Prove Your Worth CAPS: Give Me 3 Stock Pitches
Haven't posted a blog here in awhile. Activity in CAPS-land has certainly died down over the past few years, but I need some input for a new project and this seems like the perfect forum (so long as people are still reading).
I've been slacking off on my investment writing over the past year and I want to start writing and researching more. I've decided to try out a new concept "15 Minute Analysis." I take three stock pitches, and then I analyze the companies myself for 15 minutes, and give my opinion based on that. The goal is to find out as much as I can about the company and provide some sort of basic "guesstimate" of valuation in that short timeframe.
What I need from you all: investment ideas. If you want to participate, here be the rules:
Pick a company and ticker symbol. Then, give me maybe 2-5 sentences worth ("a pitch" in CAPS terminology) about why the company is a good / bad / interesting / etc investment. I'll read over the pitches and pick out three companies that I find interesting for the column.
This can be a stock you want to invest in. It can be a stock you hate. Or it could be one that you find fascinating. Doesn't really matter. For the record, I'm probably more likely to pick companies out of sectors that are more amenable to a quick and dirty analysis, which likely means no biotech start-ups, complex insurance investments, etc.
The goal here isn't to write a thorough research report. It's merely to help start the research process for others doing their own due diligence. If this idea is successful, then the articles will be posted over at Seeking Alpha.
Give me some pitches, peoples!
