“What is in favour in the stock market is always in flux, with what seems to be an increasing amount of unpredictability. While it is important to study the currents in which we swim as investors, I believe it is most important to focus on what is enduring over time. To me this means filtering through the noise and investing in leading businesses with resilient and growing competitive advantages and/or companies that may be evolving into future leaders. Combined with a long-term focus, I believe this is the path to durable wealth creation over time.”
