Taking Stock - September 2020
Equity markets have been led back to record highs by an increasingly narrow and richly-valued cohort of stocks. It’s not the first time such a scenario has occurred, and it seems an appropriate time to dust off the history books to see how past experiences have played out.
The factors driving market performance and how a “moat” gives companies an edge.
We have a clearly defined interpretation of value that underpins all aspects of our investment approach.
We look for disconnects between the market rating of capital and the productivity of that capital.
We believe that there is no correlation between price paid and investment outcome over short periods. Value requires time, patience and resolve.
Low multiples do not always correspond to good value. In-depth analysis is required.
To allocate capital globally on the basis of discount to intrinsic value, valuations must be comparable.
We focus on our best ideas, not risk versus a benchmark. All of our strategies have high active share.
We insist on a discount to intrinsic value. That is our “margin of safety.”
