Our Story

Founded in 1995, Olstein Capital Management follows an accounting-driven, value-oriented investing philosophy based on the premise that the price of a common stock may not reflect the true value of a company's underlying business.

Olstein's investment team employs analytical and valuation methods pioneered by Robert Olstein as co-founder and publisher of the Quality of Earnings Report. Valuations are based on free cash flow. Reliable valuations require a thorough understanding of a company's accounting practices and an assessment of a company's Quality of Earnings.
