Top 10 US value stocks

Welcome to another blog post by LJ Nissen. As we mentioned in our last post, we would pick the top 10 US value stocks and look at the performance of those stocks over the next year.


The criteria that I use are those of Lord Lee of Trafford:

  • P/E ratio below 10.
  • Dividend yield of 5% or more.
  • I should be prepared to hold the stocks for at least 5 years.
  • I should not worry about short-term movements.

The stocks that we’ve found that meet all the criteria are the following:

Name (Ticker) P/E Dividend Yield Business Price
AVX Corporation (AVX) 10.25 3.45% Electronic Components 12.40
The Buckle (BKE) 9.65 3.27% Apparel company 30.67
Cummins Inc (CMI) 9.56 4.46% Natural gas engines 89.30
GATX Company (GMT) 9.20 3.70% Leases, operates and manages rail 42.67
GameStop Corp (GME) 7.66 5.03% Videogame retailer 28.37
HCI Group (HCI) 5.75 3.52% Insurance Company 35.30
The Macerich Company (MAC) 8.37 3.43% Real Estate 80.17
Pier 1 Imports (PIR) 8.33 5.51% Decorative home furnishings 5.20
Rocky Brands (RCKY) 9.13 3.78% Footwear manufacturer 11.68
West Corporation (WSTC) 8.18 4.14% Diversified communication services 21.75

Table 1. These were the top 10 US value stocks as of January 31’st 2015. Name and ticker symbol are in the left column, the P/E-ratio is second column, the dividend yield in the third, the business in the fourth and finally the price is in the fifth column.

Note: I would advice you not to invest in just one of these companies but to take a portfolio approach and invest in them all.

Now that I’ve caught your attention, I would appreciate it if you downloaded my primer “Our three favorite gold stocks”.
