Asset Analysis Focus


Since 1975 Asset Analysis Focus (AAF) has provided subscribers with in-depth research reports on publicly traded businesses that are selling at significant discounts to our estimate of intrinsic value. We analyze these businesses utilizing a private equity approach. In the vast majority of instances, each company profiled has an identifiable catalyst for value realization. AAF is agnostic in terms of both industry or market capitalization.

The Annual Thematic Edition:

The annual thematic edition profiles an industry, compelling investment theme or area of the economy that is out of favor on Wall Street. The topics we have featured in past issues are often highly controversial, but in most instances, over the long-term, have proven to be prophetic.
