The Undervalued Opportunities investment strategy is suited for investors who are seeking concentrated exposure to securities. The strategy will seek both investment in securities and short selling. Through active management the strategy strives to beat the annualized returns of the S&P 500 over a long period of time.
The strategy tends to look for investments in companies experiencing periods of growth in their businesses. However, the strategy will seek investments in any situation where it feels the opportunity for reward sufficiently outweighs the corresponding risk.
Fundamental analysis generally forms the basis for our long or short thesis. This may include but is not limited to: an understanding of the company’s business, an evaluation of company management, the company’s standing within its industry, analysis of the company’s financial statements and annual filings. Additionally, we may engage in forms of cyclical analysis and technical analysis.
Capital is allocated to our best ideas. This will normally result in a concentrated portfolio of holdings. The strategy may use leverage when it believes advantageous based on market conditions or security specific opportunity.
Portfolio holdings are reviewed periodically. Holdings are evaluated for potential thesis change. Holdings are sold if it is believed that capital could be more effectively allocated.
The portfolio may engage in the buying or shorting of ETFs and ADRs, hold high levels of cash, or trade any other publicly traded instrument (within the parameters outlined by Covestor), if it believes there is sufficient opportunity for investment returns.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Performance of the Portfolio Manager's account is calculated by Covestor on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and broker commissions.

Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".
