Methodology

https://www.kalkine.com.au/images/methdology.jpg

  • At the core of our stock selection process is meticulous, hands on research. When our investment team examines potential recommendations for our research reports, we don’t just rely on numbers in a balance sheet. Our analysts dig deeper and look for new growth catalysts. Combining quantitative rigor and qualitative scrutiny, Kalkine’s Research Team seeks out the complete perspective of a company’s financial strength, growth prospects and valuation.
  • In-depth, conservative business appraisals underpin all decisions. Corporate management's capability, incentives, and business decisions greatly impact our outcome.
  • We approach equities through rigorous fundamental analysis of the drivers of potential investment risk and return. We look at both qualitative and quantitative factors in assessing the risk/reward parameters and perform extensive due diligence.
  • With regard to selling a stock we consider three criteria:-
  • Price approaches current appraisal.
  • Business' earnings power is permanently impaired.
  • Management proves incapable of building value and replacing leadership is not feasible.

Classification of Companies (in USD)

We classify companies as per the below classifications. Different investors have liking for different companies as per their investment strategy.



Recommendations

The recommendations are classified in the following categories:-

  • BUY BU -These are the stocks that we think are a buy currently. There are no guarantees, but by looking at the financial statements we are looking at odds and probabilities instead of certainties.
  • HOLD HO -These are the stocks that we are happy to hold. The hold has been put on these stocks in expectation of improvement in their price.
  • SELL SE -These are the stocks that we believe it’s a time to sell. We do not depend on market movement to sell a share, we simply think about a stock individually.
  • SPECULATIVE BUY SPEC BU - These are the stocks that we think are a buy with an associated risk factor(s). There are no guarantees, but by looking at the financial statements/ growth drivers, we provide the recommendation along side the key risks.
