Please click here to read our short quarterly letter reviewing our year, and how we’re thinking about the beginning of 2016 – which has of course been full of fireworks!
Summary: Prior to the year, we already trimmed or eliminated some illiquid and cyclical positions. Yet because of the incredible rush to judgement of many investors that have lost their composure in January, some industrial and cyclical businesses are now pricing in a depression. On the other hand, many other tech and “new age,” companies are pricing in uninterrupted prosperity. Naturally, we find a margin of safety in securities that price-in the worst case scenario. We doubt 2016 will bring the Great Depression, and if we’re right, we’ll do quite well.
Thanks to you all for your trust, and for allowing us to put our money where our mouth is, through your continued conviction. We were honored this month to be mentioned by Five Star Professional to be in the top 99.8% percentile of New York-based investment management firms with exceptional customer satisfaction.
It’s truly an honor, and we go confidently into the year with an outstanding opportunity set in front of us.
