The firm owns stock in a diverse group of over 50 public and private companies in wide range of industries including, but not limited to, manufacturing, retail, energy and finance.

PCM seeks to maximize after-tax capital appreciation by assuming high levels of risk in an aggressively managed portfolio of securities. There are no restrictions on the type of instruments in which they may invest, although PCM invests primarily in publicly traded equity securities, as well as options, warrants, and swaps related to equity securities. The firm makes investment decisions on the basis of fundamental security analysis which is premised on research into the capital structure, financial statements and management of a company. Portfolio managers conduct such research by reference to, among other things, regulatory filings by issuers, data provided by regulatory agencies, discussions and meetings with executives and industry experts, periodicals and on-line news sources, third-party research and independent data providers. After the research, portfolio managers will form the basis for investment decisions through the judgments about the financial strength, valuation and outlook of a company.
