Identifying and investing in highly successful, fast-moving small businesses with tremendous growth potential, then closely monitoring their progress, is at the core of what my company does.

My company started as a classic value investing company, often mimicking Warren Buffett and other great investors, which is still a great way to go. Over time, as experience grew, I developed the skill to identify fast-moving small and microcaps early in their competitive lifecycle. The search process nowadays is highly automated, which greatly aids in their global discovery.

Research reports

My proprietary software generates a concentrated list of companies, better known as Hyper Value Creators (HVCs), with a high degree of potential multi-baggers (10x or more). You will get incredible value from these HVC reports because, I believe, they give you the quickest way to see where to look for your next 10 bagger. It will save you lots of time and money!

Let’s do the math. If you are an institutional investor and you find just one 10 bagger from these HVC reports, and you invest, let’s say €100.000, you’ll end up with €1 million. This €895 report is a bargain!

HVC reports can be generated on a global scale. Please let me know if there is a specific country that piques your interest: peter@thevaluefirm.com.

Value Investing

The Value Firm® is a classic value investing company, inspired by the thinking and teachings of investing legends like Warren Buffett and Seth Klarman. The company is all about good old-fashioned stock picking and is based in the greater Amsterdam area.

The number one idea is to view a stock as an ownership of the business and to judge the staying quality of the business in terms of its competitive advantage. Here is what Warren has to say.

Value investing, the strategy of investing in securities trading at an appreciable discount from their underlying value, has a long history of delivering excellent investment results with very limited downside risk.

Obviously, there is no such thing as investing without risk. We all know that. Every now and then, sudden, sharp downward swings in markets and the economy will happen. Whatever adverse scenario you can contemplate, reality can be far worse.

Business cycles and human interaction, the cycles of greed and fear, will continue to interact to create excessive swings in the markets. To handle hefty stock market volatility with care and wisdom is by no means easy.

There are exceptional investment professionals that consistently outperform the S&P 500. By doing fundamental bottom-up research, one stock at a time, based upon stock price compared to business value, they are able to identify companies that will outperform the markets.

Before I come to the final note, I would like to remind you that over the last ninety years, the S&P 500 has delivered a total return of more than 9% annualized. Most of us would be better off investing in the Vanguard S&P 500 index fund on a regular basis.And just leave it there for the rest of your life.

Professional investors have a long history of failing to beat the market after accounting for their fees. If you want to do better than the index, then you have to engage in active management with its costs, its uncertainty, and the risk that if you try to do better than the index, you might do worse than the index. The inconvenient truth is that even a high-caliber track record isn’t a guarantee of favorable future results.

The final note. The law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or entity that opens an account. The first step is the legally required customer due diligence documentation.
