BEV is an acronym for business and economic valuation model. It is a proprietary quantitative and qualitative equity investment system based on 20 years of research and development.

Buy, hold and sell decisions are based on a formula that scores the stock valuation in relationship to the company's business fundamentals, macroeconomics, and industry conditions.

The system employs, generally, a passive buy-and-hold strategy with minimal re-balancing activity. A stocks maybe replaced or rebalanced once in a few years. Although the research (BEV portfolio 1.0) tracks the performance of a single portfolio with 1, 3, 5, and 10 years holding periods, the BEV's average holding period is 3 to 5 years.

BEV invests in small, mid and large cap stocks listed on major stock exchanges (US and International). The system is designed to minimize speculative and high-risk trading activity. BEV does not employ options, futures, shorting, hedging, or day trading techniques.
