All Cap with an emphasis on dividend pay stocks operating method
- We are growth and value driven investors.
- We typically purchase stocks we deem undervalued relative to their intrinsic value.
- We search for high quality dividend paying stocks that have historically paid dividends, and offer the potential to consistently raise their annual dividends.
- We are tactical traders when the market is volatile and in a trading range, and we will typically sell to protect profits or to limit losses.

Portfolio Construction and Limitations:
- May own Stocks that do not pay dividends although we minimize that ownership.
- May own bonds from time to time if we deem stocks are generally overvalued
- Own securities which are rated overweight/buy or neutral/hold by at least one of our correspondent research firms.
- Our strategies exhibit higher than average trading frequency and may not be appropriate for non-qualified accounts for those clients that are particularly sensitive to the tax effect from higher than normal portfolio turnover
- We typically avoid:
- Using margin – the portfolios are not leveraged or shorting any security
- Overweighting the portfolio in any one security by more than 20% of the entire value of the portfolio.
- Overweighting the portfolio in any one Sector by more than 30% of the entire value of the portfolio.
- Use of options
