First Marblehead – a Value But Not for Light Hearted

in Stock Analysis

I’ve been a big fan of First Marblehead’s (FMD) stock for couple months now, and it looks like an incredible value today, trading somewhere around 7-8 times earnings. Though I have to mention this stock is not for the light hearted, as it has a lot of myths surround it.

Tom Brown, who I am very proud to have as my book endorser, wrote a harsh but wonderful piece today dispelling a lot of myths surrounding FMD. In addition, the company has no debt, 15% of its market cap is in cash and it has been growing earnings 30-50% a year. Its margins will likely compress going forward, thus its growth may decline from its past levels, but it should be in double digits.

Oh, did I mention FMD just raised its dividend to 3% yield?
