About

Altimetry is a boutique financial research and publishing firm providing individual investors with unique, unbiased investment recommendations and analytics.

Altimetry is the study of height or measuring altitude. Said differently, the study of things that go up. In the investment world, who doesn’t like things that go up?

As the consumer arm of Valens Research, we leverage the same underlying datasets, investment philosophy, and strategies.

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.

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.
