Leucadia National Investing Philosophy
Using value investing approach, Leucadia buys distressed companies at discount prices, revives them and sells them for profits. They buy assets that are out of favor, and therefore cheap or disheveled. They then improve their performance until they are the most efficient and productive in their market segment. Leucadia's investing maxims guide its investment decisions. The Leucadia strategy says, don't overpay, buy companies that make products or provide services that people need or want, sheltered earnings are more valuable than taxed earnings, and once again, don't overpay.
