Higher risk stocks have a greater expected return than lower risk stocks if investors rationally demand a proportional return for risk. Put another way, the risky long shot should pay off more than the safer favorite. However, there is evidence of a Low Volatility Anomaly possibly arising from behavioral biases leading many investors to over-weight risky stocks and under-weight safer stocks. Academic research into the anomaly contends that a portfolio of low risk stocks may generate higher returns than a portfolio of higher risk stocks.
Our Low Beta strategy focuses on stocks that are boring, predictable, and thus more likely overlooked by investors seeking high risk/reward attributes.

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.
