Number Cruncher Extra – Seeking wealth creators among U.S. consumer discretionary stocks

31 Jul 2019

In this week’s filter created for The Globe and Mail, we screened for wealth creators in the US consumer discretionary sector. We are looking for improving performance and comparing it to the premium or discount the market has attributed to those companies. We screened the S&P 500 Consumer Discretionary stock universe by focusing on the following criteria:

  • Market capitalization above US$10-billion;
  • A current economic performance index (EPI) equal to or greater than one – this ratio is the return on capital to cost of capital. It gives shareholders an idea of how much return the company is generating on each dollar spent;
  • A positive 12-month EPI change – this measures the growth in return on capital versus cost of capital over the past 12 months;
  • A future-growth-value-to-market-value ratio (FGV/MV) between 50 per cent and minus 50 per cent. We chose this range to eliminate stocks that trade at an exaggerated premium or discount as that would increase the risk. This ratio represents the proportion of the market value of the company that is made up of future growth expectations rather than the actual profit generated. The higher the percentage, the higher the baked-in premium for expected growth and the higher the risk.
