First Eagle Investment' s Profile & Performance

Profile

Web Page:http://www.firsteaglefunds.com/

Investing Philosophy

Jean-Marie Eveillard is a value oriented investor. His approach to asset management is defined by the conviction that absolute long-term performance is the best way to preserve capital, rather than attempting to compete against the short-term movements of the major indices, and rigorous application of bottom-up fundamental analysis intended to reduce risk. His strategy incorporates on-site research by actively visiting companies and talking to managers to gain rounded, first-hand knowledge of investment prospects. Eveillard buys securities whose intrinsic value and long-term potential outweighs market risk.

Shares of Axalta (NYSE:AXTA), which makes paints and coatings for vehicles, declined in the third quarter.

First Eagle Fund of America Comments on Eagle Pharmaceuticals Guru stock highlight
Shares of Eagle Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:EGRX) fell after the FDA denied approval for the company’s lead drug, Ryanodex, for a new indication—exertional heat stroke (EHS). The drug is currently marketed for malignant hypothermia, and the company continues to conduct trials for other indications while holding further discussions with the FDA about the drug’s potential for EHS. The market appears to ascribe little value to any future indications, but we see the potential for upside if any are approved. More...

There are plenty of people who are able to live on their income and decide to invest all their savings in gold. I can appreciate the fact they expect the investment to keep up with inflation. As much as I do not agree with this approach, however, I find it preferable to putting 100% of your savings into a bank account with the intention of keeping it there for the long term. More...
