Investing Philosophy

Snow looks for companies that are financially strong, but with stock prices that have been depressed due to temporary or intermediate term difficulties. Snow relies on extensive research to determine the probability of a solution, gain confidence in the company’s ability to survive the difficulty, and estimate the value of the stock once the difficulty has passed. Snow believes that, when using this strategy, the downside is protected because the stock price is already depressed making it a reasonably safe strategy, yet one capable of achieving significant returns.

What’s Richard Snow Up To? Recent Purchases: RHB, CHK, BXS, IP
Not much has been written about Richard Snow. He’s had a rough five years and his All Cap Value Fund is highlighted here on GuruFocus.

While 2008 was bad, it’s a good bet that Snow’s investment approach and discipline will continue to beat the market over the long term, despite the most recent five year blip. Read more...

Top Richard Snow Holdings: JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America Corp., Community Health Systems, The Gap Inc., Health Net Inc., General Electric Company Top Richard Snow Holdings: JPM, BAC, CYH, GPS, HNT, GE
According to the firm’s “Fully Compliant GIPS Presentation”, Investment Guru Richard Snow manages a total of $2.9 billion as of December 31, 2009 in two separately managed account strategies and a mutual fund. As of December 31, 2009, the firm’s website http://www.snowcm.com lists three investment vehicles/strategy: All Cap Value Separately Managed Accounts ($356 million), Large Cap Value Separately Managed Accounts ($234 million); and as of February 28, 2010, mutual fund (called “Snow Capital Opportunity Fund”) ($219 million), according to the fund’s annual report. If you add the three numbers, you don’t quite get $2.9 billion, so there are must be portfolio that is not open to the public. But what he is not showing in his firm’s website he had to file with SEC, and GuruFocus actually shows he had $2.67 billion in equity portfolio under his watch. More...
