Investing Philosophy

Jean-Marie Eveillard is a value oriented investor. His approach to asset management is defined by the conviction that absolute long-term performance is the best way to preserve capital, rather than attempting to compete against the short-term movements of the major indices, and rigorous application of bottom-up fundamental analysis intended to reduce risk. His strategy incorporates on-site research by actively visiting companies and talking to managers to gain rounded, first-hand knowledge of investment prospects. Eveillard buys securities whose intrinsic value and long-term potential outweighs market risk.

Jean-Marie Eveillard: Why You Should Emulate Him
A couple of days ago, I revealed that I had purchased an old investment book some time back entitled "Value Investing with the Masters" by Kirk Kazanjian. I was less than satisfied with the book and had placed it on my bookshelf mostly unread. Recently, I decided to endure what I felt was overall a lackluster performance at interviewing some investing greats and take the time to fully read it. After all, I reasoned, certainly there must be something I can take out of each chapter and apply it to myself or my investing style. Read more...

I advocated investing in ITT before the break-up, and I wanted to review the position and see if it met my expectations. It’s also worthwhile to review this investing style since Tyco (TYC) is also doing a three way break-up by the end of the year. Read more...

Made in Japan: A New Bull Market
Japan has now been through a 20-year bear market. Tokyo’s Nikkei – think of it as Japan’s Dow Jones Industrial Average – put in a new low last year. Even though it’s rallied a bit since then, it’s still down about 75% from its all-time high in 1989. That’s a brutal bear market. Read more...

Smart Money Trickling Into Transocean for Deep Value in Underwater Oil Driller Bruce Berkowitz,Jean-Marie Eveillard,David Dreman, - Smart Money Trickling Into Transocean For Deep Value In Underwater Oil Driller
The outlook on Transocean (RIG) is very grim as oil sells at four-year lows – near $80 a barrel. Transocean’s stock price is off 82% from its 2007 apex above $170 a share. But shares may already reflect the negative prospects for the oil industry. Exceptional value is born from new lows and bleak prospects – not when everyone sees improvements on the horizon. More...
