/update: I was going to compare screens from different sources, but excite no longer has a screener, bloomburg has no screener, and CNBC's screener doesn't offer PEG ratio as a criteria...

Since the username and pw are known, anyone who wants to add a portfolio can do so.

I've decided to alter my portfolio to match Greg's model portfolio at Gentlemen's Stock Picking Club...

I'm still using the mechanical monkey method, i.e. Yahoo stock screener, warts and all. Mkt cap => 50B, P/E <= 10, P/B <= 2, which, oddly enough, gives me ten stocks exactly...

AZ is an ADR. Does that affect how something like Yahoo spits out p/e? I wouldn't think so, but just wondering.

I should have bought at the start of the month... employee purchase price is 25% off.

Not sure, but see Wab's Twaddle's caveat about Yahoo...

Yahoo seems to be OK wrt AZ. On a few other ADR's, they blow the number of shares outstanding, which throws off their market cap, P/E, and P/B calculations.
