Newell Brands Inc (NYSE:NWL) FAST Graphs Analyze-Out-Loud Analysis

2018-09-14

Newell Brands Inc. (NWL) has been one of the most requested stocks that I’ve been asked to provide an analyze out loud video on.  When I first  looked at it, I had to wonder why people were so interested in this particular stock.  Then I realized that statistically it looks great.  The company’s blended P/E ratio is quite low at 8.5 which is approximately half of what I would consider attractive, so valuation appears enticing.  As a result, the dividend yield is 4.2% which is quite high in today’s interest rate environment.  Moreover, the company only has 39% debt to capital which is also reasonable.

Nevertheless, I do consider the company too cyclical for my taste.  On the other hand, the valuation is compelling.  But, as I illustrated in the video, recent operating results have also been weak along with the stock price.  Consequently, I would only consider the stock a turnaround opportunity rather than a blue-chip dividend growth stock.  I will explain my position in the video.
