SAM uses a value-oriented, long-term, bottom-up stock selection process. Their research team appraises businesses by studying financial statements, regulatory information, trade publications, and other industry and corporate data, and by talking with corporate management, competitors, and suppliers. They use two methods for their appraisal: (1) they seek to assess the company’s liquidation value based on the current economic worth of corporate assets and liabilities; and (2) they seek to determine the company’s ongoing value based on its ability to generate free cash flow after required capital expenditures and working capital needs. In selecting investments they look for companies with strong business and good people.
