An old world stock with new world upside

Roger Collison

At a time when so many investors are focused on technology and growth, it is understandable why the market is less interested in a seemingly old-economy company like Joyce Corporation Limited (ASX:JYC). Joyce’s origins go back over 130 years, and at one point was Australia’s largest foam and furniture manufacturer,... Show More

Strategies to sleep well for small cap investors

Why investors often under-value simple businesses

Roger Collison

We have noticed that investors often gravitate towards exciting but unproven business models which promise revolutionary change.

This is particularly the case for industrials with global operations which in the last 6 months have had to contend with the impact of Brexit... Show More

Can smaller companies continue to outperform?

Roger Collison

The ASX Small Ords has out-performed the All Ords by 10% over the past 2 years. Will this continue longer term? We think so based upon the 5 underlying drivers of this recent out-performance which we believe will remain in place looking forward. The increasing scarcity of under-valued assets across...

Turning down the noise

This is consistent with the data presented in the chart below which shows that global fund management cash levels are currently at multi-year highs. This highlights just... Show More

How to find high quality smaller companies

Roger Collison

A sobering fact: 81% of ASX listed companies with a market cap below $100m are currently loss-making. And another: 90% of the same companies don’t pay a dividend. These are decisively low hit rates for investors focused upon predictable shareholder returns in stable business models. We believe knowing and understanding... Show More

Investing in family companies

Roger Collison

In our experience, there is no one magic formula which guarantees out-performance in every scenario. However, over many years of working as a professional investor, you notice clear similarities and trends which generally hold true. One of these themes is that the share price performance of family companies often seem... Show More

At DMX Asset Management we always compare a stock’s intrinsic value with its current market value when making investment decisions. Our objective is to only invest when intrinsic value is far in excess of the... Show More

Small ASX companies doing big things globally

Roger Collison

The Australian smaller companies universe is home to a number of companies which are building global leadership positions in their respective niche markets, and yet somewhat surprisingly remain largely unrecognised in the local investment community. Identifying these types of businesses is both our passion and our bread and butter. We... Show More

Our approach to value investing

Roger Collison

Value investing requires discipline and an ability to see through the noise so as to buy when others are fearful. With a good degree of self-awareness and an open mind we strongly believe it remains a superior investment strategy, and one which can lead to substantial outperformance. This article addresses...

Low liquidity: Friend or foe?

Roger Collison

Smaller companies generally trade with lower liquidity than larger companies reflecting their lower market caps, smaller market following, and large founder stakes. Contrary to popular opinion, we view lower liquidity as core to the smaller company investment opportunity since smaller companies only trade at low liquidity levels when they are... Show More

The correlation beauty of MicroCaps

Roger Collison

We are often asked why micro cap funds tend to trade at such low correlations to the broader market. With market correlations as low as 0.1 (or less), some micro cap funds could be questioned regarding potential correlation data errors. However, the correlation data does not lie. Show More
