Stingy Investor Tip Sheet

Lots of Cash on the Cheap

Like most folks, we like cash. Big piles of cash. We're fond of companies whose vaults are stuffed full of filthy lucre. Today we search for U.S. stocks with lots of cash per share. But we want even more and stuck to companies generating positive earnings. We also avoid high-debt firms and demanded our bargains have low price-to-book-value ratios. Check out the list.

Several insurance companies are on the list. But, remember, their liabilities are not perfectly known. For instance, firms like Montpelier Re are on the hook for losses from earthquakes and hurricanes. It can be a very profitable business but a bad storm season could blow a hole in their balance sheet. It's also a big reason why such firms hold so much cash.
