About this blog

Heretic is a word of Greek origin meaning anyone who does not conform to an established attitude, doctrine, or principle. The heretic investor is passionate about equity markets and has been an independent retail investor for almost 15 years. The heretic investor has worked as an Equity research analyst for several years at a Global (at the time) investment bank covering the General Retail sector.

The goal of this blog is primarily to discuss investment ideas that can generate “alpha”, discuss themes that move share prices and generally foster the debate on the performance of any given stock at a time or the performance of a company’s operations. This blog hopes to create better informed investors by commenting on events that move the markets, attempting to provide an explanation for big moves and if possible predict share price moves of the companies under discussion. This should result to better educated investment decisions, which is the holy grail of this blog.

Initially the stocks this blog will be discussing come from the General Retail space given this heretic investor’s experience in the sector although comments about the wider equity markets and important news flow may also form part of the posts. With time the possibility of covering more stocks, more geographies or even more asset classes cannot be excluded as long as the ideas are…heretic.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are strictly those of the heretic investor and it goes without saying that there is no guarantee they will prove right. The heretic investor may have an open position (long or short) on any stock (or other asset class) this blog discusses at any given time but will be sharing intentions and level of conviction in this blog in every case. Any investment idea discussed here is not intended as advice but rather as an intellectual challenge.

Last but not least, there could be typos or other grammar mistakes in any of the posts for which I apologise in advance. The goal is not to excel in the English language but to add value to any investment debate.

When passion about investing becomes an heretic dialogue
