“Altimetry” is the study of height or measuring altitude. Said differently, the study of things that go up. And in the investment world, who doesn’t like things that go up?
Altimetry is a boutique financial research and publishing firm providing individual investors with unique, unbiased investment recommendations and analytics.
Primarily, we are guided by the knowledge that U.S. accounting guidelines – which American public companies are forced to follow – obscure the true results of a company’s profitability, misleading investors. And we’re not alone with these concerns…
Warren Buffett: “The net earnings figure… is not representative of the business at all.”
Forbes: “Why GAAP Accounting Rules May Be Damaging to Investors.”
Billionaire hedge-fund manager Seth Klarman: “Analysis of reported earnings can mislead investors as to the real profitability of a business.”
Instead of using traditional Wall Street analyses, we deconstruct them and reassemble them using our own Uniform Adjusted Financial Reporting Standards (UAFRS) – or Uniform Accounting, for short. This process shows us the true picture of a company’s potential.
Then we combine Uniform Accounting with additional, deep forensic analysis to consistently find mispriced companies poised for massive growth, which we detail for our subscribers.
