The tactical approach is the same with all of our products. Our process focuses on identifying a few core holdings in each product. Once we have established those core holdings, then we will build a mixture of what we believe to be overlooked value, growth, and super growth companies.
Our research efforts are focused on fact gathering as opposed to opinion pieces. Our research analysts are “generalists.” They cover and report on several different types of companies as opposed to focusing on one sector and 10-15 companies in that sector that may or may not be relevant at the present time. By doing this we avoid being stuck in sectors that may be stagnant for sometime.
ROE: A measure of a corporation\'s profitability that reveals how much profit a company generates with the money shareholders have invested.
