Why “Hammer Investing”?
Constantly attacking myths and the lazy assumptions we make and instead digging into the truth about a situation, like a dispassionate detective free from bias and ego, ought to be the goal of every investor so that is what I strive to do. Hammer Investing seemed like a fitting metaphor.
I search for that which is undervalued and where the discount to the intrinsic value provides a large margin of safety. I search in sectors that are either out of favor or in distress. I will usually search in the small cap space as less analyst coverage increases the chance of mispricings.
I go into more depth on this topic in two podcasts I was invited on:
And on Youtube there are two interviews that I have done with SmithWeekly.
First and foremost I hope to learn a lot in the process. Writing enables me to crystalize my thoughts and prevents me from jumping to conclusions too quickly. By publishing my thoughts the idea is to add more pressure on myself to be wrong less often in my analyses and hopefully this will make my processes more thorough than they otherwise would have been. For these reasons I can only recommend for others to also start blogging.
Why write in English when most of the analyses will likely be on Scandinavian companies?
My mother tounge is Danish and quite frankly it would be easier for me to write in Danish than in English. However, when blogging naturally you would like to be read by as wide an audience as possible – and English is the language of finance.

I do not accept responsibility for losses that are a result of buy/sell recommendations I make. I encourage you to do your own reserarch before making an investment decision.
