BALANCED PORTFOLIO

BALANCED PORTFOLIO


CCM Investment Manager Profile

At CCM Investment Advisers, we believe a disciplined total portfolio management system that identifies relative value among asset classes, as well as individual securities, will provide consistently superior investment performance. Our philosophy dictates that we manage risk first. Through the management of risk we ascertain value, which ultimately drives performance. Our investment philosophy is based on the active management of the three basic decisions of portfolio management: asset allocation, security selection and timing.

Traditionally, other portfolio

managers actively manage only the second two parts of the investment process: selection and timing. However, at CCM, we believe in order to minimize risk and maximize the total return of a portfolio consistent with each client's investment objectives, it is necessary to actively manage all three aspects of the investment process.

In a dynamic and disciplined portfolio management system, the decision making process is a sequence of events that begins with the asset allocation decision (asset mix). For most asset managers the decision making process ends with selection and timing. If considered at all, asset allocation is performed in a static and absolute context where a typical growth portfolio maintains a constant 60% stock/ 40% bond asset mix. In summary, our portfolio management system constantly compares the relative value of stocks, bonds and money market alternatives. Our system disciplines the portfolio manager to shift funds from overvalued assets to undervalued assets within a timely, logical and unbiased framework.

The fallacy of the “traditional” approach of maintaining a fixed asset mix has been that regardless of the selection skills of managers and how well they managed a particular class of assets, they were all at the mercy of the performance of that particular market alternative. Therefore, with a significant fixed percentage of portfolio assets invested in a poorly performing asset class, portfolio performance suffered greatly. The market “crash” of 1987 dramatically illustrated this point.

The performance we have achieved using our portfolio management system has convinced us that the “traditional” approach to asset management is outdated and far less than optimal in volatile and unpredictable financial markets. The asset management alternative we offer is a system of proven value with the capability and flexibility to position portfolio assets among stocks, bonds and money market investments in a disciplined and timely manner. Designed to optimize portfolio return consistent with each client’s risk tolerance, CCM’s investment management system is a balanced approach to the maximization of a client’s wealth.

  

BALANCED PORTFOLIO

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY


CCM Investment Manager Profile

CCM’s asset allocation system is driven by the expected returns for the stock and bond markets. As the high-risk asset class, investors demand higher returns for stocks, and as such, their expected return generally exceeds that of bonds. The difference between the two returns is known as the expected return spread. Since 1973, the actual return spread has averaged 282 basis points. Over the course of the economic cycle, however, inefficient behavior on the behalf of investors creates opportunities to take advantage of relative mispricing between the two asset classes. Accordingly, CCM makes gradual shifts in our clients’ asset allocations based on our ongoing assessment of prevailing market conditions. The chart (left) presents historical expected returns from our asset allocation system. The model is very effective at directing the manager towards undervalued asset classes during periods of significant divergence from the norm (+/- one standard deviation). From an historical perspective, note the signals provided by the model prior to the market “crash” in 1987, the tech bubble in 1999, and the buying opportunity in 2002.

EXPECTED RETURN: STOCKS VERSUS BONDS

Since 1973 there have been thirty-nine quarters where the expected return spread has diverged from the average by greater than one standard deviation. These periods of “high confidence” were typically validated by the corresponding actual return RELATIVE PERFORMANCE: STOCKS MINUS BONDS spread from the stock and bond markets. As can be seen in the chart (right), stocks outperformed bonds by an average of 8.3% in the year following a period of stock undervaluation. Stocks outperformed bonds by an average of 10.5% over the following two years as well. When stocks were overvalued, they only outperformed bonds by an average of 1.6%. CCM’s proprietary asset allocation system is a time-tested, proven framework for deriving the proper asset mix consistent with each client’s tolerance for risk. CCM investment managers are disciplined in the asset allocation decision process, and clients are protected from the dysfunctional and costly “market timing” approach of many managers.

ASSET ALLOCATION SYSTEM


CCM Investment Manager Profile

CCM Investment Advisers manages every client account as a separate portfolio based on that client’s investment objectives. Most clients’ objectives place them into one of the three broadly defined balanced portfolio categories. However, we also manage equity, fixed income and money market portfolios. Since each portfolio is tailored to the client’s specific objectives, some portfolios may be a combination of approaches.

Core Balanced Portfolio: This balanced approach is designed to generate returns significantly in excess of the rate of inflation over the longer term, but will conversely incur substantial short term risk to invested capital. Investment performance should be judged over a three to five year time horizon versus a typical conservative balanced (50% stocks/50% bonds) portfolio. A Core Balanced Plus option is also available which offers greater stock exposure. Investment performance should be judged versus a typical balanced (60% stocks/40% bonds) portfolio. Moderate Risk Balanced Portfolio: This balanced approach to investing is designed to generate returns over an intermediate time period that exceed the rate of inflation, but will conversely incur some short term risk to invested capital. Investment performance should be judged over a two to three year time horizon versus a balanced portfolio of 40% stocks/40% bonds/20% money markets. Low Risk Balanced Portfolio: This portfolio is designed to generate stabilized rates of return on an annualized basis with low risk to invested capital. Returns over a one to two year period should exceed available money market returns, and provide some offset to inflation. Time horizon is one to two years. Performance should be compared to a portfolio of 20% stocks/40% bonds/40% money markets.

CCM Investment Manager Profile

A sample Core Balanced Portfolio is displayed on the following pages. The sample is an actual portfolio managed by CCM Investment Advisers. CCM Balanced portfolios employ the same equity and fixed income selection processes as our single asset class portfolios. Additionally, our time-tested asset allocation model re-computes each portfolio’s optimal asset mix at least monthly.

Fowler Cary, President of CCM, developed the proprietary asset allocation model in the late 1970’s and has been using it in the management of balanced portfolios since 1981. The model is designed to maximize return and minimize risk for each client, subject to their investment objectives, risk tolerances and the expected returns and volatility of the capital markets. Preservation of principal is a major objective of our process. Our balanced portfolios can be customized to individual client parameters within our process.

Representative clients are chosen based on portfolio size and conformity to CCM investment styles. They are clients who have agreed to serve as references for CCM Investment Advisers, LLC. Past performance of these accounts should not be considered a guarantee of future performance. Sample portfolio is provided as supplemental information.

FIXED INCOME PORTFOLIO

FIXED INCOME PORTFOLIO


CCM Investment Manager Profile

Our fixed income selection process is an extension of the relative value philosophy of our investment management system. Our philosophy dictates that we manage risk first. Through the management of risk we ascertain value, which ultimately drives performance. We measure the potential return (both income and change in market value) of a fixed income investment against the market and credit risks associated with this type of investment. Our objective is to produce superior returns over the long term, consistent with our philosophy of preservation of principal.

Since interest rates are a reflection of business cycle conditions and inflation expectations, fixed income selection begins with the formulation of our macro-economic forecast. The economic forecast includes our expectations for changes in interest rates and the yield curve. The portfolio’s target duration (a measure of bond volatility) is then determined based on these expectations and the client’s investment policy statement. Unlike most managers, however, our forecasts are updated at least monthly. This provides us the flexibility to make mid-course corrections in duration, rather than dramatic shifts in maturities or between bonds and cash.

Once target duration has been established for each fixed income approach, the maturity structure appropriate for each client’s risk tolerance is determined to maximize returns within those risk parameters. Based on anticipated shifts in the yield curve, we implement active bond management strategies to appropriately weight the maturities in the portfolio. Maturity configurations can take the form of laddered, bell or barbell shaped maturity schedules.

Having determined portfolio duration and maturity targets, the individual security selection process begins with relative value analysis. This involves the evaluation of current market sector spreads, quality spreads, and specific security factors. Sector and quality spreads are monitored versus long term averages after considering business cycle and specific industry conditions. Default and maturity premiums are tracked and analyzed on an ongoing basis. The credit analysis process in the corporate and municipal sectors consists of fundamental research utilizing public filings with the SEC and is supplemented by credit research from Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s and other traditional bond rating firms.

We actively manage our fixed income portfolios to take advantage of inefficiencies within the different sectors of the fixed income markets. Implementation of these strategies in identifying undervalued bonds adds incremental return to the original portfolio duration decision. Emphasis is placed on quality, diversification, liquidity and call protection.

FIXED INCOME INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY


CCM Investment Manager Profile

The following pages describe a sample Fixed Income Portfolio. The sample is an actual portfolio managed by CCM Investment Advisers.

The actual composition of a fixed income portfolio managed by CCM is quite dynamic over time. Sector allocations between Government and Corporate bonds are changed based upon the prevailing yield spread. More importantly, the duration and convexity of the portfolio are actively managed to take advantage of a constantly changing interest rate environment.

Representative clients are chosen based on portfolio size and conformity to CCM investment styles. They are clients who have agreed to serve as references for CCM Investment Advisers, LLC. Past performance of these accounts should not be considered a guarantee of future performance. sample portfolio is provided as supplemental information.

CCM Investment Manager Profile

The CCM stock selection process is an extension of the relative value philosophy prevalent in our investment management system. The stock market is rife with numerous inefficiencies caused by the inability of investors to rationally and systematically process relevant information. CCM exploits this potential by utilizing a relative value philosophy based on quantitative and qualitative processes to develop an equity portfolio that is designed to provide relative out-performance with less risk than the relevant benchmark, the Standard and Poors’ 500 stock index.

Investment managers are generally characterized as either “growth” or “value” oriented.

CCM EQUITY STYLE

Growth

managers typically pursue stocks characterized by high earnings growth or a high price to book ratio while value managers are often attracted to more stable securities with low price to earnings ratios and/or healthy dividend yields. Focusing on value in the absolute sense can have the effect of leading investors to areas of the market that are inexpensive, but which are so for good reason. The CCM process is concerned with valuation in a relative sense, that is, how securities compare to stocks of similar characteristics. Stocks are held

Data is from CCM’s 12/31/16 model equity portfolio. Capitalization points are based on each security’s relative market cap. Value/Core/Growth based on relative price/book ratio. CCM baseline is 75% large-cap/15% mid/10% small,

because they are inexpensive relative to their peers.

At CCM, we seek long-term relative value.

EQUITY INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY


CCM Investment Manager Profile

The security selection process begins with CCM’s proprietary Securities Valuation Model (SVM), a quantitative screen of the 1,500 securities in CCM’s research database. The SVM is a multi-factor model utilizing both “growth” and “value” inputs. Key inputs include: Normalized P/E:

the security’s price/earnings multiple adjusted for its historic price/earnings “channel”

Mispricing:

the difference between a stock’s expected return and its appropriate position on the Security Market Plane

Present Value Ratio: the present value of current or implied dividends Earnings Strength:

the consensus forecast earnings growth rate

Earnings Surprise:

the time-weighted change in consensus earnings forecasts

All rankings are computed relative to the security’s peers and compiled based on CCM’s proven formula to derive the security’s final SVM score. Those companies ranked in the upper three quintiles (top 60%) are considered to be buy or hold candidates, while those in the lowest two quintiles are sell candidates.

After a stock passes the screening process, it is analyzed on a fundamental basis by a member of the analyst team. Each analyst is responsible for the fundamental research of stocks in specific economic market sectors. The weekly Investment Policy Meeting is the primary forum for new information on stocks that are currently held, or are potential buy or sell candidates. Research tools include public information such as regular SEC financial reports, Wall Street firms’ research and reporting, and reports from third-party financial analysis services such as Applied Finance Group, Argus Research, and Morningstar.

Fundamental research is augmented with CCM’s Economic Forecast and Sector Studies, a monthly compilation and analysis of current economic conditions, as well as valuation divergences among the various industrial, valuation and capitalization sectors within the market. While the investment process is typically described as “bottom-up”, a more accurate depiction is a bottom-up approach with a clear view of the top. Without question, the economic cycle and prevailing interest rates have a profound effect on the equity market, and ignoring this critical input will have a profound effect on a portfolio’s risk and return characteristics.

SECURITY SELECTION PROCESS


CCM Investment Manager Profile

Ultimately, the equity selection process results in the structuring of broadly diversified stock portfolios (35 to 65 positions) across eleven distinct industry groups. The strategy is primarily large-cap, as defined by average market capitalization, although the investment policy does allow for up to approximately 30% of the portfolio to be invested in mid-cap ($1 to $5 billion) and small-cap positions (under $1 billion) under favorable market conditions.

CCM strives to provide excess absolute return while maintaining a risk profile that is less than the S&P 500. Portfolio risk is measured both in terms of volatility as compared to the equity market as well as correlation. Security-specific risk is managed with a 5% limit on an individual security’s representation in the portfolio. The strategy also controls for industry risk—large industry groups are over or underweighted by no more than 50% of their S&P 500 weighting. Smaller industry groups comprising less than 8% of the S&P 500 may be overweighted up to two times the S&P exposure, and may have no exposure under certain circumstances.

As long-term investors, portfolio turnover is relatively low, averaging 40% in most circumstances. Because all CCM portfolios are managed individually, the impact of taxation at the portfolio level can be considered. Although turnover is low, incidences will occur when prudent investment management will indicate that a short-term gain should be realized. CCM makes every effort to “wash” both short-term and long-term gains with corresponding losses when economically feasible.

CCM Investment Manager Profile

A sample Equity Portfolio is displayed on the following pages. The sample is an actual portfolio managed by CCM Investment Advisers. Please note the broad diversification across economic sectors, as well as among the individual securities. Portfolios of $1 million or less typically will have 35 to 50 positions, whereas portfolios larger than $1 million may have as many as 65 positions. Regardless of the portfolio size, the industry weightings will be very similar. Maximum weightings for each issuer are limited to 5% of portfolio value. Should securities appreciate above the maximum level, positions are re-balanced to meet portfolio standards. Sector allocations cannot deviate more than 50% from the corresponding sector weightings in the S&P 500 index. CCM equity portfolios are structured to have undervalued stocks with higher growth characteristics than the market, yet similar or lower volatility measures than the market.

Representative clients are chosen based on portfolio size and conformity to CCM investment styles. They are clients who have agreed to serve as references for CCM Investment Advisers, LLC. Past performance of these accounts should not be considered a guarantee of future performance Sample portfolio is provided as supplemental information.
