Ideas.

Finding value, seeking events, and collecting cash without getting your portfolio singed requires a great deal of research, analysis and patience. We find ourselves analyzing many different types of companies, securities and derivatives in a variety of sectors and geographic regions. We are picky but not selfish. Why waste the ideas we generate during this process...? Instead we share them by regularly posting our independent research on corporate debt, equity, and derivative instruments on line.  After all, distributing our research helps others see how we pick apart credits. You too may find our reports helpful in managing your own  investments - let us be your portfolio whisperer. With that in mind, here's a list of our recent research with links to the reports:
