7 Large-cap Industrial Stocks with High Growth Rates, Low Valuations and Above-average Dividend Yields

Companies / Investing 2012 Apr 16, 2012 - 10:21 AM GMT

Companies

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article screened the industrial sector searching for companies that offer above-average forecast earnings growth of 15% to 20% or better that could be purchased at an attractive valuation.  Although each of these companies pays a dividend, due to the cyclical nature of this industry we encourage the reader to carefully review the dividend history on each individual company.

The following table summarizes seven large-cap Industrials that appear to be attractively valued, and lists them in order of Estimated EPS Growth order. From left to right, the table shows the company’s stock symbol and name. Next, two valuation metrics are listed side-by-side, the current PE ratio followed by the historical normal PE ratio for perspective.  The final four columns show the current dividend yield, estimated EPS Growth, debt and company sector.

A Closer Look at the Past and the Future Potential

Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we’ll take a closer look at the past performance and future potential of each of our five candidates through the lens of F.A.S.T. Graphs™.

Earnings Determine Market Price: The following earnings and price correlated historical graphs clearly illustrates the importance of earnings. The Earnings Growth Rate Line or True Worth™ Line (orange line with white triangles) is correlated with the historical stock price line. On graph after graph the lines will move in tandem. If the stock price strays away from the earnings line (over or under), inevitably it will come back to earnings. The historical normal PE ratio line (dark blue line with*) depicts a PE ratio that the market has historically applied.

The orange True Worth™ line and the blue normal PE ratio line provide perspectives on valuation.  The orange line reflects the fair value of each company’s earnings relative to its growth rate achievement, and the blue line reflects how the market has traditionally valued the company’s stock relative to its fair value. The blue line represents a trimmed historical normal PE ratio (the highest and lowest PEs are trimmed).  These lines should be viewed as barometers or aids for ascertaining sound buy, sell or hold decisions. Rather than seen as absolutes, they should be seen as guides to better thinking.

Summary and Conclusions

The industrial sector can be thought of as a semi-cyclical industry.  However, when companies are coming out of trough earnings, they can often generate significant growth for several years.  The companies listed in this article are forecast to grow at above-average rates for the foreseeable future.  More importantly, based on those forecasts, they appear to be trading at price earnings ratios that are lower than the estimated growth rate.  Consequently, if they achieve the growth rates as expected, they will represent an excellent opportunity at least for the intermediate term.
