MCM’s Global Equity investment process focuses on identifying high quality companies with earnings growth potential. These companies are headquartered around the world in developed and emerging economies. Through our proprietary quantitative screening, fundamental research and traditional valuation techniques, we seek total returns primarily through capital appreciation and secondarily through dividend payments.
The strategy seeks long-term capital appreciation by owning equity securities and ETF’s of domestic and international companies. Our style is designed to meet a variety of investment objectives as we seek to provide consistent growth of principal and moderate dividend income.
The Global Equity Strategy is our own unique blend of incorporating top-down macroeconomic analysis with bottom-up stock selection. Under the top-down viewpoint, we evaluate the current economic environment, monetary and fiscal policies, and secular trends to identify the sectors or industries that are most likely to outperform the market. We start with a universe of several thousand companies and exchange-traded funds, sorting this list down to a manageable number of investment alternatives through a rigorous series of proprietary quantitative screens that include earnings growth, cash flow and financial condition. We are open to all market capitalizations, but most candidates will be larger than $500 million. After this screening, companies undergo a thorough analysis focusing on qualitative factors such as growth potential, market position, proprietary advantages, management capabilities and insider ownership before investing.
