Third Quarter 2015 Letter

Our third quarter letter reviews our process and its increasing ability to predict future returns. Every time our portfolio’s risk-adjusted return has hit high levels, subsequent performance has been strong. It remains above 20x, and above the previous record-high from earlier this year, after which our portfolio returned 14%. Of course, past performance is no guarantee of future performance.

Our letter also covers:

  • The exceptional opportunity Ferrari has as it modestly increases the supply of vehicles to its customer base, which has enthusiastically stretched waiting lists to as long as two years
  • The irrational sell-off in shares of Piaggio just as demand from consumers is starting to show the first signs of life in the last fifteen years
  • The solid performance of Finmeccanica, which has already blown past its 2016 targets, 5 quarters ahead of guidance
  • Upcoming catalysts in Mast Therapeutics, MEI Pharma and Fiat-Chrysler
