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.

What to Buy as OPEC Supply Hike Hits Oil Stocks These guru-loved stocks declined
Almost every large-cap energy stock opened lower on Monday as oil prices felt the bite of OPEC’s Friday agreement to increase supply after members overshot their compliance with an earlier decision to tighten output. Read more...
Why Even the Most Successful, Die-Hard Value Investor Should Hold Gold A discussion of the benefits of investing in gold
There are plenty of people who are able to live on their income and decide to invest all their savings in gold. I can appreciate the fact they expect the investment to keep up with inflation. As much as I do not agree with this approach, however, I find it preferable to putting 100% of your savings into a bank account with the intention of keeping it there for the long term. Read more...
First Eagle Comments on Imperial Oil Guru stock highlight
Imperial Oil (IMO), an Exxon subsidiary in Canada, declined in value as spreads widened between Canadian oil prices and such benchmarks as the WTI Index. Over the longer-term, these spreads tend to mean-revert as pipeline capacity is added to deliver Imperial’s output to the US market. Imperial has also reduced its operating costs.

First Eagle Investments Comments on FANUC Guru stock highlight
FANUC (TSE:6954), based in Japan, is a leading global producer of robots and the servo -motors used in robots. Its stock lost ground after it announced conservative earnings guidance. The company has a history of conservative guidance, and we don’t see any struc-tural negatives in its business. We do, however, keep our eye on possible changes in the company’s competitive environment. A Chinese competitor intends to expand robot production, and another competitor may be further ahead in the development of robots that can collaborate with humans. Nonetheless, we still believe FANUC’s market position is very strong.

Cummins: Risk-Reward With a Guru Favorite Down over 20% year to date, the stock looks ripe for more guru buying First Eagle Investment,Jim Simons - Cummins: Risk-Reward With A Guru Favorite
Cummins (NYSE:CMI) turns 100 next year and has built an industrial powerhouse that makes, sells and services engines, power systems and related products with big clients that include Paccar and Daimler as well as a network of more than 7,000 dealers. Operating in more than 190 countries, Cummins has scale like no other in the industry.

First Eagle Investments Comments on Cielo Guru stock highlight
Cielo (BSP:CIEL3) is the leading merchant acquirer for Visa credit cards in Brazil. As the Brazilian economy has weakened, some smaller retailers have gone out of business, which has created a head-wind for the company’s acquisition of business. However, we remain comfortable with this investment. Cielo controls a major share of all transactional volume in Brazil—a market where credit card participation is less than half the level of the United States. More...

First Eagle Investments Comments on Nutrien Guru stock highlight
Outside the energy sector, Nutrien (NYSE:NTR)—a Canadian fertilizer company formed from the merger of Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan and Agrium—was another strong performer. During the quarter, the potash market firmed somewhat, but the strength of the stock also reflected investors’ growing comfort with the prospects of the merged entity. Nutrien has talked about $500 million of synergies from the merger, and it has bought back stock at the bottom of the cycle—a measure we support. The company also received a good price for an affiliate it sold in Chile—a potash company that also controls a lithium mine. More...

First Eagle Global Value Team Annual Letter 2017 Review of holdings and markets First Eagle Investment - First Eagle Global Value Team Annual Letter 2017
In 2017, two seemingly contradictory trends continued and, indeed, acceler-ated: the strong advance of global investment markets and the proliferation of geopolitical risks. For us, it was a challenging period in which pockets of value became harder and harder to find. We were reminded, once again, that patience is a key element in our investment approach. We drew heavily on our store of patience in the year just ended. More...
