Ancora Advisors seeks to invest in companies that are trading at a significant discount to their liquidation or going-concern value. Certain issues may trade below tangible book value. This can occur in times of broad market pessimism or Wall Street concentration with a company's near-term outlook. Other companies have hidden assets that are not reflected in the company's financial statements, such as investments in private companies or understated real estate values. Ancora works to understand catalysts that will unlock the value of the target company's assets, although Ancora may also buy based on a company being too cheap to ignore.In addition, Ancora seeks to invest in companies that are trading sufficiently below the calculation of intrinsic value based on the firm's \"Normalized Return\" analysis to provide potential total return of 50% or more over a 3 year time horizon. Sell decisions are based on valuation, risk and portfolio guidelines. As individual stocks approach their intrinsic value and decline in their relative attractiveness, they become candidates for sale. Other sell decisions may occur because of deterioration in the fundamentals that supported the initial investment. Automatic sales are initiated as position exposures approach diversification guidelines. Proceeds from sales are reinvested in companies that are more attractively valued based on the purchase disciplines.Ancora's fixed income strategy employs a top down approach with emphasis on sector allocation as their primary value added tool. Ancora is primarily an up-in-quality manager emphasizing higher rated corporate issues and higher classes of structured products. The firm attempts to add value in security selection by emphasizing either smaller issues or less liquid issues which tend to not trade as efficiently as do benchmarked/index eligible holdings. Ancora's research efforts in these names are internally generated and rely on various research sources including street generated research and other sources. The firm's taxable fixed income approach utilizes all the investment grade debt market sectors. The firm does not utilize non-investment grade securities in any of their managed accounts. Ancora restricts their fixed income buying to bonds rated A- or higher by one or more of the major rating agencies.Ancora Advisors is an activist firm and is included in the SharkWatch50 as one the 50 most prominent activist investors.
