  • They did very well, but II found it somewhat funny that the best performer in the Partners Fund was Tucows, which is this year down from 70$ to 55$.

    • Well, back in the good old days stocks actually went up and down. These days, most stocks only go up….

      • In January a short thesis was published against tucows, from an anonymous sorce called “copperfield recearch”. This thesis is mainly attacking the company for the fact that Tucows refuses to violate net neutrality and first amendment rights, additionally for a revenue loss of about 500.000 USD. Additionally it attacks ad personam some of the biggest shareholders that are our guys from TGV/
        As nearly all short thesis show some success in the short distance I do not wonder that tucows got down a bit.

        Even if I propose reading short thesis for every company you think about, IMHO this is among the weakest short thesis I have seen – and I am not yet convinced Tucows is worth its share price.

  • Saggau scored very very high… Good pick and good patience !

  • Good observation. I try to look at them at some point in time……however one has also to be careful not to get into “group think” too much…..

  • Thanks for These links!
    Interestingly two letters have the same Top Pick, Distribution Now.
    Partners Fund increased it’s share in DNOW, while Rubicon Stockpicker opened a new, significant position.

    As they are both part of TGV they will have talked about it. Nevertheless it is auch reason for me to look again into DNOW. Perhaps you also may look again?
