Follow-Up Interest Post: Resideo Technologies (REZI) – Stock Falls, My Interest Rises

The Resideo spin-off has taken place. And the stock has traded on its own for a bit now. So, I thought I would very quickly re-visit the stock here. You can check the ticker REZI (Resideo Technologies). It’s $19.56 a share as I write this. Here is a link to the press release announcing the completion of the spin-off: https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/REZI/news/story?e&id=1207602 “Honeywell distributed one share of Resideo common stock for every six shares of Honeywell common stock held as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October...

Resideo: Honeywell’s Boring, No-Growth Spin-off Might Manage to Actually Grow EPS for 3-5 Years

Yesterday, Honeywell set the distribution date for the spin-off of its home comfort and security business “Resideo”. So, I thought now would be a good time to do an “initial interest post” on Resideo. In this article, I’ll give my first impressions of the stock and then I’ll conclude by giving you an idea of how interested I am in following up with this stock idea. As always, I’ll grade the idea on a scale ranging from of 0% interest to 100% interest. To give...

Geoff’s SEC Filing Notes for: Resideo (a Planned Honeywell Spin-off)

Notes on Honeywell’s planned spin-off of Resideo Technologies I’m trying something new here. A lot of you want to see more “initial interest” write-ups from me. But, those write-ups are actually step two of my investment process. I first read a 10-K (or, in this case, a spin-off document) on EGDAR and mark-up that SEC filing. I make my notes directly on the 10-K through a combination of highlights and questions, comments, etc. in the margin and at the bottom of the page. I never...

Outperformance Anxiety

To Focused Compounding members: I spend a surprising amount of time talking with members about other investors – investors who are doing better than them. The truth is: returns much beyond 20% a year aren’t even worth thinking about. Sure, you can find investors who have done better than 30% a year for a ten year stretch. I have a copy of Joel Greenblatt’s “You Can Be a Stock Market Genius” sitting here on my desk. And if I flip to the back of that...

Pre-Judging a Stock

Monday, August 6th – Butler National by VETLE FORSLAND Tuesday, August 7th – Northfield Precision Instruments by LUKE ELLIOTT To Focused Compounding members: This week, a Focused Compounding member sent me a link to a blog post about Brighthouse Financial (BHF). Brighthouse Financial is the spun-off retail business of MetLife. Although websites often list Brighthouse Financial under the industry group “Life Insurers”, the stock is really a seller of annuities. Many of these annuities are tied to the performance of the S&P 500 or other...

Doubt as a Discount

Saturday, June 9th – Hamilton Beach Brands by ANDREW KUHN To Focused Compounding members: Let’s play a game. I ask you a series of questions. You give me a series of answers. I then test the answers you give to prove them false using as unfavorable a definition of false as I feel like. You have $1,000 in your pocket. You can’t leave the room. You can’t use your phone. And you can’t take off your shoes. I offer you even money odds on each...

Stylistic Skew

Wednesday, June 27th – Maui Land & Pineapple by GEOFF GANNON To Focused Compounding members: This week, Vetle Forsland was our guest for two podcast episodes. One was about GameStop (GME). The other was about Entercom (ETM). You should listen to them both. What stood out to me in those two episodes was Vetle’s style as a stock picker. GameStop sells – among other things – physical copies of video games. Entercom owns terrestrial radio stations. A lot of investors think these two stocks are...

Relative Regret

To Focused Compounding members: One of the most difficult things for investors to deal with is to watch other get richer faster than you. In the stock market, the same choices are available to everyone. So, if someone is up 20% this year, they are up 20% purely on a collection of opportunities you passed on. Two things make this even tougher for the people reading this memo. One, you judge yourself on your relative results versus a benchmark like the S&P 500. Two, you...

There’s Always a Simpler Problem to Solve

Wednesday, June 13th – Monro by DAVE ROTTMAN   To Focused Compounding members: As a stock picker, when you’re first faced with the decision to buy or not buy a stock – it seems like a complicated question. Consider the mental math problem of 54 times 7. There are a couple ways of tackling this problem. The simplest though is to multiply 50 by 7, getting 350 and then multiply 4 by 7 getting 28. You add 350 to 28 and get 378. There are...
