I just want to welcome all value investors to this blog. I hope you find it a valueable source of fresh, and refreshing content. I don't intend to rehash the investment days news, because frankly I don't care if the markets went up or down.
My plan is to publish one original investment idea on this blog per month, with other value investing insights inbetween. If I cannot find a value investment idea I will let you know.
I should add this caution. If the market continues to rise it will become very difficult. Currently I only see some value in large cap US stocks and some select small to mid Canadian companies. Of the large cap US stocks it wouldn't bother me either way if I purchased or not. They are not stand out values but many are companies with strong franchises. They would be companies to own for the rest of your life.
I will also update periodically on how the investment ideas that I post perform. A full lookback will be performed and posted annually. Anything shorter is a waste of time.
I do work full time (Professional Engineer), have a family, and have some other responsibilities but I will strive to keep the content here top notch. Investing is a deep passion of mine, I would love to manage investments for a living. I do keep my living expense at a minimal, and I am likely one of the few people out there who don't have cable TV. I prefer having more time to read (about investing, 10-K's, and 10-Q's). If I can, I will make the switch as soon as I have passive income that will cover expenses. Like Buffett has said, not doing what you love is like saving up sex for old age.
That said I do have fairly decent investment funds for my age and I do find it fun working with the funds I do have. I also advise some family members as well.
