Time to fire up the bore port again. It was a lot of fun to follow and super educational back in the late 90s.

I'll track it.

I think it will be wicked boring and the goal will be to hold 6 names plus or minus 1 or 2. No more than 10. The goal will be know thy company well -- no diversification -- strictly business.

With that -- I've got a system that I've not used in practice but have a working knowledge of to screen numbers. We can also use Greenblatt's old stock market genius book to get fresh ideas.

If anyone wants to join in -- great.

Ok -- so I have some work to do. I want to have some continuity with the past (not necessarily to be politically correct -- but history is history).

When looking at thestamper's FAQ I was doing some more digging and found the mother lode:

Boring Portfolio
1996 Archives

This also has links to the years 1997,1998,1999,and 2000.

With that I think we should be able to redo or revise or remake the Boring FAQ

Ok -- other things that I've wanted to do and will be able to do that with this project.

Take some of the concepts of Joel Greenblatt -- pre-magic formula. There is a long/slightly confusing/redundant set of notes that were taking from Mr. Greenblatt's securities course. I believe these will be very helpful in our educational travels.

A fellow TMFer here has posted them. I think its a great reference and would urge anyone interested in analysis to have a look. [One of my goals will be to re-write the notes in a more concise manner.]

Interesting the blend between Greenblatt's later "magic formula" versus his more concentrated portfolio -- which was the basis for "You Can Be a Stock Market Genius". I believe we can use it as a source for finding ideas.

I also think the numbers and concepts will help better solidify the process of valuation/quality that was missing from the original Bore Portfolio strategy and more in line with Dale and Alex's redo of the port in 1998.

So another reference that was popular several years back but we should have a link to is the EVA framework, which is something that ties in to both Greenblatt as well as Wettlaufer.

Again from a fellow TMFer:
