OUR Products

Translating Research into Actionable Intelligence. Profitable Investments for Global Money Managers

The Edge look at and analyzes ideas in three very under-covered areas:

1) Spinoffs – the creation of an independent company through the distribution of new shares of an existing business or division of a parent company.

2) Special Situations – an unusual occurrence that has a significant likelihood of changing the future direction of a company and materially affecting its value.

3) Activist Investing – buying a sizable portion of a company's stock with the intention of exerting pressure on the management group to make a particular set of changes to the business.
