I'm a professional poker player with an interest in investing. My investing style is build on the principles of Graham and Dodd: trying to buy companies that are on sale and have a margin of safety in case the investment thesis is wrong. I discuss all my picks at my blog @ alphavulture.com
I‘m an economics undergraduate student of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.
I got into investing at age 17 after reading the intelligent investor and other books about Warren Buffet.
We want to give you the ultimate edge in banking market intelligence. That means timely articles on bank stocks that are under-followed and under-appreciated.
One of our specialities is to look at banks through the eyes of an acquirer. We look past the reality today and view a bank in light of its ultimate potential, what it could be worth to an acquirer, or what it might be worth as an acquirer.
As investors know the banking industry is rapidly consolidating. We went form 14,000 banks in the 1980s to ~6,000 banks today. And regulators have made it clear they would prefer if the US banking industry had closer to 1,500 banks. What happens to the excess banks? They'll be sold and rolled up as management teams retire, as Boards tire of endless regulation, or as these banks are outpaced by technology.
CompleteBankData pulls source data directly and digitally from US regulators meaning we don't introduce the possibility for human transposition error. But data is just a starting point. We've built top in class analytical and research tools that help users save hours of time researching and searching for hard to find data.
Beyond our standard tools we specialize in custom reporting and customized software solutions based on our platform. Please contact us for further details.
