What We Do
Since our inception, Shaker Investments has maintained the same time-tested investment philosophy.
This philosophy guides our entire research and portfolio management process:
Superior investment returns can be achieved by finding small- to mid-cap companies within growing industries that have strong fundamentals, catalysts for future growth, and are currently mispriced by the market.
Our investment philosophy is a function of our core belief that the best way to generate above market average returns is by finding value within the broad growth category.
Investment Process Overview
The Shaker investment process is predicated on a strong research-based stock picking philosophy.
Our time-tested research platform is guided by a five step approach:
Identify big-picture investment themes
Initiate a rigorous 11-point fundamental, bottom-up analysis of relevant companies
Compile a watch list of approximately 150-200 stocks
Build concentrated portfolios of long-term holdings while continuously rebalancing and portfolio risk management
Maintain an unwavering commitment to Shaker Investments’ sell discipline
