What makes a company “good”?

When we are analyzing a company to recommend for the long haul, we always ask ourselves…Can this company change the industry it’s in or can it change the world?  If it has the potential to do one of those two things, it’s going to be good. However, the company must also be delivering on the growth side as well. Fundamentally, we look at the health of the company by examining the financials. We also look at the valuation metrics and forward growth projections. We often check out their competition to see if there are potential issues to watch out for or great advantages that they may have over others in their field.  

Dollar Cost Averaging

Joji is a huge advocate of dollar cost averaging, especially for younger investors.  It’s an unfortunate reality that many investors have a tendency to average down too soon. Joji doesn’t encourage averaging down, in a good company that he believes in, unless it’s down 50% or more. If you are able to ride the wave, it’s better to just continue to add funds each month, and then wait.   

Current Market Conditions

Joji thinks we have developed a “bottom”, but he doesn’t think it is THE bottom, meaning things could continue to trend down.  He tries not to get wrapped up in all of the media hype and spin or listen to politicians that may be spewing a narrative that supports an agenda. Markets go up and markets go down, but it’s critical to remember that the single most important thing about the stock market is interest rates. So, you can be in a recession, and you can have rates collapsing, and that’s going to end up being a great buying opportunity…even if the recession isn’t over yet. We’ve already seen that during the pandemic.   .
