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 Comments on Mastercard Guru stock highlight
Both transaction numbers and gross dollar volume were up for Mastercard (NYSE:MA), with net revenue rising 27% this past quarter to $3.6 billion. They have exemplified a strong push for growth in emerging markets with the recent acquisition of Oltio, which resides in South Africa. Acquiring Oltio enables Mastercard to introduce digital payments to even the smallest of local businesses to accelerate growth. In addition, their VocaLink subsidiary continues to drive their “Other Revenues” category, which was up 33% via its real time payments. As cash still makes up 80% of world’s total transactions, many believe Mastercard has plenty of room to grow even as an established company. More...

On March 8, 2018, Cigna (NYSE:CI) entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Express Scripts Holding Company for $67B, or $92 per share.

Combining the companies’ strengths will allow them to use a patient’s medical history to improve treatments and lower costs while simplifying the healthcare supply chain. The merger consideration will consist of $48.75 in cash and 0.2434 shares of stock of the combined company per ESRX share.

On January 29, 2018, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and Keurig Green Mountain Inc. entered into a definitive merger agreement to create Keurig Dr. Pepper (KDP) for $123 a share. The Fund’s cost is $15.23. We bought Dr. Pepper shortly after it was spun out of Cadbury Schweppes for less than ten times earnings. We discovered a highly focused and competent management team. The two companies will bring iconic brands such as 7 Up, A&W, Mott’s and Sunkist together with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Keurig’s single serve coffee system, and more than 75 owned, licensed, and partner brands. Dr. Pepper Snapple shareholders will receive $103.75 per share, or $18.7B, in a special cash dividend and retain 13% of the combined company. KDP is targeting $600M in synergies on an annualized basis by 2021 and a dividend of $0.60 per share at the close of the transition. Total net debt is expected to be approximately $16.6B with a target net debt/EBIDTA ratio below 3.0x within two to three years after closing.
