Market Insight Outlook

Simpson Capital uses research and analysis to understand and describe the investment environment by forming a market insight outlook of the political economic landscape. Sometimes SCM may come up with an insight after a long period of thought, or suddenly out of thin air.

Once SCM has a feel for the bigger picture, it applies these themes to the layers of economic activity at the micro-economics levels. An outlook is developed for each of the ten industrial sectors comprising the market by discerning factor patterns. Individual stocks are followed in three tracking lists ranging from a universe of one hundred stocks down to the best in each sector..

Issue selection selection for your holdings are drawn from these lists after diligent consideration and followed carefully for any changes in initial assumptions.  Decisions are made broadly across all of SCM’s portfolios rather than isolated buy/hold decisions.
