The legendary Peter Lynch once said that he got his best stock ideas from the most mundane and the most unlikely of places. In fact, he used to get ideas from shopping malls, attic sale, social gatherings etc. The standard refrain from a lot of investors is that they do not understand equity research as it is a fairly esoteric subject. Yes, if you purely look at research from the point of view of tomes, models, cash flow projections, market algorithms and charts it does sound quite complex. But the real stories in the market are normally the obvious ones. You do not have to be an expert in valuation models to research companies. You just need to have a curious mind and have the ability to keep your eyes and ears open…
