John Linehan is the head of U.S. equities for T. Rowe Price. He consider himself a "bottoms up" investor who seeks to beat the market by knowing the companies he owns better than everyone else.

Linehan thinks that knowing the people running the companies is extremely important. While looking at balance sheets and valuations is obviously key, quality of management is integral as well.
