Bumbershoot Holdings L.P. is a private investment partnership launched in Oct-2015.
The partnership uses a fundamental investment strategy as a “quality over quantity” approach to identifying and evaluating great businesses. It primarily invests in small- and mid- capitalization public companies which are headquartered in the U.S. and listed on a domestic exchange. It maintains a relatively concentrated portfolio with approximately 60%-75% of assets in its top-15 holdings. The partnership utilizes low levels of leverage and hedges net long exposure through various short positions and equity derivatives, as dictated by overall market conditions.
Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
I am a fundamentally oriented value investor who complements this with technical analysis to help optimize price points selected for buying and selling.
I like companies with
* significant price to free cash flow
* high return on invested capital and return on equity
* book-adjusted earnings or cash returns exceeding 10%
In terms of geographical focus, I am willing to invest in most markets worldwide. I am skeptical of most Chinese companies trading outside of Hong Kong.
I am a full-time investor managing family office since 2009. My primary focus is value investing and special situations.
My work focuses on finding hidden value stocks neglected by Wall Street and mispriced by the market, providing a wide margin of safety and robust business strength.
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.

To succeed in investment activities, you should master three skills: research and valuation, risk management, and a different thinking approach. While many succeed in the first two areas, a third one is much more complicated. It is not so easy to think differently. This book will help you improve your investment decision making and will offer you a range of thinking approaches which you can implement to achieve your investment objectives. Each chapter is supplemented with case studies of actual investment situations that illustrate the discussed concepts.
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.
