Reports contain analysis of the main technologies, market trends, key players, competitive positions. Every report contains a forecast of technological development direction, market development and winning players.

Investment research

Investment research reports about leading software companies for professional stock market investors. Our method of investment analysis is based upon that of Warren Buffett. While Warren Buffett is known not to invest in technology stocks, we apply his ideas to software companies of choice.  That is how you get the best of both worlds: Buffetts investment techniques, and our software industry expertise! Much like Warren, we do not focus on recent events: we take a long term view of the stock. Tip: if you are not sure which software company to invest in, ask us to send our best pick!
