John Rogers Investing Philosophy

Rogers has concentrated his investment selection on small and medium-sized companies whose share prices are undervalued. He believes that patience, independent thinking and a long-term outlook are essential to achieving good returns.
His fund seeks to purchase companies whose characteristics include high barriers to entry, sustainable competitive advantages and predictable fundamentals that allow for double digit cash earnings growth. Rogers purchases companies when they are trading at a low valuation relative to potential earnings (p/e less than 13x forward cash earnings) and/or a low valuation relative to intrinsic worth (40% discount to private market value).
