Our Pure Growth portfolio typically invests in equities. It focuses on companies that meet or exceed specific fundamental ratios based on their return on equity, price to earnings to growth ratios, and liquidity.
The Centric Core portfolio seeks to complement other equity investment strategies. It tends to take on less risk and offer slightly less reward than the S&P 500 over time. Most importantly, my own research suggests that it is less correlated to value and growth than the S&P 500 Index, making it a potentially better source of diversification.
The Leveraged Value portfolio is a fundamental, value portfolio with a bias toward small-cap equities. These smaller, less followed companies are more likely to become mispriced, creating a buying opportunity for the strategy.
Cable Car Capital invests globally in public companies. The firm screens public companies using an intensive, fundamental research process that seeks to identify mispriced securities using a value-oriented approach with a multi-year time horizon. Cable Car Capital capitalizes opportunistically on shorter-term or special situation (e.g. spinoffs, reorganizations, merger arbitrage) opportunities while maintaining a concentrated core portfolio of contrarian/out-of-favor but high-quality longs and over-hyped or mismanaged single-name shorts. For non-U.S. public companies, Cable Car utilizes American Depository Receipts which are called ADRs. These are receipts of shares of foreign companies that trade on the U.S. stock market exchanges.
The objective of VL Capital’s U.S. Equity Strategy is to apply our systematic investment process to domestic equities while adhering to the principles of fundamental value investing. The proprietary stock-selection system we use functions by combining several tested stock evaluation methods derived from both academia and successful investors. Each stock receives a numeric ranking based on the financial attributes we evaluate on a per company basis.
