10 SP\QC 9-04 F Overconfidence Bias in International Stock Prices, The Journal of Portfolio Management, (Winter 2003) Compelling Research Recognized by Industry Publications F Behavioral Bias, Valuation and Active Management, Financial Analysts Journal, Vol 55 (July/August 1999) F News, Not Trading Volume, Builds Momentum, Financial Analysts Journal, (March/April 2003) F Enhanced Equity Indexers: Common Traits and Surprising Differences, Journal of Investment Management, (September 2003)
11 SP\QC 9-04 Conceptual Framework F Value of companies with no growth opportunities depends on normalized earnings. P =E/k F Value of rapidly growing companies depends primarily on expectations of future growth. P =E/k + profitable growth Valuation Theory Shows Where to Find Opportunities P = Stock Price E = Normalized Earnings Per Share k = Equity Discount Rate
12 SP\QC 9-04 Slow Growth Stocks Valuation Works Best for Slowly Growing Companies … Quarterly Excess Returns* Fast Growth Stocks P/E Quarterly payoff to stocks grouped by P/E and Long-Term EPS Growth P/E * Based on the difference between each group of stocks returns and the average of all stocks returns.

13 SP\QC 9-04 Slow Growth Stocks … While News Is More Important for Rapidly Growing Companies Fast Growth Stocks Quarterly payoff to stocks grouped by Estimate Revisions and Long-Term EPS Growth Negative Revisions Positive Revisions Neutral Revisions Negative Revisions Positive Revisions Neutral Revisions Quarterly Excess Returns* * Based on the difference between each group of stocks returns and the average of all stocks returns.

Classify Stocks Calculate Expected Return Construct Portfolio STEPInputsOutputs Nightly download of data for approximately 3,000 US stocks Internally built optimizer F Overweight high expected return stocks F Limits exposure to other risks Stocks classified by growth rate into categories Expected return for each stock and portfolio, calculated daily Periodically rebalance each portfolio to reflect risk/reward objectives Models for each category F Slow growth: emphasize valuation F Fast growth: emphasize news
