If you show up for a fair fight, you are not prepared.
Any event driven/arbitrage questions?
Where can an investor go that the price system cannot keep up?
Certain event driven situations allow investors to exploit profits from securities where the price system itself fails. With many investors seeking to profit from the efficient, priced-in aspects of the market - from well-known, well-loved, often rehashed ideas about famous securities - what is left?
What scraps have fallen beneath the floorboards such that we can underpay for value due to some aspect of a corporate event that the price system fails to properly discount?
Please ask any question on your mind regarding specific tickers (especially M&A, spin-offs, conversions, litigation, rights, warrants, liquidations, and the like) that have substantial value that is mispriced by the capital markets. Alternatively, I would be happy to answer anything about risk, sizing, or research.
I will make an effort to respond to any question in either the comments below this post or sent directly.
If you want to learn more about these types of opportunities, you may want to read You Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits. I apologize for the title, but the author of this book actually is a stock market genius, so he has earned the privilege of writing silly titles.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
