It has been portfolio cleanup time, which means saying goodbye to some stocks and hello to others.
A bunch of beaten-up value names registered double-digit percentage gains last week; we'll see if the rally can continue.
What is most fascinating in this index-investing based world is the amount of variability and inefficiency that still exists.
It was not a great year for this value portfolio, with only 5 stocks in positive territory for the year.
These 3 value names reported very ugly quarterly earnings.
This mix of 20 deep-value names was outperforming a couple Russell indices three months back but is trailing them now.
Two other value names, Kulicke & Soffa and FreightCar America, draw mixed reactions after posting results.
The parent of Applebee's and IHOP beat on the bottom line but missed on the top line in the second quarter.
This portfolio of 10 eclectic names has pushed higher since the start of 2018 and is up 40.5% since inception just 14 months ago.
Fossil Group has done most of the heavy lifting among the small stocks in the portfolio, though there are other winners, too.
As usual, it's been a mixed bag in the convoluted world of value.
FOSL is up 92% since I launched this group, while HIBB is ahead 27%.
This 'motley crew' of value is not for the faint of heart.
I lament the fact that one of my favorite deep value hunting grounds is nearly devoid of possibilities.
It is always important see how such value screens perform in times of market stress.
The Double-Net Dividend portfolio has been a success so far and it's largely due to a beaten-down sector.
One month in, 15 out of 20 names are in positive territory, with Fossil Group soaring 39%.
The 20 companies in this portfolio could be of interest to deep-value investors.
Overall it was a good year for this somewhat off the wall screen that I developed several years ago as a way to find seemingly cheap companies.
Hibbett Sports, Zoe's Kitchen, Biglari Holdings and Fitbit have pulled their weight among my five value plays.
Electro Scientific Industries leads a parade of value stocks that have performed quite nicely in a growth-oriented market.
Shares of both companies took hits on Thursday after they posted their latest quarterly numbers.
The five stocks are up an average of nearly 10% over the last month, but barely are outperforming small-caps in general.
Companies trading at low multiples to net current asset value can be compelling to acquirers -- here are some names to consider.
Despite the disparity this year between growth and value, my 2017 Double Net Value Portfolio is not struggling.
Fitbit, Hibbett Sports, Zoe's Kitchen and Biglari Holdings all have struggled, with only FreightCar America in positive territory for the year.
Double-Net Dividend stocks, which some would call misfits, doing OK so far.
