Murray Stahl Investing Philosophy

Horizon Kinetics LLC is a fundamental value, contrarian-oriented (fact-based) investment adviser. Founded on the belief that a short-term investment approach, widely adopted with the modernization of financial markets, ultimately produces sub-optimal returns, the firm feels investors are better served not by taking more risk, but by extending their investment time horizon, which affords far wider ranges of opportunity and valuation than are available to time-constrained investors. While all acknowledge the tremendous power of compounding, practically speaking (and by definition) this benefit simply cannot be harnessed in a short time frame. The firm's investment strategies – supported entirely by its independent, fundamental research – typically reflect contrarian views that seek to take advantage of the short-term focus of the marketplace.
