I will now spend less time searching new companies, (I did a lot of A to Z stock lists), and more time analysing them, so I will push my premium content to 10 write ups a year.
I subscribed to a Polish paid research service to get more understanding of this market, get more ideas about hidden champions in Poland. The name is eastvalueresearch.com. (not a sponsored link here). I am trying to know this market more and to discover tips or things to avoid there.
Japan Lifeline, a medical devices company that I wrote up, published a nice slide deck about their challenges and opportunities. So far the thesis has not worked out, and it’s not great, but no downside risk as also materialised. Just a boring stagnation with dividends being paid.
Poulaillon, the French bakery chain, is sheltered from energy price shocks. Article and results: Ebitda is maintained despite record inflation costs, and Q4 2022 revenues are growing again 22% YoY. Water segment costs should reduce in the future and they should recover margins but even if not, ebitda is massive compared to capitalisation. Links in French
Newlat foods (Italy), with good 2022 revenues. Link

This month I wanted to show a the filter for ”Blue chip” filter in DMs. Not the fastest growers but solid cheap cash flows in this list.
