Head of research Thierry Laduguie emphasises that achieving investment success is a gradual process, requiring the ability to identify emerging trends early on and exercising patience. While some promising ideas may not materialise immediately, attempting to time investments in the short term can result in missing valuable opportunities. Thierry underscores that the most lucrative investment returns are realised over the long term. The key lies in recognising markets or companies with significant potential, making the investment, and maintaining a steadfast approach. He remains actively engaged in monitoring the economy and markets, employing macro trends and Elliott wave analysis for decision-making.

The BTI gave a sell signal in February 2015, a few months later the stock market started a major correction, the decline ended in 2016. Watch the video

Things I am looking for when I select a company
Price-to-Earnings (P/E) ratio: stocks with low P/E ratios, ideally near or below 10. This suggests the market may be underestimating the company’s earnings potential.
Companies with good cash flows:
Companies with good cash flows tend to be reliable dividend payers:
Excess cash available: Strong cash flow indicates a company generates more money than it needs to operate and reinvest in the business. This excess cash can be distributed to shareholders in the form of dividends.
Financial stability: Good cash flow signifies financial stability and resilience. These companies are less likely to face financial stress that could force them to cut or suspend dividends, even during economic downturns.
Long-term focus: Companies with healthy cash flows often prioritize sustainable growth and shareholder value creation. This aligns with a consistent dividend policy, building trust and attracting dividend-seeking investors.
Companies with strong fundamentals:
Sustainable competitive advantage: I look for companies with a strong product/service, something that protects them from competition and ensures long-term profitability.
Solid financials: I analyze the company’s balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement to assess its financial health, debt levels, and profitability.
I don’t follow the crowd: Value investors often go against the market sentiment and invest in stocks that are out of favour or ignored by most investors.
Be patient: Value investing is a long-term strategy. Don’t expect quick profits. Be prepared to hold onto your investments for years until the market catches up to the true value of the company.
Additional factors to consider:
Market sentiment: A bear market or sector-specific downturn can present opportunities for finding undervalued stocks. I am looking for stocks with strong relative strength, which means stocks that outperform the general market during a market decline.
Elliott wave analysis: Stock markets move in cycles, Elliott wave analysis enables me to assess the position of the stock market. If the stock market is near a low I will add stocks to my portfolio. If the market is near a high I will reduce my exposure.
Catalysts: I look for upcoming events or changes that could potentially unlock the value of the company and send the stock price soaring. For example companies whose profits are highly linked to a specific commodity’s price, like mining companies and gold, stand to see significant profit surges when that commodity’s price soars.
