FPA Capital Fund Investing Philosophy
FPA Capital Fund primarily invests in the stocks of smaller companies. It selects stocks based on specific fundamental criteria: strong balance sheets, free cash flow, an understandable and successful business strategy under capable management, and unique business characteristics. The fund's purchases are concentrated in companies with relatively low Price/Normalized Earnings, low Price/Pretax Cash flow, low Price/Book Value, low Price/Replacement Value and low Market Cap/Total Revenues. The fund looks for companies with a track record of high returns on equity, and a long history. It sells stocks when the basis for investment has been revised, the stock is selling at a significant premium P/E to the market, profitability recovery has been attained, a management disappointment without expectation of recovery has occurred, or a superior alternative value has presented itself. The fund's portfolio generally holds 25-45 equities and its investment outlook is typically 3-5 years.
