Proven Value Strategy

Experienced Manager

True Partner

Stanley Capital is a private investment firm dedicated to an uncommon alignment of interests: a unique fee structure, significant personal investment, and scale constraints to ensure return on our own capital remains the primary economic incentive.


Our portfolio provides additional exposure to the most proven long-term investment strategy—value equity investing. We combine the advantages of rigorous fundamental research and the tenets of deep value investing with a tax-efficient long-short portfolio design.

The strategy aims to provide three ways to win:

  • Long undervalued high-quality companies
  • Short overvalued stocks with inflated expectations
  • Void the mediocre return prospects of the rest of the market

The chart above illustrates the return potential of being 130% long the cheapest 100 stocks in the S&P 500 and 30% short the 100 most expensive stocks, providing the same net exposure (100%) as the total S&P 500 Index. Over the past 40+ years, the 1.6x additional exposure to undervalued stocks translated into about 20x the amount of wealth, excluding fees, expenses, and structural tax advantages.
