Asked on 03 Apr 2019
I would usually have a really long answer but have a train to catch soon.
My abridged personal view on investing in a company:
Investing in the founder and his abilities, one of which is to attract great talents;
Being thesis-driven, in the sense that, believing that certain things will never change while other things would;
The first two points will take years to build in terms of investment acumen, start early.
Hope it helps
I believe more than profits it is the established market in the industry which definitely won't give up on things and continue growing in every possible way. I think this might be a grabbing thing for the investors to expect the profit at one point.
