Spektra Capital is a value-oriented manager. We invest and trade principally in equity securities in publicly traded companies in North America and seek to obtain absolute returns while managing investment risk. We may use moderate leverage and run a concentrated portfolio. The heart of our investment operations are identifying securities we feel are significantly undervalued, offer a wide margin of safety, and possess meaningful upside potential. Through fundamental analysis, and in-depth company-specific research, we seek to identify mispricing’s in the marketplace with evident positive catalysts. Our research is primarily focused on fundamentals and we generally do not give any credence to technical analysis. Our bottom-up approach involves financial analysis and modeling to determine our independent appraisal of the fair value of a particular security. After identifying potentially undervalued issues, we conduct company and industry-specific research to attempt to ascertain a company’s long-term prospects. Our disciplined approach assesses the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of a particular investment opportunity while considering the strength and quality of the underlying company. Through our business and financial analysis we identify several types of opportunities we feel are compelling which include turnarounds, short-term challenges, out of favor industries, misperceptions, overreactions, and mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs. In all cases we seek to conduct an independent appraisal of a company’s worth and invest when a particular security is deemed undervalued.
