Bottom Fishing (6/13/2013)

In this month’s cover story, we took a closer look at one of the screening methods used by Hugh McManus. In a nutshell, he searches for high-quality companies trading near a selected low price. The current price is compared versus a selected low price which is dependent on the company’s growth rate. The higher the growth rate, the further back Hugh goes in history to compare.

The following results illustrates why he’d avoid Apple (AAPL) and keep in mind that he’s generally disinterested unless this ratio (price-to-selected low price) is less than 25%.
