We Can't know the future

We also focus on liquidity in an attempt to make sure that if the economy hits a rough patch that a company will be around to continue to grow once the economy improves.  This also applies at the security level where we look to minimize the potential for capital loss. 

We build portfolios one security at a time and compare risk/reward of each security

Each security is converted to an expected cash flow yield and cash flows are subjected to various macro scenarios to determine potential volatility.
