Introduction is about value investing since 1997!

April 30 '17, marked our 20th Anniversary.

INTEGRITY IS OUR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE. is the intelligent investment club delivering unbiased, objective & professional viewpoints since 1997. frowns upon the SET/SEC and the Thai brokerage industry for issuing IPO's to foreigners living in Thailand while at the same time not making available the IPO prospectus in English.  Gulf Energy start​ed​ trading late last year​ as the largest Thai IPO, in 2017.  The company confirmed to us it has the English language prospectus which was offered to institutional investors abroad, but not to individual foreign investors in Thailand!?  Foreign and Thai investors  in IPO's are as the Thai SEC states  "encouraged to read this before investing",  besides then click a box at their Thai broker accounts that they did read this, even while its not available.   In my professional view, offering IPO's to a class of investors without the availability of a readable prospectuses goes against proper international Securities Industry standards or protocol regarding this.   January 31th 2017.     Original oil painting by Miguel Pedro.

Through this media since 1997, I share proprietary professional viewpoints, articles, in-person company visit reports with managing directors and regular Thai stocks investor intelligence on all aspects to successful investing.  We also run an active-member forum. 

"The Thai SET index was stale and boring for 2 1/2 years, the economy barely moving while corporate profits are on the rebound. Unemployment and inflation remain exceptionally low.  In September '17 the market woke-up with big cap stocks leading to flirt with all time highs.  Next year will mark the return to Thai democracy -while the US stock market seems peaking.  Thailand has initiated very large infrastructure projects rolling-out over the next couple of years.  Individual investors should realize there  are a number of smaller niche high growth stocks and turnaround situations...  Substantial share price appreciation can unfold in such leading group of smaller and mid sized higher growth firms where stock prices have not yet moved up.   Registered free users can view free articles from the past and learn about my advocated style of SET investing.   We have for years an established active member-lounge forum at this site where members and myself post/respond and comment with short added value insights.  October 31 2017.   Paul A. Renaud. 

Since April 1997, timely & original articles are regularly published here to first contributing members and in time to all registered users.  Original member articles selectively are released to free registered users some 4-6 weeks later.  Contributing Members have unrestricted access to all articles, advanced search engine, our active member-lounge postings and the monitored on-going 6-month model portfolios.  I answer questions then shared with all contributing members.  Members are informed at once automatically through an instant email, every time a new article or forum posting of any kind here.

"In SE Asia there are many great stock investor opportunities as the mega institutions only chase large caps, when in fact some 75% of the Thai economy is generated by smaller or mid-sized companies. Hence there are real "diamonds in the rough"...and these "taste great and are less filling"... but you will not find them in billion dollar portfolios."  Paul A. Renaud.  

Here to members I show regular and updated model- portfolios along with our active member-only forum postings, along with regular Thai investor expert comments/articles/company visit, expert reports and more. 

Over 2 million visited us since 1997. excels at investor performance over time through the rational and responsible value investing concept  -as seen objectively from a pro's investor point of view. Value investing here means growing earnings per share over time, along with high current dividend income in understandable & researched companies.  We are not stock promoters and never receive any remuneration of any kind from any listed company!  We here publish responsible & unbiased viewpoints, sans plus.

We help with market intelligent articles, professional expertise, Thai stock 6 month model portfolio's, stock investor ideas often based on in person company visits, which we rate/evaluate based on my long experienced on location view points.  I can help you get going, find a broker & answer short questions usually within 24 hours.    

As here documented to members all along: the full track record from year 2003 to inclusive 2015.  Since year 2003, I  regularly post 6-month model portfolio's which can be accessed only by members.  Hence a documented track record as witnessed by all members all along.

"I have appreciated your viewpoints this past year and am very happy with the results   Thanks again. I much look forward to reading the most intelligent economic/investment writing about Thailand to be found anywhere in the world.  Especially in terms of the performance of my investments. But also in expanding my knowledge of the workings of the SET."  A Member comment.  

Here are some comments given in the past by professionals:  Click here - 

Sharing of my expertise, viewpoints and independent research -full time- so to help create new wealth through the value and high dividend investing theme. This through my long on location expert knowledge, experience and strong connections in the segment of smaller and medium-sized Thai companies. Thai Stock Exchange is open to foreign investors since 1976.

Growth vs. ValuationI know it like very few others here.. for many of us its the right and rational way to higher investor returns over time -along with often lower than market volatility.  

We are not stock promoters and unlike others receive no fees/payments from any companies we follow!   I focus 100% on what I do best which is finding high dividend stock "gems" and then so shared to our members.  ****   

For over 24 years on location I have with focus, passion, high ethics and determination excelled giving viewpoints as seen from the Thai stock value investors' point of view..  The many years continued model portfolio's track record -as witnessed by our members all along- is validated as follows: 

 Calendar Years:     2003   2004   2005   2006    2007   2008   2009   2010    2011    2012     2013   2014:

% change each year: 88% (14)%  82%   32%  42%   (40)%  55%  50%  17.8%  45%  (year 2012),  12.8% (year 2013), 37.95% (year 2014)

Simple average, over past 12 years:         34.7 %,  per year.
Geometric average, over past 12 years:   28.8 %,  per year.

Above shown track record is with no financial stock shorting or hedging/puts which larger portfolios employ.  Realize, this is "armchair investing" and not my own, it's all based on documented model portfolio to members all along.  Of course future such returns will go down and up and there are never guarantees.  Past performance is not a guarantee to future returns. Paul Renaud
