A look at the billionaire's involvement with the business

About Baupost

Around 30% of Baupost's assets under management are invested in stocks and shares. The remainder is spread between cash, credit investments and some real estate, although these are only rough figures. The general public does not have a complete picture of where the assets are invested.

Growth prospects are improving, but the valuation is still cheap

When it comes to international investing, U.S. investors primarily think about emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil. There is nothing wrong with investing in equity securities of companies domiciled in these nations considering the stellar economic growth seen in all these countries. This, however, should not cloud the judgment of investors to an extent where they would be missing lucrative opportunities available in other foreign markets. From a contrarian perspective, U.K. stocks look primed for a strong comeback as many of the dark clouds that hovered around the market performance finally seem to have disappeared for good.

The lack of catalysts is negatively influencing market sentiment and producing a big holding discount

Liberty Global PLC (LBTYA) is a holding communication company which owns several subsidiaries (mostly cable networks) in Europe.

Departure from the EU may lead to currency and other tailwinds (or headwinds) for some of Britain's most globally recognized businesses

The media has closely followed Britain’s tumultuous journey to leave the European Union ever since the country made the decision in a June 2016 referendum. On Jan. 31, 2019, Brexit became official, and Britain is legally no longer part of the EU.

The full effects of this change on British companies is still unknown. For example, one of the biggest reasons cited for wanting to leave the EU was to escape its many regulations. In order to trade with EU countries, the British government may end up conforming to many of those regulations anyway, but the final decision on each

The purchase of Red Hat was part of strategic initiative to branch out into the lucrative and burgeoning cloud computing services sector

During the latter part of last year, International Business Machines Corp.’s (IBM) shares were beaten down over 26% as the company missed sales estimates for two consecutive quarters and faced skepticism concerning its plans to diversify into other business lines to help rekindle its lackluster growth. Although the company’s revenue increased last year, most of that growth was attributable to the introduction of a new mainframe system. That business dropped 41% in the fourth quarter.

An examination of the chart below highlights how revenue for the company crash-dived during 2018, after cresting at a peak in 2017.
