Looking for Value Part 2b) Which Industry Within the Sector?

The next part of this analysis will determine which of the three industries look the most promising from a value perspective.  I'll then do a more thorough analysis on it.

Methodology

Within each industry I'm going to compare the earnings per share growth to the change in price and then take an average.  I'm looking for the industry that has had the highest EPS growth but the smallest share price growth.

Telecom Majors

Telecom Specialty

I had to remove a bunch of securities from the portfolio - most because they're now private (STRP, SHOR, LMOS, IQNT, HCOM, LVLT, GNCM.A/B, WSTC), one because it was merged into another company (FRP) and one because it trades too infrequently (SGRB). 
After much internal debate I also removed TEUM as it didn't have enough history (in Q3 2016 it was spun out of Elephant Talk Communications, ETAK).

NextEra - Good Dividend in the Renewable Energy Sector

NextEra had good results relative to a group of peers in a factor-based analysis.NextEra has an appealing profitability and income profile.Its price momentum looks decent, with a caveat.Its relatively small size (a small mid-cap) coupled with its industry (renewable energy) further weight the odds that this company could be a strong performer in the future.
The Analysis Overview
I created a portfolio of stocks in the alternative energy sector, looking specifically for companies with a market cap over $1B but less than $4B.  This is a sweet spot that offers strong potential for growth but is also substantial enough not to be too speculative.

It's my believe that alternative energy is on the ascendance, where as fossil fuels will inevitably decline (NextEra isn't a pure play in this regard however, natural gas assets are part of its portfolio).  If you share this belief and you want exposure to this market, NextEra looks like a good bet.

This is a factor-based analysis on seven …

11 Reasons Why INVRS is Better Than Excel Alone

If you work with your own investment models you likely use excel to build them, but excel isn’t ideal for many reasons and it costs you in other ways.
First, you need good data and it isn’t just lying around in an easy to import format.You’re either keying it in yourself or paying money for excel downloads.
When you need data from numerous sources – price information, data from different statements and across multiple years - you must merge it from multiple sheets.  It's an inefficient process which can lead to data corruption.
After all this data is collected and merged, models built and tested, the net result is one statistic for one company.A stand-alone number without context has limited use.To be meaningful, you need to compare it to similar companies. This is just a sample of the challenges.  You need software that overcomes these problems and is designed for investment model creation.
Surprise!  This software exists, it's INVRS.  You can get a free analysis report on …
