Once the active research universe has been established, we prioritize resources and research efforts on those companies that exhibit price momentum and positive quarterly earnings surprises. The research process is almost exclusively bottom-up, however top-down elements can be included, especially when broadly assessing if management’s outlook is plausible. Most frequently, top-down elements are used to help us confirm or reject the potential drivers of a company’s growth or an underlying investment thesis. Macro-economic factors considered among the most important in the investment process are the level of and term structure of interest rates, demographic trends, capital spending patterns and government regulation. The portfolio contains a diversified, high conviction list of between 45 and 55 stocks.
