Investing Philosophy

Arnold applies value investment strategies as his investment philosophy. His investment research seeks to determine the appraised value of a company, often referred to as intrinsic value. Investments are then made at a significant discount, normally 40% to 65% below the company's current intrinsic value. This is his margin of safety. Arnold usually holds 35-40 companies when fully invested, and invests primarily in U.S. headquartered companies.

Arnold Van Den Berg's Century Management Market Update Managers discuss energy and tech stocks Arnold Van Den Berg - Arnold Van Den Berg's Century Management Market Update
While our average investment portfolio has seen a decline in market value over the past several months, we continue to believe that the equities we own across our various investment strategies hold good values in an overall market environment that we do not see as cheap. Our research indicates that the energy sector and related securities are the most undervalued sector and sub-industries, not only in absolute terms, but also relative to other sectors. It is for this reason that we maintain our over-weight position in energy. More...
