Press release from: Sidstone, Gray & Partners

Investors search for diversification for a multitude of reasons. Stock specific risk can be diversified by increasing the number of holdings in order to mitigate the effects of a blow up in any particular stock. However, the greater challenge lies with eradicating systematic or market risk.
Sidstone, Gray & Partners is a middle market Merger and Acquisition Advisory Firm focused on delivering successful results to our Clients. Our M&A professionals provide unbiased, qualified and technically sound advice to business owners on mergers, acquisitions and corporate finance matters.
Market risk can never be totally eliminated within a stock portfolio however it is possible to decrease the level of correlation within a portfolio. For example, investors could favor small caps over large caps. This is feasible because it is possible to find stocks whose earnings are less exposed to the economy at large. Indeed, it is easy to find counter-cyclical stocks within the small cap universe. One more option is to reduce the number of holdings and have a few ‘focused’ positions. However, this approach will increase stock specific risk, so it is hard to argue that it is reducing risk.
Sidstone, Gray & Partners team has first-hand experience in family-owned businesses, entrepreneurship and finance as well as a deep understanding of complex accounting issues, taxes and estate planning concerns. Our goal is to become our clients’ trusted advisor, providing personalized, independent advisory services that help determine the right course of action while maximizing shareholder value with proven expertise and integrity.
Non-Correlated Portfolio. Absolute Returns. Equity market risk can be reduced via hedging or other alternative strategies. Indeed, the single most important issue facing investors today may well be how to produce non-directional returns in a world that is becoming increasingly correlated. Stock Beta - Capital Asset Pricing Model CAPM enthusiasts such as Harry Markowitz would tend to argue that all the profit and price drivers will be captured in the beta of the stock. However, beta-by definition-is always a historical measure and will tell not necessarily predict the future. Markets change and there is an art to identifying and diversifying the profit drivers within a portfolio. Whilst beta will capture some elements, the factors of error in this approach may preclude its usefulness. Diversifying Investment - The essence of diversifying a portfolio is to diversify the profit drivers within it. Naturally, this approach relies on the corollary that earnings drive prices. The difficult part lies in identifying the profit drivers. The following method is a process based on that taken by the founder of Sony, Akio Morita in Made in Japan: Akio Morita and Sony. The investor discovers the individual profit drivers, he can then seek to diversify them within a portfolio.
