Looking for some value plays to dig into? Look no further

This afternoon I was screening for some value plays to do some further research into as a potential to find a new stock to add to my portfolio. The I have specifically excluded any commodities stock from the list given the cyclicality of these companies. The criteria used in my search is as follows:

 

  1. P/E of below 7
  2. EV/EBITDA of below 5
  3. P/FCF of below of below 10
  4. Current Ratio above 1
  5. Debt / Equity  less than 40%
  6. Return on Invested Capital above 7%

 

I was able to find the following companies that met all the criteria:

 

African Media Entertainment Ltd

  • P/E: 5
  • EV/EBITDA: 2.67
  • P/FCF: 4.38
  • Current Ratio: 2.22

  • ROIC: 14.74%

  • P/E: 3.83
  • EV/EBITDA: 2.12

  • P/E: 5.43
  • EV/EBITDA: 2.17

  • ROIC: 8.98%

Lewis Group Ltd

  • P/E: 5.78
  • EV/EBITDA: 2.92
  • P/FCF: 6.29
  • Current Ratio: 2.31
  • Debt / Equity: 0.28
  • ROIC: 7.60%

Santova Ltd

  • P/E: 6.05
  • EV/EBITDA: 3.57
  • P/FCF: 4.62
  • Current Ratio: 1.81
  • Debt / Equity: 0.29
  • ROIC: 22.91%

Transpaco Limited

  • P/E: 5.25
  • EV/EBITDA: 3.57
  • P/FCF: 7.94
  • Current Ratio: 2.02
  • Debt / Equity: 0.23
  • ROIC: 18.34%

 

Prior to conducting this exercise I already held three of the shares (Santova, Argent and Lewis) the fact that they thus were included in the list further reaffirms my investment approach.
