Career History
President
Prior - 2007

Wood Asset Management's (WAM) Core Equity Strategy focuses on revenue and earnings growth. They invest primarily in mid- and large-cap stocks that are listed in the S&P 500. The portfolio holds both growth and value stocks. Portfolios may be weighted toward either style, depending upon market conditions. The strategy seeks to generate consistent, competitive results relative to the S&P 500. WAM performs a top-down/macro-risk assessment of each market sector to determine broad sector under- and over-weights for the portfolio. They then perform a comprehensive examination of company balance sheets and a review of company fundamentals. WAM's analysis focuses on identifying companies with strong balance sheets and superior revenue/earnings prospects relative to their peers. They focus on investments in companies that are market leaders in their industries. WAM does not sell a stock just because it falls by a certain percentage. They may sell if the position falls 20% from its peak or 15% from the purchase point, there is a change in the original rationale for purchase of the security, there is a change in company management, there are changes in the firm's expectations regarding revenue or earnings, the company experiences a breakdown in technical or sector support or there is deterioration in the company's fundamentals, products or services.WAM's Relative Value Strategy focuses on large-cap value. This portfolio consists of large-cap stocks that offer exposure to all sectors. The firm seeks competitive returns, reduced volatility and a measure of downside protection. They also seek to generate consistent, competitive results relative to the Russell 1000 Value Index, but with lower levels of volatility. WAM employs a top-down macro and sector assessment to identify opportunities on the basis of relevant cycles and trends. They perform a comprehensive examination of balance sheets and a review of company fundamentals. WAM then identifies undervalued companies using fundamental and qualitative criteria that reveal high-quality stocks with strong balance sheets, good prospects for revenue and earnings growth, strong management teams and growing cash dividends. The firm establishes sell-price targets for each individual security. They may sell a stock when they observe loss of management focus or when the inability to execute a business plan is demonstrated. WAM trims over-weighted positions and remains open to more attractive investment opportunities.The firm's Advanced Strategies Group offers a passive asset allocation approach to create flexible portfolios with specified risk and return targets. The Advanced Strategies Group covers equities (by region, sector, size and style), fixed- income, currencies and commodities.Though not limited by sector, the firm tends to invest in the stocks of US mid- and large cap companies in the finance, energy minerals and health technology sectors. WAM maintains a medium turnover rate.
