Seminar: "How Small-Caps Outperform: Finding / Being Diamonds in a Sea of 10,000"

16 October 2015 (Fri)

The presentation would cover the following topics:

  • How small-cap stocks outperformed other asset classes over 80 years.
  • Overview of 10,000+ small cap companies across Asia Pacific.
  • How stock selection makes a much bigger difference in small caps.
  • 4 features of small-caps: lack of sell-side research, low levels of institutional ownership, high insider ownership and business quality.
  • How small-cap executives showcase their business to investors to attract capital, develop strategic partners and power their growth.
  • 6 factors for evaluating investments: competitive position, economic profitability, financial strength, reinvestment runway, management effectiveness and market valuation.
  • Case studies on how successful investors use public information like company filings to avoid hidden traps and find outstanding investments.

In Hong Kong, there are over 1,700 listed companies, mostly unknown to investors, except for the 50-100 largest companies. Attracting global investors to small companies can help executives raise new capital and facilitate business growth. Finding and investing in good small caps can help investors achieve outsized risk adjusted returns. This presentation demonstrates practical methods that navigate the ground realities in Asia.
