6 EXPLORING THE COMPANY S FUNDAMENTALS Use the following framework to investigate companies that you re considering as investments. Remember the Peter Lynch theory of stock selection Invest in What You Know. Evaluate What to Look For The Business What does the company do? How do they make money? (e.g., Do they sell a product, invent technology, sell a service, combination?) Is demand for their product increasing? Are the Company s products & services high quality? The Industry What are the prospects for the industry? Who are the Company s major competitors? The Financials What do the overall financials tell us about the health of a company? Have sales been increasing over time? How does revenue compare to costs? Profitability: What are the Gross Margins, Operating Margins, and Earnings? Does the Company have a lot of debt relative to it s size? The Ideal Company Of course, there is no such thing as the ideal company. When it comes to investing there is always some amount of risk involved. However, there are strategies you can take to minimize those risks and help you identify the most promising companies. U3_LP5H_HANDOUTS_ Page 6 Copyright Magnetar Investment Club

7 Tips! Look for companies that offer a high quality product or service that you (and people you know) know and use regularly. This means you likely have a stronger understanding of the industry, as you are part of the customer market. Target companies in growth industries. Look for companies that have shown strong financial performance over time. In an economic downturn, target companies that make products people always need even when times are tough (i.e., staples not luxuries). Red Flags include: - Earnings slowing or declining - Sales slowing; Management selling stock - Companies that are getting too much press - Prices much higher than their industry peers - Too much debt high (Current Assets/Current Liabilities should exceed 2x) U3_LP5H_HANDOUTS_ Page 7 Copyright Magnetar Investment Club

8 SAMPLE STOCK TABLE Source: Investopedia Columns 1 & 2: 52-Week High and Low Column 3: Company Name Column 4: Ticker Symbol The highest and lowest prices at which a stock has traded over the most recent 12 months. This shows the name of the company, abbreviated. The ticker symbol is the short-cut ID assigned to the company. Column 5: Dividend Per Share Column 6: Dividend Yield Column 7: Price/Earnings Ratio Column 8: Trading Volume Column 9 & 10: Day High and Low Column 11: Close Column 12: Net Change This indicates the annual dividend payment per share. If it is left blank, then the company does not pay out dividends. The percentage return on the dividend (the annual dividend per share divided by price per share). This is calculated by dividing the current stock price by earnings per share from the last four quarters. This reflects the total number of shares traded for the day, listed in hundreds. (Just add 00 to get the actual number traded.) This shows the highest and lowest prices for which the stock traded for the day. The price at which the stock sold for the last trade of the day. This is the dollar value change in the stock price from the previous day's closing price. If the stock is "up for the day," its net change was positive.
