The months fly by don’t they? It’s December, so it’s time for the monthly update here on BuffettScore.com.
For those new, welcome! Each month the list of stocks that can be seen on the homepage are updated to include the companies that meet all criteria listed on the about page. This post contains all of the stocks that have either joined or left the mix.
New Buffett Score Stocks For December
Alright, let’s start with the positive. Here are the new stocks this month on BuffettScore.com:
- AME - AMETEK
- CRUS - Cirrus Logic
- CRVL - CorVel Corporation
- EMR - Emerson Electric
- EVR - Evercore
- GNRC - Generac Holdings
- HCKT - The Hackett Group
- ITW - Illinois Tool Works
- LFVN - LifeVantage Corporation
- LH - Laboratory Corporation of America
- ODFL - Old Dominion Freight Line
- STLD - Steel Dynamics
- TPL - Texas Pacific Land
- WOR - Worthington Industries
Off the bat, some of these stocks did leave the list this month and now they’re back. This is due to pricing of the stock and the expected rate of return. I am considering tweaking these pricing aspects a little bit to hopefully avoid this yo-yoing in future.
The most interesting name on the list? That has to go to LifeVantage (LFVN). The company has a market cap of just $87M. It’s so small I’m almost certain the readers of this newsletter could stage a hostile takeover (I kid, of course, this looks like an MLM which I’d prefer to steer clear of).
Stocks Removed From the List
Now for those leaving the list. There’s a handful, and as we’ve seen, they could make a resurgence next month. Again, I want to look into ways of preventing this, but for the time being it’s a weakness in the checklist.
- AVY - Avery Dennison
- CERN - Cerner Corporation
- EGRX - Eagle Pharmaceuticals
- HII - Huntington Ingalls Industries
- HUM - Humana
- MGA - Magna International
- MPX - Marine Products
- PETS - PetMed Express
- ROK - Rockwell Automation
- ROL - Rollins
- XLNX - Xilinx
I recently wrote about Huntington Ingalls Industries on Seeking Alpha. It’s an interesting company that’s now no longer a part of the list due to debts no longer being covered by net income. It’s not a major issue, but certainly something to be aware of as an investor.
