7 Low WACC Strong Balance Sheet Companies

Description:

I want to take a look at companies that not only have excellent balance sheets but also low costs of capital and pay healthy dividends. The reason is quite clear, these companies can leverage their already strong balance at low costs in order to expand existing business capability and make acquisitions while still returning cash to investors. I surveyed companies with low WACC (weighted average cost of capital), high Altman Z-Scores (a measure of balance sheet health) , high ROCE (Return on common equity) and above market average dividend yields. The data was obtained from the Bloomberg Professional Service. This portfolio of low WACC strong financial health companies will provide both moderate growth opportunities along with financial protection and cash flow.
