We seek value plus multiple overlapping catalysts, sourced using proprietary tools. We will create our own catalysts with the fundamental goal to put assets to their highest and best use with the optimal financial structure to maximize long term business value. Founded in 2009 by Ryan J. Morris - as a founder of a bootstrapped software company prior to being a full time investor, I have a great appreciation and respect for the operational details and entrepreneurial efforts underlying the financial numbers of a business.
I am a compound interest enthusiast and an aspiring money manager. I spend my free time reading and learning how to value businesses. Searching for undervalued stocks is just about the most exciting activity I can think of.
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.

NMY Investment has an opportunistic value-driven investing strategy. We focus primarily on Asian markets, particularly in Greater China and selectively in Southeast Asia. We emphasize on "margin of safety" in our investments, investing in businesses that are valued at below their intrinsic value. We measure intrinsic value from a company's ability to generate consistent cash flows through business cycles, which is, in turn, impacted by the company's economic moat. We look for catalysts that will enable these shares to realize their fair value in a reasonable period of time, and typically hold our investments for 6-24 months.

I am a Certified Public Accountant, Entrepreneur, and Investor. Having worked in all aspects of the financial accounting & reporting profession, I prefer to form my opinions from the publicly available information issued by management according to Financial Reporting standards. From time to time I make exceptions to this; but do so rarely.
I seek investment ideas that are new, overlooked, or deemed inappropriate by the masses. In 2013 I promoted Facebook Inc (www.FBInvestmentClub.com) while the markets were bearish on the stock.
I am inspired by Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Ray Dalio and anyone who has influenced them. I am not so much interested in what these folks tell us as I am in what they do, and what that says about how they think (and why).
I live and work in Houston. If you're here, let's connect.
