Investment Strategy

I seek to find equities that are undervalued which provide opportunities for significant long capital appreciation, while keeping in mind risks inherent with each investment. I very much subscribe to long term Buffett-Munger style of investing in businesses that are less capital intensive (thus can give more cash back to its shareholders) and undervalued. Contrarian thinking with deep understanding of the business is important to also evaluate what market may be mispricing. Disciplined investing with consideration to "risk taken for the required return" is the goal. 

For example, I made a significant investment in ADM in mid-2012, when the stock was under $30 because a drought reduced its earnings that year. I did not know how long the drought would last, but expected that earnings would recover when the drought was over. I also saw that the risk of permanent capital loss was low because of the strength of the company’s financials and the importance of their products to the world’s economy.  Two years later, when the drought was over, I began to close my position at ~$50. Moreover, ADM continued as well as increased its dividends over those two years and also bought back some of its shares without taking on additional debt. Similar opportunities exist in different sectors at different times. I invest in those that can likely generate good returns over an investment horizon that is generally longer than most Wall Street analysts have the patience for.

I have an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from M.I.T which gives me the math background to analyze balance sheets and cash flows. But, it is my 10 years of experience as a cardiologist that gives me a deep knowledge of human psychology to understand management incentives and human fears better than most analysts, including those on Wall Street. I constantly read and learn about different companies. When I started investing and analyzing our personal earnings in the market, I soon realized that our returns were beating the market by a significant margin. That led me to establish RMF on Marketocracy.com to get an unbiased view of our returns, and over the last three years, RMF has substantially outperformed the market.
