"INVESTMENT IS MOST INTELLIGENT, WHEN IT IS MOST BUSINESSLIKE."
-- Benjamin Graham

identification

  • Utilizing screens and filters, we identify stocks with good cash flows, stronger than average financial stability, and above average return on total capital.

  • Sort those symbols using various metrics to determine which portfolio objective best aligns with the stock characteristics.

  • Sort the stocks by portfolio with the strongest financial advantage relative to their industry and sector.

diversification

  • We construct three domestic equity portfolios for three unique objectives.

  • Maintain diversification of sector and size by utilizing strict portfolio rules outlined in our investment policy statement.

  • Maintain awareness of correlations to economic indicators, so we never allow a client to be overexposed to interest rates or the price of oil.

valuation

  • After identifying companies with a strong financial advantage, we look to understand which equities we believe are properly valued or undervalued compared to potential earnings expectations and focus our research efforts on those companies.

  • Use our expected future value processes to constantly analyze the stocks already owned in each of the portfolios.

  • Identify the current price multiple as it compares to it's trailing five year high and low multiple.

qualitative

  • Comb through research reports, economic surveys and investor presentations to fully understand the companies business operations and whether the company could be in favor in certain economic environments.

  • Determine whether the stock fits well alongside the other symbols in the appropriate portfolio.

  • Present investment decisions to the investment committee for discussion and approval for trading.
