Avenir’s core value investment strategy is implemented through a security selection process that starts with a bottom-up analysis of each investment opportunity. The goal of this strategy is to manage a relatively concentrated portfolio of investments in superior businesses with excellent managements that are purchased at a significant discount to the firm's appraisal of intrinsic value. Investment decisions are based on a thorough analysis of a target company’s business, financial condition and the quality of its management. The firm focuses on long-term value opportunities and security selection is not limited by market capitalization weightings, industry sectors, or other classifications. Although Avenir’s investment strategy is focused primarily on equities, the firm will consider investments in any security that can generate equity-like returns while also providing a margin of safety, including convertible securities and distressed debt.

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.

The companies they look for possess these three main characteristics: strong engaged management; sound balance sheets; and sustainable cash flows.

New menu items and new beers have been added through the years as the BJ’s brand has expanded across the U.S. Our passionate desire to provide extraordinary value for our guests in a high-energy, fun, child-friendly environment, along with a sincere commitment to support the communities in which we do business, goes to the heart of what differentiates BJ’s from other restaurants.
