Investment Strategy
Diversification is ... a hedge for ignorance

I use a mixture of dart throwing and technical analysis to identify undervalued stocks, and mesmerism to increase their prices. I had unmatched success with this combination, from march to september 2009.

You have probably wondered about the truth of the claim that Southern entrepreneurs - and the businesses they run - are shifty, unscrupulous and two-faced. We need take nobody's word for it because the data is available. Let's investigate!I got hold of a list of the postcodes of HQs of all the firms on the market, converted them into Latitude and Longitude, and merged this…

I took an accounting course a while ago, and partly for fun the professor described a forensic accounting technique, which I've been mulling over. In the spirit of Christmas, that time of year when we give away useless stuff to people we barely know, I thought I'd contribute the findings to the investing public. You can read about Benford's law on wikipedia. The article there…

You won't find anything new or unexpected in this piece - it will only confirm some common observations.I got interested in those network visualisations you see sometimes, and resolved to make one. As a slave to Twitter, and follower of some of this site's regulars, I thought mapping PI Twitter was a project. It's made with R and Gephi.First thing is to know what I'm…

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 alexa.com and app downloads from appannie.com. 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…

I wonder if, knowing that the portfolios are visible, if only to the site's owners, there are some 'shy suckers' not recording their punts in their portfolios? Like shy Tories not showing up in opinion polls..

RBG. I may be being over-serious, but what about the basic theme concept of this chain? Could that be at fault? Isn't the whole Cuban Revolution a little naff, if not completely discredited? Did Castro not die a billionaire? Can anyone sit and drink a Cuba Libre under a Che Guevara poster (yes, they have them) without looking like a complete buffoon?

I'm not sure you can take the smallest companies as a special case. Sure there's a purer corollation between Q and V but the trend is there right along the size scale. Some individuality is steadily leaching out of both Q and V as you go smaller til they become the same thing. Like opera and musicals, or space and time. Who can name this…
