The irony is that most investors put more due diligence into a car purchase then where they are putting their life savings. So many investors, even professional investors, only conduct surface due diligence on companies. Surface due diligence is information that is readily available like SEC Filings, financial statements, and press releases. Yes, surface due diligence is very important and necessary but this is only where due diligence starts. Analyzing a company and management team without meeting management or visiting their facility is like buying a car without test-driving it. At the very least you should talk to management, and this is a must with microcap investing.
The Sleuth Investor is the best book I’ve read on conducting due diligence beyond the norm. Sleuth is another word for being a detective and this book highlights sleuthing tactics to get little known facts about a company that can give you an edge in investing. Mandelman goes into detail about his three physical elements of sleuthing: People (management, customers, suppliers), Product (analyzing products), and Plant & Periphery (touring factories, offices etc). I felt some of the approaches he used were a bit extreme, and even Mandelman notes to check with an attorney before conducting certain types of due diligence. Overall though I felt the book was a great read and provided thorough insight into how sleuthing is done as it relates to investing. You will enjoy The Sleuth Investor.
