Detailed description
How to apply the value investing model to today's high-growth Asian companiesThis revised edition of Value Investing in Growth Companies serves as a step-by-step guide that lets investors combine the value investing and growth investing models to find excellent investment opportunities in emerging Asian companies. Though these two investing styles are very different, the authors' proprietary "jigsaw puzzle" model integrates them into a holistic investing approach that will help readers enjoy the kind of extraordinary results that investors like Warren Buffett or Peter Lynch built their fortunes on. This model focuses on four vital criteria that, when combined, pinpoint excellent companies in which to invest. Those criteria are: simple business models, quality management, healthy financial numbers, and accurate valuation. This book shows investors how to find growth companies in Asia that combine these four criteria for nearly surefire profits.* Offers a sensible and stress-free investing strategy that is ideal for anyone looking for investment opportunities in fast-growing Asian countries* This revised edition includes new case studies focused specifically on Asian companies and their unique characteristics* Perfect for investors who want to focus on high-growth, small-cap companies that offer excellent potential returns
