It includes his popular investment viewpoint: ‘buy what you know.’ Buy on Amazon below.

Eric Schoenstein: We look for development of revenue, revenue, free cashflow per share, market opportunity, etc. The mix we look for will be different for every ongoing company and industry. In this current slow-growth environment we are paying close attention to organic income growth particularly. John Rotonti: Do you rather choose company that is reinvesting 100% of earnings into growth (or at least almost all of its earnings) or one that can both grow and return cash to shareholders through dividends and buybacks? Eric Schoenstein: It depends upon where the company is within its growth routine.

Some more youthful businesses have the chance to reinvest all cash return into development at high rate of results. But understand that we need a decade of high comes back before we can make investments. A lot of the companies that we spend money on have such high free cash flows they can maintain a solid balance sheet, spend money on growth, and pay a dividend and/or buy back stock.

So our investments have the ability to take action all and it’s managements job to balance and prioritize between them. We like dividends because there are intervals when the market doesn’t cooperate, but the dividend allows us to generate some come back on our investment while we wait. We also like dividends since it is a dedication. We all know the way the market responds to a dividend cut or suspension.

Dividends are different from buybacks in this regard. John Rotonti: How do you produce an estimation of intrinsic value? Eric Schoenstein: We look at valuation from different perspectives, but our principal valuation tool is discounted cash flow analysis, and we discount those cash moves using two different special discounts.

In the first case, we use the same discount rate across our whole universe, which in effect is similar to an internal rate of come back. One element of this is the risk-free rate. We don’t normally use the 10-calendar year or 30-12 months U.S. Instead we use an interpolated 20-year rate and the 2-year moving average of the 20-year rate, which changes for the current environment and dampens some of the volatility. In a second scenario, we use data from Duff & Phelps to calculate a unique discount rate for every ongoing company in our universe. We have higher conviction when the share price looks undervalued using both approaches compared only one or the other.

We then check our thinking using valuation multiples, as well as other metrics. Considering that we concentrate on free cash flow more than reported income, we have a tendency to favor cash-flow oriented multiples. John Rotonti: What common characteristics or patterns do you acknowledge in your winners? Eric Schoenstein: The product quality characteristics that I mentioned at the start all show up in our winners, but the single most significant thing is the consistent historical performance. Our research and stock portfolio returns show that consistency in the past leads to a higher odds of persistency in the future. This leads us to be very patient, long-term holders.
