Investment Approach

Investment Approach

Brandywine Blue Fund

The Fund employs Friess Associates' research-driven investment process. This process seeks to capitalize on the relationship between earnings performance and stock prices by isolating companies experiencing rapid earnings growth that sell at reasonable multiples of earnings estimates and show promise to positively surprise Wall Street.

The Fund maintains a mid cap or larger focus by uncovering stocks usually exceeding $6 billion in market cap that meet its earnings growth and valuation criteria.

Friess employs a true bottom-up approach, meaning sector weightings and other characteristics are byproducts of its company-by-company research.
