How do we assess the Quality of Earnings?

We assess the quality of a company's earnings by answering three important questions. Ask Us

Individual Investors

If you wish to invest directly in one of our funds, please proceed to the Forms and Documents page for an Olstein Funds Prospectus and Account Application. Please refer to the Prospectus section titled, How to Purchase Fund Shares for instructions on purchasing fund shares by mail, wire, or telephone and for making subsequent investments in an existing account.

The Olstein Funds are available through most major brokerage and advisory firms. We believe that over time, investors will benefit from continued professional investment guidance. A financial professional can help investors determine their investment objectives and time horizon, risk tolerance, and appropriate share class. While Olstein Capital Management does not provide individualized investment advice, we may be able to assist you with general fund information and administrative account support.

The Prospectus also describes additional account features that may be of interest to you including an Automatic Investment Plan and the availability of Fund shares for use in all types of tax-advantaged retirement plans such as: IRAs, Educational IRAs (Coverdell Education Savings Accounts), employer-sponsored defined contribution plans (including 401(k) plans), and 403(b)(7) retirement plans.

Cash flow is the net amount of cash and cash-equivalents being transferred into and out of a business. At the most fundamental level, a company’s ability to create value for shareholders is determined by its ability to generate positive cash flows, or more specifically, maximize long-term free cash flow. Free cash flow represents the cash a company generates after accounting for cash outflows to support operations and maintain its capital assets. Unlike earnings or net income, free cash flow is a measure of profitability that excludes the non-cash expenses of the income statement and includes spending on equipment and assets as well as changes in working capital from the balance sheet.
