The 52-Week Low Formula is all about looking at companies to invest in and asking the following questions: Do they have a durable competitive advantage? Are the kind of company that is hard to compete with either because they have cornered a difficult market or because competing with them would require an unreasonably high investment by others?What is the purchase value of The 52-Week Low Formula is all about looking at companies to invest in and asking the following questions: Do they have a durable competitive advantage? Are the kind of company that is hard to compete with either because they have cornered a difficult market or because competing with them would require an unreasonably high investment by others?What is the purchase value of the company? If someone were to come in and buy everything, would they inherit debt greater than revenue? And, if you were to buy the company, would it be worth it? Would you make more money that you would simply investing in 10-year Treasury bonds?What's the Return on Invested Capital of the company? Is it using its money well to create returns or is it taking on bad investments that don't pay off?Can it pay its debt off quickly? There are a lot of companies out there that are making a lot of money, but can they, should all revenue activities cease and all debt come due, remain in the black?Finally, is it trading lower than it has in a year? The 52-Week Low formula is based on the idea that even the best companies go through a skid, a downturn in stock value. If a company answers the above four questions well, you want to know if it's going through a rough patch. This is the filter that requires discipline because common investors often overlook good companies when they are on the skids. But good companies always find a way to come back. That's what makes them good companies, what makes them the right companies to invest in, what makes investing in them worthwhile. In this book, readers will: examine the principles that go into selecting the 25 companies Wiley invests in every six months - what he looks for, what requirements he has and how those came to be.examine case studies of companies that have proven time and again that they can overcome obstacles and provide consistent growth for the long-term.show the results of a disciplined approach to investing over an emotional one and the mistakes investors make when they invest out of fear instead of a solid strategic approach.cover the evolution of the 52-Week Low, how the philosophy developed and became strategy and pitfalls he's experienced along the way.

    I like that this book doesn't give too much technical stuff, but still, gives enough for you to kick start your quantitative journey in stock market trading. I do have to say, I don't agree with everything the book says, but it definitely provides a good start to any beginner in stock trading.

    In short, this book is about Investing into Great Companies at near 52-week low. The book can be summarised in a diagram which can be found in the book, about the 5 filters. - Durable Competitive Advantage - Required Min Free Cash Flow Yield - Required Min Return on Invested Capital - Required Min Free Cash Flow to Long Term Debt Ratio - % Change from 52-week low - down to just 25 highest quality stocks Small warning- It's not as easy to apply for any retail investor at beginner level.

Worth a read but not worth to buy and keep. ... Found the below from internet which can be useful. The five filters of the 52 week formula: Filter 1: Durable competitive advantage: It is not about buying any company at a 52 week low. It is about buying a company with a durable competitive advantage at the 52 week low. Filter 2: Free cash flow yield ( Margin Of Safety): The free cash flow yield multiple over the 10 year year treasury bond is known as the margin of safety. The higher the free cash flow yield over the 10 year treasury bond, the higher the margin of safety. Free cash flow= Operating cash flow -capital costs of maintaining current capacity Enterprise value = Market cap+Debt-Cash Free cash flow yield= Free cash flow/ Enterprise value Filter 3: Return on Invested Capital: The return on invested capital should be greater than the cost of capital. Filter 4: Long-term debt to free cash flow ratio: Long term debt to free cash flow should be less than 3 years. Filter 5: 52 week low: The company should be trading close to its 52 week lows. Companies who have a trailing 12 month return of more than -25% are good candidates to invest in, if they fulfil other criteria. 7. Diversify by investing in 25 stocks.

    A concise package of a strategy you can find in further detail from margin of safety, greenwald's "value investing," and other similar such books. This, akin to greenblatt's magic formula, is a much easier read and better for the less experienced investor. However, in direct contrast to that, I didn't find there to be a clear path detailing how to calculate and execute on the filters. For me personally this was a solid time saver but it may leave some people unsure about how to find the necessar A concise package of a strategy you can find in further detail from margin of safety, greenwald's "value investing," and other similar such books.

    A good strategy for investing in the stock market which uses time-tested quantitative (and the author also mentions some qualitative) measures to identify good companies which are currently priced cheap. A good value investing strategy, cleverly timing investments by identifying companies that are currently at their 52 week low due to market sentiment.

    I like the simplicity, and jet compelling and thorough strategy that makes this book a must read. It needs though an update: the example of "Best Buy" as a good candidated in the 52-week look screener look to me more a value trap of a company losing competitive advantage.

    If companies like P&G, MCD, DIS or JNJ sound familiar to you, that not so long ago were hated and unpopular to Wall Street, but everybody knew they were great companies and sooner or later would rebound from their lows (as they did), then this book will be of interest to you because it helps to identify companies with the highest probability of success due to their sound fundamentals that are trading near their lows while discarding the rest. Identifying a company's Moat is no easy task and it's If companies like P&G, MCD, DIS or JNJ sound familiar to you, that not so long ago were hated and unpopular to Wall Street, but everybody knew they were great companies and sooner or later would rebound from their lows (as they did), then this book will be of interest to you because it helps to identify companies with the highest probability of success due to their sound fundamentals that are trading near their lows while discarding the rest. Identifying a company's Moat is no easy task and it's subjective most of the times, but one of the advantages of the methodology outlined in the book is that the process is redundant regarding the Moat, ie, every filter we use, each step we move forward means there is a high chance that a competitive advantage exists. If you have seen great quality companies with little or no debt, falling near their 52 week lows and after a while bounce back and felt sorry for yourself because you knew all along that they were great companies and it was only a matter of time before the market put them where they belong, then this book will be useful to avoid the same mistake again and again. quality + Margin of safety + little Debt + Good Return on Capital + Low Prices = Good Investments with Low Risk

    I first stumbled upon Luke Wiley's contrarian strategy in a stock screen on AAII and was taken by the very boldness of it. I've always been enticed by value investment ideas and this one, specifically because of Wiley's stringent filters, finds those stocks that are neglected and hated and have dropped significantly. Its worth looking into as the strategy has a lot of potential and works very well against the benchmark.

I've always been enticed by value investment ideas and this one, specifically because of Wiley's stringent filters, finds those stocks that are neglected and hated and have dropped significantly. Its worth looking into as the strategy has a lot of potential and works very well against the benchmark. I'm currently trying it out myself with just a few companies that pass the screen test, but am not yet going to implement it outright as the sole strategy for my entire portfolio.
