Steve Romick (FPA Crescent) Semi Annual Letter and Report
Posted by: CanadianValue (IP Logged)

Let’s cut to the chase and look first at his concluding remarks:

As you would suspect given our fears, we remain conservatively postured, with not quite 70% in risk assets, and the balance in cash. If one had a strong view of inflation, he would construct a portfolio quite differently than the person who expects deflation. We have positioned our portfolio to be relatively robust in either scenario.

In a world of deflation, not much besides our cash will do well. In a world of inflation, which is where we believe the Central Bankers and their respective administrations are leading us in the long term, we believe our stocks should at least perform nominally well. We continue to let price be our guide. If a business or asset is good and cheap — absolutely, not relatively — we’ll buy it.

Here is the full report which also recaps his portfolio:
