Investment Philosophy

We use a number of criteria to evaluate companies for client portfolios. We look at a company’s historical performance as well as the potential for future performance. In particular, we consider a company’s profitability and its positioning in the market. We also prefer companies that pay dividends.

Focus on Dividends

We make dividend-paying stocks the centerpiece of our clients’ portfolios. Dividend-paying stocks can add significantly to overall returns and also can help smooth out volatile markets. Although we do invest in some select stocks that do not pay dividends, we focus mainly on those that do.

Who Wins the Race – Earnings or Tariffs?

There are times when the market movement seems not to reflect what is really going on. This is one of those times.

In the first quarter of this year, companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 reported earnings growth of almost 25 percent. In this quarter, earnings are expected to be almost as good. Yet at the start of the year, the S&P 500 was at 2683.7. At the close on July 30, the S&P was 2802.6, which is up only about 4.4 percent. If earnings are so strong, why isn't the market reflecting that?

Volatility Clouds Tug of War Between Earnings and Interest Rates

From a purely economic standpoint, future market movement should come down to the result of a tug of war between earnings and interest rates. For some time now, we have been seeing companies report exceptionally good earnings that – especially in light of historically low interest rates for years – have continued to fuel a rise in the markets. According to FactSet Earnings Insight for April 6, the estimated Standard & Poor’s 500 earnings growth rate for the first quarter is 17.1 percent.

What to Make of the Market Surge

Just after the new year, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 25,000. Then, on January 17, it closed above 26,000. Other market indices have recorded similar rises. So what’s going on?

Well, remember the story about the three blind men and the elephant? Each of the men was touching a different part of the elephant and so had a different opinion about the kind of animal it was. That's similar to how observers see the recent market surge.
