Actavis plc Annual Valuation – 2015 $ACT

Actavis is not suitable for the Enterprising Investor or for the Defensive Investor. In fact, the company only passes the Defensive Investor’s requirement regarding size, a result which is extremely rare and would seem to indicate a very poor financial position.

Zoetis Inc. Quarterly Valuation – March 2015 $ZTS

Zoetis Inc. (ZTS) is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not for the Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned by the short operating history as a publicly traded company, along with the high PEmg and PB ratios. The Enterprising Investor is only initially concerned by the level of debt relative to the net current assets.

XL Group Annual Valuation – 2015 $XL

XL Group does not qualify for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the company’s lack of earnings stability over the last ten years along with the high PEmg ratio. Similarly, the less conservative Enterprising Investor is concerned by the lack of earnings stability over the last five years.

Linear Technology Corporation Quarterly Valuation – March 2015 $LLTC

Linear Technology is suitable for the Enterprising Investor, but not for the more conservative Defensive Investor, who is concerned about the insufficient earnings growth over the last ten years, along with the high PEmg and PB ratios. The Enterprising Investor, on the other hand, has no initial concerns as the company passes all of the investor type’s requirements.
