Trade Alert For Equity Model Only
This morning we added two positions to our portfolio that continue to follow our theme of value and dividend. The first was Stanley Black & Decker (SWK), which trades at a 0.72 Price/Sales ratio and sports a dividend of 3.73%. In an economic slowdown, sales should be maintainable as home projects shift to DIY mode.
The second position is T. Rowe Price (TROW) which has a very annuitized stream of cash flows from fees charged for its mutual funds. TROW has no debt, a yield of 4%, and fee revenue will grow as the market begins to recover over the next 12-18 months. It also gives us more exposure to financials where we are currently underweight.
- Initiate a 1.5% position in Stanley Black & Decker (SWK)
- Buy a 1% position of T. Rowe Price (TROW) into the portfolio.
