Hedge Fund Trade Of The Week: H&R Block

Where’s the fast money finding opportunity? In this regular feature Anthony Scaramucci aka The Hedge reveals his latest greatest pick!

This week’s trade is H&R Block, the world's largest tax services providers; according to the H&R Block website they’re prepared more than 550 million tax returns worldwide since 1955.

Check out the company’s chart as well as some of its stats:

H&R Block (HRB)
Sector: Services
Industry: Personal Services
Market Cap: $3.9 billion
Based in; Kansas City, MO
52-week high: $23.23
52-week low: $10.13

Scaramucci selected this stock as his hedge fund trade of the week as a classic value name. “At 8.4 times earnings, I think the stock is very cheap,” he says.

That’s partly due to a sharp selloff on Wednesday triggered by concerns that H&R Block had a greater risk of mortgage-putback liabilities than previously expected.

However, Scaramucci isn’t worried. “I think the fear is overblown,” he says.
