“The strict application of a deep margin of safety that has been the hallmark of each commitment has led to better than average results. It is only with fidelity to this strict ‘value imperative’ that outcomes can be consistently above average over the long term, particularly given the great risks associated with a richly valued market,” said Emmanuel Lemelson, Chief Investment Officer of Lemelson Capital Management.
The fund’s recent performance was driven in part by its significant short position in Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: LGND), a previous short position in World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE), and its current long positions in Kulicke & Soffa Industries (NASDAQ: KLIC), Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and World Wrestling Entertainment (NYSE: WWE) amongst others.
Disclosure: Lemelson Capital is long shares of AAPL, KLIC, WWE and short shares of LGND for its clients.
