Investing Philosophy

Like Warren Buffett, Lampert targets mature and easily understandable businesses that have strong cash flows. He focuses on a company's ability to generate large amounts of cash over the long haul. Unlike Buffett, Lampert is less focused on the management team of potential because of his willingness to implement changes in the companies in which he has invested. Lampert has significant experience investing in the retail arena.

Eddie Lampert Comments on Amazon Guru stock highlight
Companies like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) were able to grow rapidly without having to collect sales tax, while traditional retail companies had the dual disadvantages of having to report profits and to collect sales tax from their customers. While it is true that Amazon’s customers, by law, were required to calculate and pay sales tax in states that required it, many commentators conveniently ignored these laws in their coverage of Amazon and the state and local authorities did little to enforce the existing laws. The consequence? We are now seeing more and more retail stores shut down and the tax base of many municipalities eroding due to the hollowing out of the sales tax base as the Wall Street Journal recently reported. Even the largest and most successful retailers, like Walmart Read more...
