Cardinal Capital Management engages in a buy and hold investment strategy that focuses on investments in domestic micro-cap, small-cap and SMID-cap value equities. The firm buys securities and holds them for a relatively long period of time, regardless of short-term factors such as fluctuations in the market or volatility of the stock price. From time to time, however, Cardinal may hold securities for significantly shorter periods of time. The firm searches for investment opportunities within inefficient market niches with emphasis on companies emerging from bankruptcy or corporate restructurings such as spin-offs. They seek to identify companies that are not yet well known or are underfollowed, and to develop opinions on out-of-favor companies businesses. Cardinal also investigates corporate events that often signal undervaluation by tracking large share repurchase activity, significant insider buying and announcements that companies are pursuing strategic alternatives. ^
