Investing Philosophy

Try to find compelling, undervalued companies that ideally exhibit the following attributes:

* Strong or improving fundamentals
* Consistency in operating results
* A substantial advantage over competition (strong franchise)
* A demonstrated ability to earn high rates of return on capital
* Understandable products
* Honest, competent shareholder-oriented management
* Intelligent capital allocation policies
* Generates substantial free cash flow with nominal mandatory capital requirements
* A strong balance sheet and financial flexibility

The investment candidates are then screened to determine what price represents good value with acceptable, low risk and the potential for above average returns. One of the chief investment sins is overpayment. We count on exceptional investment selection for our returns, not the market.

Jeff Auxier's Spring 2016 Market Commentary Review of markets and investing principles Jeff Auxier - Jeff Auxier's Spring 2016 Market Commentary
After an 11% decline in the first six weeks of 2016, the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index recovered to gain 1% for the first quarter. Stocks rebounded in the face of a sharp cutback in energy capital spending, slowing world growth and wildly volatile currency swings that weighed on export volumes. These setbacks largely offset the positive material savings from declining prices in natural gas, heating oil, diesel and gasoline. Regions with heavy in-migration like the Pacific Northwest are showing very strong economic growth, while those tied to coal and oil are suffering. Historically, sharp drops in energy inputs have led to strong growth (1986 and 1998) as our economy is 85% service oriented. Indeed, my recent visits with executives in construction trades—both housing and commercial—suggest there are serious ongoing shortages in welding, plumbing, electrical framing—you name it, especially in the West.

Jeff Auxier's Fall 2015 Market Commentary From Auxier Asset Management Jeff Auxier - Jeff Auxier's Fall 2015 Market Commentary
Major stock indices continued their correction through the third quarter of 2015. Corporate revenue gains and product pricing have been weak. Concerns over slowing global growth and currency devaluations, starting with China, have added to uncertainty. Commodity-driven emerging markets have suffered over $1 trillion in outflows, the first net exodus in 27 years. So it shouldn’t be surprising that a long overdue 10% correction took place in a week in August. The price you pay for seeking superior compounded returns is enduring the volatility of free market pricing. The key to compounding is to stick with good companies when it gets ugly and painful.
