“Catalyst Investment Research not only finds where the hidden gems are buried but also brings along the excavation equipment to help dig up the value.”

Author - Extreme Value Hedging: How Activist Hedge Funds are Taking on the World

Recent studies reveal significant increases in a company's share value shortly after an activist investor discloses an ownership position. Specifically, according to research conducted by professors at New York University’s Stern School of Business, hedge fund targets earn 10.2% average abnormal stock returns during the period surrounding an ownership disclosure with the SEC. Furthermore, the research finds that these abnormal returns do not dissipate in the one-year period following the ownership disclosure. Instead, hedge fund targets earn an additional 11.4% abnormal return during the subsequent year.

Since our research team analyzes EVERY active investment disclosure with the SEC, we find the best investment opportuntities with a near-term catalyst for value improvement. Catalyst Investment Research singles out companies with extraordinary value potential where activist investors have taken sizeable investment positions and are pressing management to unlock hidden pockets of value. Each research report examines the activist's investment thesis, their track record of success in previous interventions and the likelihood that the activist will be instrumental in boosting value in a short period of time.

In addition to this analysis, we examine the fundamental value inherent in the target's business and determine if the Company is truly trading at a discount to it's intrinsic value. The unique combination of these two views on value is what we believe creates a powerful catalyst investment opportunity and, ultimately, generates outsized investment returns. Lending credence to this is the performance of the companies we have previously covered. To date, companies we have issued research on have gained as much as 280% in value in less than 30 days!
