South Atlantic Capital will focus on long term results and will not attempt to make short term predictions on the economy, the market, or investment trends. We invest in companies that we believe have sustainable advantages, generate substantial free cash flow, and have high returns on equity. Portfolios are typically invested in approximately 20-25 holdings, usually U.S. listed stocks and ADR’s. More income oriented accounts may also own master limited partnerships. South Atlantic Capital will retain cash for buying opportunities. We believe that the best way to create a margin of safety against unexpected negative developments and market swings is to buy undervalued companies.
