Feature interview

Value Detective is an analyst who focuses on special situations, distressed and event-driven opportunities. We emailed with Value Detective about using a SOTP analysis, how to evaluate SPACs and why it pays to actually read the prospectus.

Seeking Alpha: How do you find special situations and event-driven opportunities?

Value Detective: There are a couple of screens for corporate actions and merger arb opportunities on Bloomberg which I find to be pretty useful as well as news and RSS feeds. There is often 6-8 months lead time to look at a spin-off or a pre-event situation which is more than enough time to form a view and do detailed work on a name. Seeking Alpha Pro is a great source of underfollowed small cap and special situation opportunities and the community has definitely been valuable to discuss and debate ideas.

WeChat, which just topped 1 billion MAUs, is believed to have accounted for a healthy portion of the $36.4 billion in revenue Tencent produced last year. Line, which had 168 million MAUs at the end of last year, had 2017 revenue of 167 billion yen ($1.56 billion).
