Selecting Individual Stocks

Stock-focused portfolios will feature individual growth stocks – those from companies that generally have above-average records for earnings growth. To find specific stocks to overweight or underweight, CLS analyzes the current sector makeup of the major equity indexes and combines economic trends and future outlook with long-term demographic and cultural themes. We also consider momentum indicators, long- and short-term relative strength, overbought and oversold indicators, moving averages, and relative near-term performance.

Selecting Individual Bonds

Bond-focused portfolios will invest in U.S. government and agency bonds, corporate bonds, and mortgage-backed securities. CLS seeks to maximize total return with low risk by focusing on high quality bonds and by actively managing bond securities and maturity.
