Liability Adjusted Cash Flow Yield: 3.40%
Dividend Yield: 1.74%
Return on Invested Capital: 26.06%Avid imbibers are sure to recognize Brown-Forman's (BFB) notable brands. In addition to Jack Daniels, the company also boasts Finlandia, Korbel, Southern Comfort and Chambord. Though this stock is not "cheap," it continues to trade at a reasonable valuation, and management has long delivered impressive returns on capital. Shares of Brown-Forman have appreciated nearly 10,000% since 1978, and this figure does not include dividends distributed (let alone reinvested ones!). Looking at the company's recent performance, one is left to wonder: Is this is one of Benjamin Graham's "goodwill giants," or a highflying stock in need of a minor correction? Either way, the company is likely to deliver a reasonable return into the future.
