The Master Portfolio utilizes a classic investment approach with a focus on solid, undervalued stocks and expert stock selection. Established at the company’s founding in October 1974, its documented long-term performance is the result of the consistent application of Burney’s proprietary analytical methods.
Though most material information is “efficiently” embedded in the price of a stock, the market makes systematic pricing errors that can be identified and exploited using quantitative techniques. Employing proprietary methods developed over the past half century, Burney analyzes a factor library containing over a thousand descriptors of a company’s Growth, Valuation, Profitability, Safety, and Technical attributes. Factors associated with excess return are used in analytical models that score stocks based on their excess return potential.
