Lyrical Asset Management Investments employs a value investment approach. They believe that a portfolio of companies with low valuations relative to their long-term normalized earnings power will outperform the overall market over time. The firm's philosophy is to invest only in businesses that they believe are of high quality. Investments are limited to publicly-traded equity securities and cash equivalents. Clients may impose restrictions on investing in certain securities or types of securities.LAM begins with a universe of the top US 1,000 stocks (market-cap around $3 billion), and then uses a proprietary screen to generate investment candidates. The screen estimates a fair price for each stock applying a normalized multiple to an estimate of 5-year forward normalized earnings, which is calculated by taking the historical earnings trend line of a company and consensus estimates for future earnings and statistically extrapolating forward 5 years. Each portfolio candidate/stock idea goes through a fundamental research process. This process is designed to develop an understanding of the business, including drivers of growth and profitability, competitive advantages, position and leverage with customers and suppliers, historical and potential business threats/opportunities, and management style, objectives and incentives. Attractive investment ideas are considered for inclusion in the portfolio. These are companies where Lyrical believes the investment controversy to be temporary, where the underlying business has sufficient quality and durability, and where the discount in the stock price is large enough to compensate for the risks of the investment.For Lyrical Long-Only Partners, LAM uses the same screening process and the same general investment methodology as they use for long positions. They also seek to sell short overvalued securities which can be bought to cover when their stock price declines to the price target. For Lyrical US Hedged Value Fund (LYRHX), they generally sell short sector-specific ETFs to hedge market exposures from LYRHX's long positions. Lyrical doesn't attempt to time the markets, or focus on weightings relative to any index.
