The Value Investor 500

To select the top 500 publicly traded companies in the U.S., I started with the 500 companies with the largest free cash flows as of the end of 2011. The list was then rank ordered by the companies’ five-year average pre-tax return on invested capital. This one-size-fits-all calculation cuts out many of the legal accounting tricks (such as excessive debt) that managers use to boost earnings numbers, and provides you with an apples-to-apples way to evaluate businesses, even across industries.

    Hi Jae,

    Frankly I’m astonished. We run a fund in Cleveland and although entertaining, we usually find investing websites a little shallow on the analysis. Than someone showed me Old School Value. All i can say is keep up the great work of helping individual investors and (admitted sheepishly)for teaching an old dog new tricks!

    Thanks Steven. Even Warren Buffett is still learning at his age. I hope to be able to continue with my own learning for a long time.
