Fat Pitch Financials focuses on special situation stocks and value investing. George Silva runs the company and is an economist, holds two Ivy League degrees (BS, Cornell University and Masters, Yale University), and has twenty years of experience investing in individual stocks.
Fat Pitch Financials uses a bottom-up approach to examining companies. George evaluates the fundamentals of a business to estimate the underlying intrinsic value of its stock. Sifting through reams of securities filing with a unique eye for relatively low risk value opportunities provides a majority of the best investment ideas.
In 2004, Fat Pitch Financials started out as a personal blog project to explore the value investing techniques of Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham. During that process, George discovered that much of Warren Buffett's early investment success was attributed to "workout" opportunities. He began searching for current workout opportunities and sharing them on the blog, and he set up a small experimental portfolio to explore the potential of special situation investing. The popularity of the blog and portfolio led the launch of the premium subscription service for special situation investors called Fat Pitch Financials Contributors Corner.
1. Performance of the portfolio manager's account is calculated by Covestor on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and broker commissions. Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Covestor's trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".
2. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Periodic and since inception performance returns are calculated daily. Monthly vs. S&P 500 return and the corresponding spark chart is calculated to the most recent month end date.
3. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by Covestor, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
