Commentary

Oakmark Select Fund: Third Quarter 2022 and Fiscal Year-End

September 30, 2022

Business values are far more stable than stock prices. In volatile markets like this, you can expect increased portfolio activity. We purchased four new companies in the quarter and sold out of three.

Oakmark Equity and Income Fund: Third Quarter 2022 and Fiscal Year-End

September 30, 2022

We do not know when the market environment will become more rewarding, but we know that over time price and value come together often enough to generate successful investing outcomes.

We do value investing differently

At Oakmark, we don’t have an opinion about how equities will perform this year, if a recession will start or if the political parties will produce pro-growth candidates for 2020. As long-term investors, we don’t think it matters.
