Symons Capital Management's strategy is to examine individual companies to identify disconnects between stock price and business fundamentals. This includes analysis of a company's operating efficiencies and competitive advantages. They strive to determine how long a company's comparative advantage (cost structure, distribution system, brand recognition, operational scale, intellectual property) is may last, because they believe this predicts sustainable, superior long-term stock performance.Symons is not interested in chasing transient information for short-term action. They focus on extensive analysis of data for long-term impact. Through their independent research, Symons seeks to reduce the potential for severe losses, to improve the opportunity to realize substantial (and sustainable) gains and to limit risk associated with valuing stocks based on optimistic expectations. Symons' seeks long-term total return by looking for temporarily low valuations relative to their view of long-term price opportunities, stock by stock.The firm uses a five step investment process to identify stocks for purchase: (1) initial idea generation (2) preliminary valuation of stocks identified (3) fundamental analysis of stocks that have passed through steps one and two (4) portfolio construction, management and risk control and (5) application of sell parameters. They also purchase opportunistic holdings with a shorter-term horizon based on uncommon circumstances and opportunities.The first two steps in the investment process are used to identify from the entire universe of publicly-traded stocks, a manageable number of stocks that meet their investment standards. The third step involves independent research of each remaining stock that is based on a consistent, disciplined and pragmatic process where Symons analyzes a variety of valuation factors most relevant for each particular company. Step four involves building and managing a portfolio of attractively-valued stocks that diversifies risk based on macro economic factors that go beyond traditional sector and industry diversification. The final step provides a disciplined process for selling stocks at the appropriate time and valuation. The primary goal of the entire process is to manage risk and outperform benchmark indices over time.Symons' portfolios hold a limited number of stocks with no initial position exceeding 5% of portfolio value. Typical holding periods are about three years. Individual stock positions are constantly monitored and appropriately scaled back based on sector/industry exposure and company-specific factors. While their preference is to be fully invested, cash can be a byproduct of the investment process when attractively valued stocks are in limited supply.Symons sells a stock for one of three reasons: (1) the stock has reached what they believe is full value (2) a good stock must be sold to make funds available to buy a better stock or (3) the firm perceives a change in the company's internal or external fundamentals. Symons buys stocks of good companies expected to produce favorable results over the long-term. If they believe there is a breakdown in the fundamentals of a company, they will sell the stock without regard for portfolio turnover.
