CSC Small Cap Value Fund: Investing Like Buffett and Graham

This fund's manager pays homage to the two investing gurus by buying cheap and cheaper stocks.

Like Warren Buffett, Jeff Bronchick has an eye for bargains and the patience to wait for them to pay off. Bronchick, who runs CSC Small Cap Value Fund (symbol CSCSX), seeks to mimic not only Buffett’s investing style but also that of the late Benjamin Graham, considered the father of modern securities analysis.

Bronchick screens for two types of stocks. So-called Graham stocks are just flat-out cheap. They typically sell for big discounts to book value (assets minus liabilities) and other value measures. “Buffett stocks” are better companies with steady profit and sales growth and relatively favorable share prices. All the companies CSC buys are small or midsize, with up to $5 billion in market value.
