The state of preventative mental health care in the U.S. has been thrust onto the national scene in recent days, after the monstrous murder of 27 people including 20 children in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Décrivez-nous votre philosophie d'investissement en quelques mots.

Je cherche de la croissance à un prix raisonnable. Je préfère les entreprises au premier ou au deuxième rang de leur secteur. J'accorde une importance particulière aux dirigeants. Par rapport à deux entreprises d'un même secteur, la direction peut faire la différence entre celle qui est rentable et celle qui ne l'est pas. Je prends également en compte l'évaluation du titre.

Wed, 2013-01-02 13:46

No regrets, none at all. Over the last couple of years I have read a number of retiring CEOs asked by various newspapers whether they have had any regrets, all that I read said they had no regrets.  My initial reaction was to roll my eyes; I found this a bit much because in my career, I have and have had many regrets.
