Deep value companies that have plunged over 50% in the past year

After the shake out this year so far I thought you would be interested to see what companies have lost over 50% in value over the past year. Perhaps you can find a few good deep value investment ideas for your portfolio.


What the screen looks like

This is what I screened for:

  • All companies in the Quant Investing stock screener's 22,000 company universe
  • With a one year stock price decline of more than 50% (to do this I used Price index 12m = Current stock price / stock price 12 months ago)
  • Sorted with companies with the biggest decline at the top

These were companies with the biggest price fall:

As you can see some very wild stock price falls.


Adding good fundamental momentum

What happens if we only look for companies with good fundamental momentum?

To do this I used the same screen as above but screened out companies with a Piotroski F-Score greater than 6. 

You can read more about the Piotroski F-Score here:

Can the Piotroski F-Score also improve your investment strategy?

Only look for cheap companies

What happens if you only look for undervalued companies?

To do this I used all the above mentioned criteria and sorted the list of companies using our own developed composite rating called Qi Value

Looks like the largest number of companies are from South Korea but really from all over the world – even the USA.


Please do your own research

As with all screens this is just a list of companies that because of the large price fall may have VERY BIG problems.

Therefore do your own research and fact checking.
