Immersion Investment Partners made the following comment about Red Violet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDVT) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:
"The beauty of what we do revolves around finding companies that have structural changes happening within them that are being overlooked by the market. Often the market ignores a company that is performing extraordinarily well because it is not showing up in a metric that can be easily discerned using screens or traditional financial ratios and metrics. The efficient market hypothesis would have you believe that all information is priced into a stock. We are here to tell you this is not the case but to find those outliers takes a lot of work. Most investment firms consider 3% a large position so a generous reading would be that analysts ignore our sandbox because it is extremely time-consuming and cost inefficient for what they are trying to accomplish; however, we would not rule out that they are lazy. It takes energy and time to find companies that offer well above average returns, and is a deeply involved process, rather than a simple screening of hundreds of stocks at a time. It is easy to overlook a company that is showing signs of future success. We applaud them for their laziness…errr, tools for efficiency…because it lays before us a terrific opportunity set. Where we become annoyed is when our companies do prove that they are doing well and the market still does not react, or it reacts positively for a short period of time instead of giving the names the credit they deserve. We have also resigned ourselves to the fact that Red Violet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDVT) is just going to stay flat forever, regardless of the 20-30-40% earnings growth it will likely deliver over the next five years."
