The Price-to-Value Podcast with Southeastern Asset Management

Welcome to The Price-to-Value Podcast with Southeastern Asset Management. This podcast series is for people interested in hearing Southeastern’s take on the topics that are top of mind for our clients and how they may impact our portfolios, from our Business, People, Price perspective.

In this episode, we share excerpts from a panel on International Value Investing that Southeastern co-hosted with Evermore Global Advisors in Omaha around the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. Moderated by Greg Dowling from Fund Evaluation Group, Southeastern’s Josh Shores and Evermore’s David Marcus discuss their definition of “value”, the importance of engaging with management and having a local network and the bottom-up opportunity set outside the U.S. today.

P/V (“price to value”) is a calculation that compares the prices of the stocks in a portfolio to Southeastern’s appraisal of their intrinsic values. The ratio represents a single data point about a stock and should not be construed as something more. P/V does not guarantee future results, and we caution investors not to give this calculation undue weight.

The Funds are subject to stock market risk, meaning stocks in a Fund may fluctuate in response to developments at individual companies or due to general market and economic conditions. Also, because the Funds generally invest in 15 to 25 companies, share value could fluctuate more than if a greater number of securities were held. As it relates to the Partners Fund, mid-cap stocks held may be more volatile than those of larger companies. As it relates to the Small-Cap Fund, smaller company stocks may be more volatile with less financial resources than those of larger companies. As it relates to the International and Global Funds, investing in non-U.S. securities may entail risk due to non-US economic and political developments, exposure to non-US currencies, and different accounting and financial standards. These risks may be higher when investing in emerging markets.
