Portfolio information


We use screens to identify industries and companies that show above average earning power. Then, we rate stocks using a matrix of various fundamental and quantitative factors. Some of these factors include above-average sales and earnings per-share growth rates. Finally, we review the company's original source material including quarterly reports and participate in quarterly conference calls and webcasts.


The screening process helps identify companies that meet specific criteria for growth and other metrics.

Sell discipline

We sell positions when the original reason for the purchase no longer exists or we find a better idea.
