  • Hayward offers a wide range of pool equipment and automation systems.
  • I believe that Hayward takes advantage of its strong networks as well as a respected product that offers many advanced features.
  • The company performed financial very well in recent times. However, some headwinds are expected.
  • Nevertheless, with its fundamental offering combined with attractive growth opportunities, I believe that a forward P/E of 10.27 is a nice buying opportunity for the long term.

I believe that the goal of investment analysis is to basically assess the risk/return ratio and conclude whether an investment is under, over, or correctly valued. I do this by first categorizing the specific investment (value/growth/other), following by an extensive analysis that would fit that category. Such an extensive analysis would consist of as many as possible relevant qualitative and quantitative aspects that might impact the return and or risk of a specific investment. I especially like writing about undercovered stocks. It fascinates me to unravel the mystery and potential of such a stock. However, I also enjoy switching it up, learning as much as possible about all types of investments, types of risks, types of returns for all types of investors. The markets have too many interesting investment opportunities, that it would be a waste to just focus on a small part of it.  My goal is to fairly, extensively, and accurately analyze investments and present them to my reader in such a way as well.
