Our investment philosophy: A post on the Investorfile way
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

Seven points on how we approach small cap stock investing for our blog.

This post is not written to claim that we are the most successful investment blog but rather to share Investorfile’s general philosophy on what has worked well for us to generate consistent returns for our Top Ideas.

1. We are a long-term investor

At Investorfile we buy small cap stocks on the basis of realizing long-term value not short-term momentum.

2. We are a contrarian by default

At Investorfile we never buy stocks with a herd of other investors as we seek value first. We are often the only active buyer when initiating a position in a small cap stock.

3. Our best investing ideas are our own ideas

At Investorfile most of (if not all) of our Top Ideas are not stocks recommended to us but are stocks that are discovered by us first. The confidentiality of such discoveries ensures the value of our small cap investments.

4. We target small cap stocks because there is an advantage

At Investorfile we recognize that the greatness inefficiencies in the marketplace are among small cap stocks. We take advantage of the mispriced investment opportunities.

5. We use the balance sheet for downside protection

At Investorfile we acknowledge that small cap stocks are risky investments and one must expect the unexpected. But small cap companies with strong balance sheets can weather unforeseen events and then return to prosper.

6. We do not speculate to hit a 10-bagger, but seek to invest in many 3-baggers

While earning 10 times on an investment is great, there is significant risk in investing too early in a small company. At Investorfile we try to reduce the speculation factor but still generate above normal returns for our small cap investment ideas.

7. We buy and continue to hold positions in all of our Top Ideas

Our interest aligns with Investorfile followers who choose to invest in our small cap stock recommendations. We own our words!
