18IT’S NOT ABOUT COUNTRY ALLOCATION BUT OUR BEST 25 BUSINESS IDEAS Flexible all-cap go-anywhere mandatesAvoid areas of high valuation risk; the converse is also trueFewer companies to follow = depth of research/competitive analysis = conviction in our choicesHigh deviation from index results in outperformanceDisciplined BUY/SELL process – replace our least favourite idea with our newest ideaK.J. Martijn Cremers and Antti Petajisto of the Yale School of Management have conducted primary research into active management and defined active share. Cremers and Petajisto studied portfolios from 1980 through 2003, and discovered that those displaying the greatest active share tended to outperform their relevant indexesSimilarly, a 2008 study titled "Best Ideas" by Randolph Cohen at the Harvard Business School, Christopher Polk at the London School of Economics, and Bernhard Silli at Goldman Sachs defends high-conviction portfolios. The authors studied managers' favorite stocks and showed that, in fact, those stocks outperformed funds' appropriate indexes.Although Morningstar analysts don't rely heavily on active share when we debate and choose our Analyst Picks, our picks confirm the thesis that high active share is highly correlated with good performance.
