We use a blend of quantitative and fundamental research to help identify good businesses undergoing positive change.
Argent Capital’s Mid Cap ETF uses a blend of quantitative and fundamental research to identify good businesses undergoing positive internal or external change. We seek to own these companies for the long term. Argent believes that companies undergoing positive change, driven either by internal or external factors, frequently experience underappreciated growth. We believe that good businesses are those that exhibit above-average profitability, generate above-average cash flow, and have management teams that are good stewards of capital.
We start with an investment universe consisting of publicly-traded U.S. stocks with market capitalizations ranging from $1.5 to $20 billion. The remaining companies are screened by our proprietary quantitative tool, The Argent Alpha Model. The Argent Alpha Model is utilized to point the team toward the right companies, in the right sectors, at the right time undergoing positive change. The resulting portfolio is highly concentrated with 35-50 stocks and exhibits high active share and low turnover.
The Argent Mid Cap ETF seeks long-term capital appreciation.
