Investing is half science and half art. Everyone is focused on the science part. Research and analysis, data and information. Countless books have been written on how the valuation should be done. But how you can implement the art part of this equation in practice? How to deal with ever-present uncertainty? Be creative in the research and come up with great investment ideas?


Story Investing provides a conceptual framework for dealing with the art part.


With this book, you can appreciate the power of narrative thinking, learn about techniques of great writers and storytellers, and apply these insights to investing.

Great investment is a great story


This book aims to address the issue of risk in equity investments by trying to solve “the observer and the observed paradox”.


To achieve good results, investors should simultaneously play two roles: the player and the judge. They can do this by looking at investment situations where the solution to “the observer and the observed paradox” is integrated into an equity investment itself. For example, a sum-of-parts valuation thesis makes one less dependent on other market participants.


Risk Investing will give you a range of solutions for addressing the risk problem by looking at the level of an individual security or company itself, as opposed to top-down portfolio and risk limits.

Investors have to identify ``risk-structure`` at the level of an individual company itself


Investing takes place in time. But there is a surprising lack of focus on time. We deal with valuation, risk, establish price targets.


But what about time and timing? Not everybody has a lifelong commitment to own the shares forever. Can you establish time and not only price targets? Is there a way to cross the conceptual chasm between market and real value of a stock? Is there a way to extract value from time? Get paid on an ongoing basis for waiting? Improve our results by time management of the research process?


Time Investing offers the reader a range of ideas for working with time dimension in investing.

You invest not only in business, you also invest in time


This book will help you improve your investment decision making and will offer you a range of thinking approaches that you can implement to achieve your investment objectives.


Includes such topics as special dividends, share buybacks, activist investors, time arbitrage and other useful concepts. Each chapter is supplemented with case studies of actual investment situations that illustrate the discussed concepts.
