Ruane Cunniff Investing Philosophy

Ruane Cunniff are value investors focused on the intrinsic value of business. They are long-term investors, and will buy a stock and hold it for a long time, even if sometimes the stocks seem to be overvalued. They look at common stocks as units of ownership in a business, and purchase them when the price appears low in relation to the value of the total enterprise. The Firm shuns technical stock market studies, and looks at the balance sheet, earnings history, and prospects of each investment when determining its value.
