Number-Oriented Guru Robert Olstein's Top Holdings
Robert Olstein is the chairman and chief investment officer of the Olstein Financial Fund. Olstein selects stocks by looking behind the numbers. He emphasizes a detailed look behind the numbers of a company's financial statement to assess the company's financial strength and assess potential downside risk. To be considered for his selection, a company must generate more cash flow than necessary to sustain the business, avoid aggressive accounting practices, demonstrate balance sheet fundamentals that are consistent with his defense first approach and be selling at a discount to the private market value.
