“It’s only when the tide goes out that you learn who’s been swimming naked.”
– Warren Buffet
Inspired by a legendary investor, we chose the name ‘Low Tide Investments’ first and foremost, because we are value investors. We do not engage in speculation. We look for investments with a margin of safety to invest in for the long-term, through any type of market. Investors often don’t appreciate the risks that they are taking in their portfolios until they are tasked with adverse conditions. We look to mitigate excessive risk taking through rigorous fundamental analysis. When the tide goes out, we will be fully clothed… hopefully.
Living near the beaches of New England we see our coastal tides ebb and flow daily. Just like our shoreline, markets ebb and flow due to changes in investor behavior. We strive to do in-depth investment research in order to uncover what we believe to be profitable investment opportunities with strong risk-return profiles that present themselves given the prevailing market sentiment. After seeing the effects that The Great Recession had on investor portfolios, we understand the importance of managing risks that can withstand any type of market. Whether due to emotions or mandates, markets will shift and maneuver, and we expect that our due diligence, long-term mindset, and margins of safety will allow us to succeed. We do not limit ourselves to specific market caps, countries, or exchanges and believe that value can be found anywhere, in any type of market.
We look forward to sharing our ideas and engaging in thoughtful dialogue with our readers. Remember to check back for updates and new content.
