Spadework and psychology

Thanks for visiting invest-o-matic.

I’m Richard Beddard. I read annual reports, correspond with companies and investors, attend annual general meetings, and crunch numbers to find out how businesses make money, why they should succeed, and what could stop them.

Perhaps my best known project is Share Sleuth, a model portfolio that invests in strong businesses for the long-term.

I write for two magazines: Money Observer and MoneyWeek, and online for Interactive Investor.

By being a critical friend of businesses that should prosper for decades, I hope to play a small part in the prosperity of everyone they touch.
