Harris uses a value investment philosophy in selecting equity and equity-like securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers. The firm's investment philosophy spans across large, mid and small cap companies. In addition, Harris may hedge a client's exposure to direct or indirect foreign currencies. In constructing portfolios for their clients, the firm seeks out companies that they believe are trading in the market at significant discounts to their underlying value. Harris believes purchasing businesses at a discount to intrinsic value minimizes risk while providing substantial profit potential. The firm uses a bottom-up approach focused on individual companies, rather than focusing on specific economic factors or industries. Harris generates their research ideas from a variety of internal and external sources. The firm's research process seeks to identify companies selling at a discount to its estimate of intrinsic value.

FPR Partners focuses on investments in companies that offer an opportunity for an attractive return with low risk of loss of invested capital. The firm seeks both to enhance returns and minimize risk primarily by investing in a concentrated portfolio of high-quality public companies that are priced below their intrinsic value. FPR then constructively engages the management teams of such companies to assist them in identifying and increasing shareholder value. While the funds' focus primarily on long-term investment in publicly traded securities, they may also seek to increase overall returns by opportunistically investing in various types of securities, including, but not limited to, options, short sales, debt and special situation investments. FPR's investment horizon is typically 3 to 5 years.

In 1955, Raul Cortez founded KCOR-TV (channel 41, now KWEX-DT) in San Antonio, Texas; the station's call letters were later changed to KUAL-TV. The station was not profitable, and in 1961, Cortez sold it to a group headed by his son-in-law Emilio Nicolas, Sr. and Mexican entertainment mogul Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta. Nicolas had helped produce channel 41's variety programs, while Azcárraga was the owner of Telesistema Mexicano, forerunner of Televisa. The new owners turned the station around, and in 1962, signed on KMEX-TV (channel 34) in Los Angeles; this was followed in 1968 by the sign-on of New York City area station WXTV (channel 41) in Paterson, New Jersey. These stations formed the nucleus of the Spanish International Network, the first television network in the United States to broadcast in a language other than English.
