Building Value in 2015

New Years party
New Years

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great time with friends and family over the holidays.

While visiting family, I started thinking about my New Year’s resolution for 2015. Looking back over the past few years, I’ve been rather focused on looking for value. While that has been great, I want to pivot a bit in 2015. This year I want to focus more on building value. Instead of just looking for undervalued opportunities, I want to focus on creating value. That will involve enhancing my current sites, creating new services, and providing more personal value to my family, friends and coworkers.

What are your goals for 2015? Please share them in the comment section below.

    Hi George, first, I wish you a nice 2015!
    What do you mean by “building value”? Share with growthing prospects and undervalued?!
    Thanks for your backtests. It gave me ideas as I’m currently writing my thesis about value. I would like to develop a screening method to discover small undervalued companies with a growthing catalyst. Nevertheless, I totally understand that screening is just the first step of a long investment process… I might send you my thesis soon as I finished.
    Cheers,
    L.

    I was thinking of building value by creating new services for my online web business. The first I’ve taken was to build a series of informative videos for value investors. I’m also revamping Value Investing News and I also just launched TopBotz. I’m also consider writing some form of ebook this year if I can come up with a good topic for the book.

    I look forward to seeing your thesis soon.

    Just a quick question; when you did your backtest, have you taken into account the report biais?
    As an example, a company provides Q4 during ~march, thus backtesting according to a historical Q4 on the 31st december would skew your result.
