Category: Management Stewardship, It’s All About Human
Simply, Management Stewardship is answering the question of whether management creating or destroying value for shareholders. Good management is the one who creates value in the long run.
Value has to be at least one of these matrices: Rising dividend, Rising capital gain – and should be maintained in the long term.
Management Stewardship is one of the most overlooked aspects of investing. Most Investors merely focus on the economic moat, financial performances, and business prospects.
To tell the truth – no matter how good economic moat, financial performances, and business prospects – it is useless if the management doesn’t give it back to shareholders. Rather than, they create value for themselves. This unfriendly policy could be delivered through too much Stock-Based Compensation.
Another value destruction policy is the careless expensive acquisition, too much reliance on debt, too much dividend paid, or too much salary for the CEO – or a combination of those. Those circumstances, in turn, could erode the competitive advantages of a company, thus, trim the earning.
