We all look for quality businesses … at the same crowded places. I placed a bet on Qualitás elsewhere.

We are all looking for high quality businesses. Mostly this high quality is apparent (to everyone) only when the price has reached levels from where it is very much fun to look backwards. Many investors find high quality businesses within the ranks of well known companies and better known stocks (and ticker symbols). Maybe I have found something off the beaten path in less crowded markets …

The world needs cheap high-quality generics. And investments! A hidden growing producer might do …

Fundamental Valuation of Check Point Software (CHKP)

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. is an Israeli Company, that develops and sells Information Technology Security products. It is growing much slower than its highflying peers (Palo Alto, Fireeye, Fortinet) but it is very profitable. I do not have a good IT knowledge, but anyway, I wanted to perform a DCF Valuation of this Company for a long time now!
