Investment Principles & Shareholder Guidelines

I had said I wouldn't make a post this Sunday, but I am finally able to submit the Investment Principles & Shareholder Guidelines, those who have secured one of the initial places in the foundation format can contact us to receive the form. The contact details are in the document, please call us before committing cash, because we are limited to 20 shareholders under our foundation (Pty Ltd) structure, and we don't want the cash for the July 1 issue to hit our account until the last part of June.

The EGP20 index

As I have mentioned previously, the vast majority of our energies in respect of valuations are concentrated outside of the ASX200.  The reason of course being that we seek to look where very few other eyes are going and in this way, hope to find value others have missed.

What If?

One of the statements I've often heard used by those who try to justify their compulsive ‘undersaving’ or ‘underinvesting’ is “what if I get hit by a bus tomorrow”, or some such morbid, doom-saying prediction.  The inference here is that life is full of uncertainty, so better to enjoy the full measure of your discretionary income in the here and now, than to sock some money away and risk the prospect of leaving behind some inheritance by accident should an unexpected disaster befall you.

Valuing Companies Part 2

You may have noticed I do a lot of 2 part posts.  The reason being is that I start off with a short sharp investing principle I think readers might enjoy, and by the time I’ve typed it out, it runs to 3 pages and is too big for a single post.
