Aaron Edelheit of Mindset Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on La Française des Jeux (France: FDJ) at Best Ideas 2021.
La Française des Jeux (FDJ): How would you like to invest in an actual monopoly? Not a business you think is a monopoly, but a real life, actual government-supported monopoly. What if this monopoly is an asset light business that is growing nicely with virtually no debt? And what if when the economy shut down during the early stages of the COVID pandemic, this business broke even and when things partially re-opened one month later business was back to normal? What if you could buy it at a 5% free cash flow yield and growing? And further, what if comps trade at much, much higher valuations such as 40 times 2024 EBITDA? Sacré bleu, can this even be a real investment opportunity?
