Re What Stocks Would Phil Fisher Buy Today

February 21, 2012

interesting article, I'm a little surprised you didn't mention Graco (GGG) as a potential Fisher stock, you talked about it before and it seems to fit the bill. I think the managers at Mairs & Power are pretty Fisher influenced, they own a lot of mid cap industrials that they bought at rich valuations that just get richer as the years and earnings mount up.

Betting on long term growth stocks takes a different type of intelligence than value investing. You have to get comfortable with abstracts like future demand (the pie getting bigger, not just getting a bigger slice of the pie). Old school value can be easier in some ways. Are you good at math? Do you have the patience to stick to your process? Since investing requires homework, ones approach tends to reinforce ones personal interests.So whatever you enjoy thinking about/researching will eventually reflect itself in your portfolio
