Our Story

StockDeepDive was created in 2021 in part due to our frustration with the lack of tools available for our particular investment styles. There were either tools that were over-simplified, such as a DCF calculator that simply applies your growth rate to the current EPS (which is useless for the record!), or spreadsheets that were comprehensive but a huge pain to use, having to go to many different places to find the data needed.

For that reason, we put our programming and data science experience to work and created this website. In that process, I learned I loved to write about investing as well, which is where the blog came in. Now, you can find blog posts about individual companies, reviews of different books/platforms, and various other investment information.

I was spending too much time doing the calculations to find intrinsic value, going to multiple websites and using multiple spreadsheets. I knew that in order to be a successful investor, I needed to spend more time on the qualitative side of the businesses, trying to find out what the future looked like for that company, rather than doing calculations. It was for that reason I originally created the discounted cash flow calculator.

I founded StockDeepDive in 2021 with a clear vision to streamline my own investment research/calculations, as well as use it as a way to hold myself accountable with investment decisions through blog posts. It didn't take long to realize the tools could help others in the investing community.

I first became interested in investing at about the age of 15, when my parents bought me the book The Wealthy Barber by David Chilton. From there the passion grew, which eventually led me to Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, and the idea of value investing. I've since read every report possible for Berkshire Hathway, as well as watched every interview available with Warren and Charlie (which I highly recommend!).

I've continued to expand my investment knowledge through various books and courses, including 'The Dean Of Valuation' Aswath Damodaran's Value Investing courses. Aswath Damodaran taught the importantance of creating a story for a company, which then allows you to forecast out cashflows, and discount them back to present day to come up with an intrinsic value. Narrative and Numbers: The Value of Stories in Business is a great book by Aswath Damodaran that goes into more detail on valuing companies. Although constantly continuing to learn and improve my investment theory, I am quite happy with where my current investment style is. It can be summed up by 'buying great companies at good prices'. I prefer to buy good companies that can continue to compound invested capital at a high rate, and hold them for a long time.
