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

I am a final-year PhD student in Accounting at University of Toronto. My doctoral dissertation is on activist short selling - short sellers publicly talk down stocks to benefit their short positions. The main purpose of this SA column is to apply my academic research findings to real-life investing decisions.
I invest (technically) part-time, but I love the markets and immerse myself in them daily. I enjoy writing about my investment ideas as it helps me to organize my thoughts and I am happy to share if it helps others. I invite criticism as it will help sharpen my ideas, so please tell me where, in your opinion, I am going wrong.
Many years experience both as an institutional equity analyst and in accounting. Global coverage. Keen on academic & commercial research. We all have different opinions but if you start babbling horse dung then prepare for a wild ride. Your choice.
My name is Anders Østerø. I am a full time student in economics and a part time law student - thus aiming for two university degrees.
Meanwhile my studies I am a very active investor. I have been involved in intraday trading as well as long term investing. At the time I am too trying to start a family investment fund. The purpose of this fund will mainly be within neutral options strategies and investing in the long term. Primary goal is to strive towards a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 20+%. If this will prove unattainable the purpose is to outperform the MSCI instead.
My interests at the time is primarily within neutral options market strategies and value/growth investing. I am a big fan of investors like Michael Benklifa (Iron condors), Benjamin Graham (Value investing) and Peter Lynch (Growth and value investing).
