Update: Value Stock Picks for the Week of 7/23/12 to 7/27/12




Welcome back to the Value Stock Investing Notebook! Thank you stopping by and supporting the idea of investing in dividend paying stocks for the long term. I wanted to recap last week's picks for you since it is important to review all investments on a weekly, if not daily, basis.


It was a 15 for 20 week. 75of my picks increased in value. A 35% gain from last week. We had a slight increase in successful picks this week and did find some value. When investing in value stocks you should try to hold on for at least a quarter. Let these companies work hard for you so you can maximize your profits.


Until next time friends, keep investing as much as you can on a weekly basis. Perform your due diligence and invest in companies that you feel comfortable with. Do not risk your hard earned dollars by investing in unknown, unreliable companies.


Feel free to watch the great videos below, featuring some of this week's winners!

Update: Value Stock Picks for the Week of 7/16/12-7/20/12


Welcome back to the Value Stock Investing Notebook! Thank you stopping by and supporting the idea of investing in dividend paying stocks for the long term. I wanted to recap last week's picks for you since it is important to review all investments on a weekly, if not daily, basis.


It was a 8 for 20 week. 40of my picks increased in value. A 15% gain from last week's 25% increase. We had a slight increase in successful picks this week and did find some value. Pentair, Inc.(NYSE:PNR) and Synageva BioPharma Corp(NASDAQ:GEVA) increased in value. If you invested $2,000 on 7/16/12 into GEVA, you would have gained $105.66 as of 7/20/12. A sweet profit, all in a week's worth.


When investing in value stocks you should try to hold on for at least a quarter. I like companies such as Checkpoint Systems, Inc.(NYSE:CKP) and  Applied Materials, Inc.(NASDAQ:AMAT) because they are currently undervalued. Let these companies work hard for you so you can maximize your profits.


Until next time friends, keep investing as much as you can on a weekly basis. Perform your due diligence and invest in companies that you feel comfortable with. Do not risk your hard earned dollars by investing in unknown, unreliable companies.

Recommendation: The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing

BUY THIS BOOK!

The book listed below has truly provided an endless amount of helpful information throughout the years for all of us at the Value Investing Notebook. Click below and buy, buy, buy. Spread the word!

The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel (Revised Edition) [Paperback]
Benjamin Graham (Author), Jason Zweig (Author)


“By far the best book on investing ever written.” (Warren Buffett )

“If you read just one book on investing during your lifetime, make it this one” (Fortune )

“The wider Mr. Graham’s gospel spreads, the more fairly the market will deal with its public.” (Barron's )

This classic text is annotated to update Graham's timeless wisdom for today's market conditions...
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham, taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" -- which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies -- has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham's strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham's original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today's market, draws parallels between Graham's examples and today's financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham's principles.

Vital and indispensable, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.

Update: Value Stock Picks for the Week of 7/2/12 to 7/6/12



Welcome back to the Value Stock Investing Notebook! Thank you stopping by and supporting the idea of investing in dividend paying stocks for the long term. I wanted to recap last week's picks for you since it is important to review all investments on a weekly, if not daily, basis.


It was a 5 for 20 week. 25of my picks increased in value. Although we did not make a lot of money this week, we did find some value.  Sirius XM Radio Inc(NASDAQ:SIRI) and CF Industries Holdings, Inc.(NYSE:CF) increased in value. If you invested $1,000 on 7/2/12 into SIRI, you would have gains $108.10 as of 7/6/12. Not too shabby!


When investing in value stocks you should try to hold on for at least a quarter. I like companies such as McDonald's Corporation(NYSE:MCD) and RadioShack Corporation(NYSE:RSH) because they are currently undervalued and also they are very well known in the United States and worldwide! Let these companies work hard for you so you can maximize your profits.


Until next time friends, keep investing as much as you can on a weekly basis. Perform your due diligence and invest in companies that you feel comfortable with. Do not risk your hard earned dollars by investing in unknown, unreliable companies.

ObamaCare Value Stocks - Who Will Benefit?

Who will benefit from the passing of the Affordable Care Act also known as ObamaCare? Well, hopefully each and every member of the United States. However, I strongly believe that healthcare related stocks will benefit as well. Additionally, a few other non-healthcare stocks should increase in value as Obamacare continues to creep into the healthcare sector.


Listed below are stocks which I believe will benefit from the passing of Obamacare. These companies will surely soar to new heights, especially over the next few years.

Value Stock Winner: First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc. - FR

On February 9th, 2007 First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc., stock ticker FR, was worth $49.00 per share. FR was paying a 71 cent per share quarterly dividend and they were riding high. FR had sold around $33.00 to $49.00 dollars since early 2002. Well, the Great Recession hit in 2008/early 2009 and FR plummeted to $2.21 on February 27th, 2009. They cut their dividend and all that was left were shareholders wondering what to do with their losses. What a disaster.


Since then FR has jumped back up to $12.62 per share, as of June 30th, 2012. They have continued to pay a dividend on their Preferred shares, and things appear to be on the up and up. FR announced that for fiscal 2012, they expect funds from operations in the range of $0.89 to $0.99 per share and funds from operations excluding loss from early retirement of debt in the range of $0.96 to $1.06 per share. FR also announced that for fiscal 2012, they expects net income (loss) available to common stockholders in the range of (0.39)-(0.29) per share. According to I/B/E/S Estimates, analysts are expecting the Company to report FFO of $0.95 for fiscal 2012.


What is First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc.? Well, they are a real estate investment trust. FR is a self-administered and fully integrated real estate company, which owns, manages, acquires, sells, develops and redevelops industrial real estate. They are engaged in the acquisition of individual properties, as well as multi-property portfolios. As of December 31, 2011, their in-service portfolio consisted of 354 light industrial properties, 113 R&D/flex properties, 159 bulk warehouse properties, 105 regional warehouse properties, and eight manufacturing properties containing approximately 68.6 million square feet of gross leasable area (GLA) located in 26 states in the United States and one province in Canada.


FR's situation is changing rapidly as the economy improves. FR is working on their debt and selling dead weight properties, that small business and owner/user and will occupy. The availability of Class A real estate with good market cash flows are very hard to come by. 


FR Current Statistics:
52 week $7.15 - $12.85
Vol / Avg. 1.12M/597,026.00
Mkt cap 1.12B
EPS -0.57
Shares 88.64M
Beta 2.44
Inst. own 85%


In closing, FR is selling at a bargain basement price and provides great potential. Purchasing FR at their current share price is simply the cheapest way for a retail investor to buy real estate and the debt at very reasonable prices. Feel free to visit FR's homepage by clicking here, and also visit their Investor Relations page, here. Additionally, please take a second to scroll down below and see which companies are currently tenants of First Industrial Realty Trust, Inc. Some of the best companies in the business rely on FR's real estate to house their corporate offices, storage facilities and stores. Even the FBI leases from FR!


I suggest that you purchase some shares of FR now cause once the real estate market bounces back (and it eventually will) you will be in a great profit taking position!
