Fewer Stocks and Higher Conviction

It is hard to outperform with portfolios holding large numbers of stocks, yet most active funds tend to do just that. Learn how to construct portfolios that maximize risk-adjusted returns based on extensive testing and research.

 

Concentration allows the portfolio to take on just the right level of company-specific risk to give a better chance for outperformance, but is concentrated enough to gain from superior stock selection.

Disciplined Risk Management Allows Concentrated Positions

The preserve-capital point is based on extensive testing and research, and is calculated for each stock at the time of investment. Exit if stocks fall to preserve capital point, and then hold cash instead. Warren Buffett said it best, “Rule #1: Never lose money; Rule #2: Never forget Rule #1.” Risk management does not have to be complex, but it has to be done.
