...ON THE MARKETS
"It is a zero sum game. Plain and simple. There is NO SUCH THING AS A SURE THING...only risk what you are prepared to lose."
I'm looking for growth stocks that's reasonably priced or stocks that seem of good value.I thoroughly research companies that fall into this category figuring out whether they are fully priced and the reason they are not fully priced. If the reason they are undervalued is irrational or short term I will cover the company and recommend an action.
I focus on companies with a good product or service, excellent management, uneconomic selling, good return on capital, high barriers to entry, high and consistent FCF and a strong balance sheet
Using a bottom up approach, I try to identify stocks using a combination of Bloomberg information, 10-Q and 10-K's as well as excel valuation modeling spreadsheets, seeking to buy stocks of companies of good quality for a reasonable price leaving me with an asymmetric risk profile.
