How an International Stock Fund Finds Its Winning Recipe

September 18, 2019

Overview

Buffalo International Fund co-portfolio manager Nicole Kornitzer, CFA, was recently interviewed by Barron’s about the parallels she finds in gourmet cooking and international investing. In the article, she describes the team’s approach to picking premier growth stocks based on in-depth analysis of company fundamentals and highlights the team’s long-term investment philosophy that focuses less on short-term market movements.

We need to be able to answer the question of why is the company going to continue growing.
