Guy Spier on New Strategies for Value Investors

January 29, 2013 | About:

Buffett devotee and value investor Guy Spier walks us through his investing style. Some of his key points:

- He avoids shorting.

- Uses concentration with about 20 positions.

- Back prior to the financial crisis he kept 70% of the portfolio in just five positions but now feels that was too concentrated.

- He thinks value investing has gotten much more difficult because of the amount of competition amongst investors and the fact that data is easily available now.
