Why investing is not easy:
- Any investment idea has two aspects to it – the historical numbers and the narrative. An analyst’s job is not easy because decisions cannot be made only looking at the rear-view mirror but at the same time, there are certain patterns in history that are likely to repeat in the future. Thus, the analyst has to take cognisance of both these aspects.
- The Grading process at Multi-Act tries to strike an ideal balance between analysing the historical financials objectively and using subjectivity only where required. This prevents us from blindly believing in the narratives that either brokers or company managements are prone to using.
In this video, Rohan Advant, Research Analyst, Multi-Act Equity Consultancy Private Limited, explains how the Grading Framework of Multi-Act focuses more on the analytical questions than the intuitive questions. Further, he helps one understand the criteria used for classifying businesses into high quality and low quality.
