An investor focusing on identifying true growth companies sold at discounted price compared to its long-term value. I came from the old value investing school 10 years ago. Gradually, I learned the hard way as Buffett did. Business landscape outweighs financial numbers. Never look at stocks with a rear mirror. Past financial numbers only show the past. What matters is the future. Past numbers can be manipulated or overstretched by management. Traditional value stocks even with good margin of safety can also be very dangerous. I also believe there are many ways to lead to investment success. However, I only use the way I feel happy to use. Looking at charts everyday may make some people rich. For me, it makes me unhappy even though it may make me richer. The way I like to use is to put a company in a competition landscape and estimate the earnings/free cash flows for at least 10 years and discount the earnings/free cash flows. I believe a company's real value is ultimately determined by its long-term earning potential. Some short-term changes will alter a company's long-term potential while some short-terms changes will not. The short-term changes can refer to both positive and negative changes.
I usually write about airline, aerospace, transport and industrial stocks as I have followed these industries for many years, developed contacts and an in-depth understanding of their inner workings. I will post detailed analysis and a guide to most developments that occur at all stocks I regularly cover. Currently I cover most major U.S airlines, and aerospace firms. Over time I hope to expand my coverage of quality aerospace, airline, transport and industrial stocks.
One area I focus on is the airline industry. The airline industry is undergoing fundamental change, with only 4 major U.S airlines now, down from 12 just over 10 years ago. This consolidation has rationalized the industry and for the first time in history made it worthy of investing and making a profit in. All major U.S airlines with the exception of Southwest are still not investment grade and still have many hurdles ahead, leaving nice upside for investors willing to get into the industry at this stage.
In general, I love trading value stocks that I believe have significant upside compared to downside long term. I prefer medium cap companies with compelling value, growth, or momentum. I focus on a select list of quality stocks that I have rigorously vetted which I update weekly. I like to create high quality in depth articles on stocks that I am passionate about and hope they will be of help to other investors out there or those looking for ideas to get started.
Very young (25 years) retail investor, recent graduate of Architectural Engineering in Budapest, Hungary.
Born and lived 5 years in Bavaria (Germany), 15 years in the USA (east/west coast), 3 years in Hungary, 1 year in Slovenia, and now currently in Sweden. Can speak 3 languages fluently (Hungarian, English, German) and have a reasonable knowledge of Swedish. "Global citizen" and "third culture kid" are accurate labels to my way of life.
I assume that people know something I don't and therefore look for those with specific information rather than feel-good analyses written from lofty perspectives.
Recent graduate from Villanova with a Masters in Finance currently doing industry/company research on the retail sector. Level II CFA candidate with interests in valuation analysis and equity research. Willing to learn, so if I ask questions I am sincere in my intentions.
I have been handing the family portfolios since 1991. Being an expert poker player has helped me maintain a clear, concise and unemotional approach to the dynamic world of investing. Investing in stocks, ETF's and mutual funds for over 22 years has given me the experience to refine my approach to the point where my downside risk is generally lower than the norm. I am also a professional musician.
I am an event-based investor focusing on opportunities with hard or predictable catalysts - particularly companies undergoing demergers or mergers, or otherwise able to manufacture high-probability growth due to some quirk of corporate structure, capital structure, accretive share issuance, growth via acquisition pipeline, competitive advantage/reinvestment, or other high-probability mechanism.
I am always on the look-out - especially in context of the opportunities mentioned above - for supply and demand imbalances: forced or uneconomic sellers, predicable (exploitable) behavioral trends, or unusual securities that can't be held by many industry players. Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
