Why? Stock prices may or may not reflect the underlying fundamentals of companies. Stock prices may or may not behave as experts and analysts forecast. Stock prices may or may not be correlated to any possible rationale outlook. That’s the tough reality of stock markets and that is why still too many active managers underperform the relevant benchmark.
Therefore an unbiased, objective, disciplined “reality check” about the “actual trends“ is critical to deliver superior performance on a consistent basis.
Disregarding real trends and dismissing the importance of respecting price action is a recipe to underperformance for many managers.
Markets are getting more complex and trends are governed by the money flow driven a variety of factors, that fundamental data alone cannot capture.
Adding a layer of intelligent “trend valuation” is a rock-solid choice, as it validates ideas and provides an extra level of quality and risk control that has a direct impact on investment performance.
It is so obvious. If you want to capture the best opportunities and profit from trends, start evaluating the actual price developments.
