MindShare Capital Management (MCM) employs a growth investment style that seeks to generate superior returns over every market cycle. Their philosophy is based on the fundamental idea that earnings growth ultimately drives investor returns. The firm utilizes a rigorous research process to identify companies and sectors with accelerating operating fundamentals supported by strong technical trends with high quality earnings and sustainable growth. MCM strives to position portfolios to maximize absolute investment performance in any market environment. They do not attempt to time market tops and bottoms. MCM remains fully invested in stocks that offer the greatest potential to generate long-term capital appreciation. Though they are not limited by sector, the firm tends to invest in the stocks of US small-cap companies in the electronic technology, health technology and technology services sectors. MCM maintains a high turnover rate.The firm's stock selection process begins with daily and weekly fundamental and technical screens. MCM's technical research identifies companies whose stocks are experiencing superior relative strength as demonstrated by rising stock prices and increasing trading volume. Their fundamental analysis seeks companies with accelerating operating fundamentals including sales, earnings, cash flow, orders and backlog and positive earnings surprises. To evaluate the quality and sustainability of an opportunity, MCM conducts further analysis to identify the drivers behind the numbers which may include new products, new management, renewed industry strength and demographic trends. Once a stock that meets their fundamental and technical criteria is identified, MCM analyzes its valuation relative to its growth rate and industry peers.Once an investment has been made, MCM manages risk through the constant reevaluation of each company in their portfolio. They monitor each stocks fundamental and technical performance. A stock will be sold if there is deterioration in share price, underlying fundamentals or industry fundamentals. A stock may also be sold if there are portfolio weighting issues or if a security is identified that offers better relative potential performance.MCM offers two small-cap growth investment strategies. Both strategies are based on premise that earnings growth is the primary driver of stock returns, however they differ in their application of that premise. The MindShare Small Cap Growth strategy seeks to identify the most dynamic, rapidly growing companies whose earnings are still accelerating. The MindShare Small Cap Turnaround Growth strategy seeks to identify companies whose stock prices remain well below historical highs but whose earnings growth prospects are improving.Both funds utilize MCM's core investment process. Both funds also apply the same basic buy and sell disciplines, using a combination of fundamental, technical and portfolio management criteria. The difference in their strategies lies in the specific criteria used in the application of the process. The MindShare Small Cap Growth strategy only invests in companies exhibiting the highest revenue and earnings growth rates that are dramatically exceeding investor expectations. The Mindshare Small Cap Turnaround Growth strategy invests in companies undergoing a re-acceleration in growth prospects after a period of weakness. Unlike the Small Cap Growth strategy, these companies are not necessarily exhibiting the highest revenue and earnings growth rates. It is this difference in the application of MCM's philosophy that results in two small-cap growth strategies with little stock overlap, typically limited to 15%.
