What is your own investment philosophy?
I would categorize my investments into two main buckets: 1) Cheap Assets – businesses with below-average economics, approaching catalysts (hidden asset, misunderstood business etc.) and a starting valuation that provides a significant margin of safety, and 2) Great Businesses – companies that earn above average economic returns on capital due to their durable competitive advantage combined with a long growth runway to reinvest their profits at above-average returns. I tend to favour bucket two as far more money is made over time buying businesses with sustainable advantages at reasonable valuations, than is made buying mediocre companies at cheap valuations (the power of compounding).
