Lyon Capital Management's investment style is best described as value-contrarian.  Like some of history's greatest investors (Ben Graham, Warren Buffet, John Neff and John Templeton), we are patient long-term oriented managers. Investment research takes time. When done correctly it is painstaking, detailed work.  We are true investors, not "speculators." Once an investment is selected, it is likely we will hold it for a significant period of time. It can seem boring and tedious, even if the investment does well. Much of the time it feels like treading water.  But patience and discipline are our hallmark and the strategy has worked well for our clients for over 20 years.
