Deep Value Strategy
A Pure Deep Value Approach to Equities
Why Deep Value Strategy?
Absolute Value Return Focus: A company-specific event, cyclical business occurrence or temporary change in industry dynamics could lead to market dislocations. We invest in out-of-favor securities that are trading at very low valuation levels – whose current market price is significantly undervalued. Investment candidates, at the time of purchase, will have a current market price approximately half of their calculated 3/5 year intrinsic value.
Patience and Discipline: We stick to the principles of our systematic investment approach that have been tested through various market cycles. We analyze each company along quantitative and qualitative factors, focusing on the reward/risk assessment for and understanding the Margin of Safety of each investment.
Bottom Up Construction: We build portfolios from the bottom up, weighting securities based on the reward/risk profiles. We believe this allows us to achieve the portfolio best designed for long-term outperformance, as opposed to strategies limited by sector, industry or other restrictions.
Ignore Market Noise: The markets are increasingly focused on short-term movements or “noise”, providing opportunities to investors, like us, focused on long-term value.
Return to Active Management: Investors impatient with passive strategies that consistently underperform are turning to active managers to meet long-term investment objectives. We have a long history of actively managing our strategies, never veering from our approach.
Attractive Portfolio Valuation: Valuation characteristics near all-time absolute lows and historical discount to the overall marketplace. Overall portfolio valuation discount to the market is typically 40-70%.
