Portfolio: Another Look at Dream Buys

By Elliott H. Gue on Jun. 17, 2022

The prices you see in the “Rating” column of our Portfolio and coverage universe tables are highest recommended entry points. We base them on a combination of business quality and valuation factors. And the result is a price where—if purchased at or below—a stock should generate an average annual total return of at least 10 percent, if held 3 to 5 years.

A “Dream Buy” price in contrast is a level we don’t expect to be hit under normal market conditions. But if you can buy at or below—and the company in question is still solid on the inside—the historical precedent is you can easily double your money in 12 to 18 months, even without counting in dividends. And that includes the last couple years, following 2020 lows when many of these stocks were indeed at or below Dream prices.

We present Dream Buy prices in two places: Inside the regular issue with our Portfolio tables, and as a feature on the Energy and Income Advisor website home page under the “Portfolios” tab.
