STOCK SCREEN: Commercial Services Stocks With Solid Margin-Of-Safety And Relative Strength

 

Earnings estimates have been coming down consistently over the last couple of quarters. Unsurprisingly the Energy sector has suffered the most, but negative earnings revisions have been rather broad-based with only a few exceptions.

 

In the U.S. the Commercial Services sector and the recently screened sectors Transportation, Automobiles but also Construction are expected to grow earnings in the first quarter of this year.

 

In looking for ideas this week, we screen the Commercial Services sector for stocks with solid upside according to our fundamental fair value estimates and relative strength.

 

Here are the filter criteria:

1. Market capitalization above 1bn.

2. Upside to Intrinsic Stock Value according to our AVM’s Greenblatt inspired estimate or Mean Multiple based estimate.

3. Relative Strength over 12 months.

 

Here is our list of stocks matching all criteria in alphabetical order. Company names in the table below are linked to the ANALYZER, our single stock analysis tool. Intrinsic Value Model assumptions can be adapted in the MODELER, our modeling and forecasting environment:
