According to the brochure submitted to IAPD, Bauposts investment strategy is as follows:
Baupost is an opportunistic, value-oriented, open mandate investment organization whose goal is to invest capital in such a manner as to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns over an extended period of time. To achieve this objective, the Baupost Partnerships seek to invest in assets that Baupost considers to be undervalued relative to their market price. The Baupost Partnerships seek to invest, either directly or indirectly, in securities and other assets that Baupost believes to have some or all of the following characteristics: they are currently out of favor, but have good prospects; they sell at a significant discount to underlying economic value; they have catalysts in place for the realization of underlying value; they are highly complex; they are somewhat or highly illiquid and they sell at prices below what would reasonably be expected due to market imperfections and inefficiencies, including but not limited to temporary supply/demand imbalances, information gaps, and selling pressures.
Methods of Analysis
In addition, Bauposts methods of analysis include:
Baupost selects investments according to many criteria, which may include book value, estimated underlying economic value, current and projected future earnings, cash flow, yield, skills of management, future prospects of the business and current market price of the investment. Baupost utilizes several analytical techniques, which may include fundamental analysis, analysis of historical relationships, economic analysis, business cycle analysis, interest rate analysis and industry analysis to make its investment decisions.
