The 8th Annual Value Investing Spring Conference will hit The Strip of Las Vegas on the 6th and 7th of May this year. Unlike the number of bad bets available in "Sin City" the conference provides an opportunity for serious value investors to glean information from and network with some of the world's most sought after financial opinions. There is now a 24 hour special offer (further details below).
This year's conference will be held at the Encore Wynn - Las Vegas, a man who epitomizes long-term investments come good in the land of the imploded casino.
Unlike other conferences of its type, the Value Investing Congress represents a truly world view and a slate of speakers unlike any other. Conference attendance is limited to roughly 500 attendees which means each person in attendance will have a genuinely profitable opportunity to network in addition to a great seat to hear from some of the nation and world's most prolific speakers when it comes to value investing.
This year's line up of speakers will include, among others:
- Steven Romick CFA
- David Nierenberg
- Zeke Ashton
- Guy Gottfried
- Geoffrey Batt
- Chan H. Lee
- Marcelo Lima
- Isaac Schwartz
- Christopher Mittleman
Steven Romick, who've we've covered here in the past at ValueWalk is worth the price of admission himself.
This group, which represents less than half of the speakers on hand, alone offers over 200 years of experience while they represent and manage such firms and funds as:
- First Pacific Advisors
- D3 Family Funds
- Centaur Capital Partners
- Bronte Capital
The list just goes on and on, and gets better and better.
It is difficult to quantify how many billions of dollars previous attendees of the Congress have invested. However, the list is prolific. Through a composite of reviews and features by magazines and publications that include: The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, Forbes, Kiplinger's and others, attendees and investors of all sizes can expect to learn, through speeches and interactive sessions....how to:
- Assess intrinsic value to invest with a large margin of safety
- Appraise management's capital allocation decisions
- Avoid costly mistakes most investors make
- Differentiate a true competitive moat from a short term advantage
- Detect "hidden" red flags in financial statements
- Identify profitable shorts
- Uncover value in international markets
- Identify opportunities for activist investing to catalyse value
- Make behavioural finance work for you
- Use long-dated call options (LEAPs) as an investment tool
- Analyse and realistically value distressed debt
For value investors, an investment of $2000 may turn out to be your biggest yet.
