Unique Value Proposition

The portfolio management team will take into account a number of quantitative factors when determining Leon Frazer companies.

What is the five-year growth record in terms of cash flow, earnings and dividends?
What is the momentum on an annual basis in cash flow, earnings and dividend growth?
What is the current yield?
What is the company’s earnings variability?
How liquid is the stock?

This disciplined, conservative approach results in a generally low turnover of less than 15% annually in the portfolio.
A number of factors may lead the portfolio management team to sell or reduce a position. For example, changes in the economic environment, the health of the sector in which the company operates, or changes in the company’s strategic direction.
“If a position becomes over-valued we will trim it,” says Douglas Kee, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer. “But we generally won’t sell it all — that’s part of discipline. If a 5% weighting rises to 6%, we will trim it back to 5%. We will take the money and put in a stock that is undervalued.”
