Education

The University of California, Santa Barbara (commonly referred to as UC Santa Barbara or UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 general campuses of the University of California system. The main campus is located on a 1,022-acre (414 ha) site near Goleta, California, United States, 8 miles (13 km) from Santa Barbara and 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Tracing its roots back to 1891 as an independent teachers' college, UCSB joined the University of California system in 1944 and is the third-oldest general-education campus in the system. UCSB traces its origins back to the Anna Blake School which was founded in 1891 and offered training in home economics and industrial arts. The Anna Blake School was taken over by the state in 1909 and became the Santa Barbara State Normal School. Intense lobbying by an interest group in the City of Santa Barbara, led by Thomas Storke and Pearl Chase, persuaded the State Legislature, Governor Earl Warren, and the Regents of the University of California to move the State College over to the more research-oriented University of California system in 1944. The State College system sued to stop the takeover, but the Governor did not support the suit. A state initiative was passed, however, to stop subsequent conversions of State Colleges to University of California campuses. From 1944 to 1958 the school was known as Santa Barbara College of the University of California, before taking on its current name. When the vacated Marine Corps training station in Goleta was purchased for the rapidly-growing college, Santa Barbara City College moved into the vacated State College buildings.

California State University, Long Beach (also known as Cal State Long Beach, Long Beach State, CSULB, LBSU, or The Beach) is the second largest campus of the 23 school California State University system (CSU) and one of the largest universities in the state of California by enrollment, its student body numbering 36,279 for the Fall 2012 semester.

Vice President, Portfolio Manager & Research Analyst
1997 - 2015

Steven A. Noroian & Associates takes a multi-disciplinary approach to stock selection using fundamental and technical analyses and bottom-up research to identify growth stocks. High quality companies are identified and analyzed. The reported accounting data is adjusted to focus on the company's cash flow return on assets, which helps to determine the company's strategic advantages. Finally, Noroian analyzes investor behavior toward the stock to determine when to buy.The firm analyzes a company's performance by focusing on its cash flow. They begin by relating the cash flow to the assets from which it was generated, creating the cash flow return on assets (CFROA). Noroian's stock selection process has three main components: corporate performance, valuation and timing. For corporate performance, they look for stable or improving CFROA, appropriate capital expenditures and strategic advantages. When considering valuation, the firm looks for a fair value range that is appreciably higher than the current stock price. Then, Noroian considers timing, i.e., when to own a stock and when to sell.From a universe of several thousand companies, Noroian narrows their focus through CFROA analysis. Then they determine if the stock price adequately reflects underlying corporate performance. If a discrepancy exists between the company's performance and its stock price, the firm tries to understand why. Researching the company and its industry, Noroian searches for any strategic advantage that will provide the impetus for the stock price to reflect the real corporate performance.Next, they study the stock price history to understand investors' perceptions of the company. At this point, Noroian determines the most opportune time to own the stock. They analyze accumulation, distribution, relative strength, money flows and price patterns can provide insight as to the appropriate time to buy.Similar to their buy disciplines, Noroian's sell disciplines are centered on price targets, CFROA analysis and strategic advantages. In addition, a stock may be sold when it violates predetermined price support levels. Price targets are established before a stock is purchased and may change due to competition and an evolving economy. When the risk/reward profile of a stock in the equity portfolio becomes less favorable, it is sold.Though not limited by sector, Noroian tends to invest in the stocks of US mid-cap and large-cap companies in the health technology, health services, technology services, electronic technology and energy minerals sectors. the firm maintains a low turnover rate.
