Being opportunistic in the world of finance is generally associated with an aggressive strategy to make money by taking advantage of something that is undervalued, vulnerable or depressed. Property, securities or companies are targeted, bought, held and sold in a short period of time for maximum gains.
For Pender the key point here is “undervalued”. We apply opportunistic to mean identifying potential holdings from the widest possible universe of investments AND being in a position to act quickly to make the investment by being small and nimble.
“You do things when the opportunities come along. I’ve had periods in my life when I’ve had a bundle of ideas come along, and I’ve had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I’ll do something. If not, I won’t do a damn thing.” Warren Buffett
“Good investment opportunities aren’t going to come along too often and won’t last too long. So you’ve got to be ready to act.” Charlie Munger
