A UK Portfolio
I have been through hundreds of UK stocks over the past year. The ones listed below are, in my view, the best value stocks in the UK today. If I were to hold a UK only portfolio, I'd hold these stocks at the weightings indicated. If I were to include a short position, I'd opt for
Finsbury Premier Foods.
I'd venture that portfolio outperforms the FTSE 350 by at least 20% over the next year. I'd also wager that, over two years, it outperforms, on an after-tax basis, any statistical strategy targeting UK stocks -- F-score, net net, valuentum, or whatever else.
We'll revisit it next December and and do a post mortem.
Share Sleuth, Expecting Value & Wexboy have written about one or more of these stocks, and their posts are well worth reading. As always, though, please do your own research.
Disclosure: I have a position in Northgate.
