We think the best way to learn about our SMID Cap Portfolio is by reading our quarterly letters (to the right). The letters discuss our investment philosophy, portfolio management, and some of our positions.
In summary, Saga Partners takes a long-term approach to investing in public equities by finding undiscovered “compounder” companies that are stable, profitable, and defensible businesses with rapid earnings growth potential from reinvestment opportunities. We expect to provide net returns materially above the general market by taking concentrated positions for longer holding periods and having intimate knowledge of portfolio companies and their management teams. Our research process begins with deep qualitative analysis including the company’s competitive position, ability to earn sustained economic profits, and general industry conditions. If a company meets our qualitative requirements, we estimate its intrinsic value and only purchase an investment if current market prices will provide our estimated required rates of return with an adequate margin of safety.
