No Fiat, Atlantia or Pirelli for the moment



I am not buying any stocks from Italy right now for various different reasons. I didn’t buy Atlantia because the Obermatt ranks couldn't be verified with reuters.com. I decided to file a report with the head of stock analysis at Obermatt to investigate the differences. You can do that too if you find something strange on obermatt.com by sending an email to info@obermatt.com.

I also didn't buy Pirelli because the company is in the process of being taken over by a Chinese conglomerate. Since I am looking for long-term investments, it doesn't make sense to purchase stocks from a company that might soon disappear from the stock markets.

Finally, I didn't buy Fiat because I don't feel comfortable about what I know about the high performance pressure culture that is present at Fiat these days. This is just a personal impression and may be wrong, but it makes sense to use all information that you know when purchasing stocks.

This means that no stocks were purchased this week. That's fine. You don't need to purchase stocks all the time. Purchase a stock when everything you know feels right.
