Research Philosophy

Stocks trade in a range that tends to mean revert around an average or through the cycle relative PE multiple.

That the market places a greater emphasis on nearer term earnings estimates when pricing stocks (due to greater accuracy of near term estimates)

Opportunities to generate alpha from mean reversion around a relative PE and/or differentiated market earnings estimates
