Scripps Network Interactive, Inc. (Symbol SNI , $80.28) is a stock that meets my criteria as a stock to invest in here. I like the PEG Ratio to be below 1.5 or bless and the stock currently has a PEG ratio of 1.22 according to GuruFocus website. The Return On Equity I like to be at 15% or better and Scripps steps up with a 27.43 ROE, (Return on Equity).
The stock is up 10.2% this year and it also adds a 1% dividend payment. That adds up to a pretty nice annual return of 11.2%. I think in 2015 you will need to pick out stocks that give you that 10-15% return with the dividend included. It will be tougher to find those 30+ plus returns in 2015 and you may subject yourself to unwarranted risk trying to attain it.
The company has a market capitalization of $11 Billion dollars. SNI generates quarterly Free Cash flow of $248.42 Million dollars. Profit Margin is 40.1%. The company has a healthy balance sheet with a Quick Ratio or 6.3 dollars in Assets for every 1 dollar of Liability. Revenues last year were $2.651 Billion dollars.
The secret of this company is that there customers are interactive with their TV shows. The last Food Network Star for example was picked by the audience in the last show. This one is a winner that you can buy at anytime here. Stock symbol SNI.
