Booth-Laird Investment Partnership – Jonathan Booth, CEO of Booth-Laird Investment Partnership, will present his best investment idea. Booth-Laird focuses on out-of-favor stocks, which are stocks mispriced due to uncertainty or fear, misunderstanding, or obscurity. Booth-Laird then conducts sufficient due diligence to overcome those hurdles and only invests if the stock is available at a sizable discount to Booth-Laird’s valuation of the company. Booth-Laird Investment Partnership will be heavily invested into the company that Mr. Booth presents.
