Investment Manager

Chesapeake Asset Management focuses on investments in publicly-traded securities; cash, bonds and common and preferred stocks. The investment objectives of their discretionary clients range from aggressive growth to capital preservation. For taxable accounts, they incorporate tax considerations into long-term objectives since they constitute an important part of ultimate returns. Chesapeake tailors portfolios exclusively for each client. There are no model portfolios.The core of Chesapeake’s investment philosophy is the identification of what they believe to be undervalued securities through fundamental analysis. The firm looks for companies whose businesses are understandable, with competent managements, who are focused, and are shareholder oriented. Strong balance sheets are preferred, as are companies with high returns on capital. Investments are made in both large cap and small cap companies, both domestic and foreign. Chesapeake pays considerable attention to cash flow, which they feel is one of the best measures of profitability. The result of the search for undervalued securities is that stocks are generally bought when they are neglected and out of favor. Meaningful positions are taken and held with patience. Chesapeake's equity strategy focuses on a broad range of equity investment styles, including growth, core and value across the capitalization range from small cap through mid and large cap companies, both foreign and domestic, seeking securities that provide “growth at a reasonable price.” In terms of equities, they generally use the S&P 500 as a benchmark, and clients’ portfolios generally have a minimum of 20 holdings.Fixed income investments include municipal bonds, treasuries, or in some cases corporate debt, depending on income and tax requirements.
