Company Description

DCS Advisors primarily uses a fundamental valuation analysis for all long and short positions. They may consider, among other things, analyses of income, balance sheets and cash flow statements, capital structure management, industry, competitors and competitive position, public and private market valuation, and contingent liabilities. The firm applies their fundamental value orientation opportunistically across a range of companies and industries. DSC seeks to diversify investment holdings in order to limit portfolio correlation. While they mainly rely on fundamental valuation analysis, DSC may take a macro view or other view when selecting investments.DSC's main investment strategy focuses on acquiring long positions in undervalued securities or selling short overvalued securities. On the long side, the firm targets companies where an investment has limited downside and compelling appreciation potential. Companies in which they invest tend to have the following characteristics: an attractive valuation in absolute terms and/or with regard to growth prospects; a sustainable business model with opportunities to maintain or grow their business and operating margins; solid management and strong earnings quality; the ability to generate cash flow even in recessionary or distressed environments; reasonably assessable contingent or off balance sheet liabilities; and low risk of obsolescence. On the short side, DSC targets companies with few or none of these characteristics. In addition, DSC seeks investments that appear to be overvalued due to additional specific or industry-wide short term or sustained business flaws.DSC may use of a variety of securities, including, but not necessarily limited to, equities, options, fixed-income securities, bank debt, warrants, and derivative contracts such as total return swaps on equities or bank debt, credit default swaps, and/or swaptions. The firm may employ leverage and/or invest in illiquid securities such as private placements. DSC seeks to hedge certain risks and exposures associated by investing in derivatives, including equity index option or equity options on individual securities contracts, or through long positions which mitigate or limit portfolio exposure. They may also hedge foreign currency exposure for investments denominated in non-US Dollars.
