US Fundamental Stocks

8 Nov 2019
By Rivkin Securities
Rivkin's fundamental scan is based on a process for evaluating a universe of stocks based on its published financial statements. The ranking is based on two main fundamental criteria: 1. Sustainability of Earnings 2. Return on Capital Employed.

The stocks in the below table are the result of applying Rivkin’s fundamental ranking system to the S&P 500 universe of stocks. The top 15 stocks from this system are shown. This fundamental screen forms the basis for our US Value strategy that is offered as part of our premium subscription Strategies. We believe the stocks in the below table have specific favourable fundamental characteristics, in particular, sustainable earnings and a good return on capital employed. Sustainable earnings are an essential characteristic for a long-term investment as it makes it likely that the company will achieve a steady earnings stream rather than experiencing significant fluctuations in year-to-year results. The return on capital employed is a measure of how efficiently a company can generate a profit from the resources it has at its disposal. For an investor, a higher profit using fewer resources is a more desirable situation than a smaller profit with more resources. These two criteria are combined to produce a list of stocks that we think have favourable prospects.
