Joel Greenblatt - The Little Book That Beats The Market

In his book, Greenblatt presents a “Magic Formula” for buying good companies at good prices. These concepts – good company and good price – are represented by two ratios from companies’ financial statements: Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) represents “good company”, and & Earnings Yield represents “good price”. The book itself presents a lucid, simple explanation of investing in the stock market. Unlike many who write about investing in stocks and offer formulas for success, Greenblatt is remarkably honest in his discussion of the difficulty of beating the market and remarkably modest in his claims.

The stocks in our microcap Model Portfolios might get caught up in the capitulative mayhem in a macro sense, but we know that their growth outlooks, combined with their cheap valuations, will make for a recovery that we think will blow the pants off of their mega cap counterparts when this new cloud of dust settles.  To distill it down just a tad, it’s easier to double a $10 or $20 million revenue base than to double a greater than billion dollar valuation. Furthermore, the potential drop in stock prices of these large companies is steep. They’ve already grown to near their max potential but many still have P/Es in excess of 50x to 100x, or non-applicable P/Es because they’re losing money, which in a literal sense means there is no bottom to the stock’s price until you get to the value of ip, customer base, plants, property and equipment. It won’t take much for the latter to crumble, nor will it take much for the former to excel. Now, we believe the pendulum has swung to where earnings and P/E ratios will matter again. Hopefully, it will be the dominating factor in valuing companies as we transition from this bear market into the next bull trend. That’s how the environment was set up for the first 20 years of my career, where high-quality undervalued microcap companies were in high demand.

How Bullish Trends in the IT Staffing Industry Could Help Rcm Technologies, Inc. (RCMT)

April 12th, 2022|0 Comments

A key take away from the RCMT conference call is that the demand for outsourced staffing growth trends is ripping higher, particularly in the IT and pharma markets. And quite honestly, this makes perfect sense. The U.S. is sitting at its lowest unemployment rate since late 1960’s, wages are increasing, the percent of the population over 55 is growing, the work from home and GIG trends (propensity to not seek full-time employment) are changing things up, immigration to the U.S. is at a low point and the participation rate of people actually looking for jobs is rapidly falling.
