ChaPaVe Partners looks for opportunity in securities of companies that have a controlling shareholder who may be hampering value for non controlling shareholders. In this effort, we created the Tactical Tender Offer (TTO) to align minority shareholders’ interests with controlling shareholders’ interests because this segment has been overlooked by activist investors.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
