Thank you for visiting Against the Grain Investments (ATG)! We are a small group of private investors who love the mystery, complexity, and opportunity of equity investing. This is our forum to share and debate our investment ideas, share investment experiences, discuss the market, and have some fun regarding a topic that we are very passionate about. While all of our ideas might not necessarily be text-book contrarian, “against the grain” concepts, our main objective is to avoid group-think or consensus investment opinions and truly express our own original investment thoughts and ideas. It has been well documented that hedge funds and mutual funds have lagged the overall performance of broad indices like the S&P 500 over the past several years. It’s our hope that the combination of being small and non-institutional while trusting our own intuition and research will lead to superior investment results. We truly hope that visitors to this site benefit (and PROFIT) from the ideas, discussions, and lessons we share on this blog.
