5 Low Leverage Stocks for Steady Returns

“When you buy anything with lots of leverage, it does not require a whole lot to go wrong to lose it all.” – Barry Ritholtz

Indeed, in the complex world of investment, understanding the amount of financial leverage a company bears is crucial. Of course, many companies opt for debt financing to pursue their business operations and as long as they generate a higher rate of return compared to the interest rate they have to eke out, there’s no worry for shareholders. However, exorbitant debt financing might even lead to bankruptcy.

Over time, varied benchmarks based on leverage ratio have emerged as an efficient tool to evaluate a company’s credit worthiness, for potential equity investments. The most popular among them is the debt-to-equity ratio.

This metric is basically a liquidity ratio that indicates the amount of financial risk a company faces. A higher debt-to-equity ratio indicates that the company uses more debt financing compared to investor financing.

Analyzing the Formula

Debt-to-Equity Ratio = Total Liabilities/Shareholders’ Equity

A lower debt-to-equity ratio implies a more financially stable business.

With the first quarter earnings season already on the go, investors must be eyeing companies with solid earnings growth. However, blindly pursuing high earnings yielding stocks might drain all your money before you know, if the stock bears a high debt-to-equity ratio.

This is because a high debt-to-equity ratio indicates a huge level of repayment that the company has to make in connection with the large debt amount, which had once exploded its earnings. This in reality makes the company’s so-called solid earnings a very volatile one.

The Winning Strategy

It goes without saying that given the current volatile market condition, which is already making investors more skeptical each day, choosing low leverage stocks will be a wise strategy.

However, an investment strategy based solely on the debt-to-equity ratio might not fetch the desired outcome. To choose stocks that have the potential to give you steady returns, we have expanded our screening criteria to include some other criteria.

Brook: I'd love to bash Broner

Last Updated: 20/04/16 10:50am

Kell Brook has put Danny Garcia at the top of his wishlist but admits he would like to give Adrien Broner a “beating”.

The IBF welterweight champion is ready to get back into the ring this summer after seeing off three consecutive mandatory defences.

Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn added Lamont Peterson and Timothy Bradley to the list earlier this week and revealed there was a possibility of the ‘Special One’ taking on middleweight Miguel Cotto.

Brook admits Cotto would be a dream fight but now it seems to have fallen through, would rather take on WBC world welterweight champion, Garcia.

“I remember the Cotto story came out just after [Amir] Khan announced he was going to fight [Saul] Alvarez, then we started hearing rumours,” he told Sky Sports.

“I couldn’t stop talking about it but it hasn’t progressed for one reason or another. It would be a big fight. We’ve all watched him for many years and he’s a true warrior and those are the sort of fights we all want.

“Right now though, I want Danny Garcia. He is a big name, he is good and that would be my number one pick.”

Garcia has not boxed since winning the WBC belt in January, although there is plenty of speculation suggesting the two-weight world champion will be the opponent if Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring to set a new 50-0 record.

Former friends Mayweather and Broner appear to have fallen out and Brook would be happy to fight ‘The Problem’.

“A lot of people, including myself, would like to give him a beating for how he acts and how he goes off,” he said.

“He does wind me up because he’s got no respect for the game. I am not as bad as some people who say they ‘hate’ him, I just take him for what he is. But he’s someone I’d like to smack about!

“He can fight, they can all fight at this level. I am ready to go in July. I just want big names and I need to fight big names to get me up for a fight. I’ve been doing this for a long time.”

Brook also had a message for rising American star Errol Spence Jr, who became the first fighter to stop former world champion Chris Algieri in New York at the weekend and immediately called out the IBF champion.

Spence Jr’s stunning fifth-round win moved him up the rankings but still needs to beat Konstantin Ponomarev in an eliminator to become the mandatory challenger.

“He’s still not heard of as a big name but he’s definitely showing he’s starting to fight and it will be interesting when he becomes the mandatory and we have to get it on,” said Brook.

“But I just wonder if he’s got a taste of Jeff Lacy about him, this big hype thing – and look what Joe Calzaghe
