Feature interview

Value Investment Principals has a 12-year track record focusing on unique deep value and under-covered stocks. Our CEO has 30 years of experience in the investment research, asset management, and HF industries, with all our analysts being MBA-qualified. Their research team is led by Milan Mehta. We discussed how a high net cash balance can act as a catalyst, how to incorporate technical analysis into the investment decision making process and what they look for in high dividend stocks.

Seeking Alpha: Walk us through your investment decision making process. What area of the market do you focus on and what strategies do you employ?

Value Investment Principals: We focus on value stocks that are under-covered and overlooked by the Street. Our investment approach gravitates towards companies that offer favorable risk-reward, and we search for stocks that have a value chart which are on the verge of bottoming out and forming a "U-shaped" curve. We search for companies that exhibit consistent growth and have been historically growing over long periods of time. This creates confidence amongst investors on companies' ability to outperform and hedge against cyclicality in the market. A combination of "deep value" multiples, strong growth prospects, high dividends, and clear upcoming catalysts to help unlock value - we believe this is an intuitively attractive combination for all investors. We generally are sector-agnostic and like to take our focus to a broad range of sectors.

We employ financial modelling and 5-year forecasts for all of our companies that we cover. Our models have rigorous ratio analysis, and we also use DCFs to validate our price targets. We have a long track record of outperformance and providing research to some of the largest Mutual Funds and Hedge Funds [Fidelity, Janus, Putnam and Elliott] in the world, so the quality of the work is really "institutional quality".
