Our Investment Philosophy


At Mok Capital Management, we seek to maximize investment returns in the most reliable ways we can, by drawing from decades of experience in the finance industry.

We buy stock in growing businesses and industries at value pricing, taking advantage of volatility in markets and issues. In most cases we also look for the underlying momentum in the issue. We are disciplined investors; thus, we seek to buy low and sell high. Upon our discretion, we exit a stock when it exceeds our perceived value, or when other opportunities offer significantly greater potential. We may, in special circumstances, also purchase issues that are not growing businesses, but which exhibit particularly strong potential for appreciation.

In taxable accounts, where practical, we seek to hold shares so our clients obtain long-term capital gains and minimize tax liability. We attempt to reduce risks by diversifying by issue, geography, sector, and industry, as well as other key characteristics which we feel are important depending on your specific financial needs. We also place particular emphasis on industries, sectors, and countries that we believe have superior return potential. Our offices are based in the heart of the Silicon Valley, and thus we have become adept at discovering new technologies with long-term growth potential.

For larger accounts, we have a plethora of strategies to reduce risk and/or enhance income. For larger and more aggressive accounts, as appropriate, we may act more opportunistically, using short sales and more speculative purchases, in line with a client's desires.

For more balanced or income-oriented accounts, we generally seek to maximize returns by mixing conservative, dividend-bearing stocks, and other issues with opportunity for gains, with more traditional fixed-income investments. We are particularly mindful of the effects of inflation and increases in interest rates on income accounts, and we invest accordingly.
