At the New York 2011 Value Conference (October 17th, 2011). Gottfried discussed his long position in The Brick (TSE:BRK), a specialty retailer of appliances and furniture based in Canada. He provided a detailed presentation about the company’s business quality, balance sheet, management, and opportunities. Shares of the stock are up approximately 120% since the presentation.
Many observed that Gottfried’s comments on the certain stocks during the Value Investing Congress seemed to increase their value. Then at the 2012 Value Investing conference in New York, Gottfried stated that the shares of Canam Group Inc. (TSE:CAM) were undervalued and recommended it. Investors responded positively to Gottfried’s recommendation, and the stock climbed 12% for the day.
Gottfried also discussed his thesis for Trans World Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ:TWMC) during the Value Investing Congress in May 2012. Since the recommendation, the stock value increased by 54 percent.
