3-4 P/E stocks

Recommended Posts

Hi All and Merry Christmas!

 

Is anyone involved currently with stocks in the 3-4 P/E range with some growth, good balance sheets and into a stable industry?

 

One that I like very much is Bri-Chem Corporation or BRY in Canada. It meets the P/E range that I mentioned, although being a distributor, the balance sheet is levered. It also has the issue of distributing drilling fluids which will definitely be in lesser demand over coming months with cuts from producers in their capex budgets from 25 to 75%. Although, with their sale this Summer of their steel business, they are in acquisition mode which bodes well longer term.

 

Anyway looking forward to your ideas.

There are only two places in know where you can find stock that cheap and growing, S. Korean preferreds and HK real estate hold cos.  Some the S. Korean preferred at that price include: Lotte Chilsung, Taeyoung E&C, Daelim Industries, Nexen Corp, BYC, Sebang Corp., Daesang Holdings and Doosan Holdings.  Some the HK Real Estate hold cos include: Shun Ho Resources, Asia Standard, Lai Sun Garment, CSI and Allied Holdings.  If you want to pay-up to 5x or 6x earnings pretty much most of the CA regional banks in France are in that range.

 

Another 2 in NA are Alliance Healthcare (AIQ) and Awilco Drilling (AWLCF).

There's CTC Media (CTCM).  It's a Russian based company though.  But the industry is fairly stable.  Even if Russia goes into a recession, people will still watch TV and get bombarded with ads.  Half of the earnings are distributed as dividends so you do get paid while waiting for things to get better.  Of course, you have to put up with a crazy dictator so there's that risk.  But it's cheap, profitable, good balance sheet, and growing.

Texhong, potentially 2.5x earnings. competent manager not out raping minority holders .If cotton prices stabilize, it could go up a lot. There still seems to be a large spread which will not go away in the near future. Dividend, and normal earnings again are catalyst.

ESI has a 10-year average net income of $7.5 and is trading at $10 (was at $4 for a few months). The co is poised to start hitting an upwards trend in a couple years with its reform initiatives. Crazy valuation gap should start closing when SEC issues get cleared out. Even at $30-40 the stock would still be traded at a very conservative valuation.

 

 

I swear I end up talking about this co in every thread I enter... Too bad nobody else has much interest  :'(

The question is what will be it's net income, going forward...

 

 

(I haven't researched the idea, but based off of your post, why should 10-year avg net income matter, given how the industry has been in a flux since the last few years...?)

It's just to show how cheap it trades now compared to how it has performed in the past. You won't find this kind of discrepency anywhere else. The co will end up doing better or worse than this average, but will not deviate by an incredibly large margin. Will not pump out 500mil year in year out but will not do 10mil either, let alone run sustained losses. Current run rate normalized EBIT and cash flows are both about 80-100mil currently, I think the co will end up doing much better shortly with the housekeeping that's going on but that's my opinion.

NWH.AX trades at an estimated forward P/E of 3-7 and at 33% of net asset value with high uncertainty. But i wouldn`t say that the mining service industry in australia is stable at the moment.  ;D

Whats interesting is that they were kicked out of the ASX100 and ASX200 in the last quarter, so there was a lot of forced selling pressure. They traded at net asset value before that started.

Itt Educational Services, Enviromental Clean Technologies, Esi Group? Which ESI? What's the thesis, can you share?

 

Educational services. Thesis is simple, market believes the company will shut down but it's not going to happen. Not a single party involved in this situation would benefit. The most likely scenario is that ESI will be forced to play nice and be useful again. Which is what is already happening, albeit at very early stage. The only question is whether the co will be able to sustain through further fines and settlements. Currently in good position to do so.
