Investment Management Philosophy – Part III

3. Value Discipline

  • The purchase of a growing stream of cash flows at a discount to their present value is at the heart of our value approach to capital allocation.
  • With an owner-mindset, we use valuation metrics that focus on operating economics and cash flow. We do not require economics and cash flows be stable or predictable in the short-term, but do expect so in the long-term.
  • We value management teams that are as disciplined as we are in allocating capital intelligently – using excess cash to repurchase shares opportunistically, distributing cash to shareholders through dividends, or reinvesting in the business.
