“Money Life Market Call” with Buffalo Large Cap Fund PM Ken Laudan

January 24, 2022

Buffalo Funds Large Cap portfolio manager Ken Laudan recently appeared on the “Money Life with Chuck Jaffe” podcast.

During the call, Ken goes in-depth on large-cap investing, providing an overview of his investment methodology, and also provides his thoughts on the following companies:

  • Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW)
  • ASML Holding (NASDAQ: ASML)
  • MongoDB (NASDAQ: MDB)
  • DocuSign (NASDAQ: DOCU)
  • Block (NYSE: SQ)
  • PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL)
  • Restoration Hardware (NYSE: RH)
  • Medtronic (NYSE: MDT)
  • Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON)

We continue to follow a very well defined investment template for investing in what we call innovative, high quality, durable, large cap growth companies. We do tweak the portfolio to reflect a de-risk environment, while continuing to own some of these high quality durable growth names that we think will be beneficiaries of these major, super cycles over the next 5 to 10 years.
