Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks is a research service for value investors seeking value stocks with a huge gap between price and intrinsic value, leaning towards deep value balance sheet bargains (i.e. buying assets at a discount e.g. net cash stocks, net-nets, low P/B stocks, sum-of-the-parts discounts) and wide moat stocks (i.e. buying earnings power at a discount in great companies like "Magic Formula" stocks, high quality businesses, hidden champions and wide moat compounders).
Those who believe that the pendulum will move in one direction forever—or reside at an extreme forever— eventually will lose huge sums. Those who understand the pendulum's behavior can benefit enormously. ~ Howard Marks
Investment ideas for Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks are generated from screens, insider trades, 13Fs, fund manager letters, analyst reports, blogs and forums. The initial ideas sourced are subsequently evaluated using The Cheapness-Safety-Quality (CSQ) framework, applying customized investment checklists to ask the right questions of the investments in question, along the dimension of cheapness, safety and quality. Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks' value investing philosophy borrows from the wisdom of value investing gurus, using both quantitative screens and qualitative inputs to filter the global stock markets for investment ideas.

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.

I am a 'deep value' investor/analyst mainly focused on the US small-cap universe. I started out with a long-only bias (stocks trading close to NCAV etc.), but I have now started to focus on the short side as well. I am especially interested in instances of aggressive accounting and earnings manipulation. I am always looking to connect with fellow investors/analysts so do not hesitate to contact me! I am also passively looking for a job on the buy-side.
