At the end of last week, the

Fairholme Fund (Trades, Portfolio) released its portfolio for the third quarter, which ended on August 31.

The fund is part of

Bruce berkowitz (Trades, Portfolio) Fairholme Capital Management of Miami. As he believes that more diversified portfolios lead to more average returns, the guru invests in a handful of undervalued stocks whose underlying companies have good management teams and steady cash flow generation.

Having not been invested in more than 10 holdings since the third quarter of 2018, the fund has embarked on a wave of purchases. He established eight new positions during the quarter, boosted Imperial Metals Corp. (TSX: III, Financial) by 10% and reduced its stake in Fannie Mae (FNMAS.PFD, Financial) and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. (FMCKJ.PFD, Financial) preferred shares. Among the additions to the portfolio were Enterprise Product Partners LP (DEP, Financial), Commercial Metals Co. (CMC, financial), Intel Corp. (INTC, Financial), Energy Transfer LP (HEY, Financial) and Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI, Financial).

Enterprise Product Partners

The fund invested in 1.11 million shares of Enterprise Products Partners (DEP, Financial), allocating 2.27% of the equity portfolio to the participation. The stock traded at an average price of $ 23.53 per share during the quarter.

Enterprise Product Partners is now Fairholme’s second holding company.

The Houston-based midsize oil and gas company has a market cap of $ 49.78 billion; its shares were trading at around $ 22.78 on Monday with a price-to-earnings ratio of 13.08, a price-to-book ratio of 2.01 and a price-to-sell ratio of 1.53.

The GF value line suggests that the stock is currently slightly undervalued based on its historical ratios, past performance and future earnings projections.

The financial strength of Enterprise Products Partners has been rated 4 out of 10 by GuruFocus. Due to the issuance of approximately $ 2.9 billion in new long-term debt over the past three years, interest coverage is low. The low Altman Z-Score of 1.53 also warns that the company could face bankruptcy if it does not improve its liquidity. However, the company creates value as it grows, since the return on invested capital overshadows the weighted average cost of capital.

The company’s profitability fared better, scoring a 7 out of 10 thanks to an expanding operating margin, strong returns on equity and capital that outperform more than half of its competitors and a Moderate Piotroski F-Score of 6, which indicates trading conditions are stable. Due to the decline in revenue per share over the past three years, the predictability ranking of one in five stars is under scrutiny. According to GuruFocus, companies with this rank are reporting an average of 1.1% per year over a 10-year period.
