As long-time students of the stock market, we have developed valuation models to assess the relative merits of HI-quality companies. We scour annual reports, SEC filings and news to independently determine company valuations, thereby avoiding the pitfalls of herd-mentality investing. Quarterly earnings conference calls with management keep us abreast of corporate developments and give us insight into the heartbeat of corporate leadership. On a daily basis, we post news from the HI-quality companies held in your portfolio.
We found these investment morsels interesting and hope you will, too.
