ModernGraham Valuation of TCO – April 2017

Stage 1: Is this company suitable for the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor?

What kind of Intelligent Investor are you?

Defensive Investor; must pass all 6 of the following tests.
1. Adequate Size of the Enterprise Market Cap > $2Bil $3,954,692,652 Pass
2. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 10 years prior Fail
3. Dividend Record Dividend Payments for 10 years prior Pass
4. Earnings Growth Increase of 33% in EPS in past 10 years using 3 year averages at beginning and end -301.91% Fail
5. Moderate PEmg Ratio PEmg < 20 21.97 Fail
6. Moderate Price to Assets PB Ratio < 2.5 OR PB*PEmg < 50 54.94 Fail
Enterprising Investor; must pass all 3 of the following tests, or be suitable for the Defensive Investor.
1. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 5 years prior Pass
2. Dividend Record Currently Pays Dividend Pass
3. Earnings Growth EPSmg greater than 5 years ago Pass

Stage 2: Determination of Intrinsic Value

EPSmg $2.96
MG Growth Estimate 13.34%
MG Value $104.29
Opinion Undervalued
MG Grade C+
MG Value based on 3% Growth $42.98
MG Value based on 0% Growth $25.19
Market Implied Growth Rate 6.74%
Current Price $65.13
% of Intrinsic Value 62.45%

Taubman Centers, Inc. is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the insufficient earnings stability or growth over the last ten years, and the high PEmg and PB ratios. The Enterprising Investor has no initial concerns. As a result, all Enterprising Investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Undervalued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $1.57 in 2013 to an estimated $2.96 for 2017. This level of demonstrated earnings growth outpaces the market’s implied estimate of 6.74% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on Benjamin Graham’s formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value above the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Taubman Centers, Inc. revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $4.3. The company pays a dividend of $2.38 per share, for a yield of 3.7%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 21.97, which was below the industry average of 51.63, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry.

Taubman Centers, Inc. receives an average overall rating in the ModernGraham grading system, scoring a C+.

Stage 3: Information for Further Research

Graham Number $4.30
PEmg 21.97
PB Ratio 54.94
Dividend Yield 3.65%
TTM Dividend $2.38
Number of Consecutive Years of Dividend Growth 8

Corecivic Inc Valuation – Initial Coverage $CXW

Benjamin Graham taught that Intelligent Investors must do a thorough fundamental analysis of investment opportunities to determine their intrinsic value and inherent risk.  This is best done by utilizing a systematic approach to analysis that will provide investors with a sense of how a specific company compares to another company or by reviewing the 10 Stocks for Using A Benjamin Graham Value Investing Strategy – March 2017.  By using the ModernGraham method one can review a company’s historical accomplishments and determine an intrinsic value that can be compared across industries.  What follows is a stock analysis showing a specific look at how Corecivic Inc (CXW) fares in the ModernGraham valuation model.

Company Profile (obtained from Google Finance): CoreCivic, Inc., formerly Corrections Corporation of America, is a real estate investment trust (REIT). The Company provides a range of solutions to government partners that serve the public good through corrections and detention management, government real estate solutions, and a network of residential reentry centers to help address America’s recidivism crisis.

ModernGraham Valuation of CXW – March 2017

Stage 1: Is this company suitable for the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor?

What kind of Intelligent Investor are you?

Defensive Investor; must pass 6 out of the following 7 tests.
1. Adequate Size of the Enterprise Market Cap > $2Bil $3,622,263,742 Pass
2. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Current Ratio > 2 1.10 Fail
3. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 10 years prior Pass
4. Dividend Record Dividend Payments for 10 years prior Fail
5. Earnings Growth Increase of 33% in EPS in past 10 years using 3 year averages at beginning and end 33.50% Pass
6. Moderate PEmg Ratio PEmg < 20 17.87 Pass
7. Moderate Price to Assets PB Ratio < 2.5 OR PB*PEmg < 50 2.55 Pass
Enterprising Investor; must pass 4 out of the following 5 tests, or be suitable for the Defensive Investor.
1. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Current Ratio > 1.5 1.10 Fail
2. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Debt to NCA < 1.1 53.89 Fail
3. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 5 years prior Pass
4. Dividend Record Currently Pays Dividend Pass
5. Earnings Growth EPSmg greater than 5 years ago Fail

Stage 2: Determination of Intrinsic Value

EPSmg $1.77
MG Growth Estimate -1.04%
MG Value $11.34
Opinion Overvalued
MG Grade D+
MG Value based on 3% Growth $25.61
MG Value based on 0% Growth $15.01
Market Implied Growth Rate 4.68%
Current Price $31.55
% of Intrinsic Value 278.13%

Corecivic Inc does not satisfy the requirements of either the Enterprising Investor or the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the low current ratio, poor dividend history. The Enterprising Investor has concerns regarding the level of debt relative to the current assets, and the lack of earnings growth over the last five years. As a result, all value investors following the ModernGraham approach should explore other opportunities at this time or proceed cautiously with a speculative attitude.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Overvalued after seeing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) decline from $1.9 in 2013 to an estimated $1.77 for 2017. This level of demonstrated earnings growth does not support the market’s implied estimate of 4.68% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value below the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Corecivic Inc revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $20.26. The company pays a dividend of $2.04 per share, for a yield of 6.5%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 17.87, which was below the industry average of 51.63, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry. Finally, the company was trading above its Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) of $-12.85.

Corecivic Inc scores quite poorly in the ModernGraham grading system, with an overall grade of D+.

Stage 3: Information for Further Research

Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) -$12.85
Graham Number $20.26
PEmg 17.87
Current Ratio 1.10
PB Ratio 2.55
Current Dividend $2.04
Dividend Yield 6.47%
Number of Consecutive Years of Dividend Growth 0

LaSalle Hotel Properties is suitable for the Enterprising Investor but not the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the insufficient earnings stability or growth over the last ten years, the poor dividend history, and the high PEmg ratio. The Enterprising Investor has no initial concerns. As a result, all Enterprising Investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Undervalued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $0.34 in 2013 to an estimated $1.35 for 2017. This level of demonstrated earnings growth outpaces the market’s implied estimate of 6.66% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on Benjamin Graham’s formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value above the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into LaSalle Hotel Properties revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $5.83. The company pays a dividend of $3.01 per share, for a yield of 10.2%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 21.82, which was below the industry average of 31.91, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry.

LaSalle Hotel Properties receives an average overall rating in the ModernGraham grading system, scoring a C+.

Graham Number $5.83

MG Value based on 3% Growth $22.32

Market Implied Growth Rate 0.31%
Current Price $14.04
% of Intrinsic Value N/A

Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust qualifies for both the Defensive Investor and the Enterprising Investor. The Defensive Investor is only initially concerned with the low current ratio. The Enterprising Investor has concerns regarding the level of debt relative to the current assets, and the lack of earnings growth over the last five years. As a result, all value investors following the ModernGraham approach should feel comfortable proceeding with the analysis.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Overvalued after seeing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) decline from $2.19 in 2013 to an estimated $1.54 for 2017. This level of demonstrated earnings growth does not support the market’s implied estimate of 0.31% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value below the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust revealed the company was trading below its Graham Number of $27.01. The company pays a dividend of $1.47 per share, for a yield of 10.5%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 9.12, which was below the industry average of 31.91, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry. Finally, the company was trading above its Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) of $-25.54.

Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust performs fairly well in the ModernGraham grading system, scoring a B+.

Caretrust REIT Inc Valuation – Initial Coverage $CTRE

Benjamin Graham taught that Intelligent Investors must do a thorough fundamental analysis of investment opportunities to determine their intrinsic value and inherent risk.  This is best done by utilizing a systematic approach to analysis that will provide investors with a sense of how a specific company compares to another company or by reviewing the 10 Stocks for Using A Benjamin Graham Value Investing Strategy – February 2017.  By using the ModernGraham method one can review a company’s historical accomplishments and determine an intrinsic value that can be compared across industries.  What follows is a stock analysis showing a specific look at how CareTrust REIT Inc (CTRE) fares in the ModernGraham valuation model.

Company Profile (obtained from Google Finance): CareTrust REIT, Inc. is a self-administered, self-managed real estate investment trust. The Company is engaged in the ownership, acquisition and leasing of healthcare-related properties. It makes investments in healthcare-related real estate assets. As of December 31, 2016, its real estate portfolio included 154 skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), SNF Campuses, assisted living facilities and independent living facilities.

ModernGraham Valuation of CTRE – March 2017

Stage 1: Is this company suitable for the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor?

What kind of Intelligent Investor are you?

Defensive Investor; must pass 6 out of the following 7 tests.
1. Adequate Size of the Enterprise Market Cap > $2Bil $1,015,882,595 Fail
2. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Current Ratio > 2 0.64 Fail
3. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 10 years prior Fail
4. Dividend Record Dividend Payments for 10 years prior Fail
5. Earnings Growth Increase of 33% in EPS in past 10 years using 3 year averages at beginning and end 4466.67% Pass
6. Moderate PEmg Ratio PEmg < 20 45.71 Fail
7. Moderate Price to Assets PB Ratio < 2.5 OR PB*PEmg < 50 1.91 Pass
Enterprising Investor; must pass 4 out of the following 5 tests, or be suitable for the Defensive Investor.
1. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Current Ratio > 1.5 0.64 Fail
2. Sufficiently Strong Financial Condition Debt to NCA < 1.1 -53.24 Fail
3. Earnings Stability Positive EPS for 5 years prior Fail
4. Dividend Record Currently Pays Dividend Pass
5. Earnings Growth EPSmg greater than 5 years ago Pass

Stage 2: Determination of Intrinsic Value

EPSmg $0.34
MG Growth Estimate 15.00%
MG Value $13.01
Opinion Overvalued
MG Grade D
MG Value based on 3% Growth $4.90
MG Value based on 0% Growth $2.87
Market Implied Growth Rate 18.61%
Current Price $15.45
% of Intrinsic Value 118.73%

Caretrust REIT Inc does not satisfy the requirements of either the Enterprising Investor or the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the small size, low current ratio, insufficient earnings stability over the last ten years, the poor dividend history, and the high PEmg ratio. The Enterprising Investor has concerns regarding the level of debt relative to the current assets, and the lack of earnings stability over the last five years. As a result, all value investors following the ModernGraham approach should explore other opportunities at this time or proceed cautiously with a speculative attitude.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Overvalued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $-0.01 in 2013 to an estimated $0.34 for 2017. This level of demonstrated earnings growth does not support the market’s implied estimate of 18.61% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value below the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Caretrust REIT Inc revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $9.63. The company pays a dividend of $0.67 per share, for a yield of 4.3%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 45.71, which was above the industry average of 31.91. Finally, the company was trading above its Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) of $-8.18.

Caretrust REIT Inc scores quite poorly in the ModernGraham grading system, with an overall grade of D.

Stage 3: Information for Further Research

Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) -$8.18
Graham Number $9.63
PEmg 45.71
Current Ratio 0.64
PB Ratio 1.91
Current Dividend $0.67
Dividend Yield 4.34%
Number of Consecutive Years of Dividend Growth 1
