This quote from Richard Beddard caught my eye the other week:
“If something truly special is incubating, we may profit from our investment for decades.”
I am always up for profiting from an investment for decades.
Richard was writing about “pivots” — companies that are adapting to change by “incubating another better business“.
He highlighted four examples and today one of the quartet — Goodwin, a £277 million market-cap engineer — goes under my SharePad microscope.
Richard described these pivots as “decent but humdrum” businesses, but do not let that put you off. Goodwin has 30-bagged during the last 20 years and a heritage of family management could indeed lead to decades of further profit.
