Scott Black's Top 2 Value Stocks
Wednesday, 26 Jun 2013 | 5:38 PM ET
Shares of two companies have not yet participated in the recent rally, making them strong value plays, Delphi's Scott Black says.

Shares of two companies have not yet participated in the recent rally, making them strong value plays, Delphi's Scott Black said Wednesday.

The first was Western Union.

"You get paid while you wait. You get about a 3 percent yield. The stock is 16 and change," he said. "The earnings will be down a little bit this year, $1.40, so you're paying about 11.9 multiple. But the earnings should turn up next year to about $1.60, $1.65."

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Black said that a change in their pricing strategy would help Western Union continue to dominate the space against such competitors as MoneyGram.

Black noted that Western Union had "well over 100 percent return on equity."

"It's a money machine. They bought back about $2.2 billion worth of their own stock in the last three years," he said. "It's a steady type of business. It's not interest-rate sensitive."

Western Union closed at $16.87 per share, up 2 percent.

Black said that he saw significant upside.

"Let's say you get $1.60 in earnings next year. There's no reason the stock can't go to $23 or $24, so that would be an all-in return with the dividend somewhere between 40, 45 percent," he said.

Black's other top value stock was American Railcar, 55 percent of which was owned by Carl Icahn's IEP.

Noting the company's healthy backlog, he said, "It's 1.7 times tangible book, and it's a pretty good company for an 8.8 multiple."
