Earlier this month, we launched the Diamond Hill International strategy, recognizing that international markets can offer long-term opportunity for the patient investor. Grady Burkett, CFA and Krishna Mohanraj, CFA join to discuss the broad and growing opportunity set in these markets and why we believe our approach to investing is well suited to the international marketplace.
Portfolio Manager John McClain, CFA, joins us to discuss recent developments in the high yield market and how volatility can provide opportunity for investors focused on security selection. After the difficulties of the previous month and the rough start to November, our high yield team believes that opportunities have been uncovered if investors focus on long term fundamentals.
John Loesch, Banking analyst, Co-Director of Research and Portfolio Manager joins us for an in-depth discussion about Bank OZK, a high-quality bank that has demonstrated an unmatched ability to grow intrinsic value at attractive rates and has done so with remarkable consistency. Businesses like Bank OZK don’t come along every day, and John discusses what excites us about these types of investments. Read more about Bank OZK in our August Industry Perspective.
