The Event-Driven Edge in Investing

Six Special Situation Strategies to Outperform the Market

By Asif Suria

Jacket text

Every investor wants a dependable advantage that enables them to beat the market. Every investor wants an edge.

One such edge, long thought to be accessible only to institutional investors, can be found in event-driven investing strategies. These strategies allow you to recognize and take advantage of the effect of corporate events on the price of stocks—events including mergers and acquisitions, stock buybacks, and spin-offs.

Now, in The Event-Driven Edge in Investing, accomplished multi-strategy investor Asif Suria provides a simple, in-depth introduction to these highly profitable strategies, making them available to all investors.

The Event-Driven Edge in Investing teaches you how to:

-Utilise merger arbitrage as a counter-cyclical investment option that can gain better risk-adjusted returns than bonds.
-Follow what company insiders are doing to generate new investment ideas.
-Track stock buybacks to better understand whether a company’s board of directors and management are aligned about the company’s value.
-Use spin-offs to unlock value in either the spin-off or the newly unburdened parent company.

With Asif’s guidance, you too can identify and profit from the event-driven edge in investing.
