Nine Wide-Moat Stocks on Sale
High-quality names hit 5 stars as the market retreats.
With the stock market retreating last week, an unusually high number of stocks jumped to 5 stars. All in all, there were more than 60 stocks that crossed the 5-star threshold (for the complete list, click here), including many high-quality names, such as Pfizer (PFE) and Walt Disney (DIS). These two, and a number of other firms mentioned below, carry Morningstar's wide-moat rating--a status assigned to the firms that, in our opinion, have the most durable competitive advantages over their peers. As many of these companies' stocks rarely trade at a suitably large discount (margin of safety) to our fair value estimate, we welcome the opportunity to add them to our bargain bin.
Moat: Wide | Risk: Avg | Price/Fair Value Ratio*: 0.74 | Three-Year Expected Annual Return*: 21.3%
