OBJECTIVE/PROCESS | PERFORMANCE/PORTFOLIO

Investment Objective

The Villere Balanced Fund (the "Fund") seeks to achieve long-term capital growth consistent with preservation of capital and balanced by current income.

Investment Process

  1. Screen stock ideas from a network of trusted analysts who follow the core themes of Villere & Co., advisor to the Fund
    • Low debt with strong cash flow
    • Low price/earnings ratio (P/E) relative to growth
    • Multi-cap, with a small to mid cap focus
    • Dominate niche market with a high barrier to entry
    • Contrarian, out of favor
  2. Introduce ideas with "diamond in the rough" approach by:
    • Screening for potential for long-term growth
    • Visiting with company management and interview competitors/suppliers
    • Determining value and whether the investment candidates fit into current themes/needs of the Fund

Cash flow measures the cash generating capability of a company, calculated by subtracting total liabilities from total assets.

 

Price to Earnings (P/E) Ratio is a common tool for comparing the prices of different common stocks and is calculated by dividing the current market price of a stock by the earnings per share. The P/E ratio is not a measure of future performance or growth.
