Don Yacktman Sits Down with Steve Forbes for a Lengthy Interview

April 11, 2013 | About:

According to Yacktman he has three goals as a money manager:

Goal number 1 - Protect the capital of his investors from permanent loses

Goal number 2 - Try to earn double-digit returns over the long term

Goal number 3 - Beat the S&P 500 from market peak to market peak

Yacktman isn't looking for opportunities with the highest potential rate of return; he is looking for the highest rate of return on a risk-adjusted basis.

We can see that in his portfolio that is loaded with high-quality, cash-generating companies.

A very enjoyable interview with a steady value investor:
