Stocks We’re Watching

This is the seventh post in our quarterly update series. In each post, we pick four stocks from our watchlist and share the latest updates on these businesses. These are not buy recommendations but we find these businesses interesting and we may build position (or buy more of those that are already in our portfolio) in them in future under these two conditions —

  1. Their business continues to do well and,
  2. They are available at valuation which we find reasonable with sufficient margin of safety.

You can see the earlier updates here.

Below we have four more companies that we’re tracking closely. We have made notes from their quarterly updates and the analyst conference calls.

Warren Buffett drew a very interesting analogy between Williams’ way of playing and how investing should be done.
