Diversification is ... a hedge for ignorance

There's much disappointment about the lack of an article on BooHoo today, so I'm going to step in. Prepare to be further underwhelmed. I'm wanted to see how BOO compared to Asos subsequent to the launch of Boo's app, and you can get the data to do this: a moving average of web traffic from and app downloads from I only have the…

Here are some graphs: they show a bunch of companies placed according to the automatically generated Earnings-Power (vertical-axis) and Graham valuations (horizontal) from this site. EPV is supposed to consider the firm as it stands today, Graham as the firm it will grow into. AIUI. Overvalued is top left, Undervalued bottom right. No particular rationale for the choices of firms: some are people's picks for…

Snoozebox's latest development is the Snoozy, which looks more like a tent than a hotel. I'm not sure how much of a defensible moat tents have. As a business. Maybe there's a good franchise business in there, based on the excellent design and branding, but without the heavy metal?

It's a bit anticlimactic, after all the lexical flourishes, to end the piece with the hackneyed phrases "you need to be in it to win it” and "The trend is your friend". But i do very much like the idea of there being a lot of gold connoisseurs out there, discussing the aesthetics of the marks stamped into their bars. (tat's literary criticism there, not…

About the difference between finance and other domains of knowledge: finance is constantly altering its own reality. Innovations and reform of institutions change the environment the institutions are trying to control. Of the other domains you (Paul) mention maybe only Medicine can also do this: antibiotics are changing the nature of bacteria, and we'll see a crash if they fail. I took a history of…
