Global uncertainties caused by trade tariffs, increasing interest rates and monetary tightening policies..

How should investors allocate their monies given the assumed foundation of capital markets is being shaken? We see long-time blue-chip high-yield companies get shaken to their core, while on the other extreme, highly valued companies gets priced up to 50x, 100x Price-Earnings valuations and beyond.

Could these highly valued companies’ valuations be corrected? Should fellow investors focus on beaten-down companies?

Case Study 1

Overlooked F&B business returned more than 225% from June 2016 to July 2017.

This commonly overlooked F&B business can be found in neighbourhood food courts and had long been brushed aside as a fad of the past.

In June 2016, we highlighted their new food segment was growing fast, as seen in the top picture with the long queues for their food. This new segment provided a strong boost to their organic growth. Moreover, the market over-reacted and re-rated their valuation up as well, hence the stratospheric price now.

Case Study 2

This company is up about 100% from May 2017 to February 2018.

While its peers sought to do “interesting” mergers and acquisitions to hype up their presence (valuations and share price?), this food condiment company sought after mastery in their products, and consumers voted with their wallets because they simply cannot argue with their taste buds – i know because we tasted their food! Investors, meanwhile, voted with their money too.

At this point, its valuation is still reasonable and at a stark discount to its peers. The out-performance is due to 1) significant organic growth and 2) better-than-expected results. i believe their best years are still ahead of them with one new segment growing well after years of investments.

This forms the basis of my investment method – investing in high quality companies that grow, ground-up, despite volatile economic and political issues. i believe it is ever more important to invest in high quality businesses amidst this raging market.

Case Study 3

This company is up some 67% from March 2017 to July 2018.

In March 2017, i made a presentation to a close group of friends on why i think this unique experiential company will double in 3-5 years, despite the volatility i was observing then, and even though the company has just reached its all time high. Immediately after that presentation, the price came down some 10%.

Subsequently, due to their improved performance and management’s aligned capabilities, their operating income improved by more than 50%, and investors started rewarding them.

Trade Tariffs? NKorea Nuclear Threat? Increased Interest Rates?
