Boyar Research Featured in Forbes

Boyar Research was recently featured in Forbes in an article penned by Antoine Gara titled Three Forgotten Stocks Poised to Surge in 2017. The article highlights our investment thesis for Discovery Communications, Brinker International, and Legg Mason (all three companies were recently featured in our annual Forgotten Forty publication).

Below please find an excerpt from the article.

For years Boyar Research has offered up winning stock picks for value investors to study during the holidays when it publishes a list of 40 forgotten companies set to surge in the new year. Since Boyar Research began hunting for its so-called Forgotten Forty stocks, these picks have handily beaten the S&P 500 Index.

The firm pores over Wall Street for unloved companies where it spots a looming positive catalyst, for instance a corporate breakup or a revival in sales growth and investor interest. Last year stocks like industrial pipe and valve giant MRC Global, Scotts Miracle-Gro, workplace uniform specialist UniFirst Corp. and Liberty Broadband were among Boyar Research’s top performing picks, helping the firm’s Forgotten Forty list to an over 16% gain, trouncing the S&P 500 Index’s 11% rise (these figures include dividends).

Boyar’s picks have returned 18.2% annualized over a five-year time frame and 6.1% and 7.6% respectively over ten-year and fifteen-year stretches. This compares to gains of 12.7%, 4.5% and 4.5% by the S&P 500 over similar time frames. Now the firm has a new list of stocks to watch in 2017 and has offered FORBES a look at three stock picks for the new year.
