Lemonade: I don't get it $LMND

Posted On July 9, 2020
Back in 2012, Facebook bought Instagram for $1B. It's truly one of the greatest acquisitions of all time: today, Instagram is probably worth >200x what Facebook paid for it; in addition, buying Instagram destroyed a potential Facebook competitor, handicapped another (Twitter), and accelerated Facebook's mobile strategy.

Quickie idea / what am I missing: $PCG on bankruptcy emergence

The hope with this particular idea is to provide the jumping off point for a discussion of an idea I […]

Premium case study: Kontoor Brands $KTB

Posted On June 24, 2020
I recently went on "the special situations podcast", and on it I mentioned my premium service's June idea, Kontoor Brands (KTB). I'd been weighing posting premium ideas publicly once they'd played out as part case studies / part advertisements.

Cruise ship pirates: how $OSW's management plundered their shareholders

Posted On June 11, 2020
Yesterday I saw perhaps the strangest (financial) press release I've ever seen. OneSpaWorld (OSW) issued a press release applauding Stifel for publishing a research report that acknowledged OSW did not have enough cash to pay down their revolver and remain solvent.

Some things and ideas: May 2020

Posted On May 29, 2020
Some random thoughts on articles that caught my attention in the last month. Note that I try to write notes on articles immediately after reading them, so there can be a little overlap in themes if an article grabs my attention early in the month and is similar to an article that I like later […]

Comcast: buy the cable business, get everything else for (almost) free? $CMCSA

Posted On May 8, 2020
I spend a lot of time looking at and thinking about the cable / telecom / media sectors, and you can't spend any time on either of those without thinking about / looking at Comcast (CMCSA) given their ownership of Xfinity (the largest cable company in the U.S.) and NBC (one of the largest media […]

Renting some space in $IWG $IWGFF
