Suggesting that their views on a particular type of value investing are more relevant than ever, the authors note that during the —09 financial meltdown, neither modern portfolio theory nor classic Graham—Dodd value techniques seemed to deliver the anticipated results.
The former involves all the actions aimed at generating revenue and profits in the near term. The latter involves not only those traditional business activities but also the completion of transactions that can generate long-term wealth e. In his shareholder communications, Whitman has long described most investors as OPMIs—outside passive minority investors.
This latest pronouncement asserts that most OPMIs invest only in common stocks and that they judge managements solely on their ability to conduct traditional business activities i. OPMIs ignore other types of corporate securities—such as options, credit instruments, preferreds, and other equity instruments with control provisions—instead devoting an inordinate amount of time and effort to the question, What will this stock sell for in the future?
These investors will spend less time trying to predict near-term earnings and the temporal movements of stock prices and more time ascertaining and documenting the answer to the more fundamentally relevant question, What will this business be worth in the future? Its illustrations of leveraged buyouts, creative takeover financings, corporate restructurings, and other techniques used by activist investors are too dated to be instructive.
But it seems just as harsh for the authors to display a total lack of respect for investing in growth stocks, opportunities in emerging markets, the concept of total return, and other notions about money management that have also been used successfully by competent professionals.
