Why subscribe?

Fellow investors. I have decided to launch a paid subscription newsletter. The paid subscription newsletter will focus exclusively on “alpha rich” stock ideas that have potential to generate strong, market beating returns.

I plan to publish 1-2 high quality stock ideas per month. These will be exclusive research reports on my highest quality stock ideas. I will be taking a position in each idea that I write about to be fully aligned with subscribers and “eat” my own cake.

The newsletter will be priced at a low $10 dollars per month. I feel like this is more than fair and a “steal” for the high quality analysis I will be offering. I suspect one idea I publish could generate enough alpha to cover the cost of the subscription for more than a year.

Who am I?

As a background on myself, I spent many years on the buyside focused on fundamental analysis on potential investment ideas that could generate high alpha. I spent an additional five years as a private investor where I generated consistent returns. I recommended dozens of high quality investment ideas to the fund I worked for that, delivering alpha for our investors.

I’m an extreme value investor. I love stocks off the beaten path that no one else is looking at. Stocks that have been written off and forgotten about by the rest of Wall Street. “Dying” industries. Melting ice cubes. I don’t care if a company hasn’t grown its revenues over the past ten years. All I care about is free cash flow.

Most of my time is focused on microcap and nanocap companies because it is one of the most inefficient and alpha rich areas in the global market. This provides a huge opportunity for investors to generate strong returns through bottoms up, fundamental research.

My ideal investment has an asymmetric risk/return profile, with limited downside and significant upside. I protect my downside by focusing on companies with high cash positions, strong free cash flow and a potential “asset base” that could be sold if in the event I am wrong in my analysis.

I love investing in the most unloved and out of favored sectors or the market. My favorite stocks are the ones that have seen their share prices collapse and are trading at multi-decade lows. If a stock that I have purchased continues to fall I will double down on my positions assuming nothing has changed fundamentally. I’m a contrarian investor at heart.

Future developments

Given the demand for the stock picking service my team has decided to roll-out new features in the coming months.

  • chat service that every paying member can join. Still trying to figure out a good system for this but thinking either Discord or Slack. This will give us all an opportunity to network on investment ideas and research stocks on a real time basis.

  • A model portfolio. I will be creating a model portfolio for all paying subscribers. Was thinking of a $100,000 dollar portfolio that shows real time investments, buys and sells. This will give more transparency into what I own, how I think about portfolio management and allow subscribers to mimic the portfolio to their own extent.

  • Updates on buys and sells. Will be sending out updates whenever I buy or sell a security.

  • Access to my models and notes. This will be a more long-term development as I need to figure out a way to roll this out effectively. But eventually I would like subscribers to have full access to my financial models and notes on companies I am invested in.

I am excited about everything going on and the success of the community so far. I think we can create a special thing here and make some money during the process. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
