Marty Whitman's 'Safe and Cheap' Approach

January 30, 2006 | About:

One of our favorite value investors is Marty Whitman, manager of the Third Avenue Value Fund TAVFX . The fund has racked up a heady 16.8% annualized average return since its 1990 inception by adhering to Whitman's self-described "safe and cheap" approach, leaving efficient market aficionados scratching their heads.

Whitman has also been deemed "one of the keener minds in the investment world" by Morningstar fund analyst Kerry O'Boyle, so when Whitman speaks, we listen. Whitman has authored The Aggressive Conservative Investor and Value Investing: A Balanced Approach. Both of these books shed light on his approach. Additionally, Whitman publishes thoughtful quarterly letters that outline recent transactions and provide commentary on timely topics.
