Dear Reader,


Attached is our latest list of stocks passing value screens (low P/E, low EV/EBITDA, etc.), which don’t meet our investment criteria - and our reasoning.

For reports of stocks that pass our quantitative and qualitative standards:

 


 

Steve Schwarzman Bloomberg Interview


Some notes relevant to investing below:




11:45 Wait for prices to pick up


Leave the first 10-15% to someone else.


This is an interesting practical point because we focus on value received and ignore momentum/charts. While we will retain our value focus, we acknowledge this point in avoiding long periods of underperformance.


And it's not just about price. David Tepper made a similar point when he invested in Argentinian bonds after its default in December 2001 - he looked for increases in the country's bank deposits before investing, which indicated confidence in its government.


Sometimes it pays to wait for things to pick up.



14:00 Minimize risk


Entrepreneurs don't take on risk, they try to minimize risk. In investing, minimize risk by limiting your downside - perhaps by requiring substantial tangible/liquid asset values, and/or other business factors where you can't lose much.



15:15 Two or three key drivers


Look for the two or three key drivers in any investment that can make a mess of things. If you can get a grip on the variability of these factors, you can limit your investment risk.
