Volatile markets can feel confusing
Wild swings in the market can test the nerves of the average do-it-yourself investor, and even many professionals, particularly those who rely on mutual funds and lack direct experience in buying and selling stocks.
We designed an investment strategy to take advantage of volatility
At Two Point Capital Management, we welcome volatile markets, because they are the best time and place to find investment opportunities. In fact, our clients tell us they anticipate the coming of a more active market with some enthusiasm.
Volatility is actually the norm in the stock market, and not the exception. So we’ve spent decades looking for the best ways to maximize opportunities during turbulent times, without taking undue risk. Our strategy is a proprietary, hybrid approach: Value+Quality™ makes use of important elements of several investment philosophies, including value, growth, and what used to be called “blue-chip” investing.
We look for bargains or “value,” but only in companies that we feel are sound, well managed, and poised to grow nicely over the long term. That requires knowing individual companies on an intimate basis. Investment managers who like to make “the big sector calls”—buy oil! buy coal! buy technology!—have a hard time navigating an up-and-down market; its unpredictability works against their strategy.
