The manager makes an opportunistic selection of small to mid cap stocks based on an unrecognised growth or an undervaluation story. Following company investor presentations, the manager identifies situations where company management indicates the company has a new growth story or is overlooked in comparison to its peers.
Manager research couples company management presentations with basic fundamental and trading data surrounding the company. These stocks tend not to be widely covered by the analyst community and it may take time for the stories to come to fruition or to be fairly valued by the market.
The manager considers approximately five real opportunities per week. Investment level is opportunistically based on confidence in the story and the fundamentals of the company. The manager invests around 10% in each opportunity, but may purchase more if he's confident in the story and if the stock depreciates.
Time horizon depends on the story and valuation or volatility. In a small cap stock with an exciting fundamental growth story, the model may wait as long as 6 months to capture value. In a stock that has been overlooked in comparison to its peers but has the same fundamental drivers, the manager may realise his gain in a few days.
A portion of the investment portfolio may be in more macro, international themes that the model captures with ETFs.
