Importance of ROIC: 'Reinvestment' vs 'Legacy' Moats Certain businesses have the advantages of a Legacy Moat but also opportunities to deploy incremental capital at high rates
I’ve talked a lot about the importance of the concept of return on invested capital (ROIC), and how it is a key driver of value in a business. Feel free to go back and read some of those posts here. In this particular post, the discussion is continued. This post is something new for BHI: it’s a guest post written by my good friend Connor Leonard (see his brief bio at the end of the post).

John Rogers' Ariel Global Fund 2nd Quarter Commentary Discussion of economy and holdings John Rogers - John Rogers' Ariel Global Fund 2nd Quarter Commentary
For the second quarter in a row, investors will likely remember the harrowing ride better than the end result. That is, domestic stocks posted solid gains and foreign shares had relatively mild losses. In the meantime, however, there was Brexit. On June 23, 2016 the British people shocked the world by voting for the United Kingdom to exit the European Union—an enormously complex and economically risky decision. As you know, the market hates uncertainty. And so in response, foreign stocks plummeted - 10%, small caps dove -7%, and large caps sank -5%. But once investors fully digested the news, stocks jumped back up—nearly erasing their losses in the U.S. Overseas the short-term damage from Brexit still showed; the financial-heavy value indexes significantly lagged the core and growth indexes. In the end, U.S. value fare outpaced growth stocks for the second quarter in a row—definitively ending a very long run of outperformance from the growth side. More...

IVA Funds Comments on Emerson Guru stock highlight
Well, Deere (NYSE:DE) is a much finer business. They are world-class. It's much more oligopolistic. The returns of capital over a full cycle dwarf I believe what they are with other fertilizer companies. Yes, the answer is that we've looked at both. There's a clear price at which we would love to own Deere. But, in the fertilizer space, and understand there's a proposed merger going on, we have found it difficult to find one company that truly has much lower costs than the other. In a commodity business, if you can find a company that structurally has much lower cost than another, it helps assure you that they will be a survivor if and when commodity prices are low, and then the company may in fact capitalize during times of low prices to maybe increase its market share position.So, we have not been able to identify, at least yet, a fertilizer company that really stands out in terms of quality and being lower cost than others.

IVA Funds Comments on Emerson Guru stock highlight
Question: You hold Emerson Electric. It's always acquired a lot of companies over the years. Do you think it could be anything like a Valeant, who acquired a lot of companies over the years, or have some characteristics like that?Chuck de Lardemelle: No, not at all. Emerson (NYSE:EMR) has a very strong track record of making smart acquisitions, spending some Research and Development. Now, over the last few years, they've diversified into a business that they are now trying to spin off and making a number of acquisitions in uninterruptible power supplies/electronics. That vertical, if you will, has not worked out at all for Emerson, and they are going back to basics and spinning off or selling that division. The balance sheet is extremely strong, which is absolutely not the case of a Valeant.Emerson is in no position to hike prices and gouge clients. It's a very strong industrial company that is extremely well managed from an operational point of view, that has a More...

IVA Funds Comments on Samsung Electronics Guru stock highlight
Moving on to another large position, Samsung Electronics (XKRX:000830) is up substantially from its lows this year, and therefore not as attractive as it used to be. However, the balance sheet is pristine, the company sells not too far from tangible book value, and we believe the semiconductor franchise is highly profitable and solid. As for the telecom handset franchise, well, I'm sure you'll remember Motorola, Nokia, Siemens, SAGEM, or Sony Ericsson handset businesses? Yes, they all went out of business.So, what do we see there? Why should it be different for Samsung Electronics? Well, SmartPhones today are computers; capital employed in the business is very low. Basically, Samsung simply assembles the mini-computers. It's a business model akin to the Dell business model, not to a Nokia. The industry has consolidated; through its scale, Samsung is able to achieve buying power and a low-cost position; and through the advanced manufacturing of display components and semiconductors, Samsung has an edge in More...

IVA Funds Comments on Berkshire Hathaway Guru stock highlight
Next, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A)(NYSE:BRK.B) still sells at a discount to our estimate of its intrinsic value. We believe Buffett and his successors are likely to be able to compound at a reasonable pace, particularly due to the ability to buy listed or unlisted companies in their entirety. A few looming technological innovations, though may be tough for some of Berkshire's businesses: driverless cars would negatively impact insurance subsidiary Geico, while driverless trucks would be a large negative for the railroad business, Burlington Northern. If battery technology continues to improve, at some point the storage of electricity will make renewable energy a lot more competitive against traditional utilities, a risk for Berkshire Hathaway Energy.This conglomerate, however, is well equipped to deal with obsolescence: after all, Berkshire is quite unique in its ability to take cash flow from mature or declining business More...
