Another 25er batch with in total 6 candidates for my watch list. Enjoy (and only around 650 or so to go…..)
126. Norddeutsche Steingut AG
18 mn market cap ceramic tile manufacturer. Despite building boom, stagnating/shrinking sales and increasing losses. P/B below 0.5 but high bank debt. “Strong pass”.
127. DCI Database AG
A quick “post mortem” on three stocks that I recently exited: Expedia, Cars.com & Record Plc. All three were disappointing in absolute or relative terms and especially in two cases I really made mistakes.
Some days ago, I sold my Expedia shares with a small ~10% profit, although the stock dropped by almost -30% in one day after the Q3 result announcement.
What happened ? Well, Google travel seems to have taken a big dent out of Expedia’s business. I even wrote about Google travel some months ago but didn’t actually do anything. This was my takeaway back then:
And another 25 stock batch with some very interesting companies. At some point in time I will release a table with all the stocks and a link to the respective posts.
Nr. 101: Baumot Group AG
36 mn market cap company that calls itself the “clean air” company. According to the company huge potential if hardware exhaust filtering for problematic Diesel cars would kick in which the company is manufacturing. However, currently the company is in deep trouble, sales tanking and huge losses. Several capital increases and debt equity swap. “pass”.
Nr. 102: BHS Tabletop AG – ISIN: DE0006102007
This is another book that I have been waiting for to read for some time. Jim Simons is maybe not a household name in investing, but his Renaissance Technology fund (Rentech) has clearly on of the best track record of any investment vehicle in recorded history. However, other than some other famous investors, Rentech was (and still is) so secretive that hardly anyone had a clue how he/they did it.
