What we do

There is no formulaic approach to evaluating an opportunity or situation. The concept behind macro ideas is “What if?” Global/Regional/national situations are assessed from a current to forward looking perspective.

If macro frames the situation, then the market allows one to turn a profit. Here the underlying question is always “So what?” There is little value in corporate analysis if it no trading recommendation can be created.

Each subject is taken on its own merits at a given point in time. Of course, the world turns, the background changes and targets are achieved opinion is free to alter.

To coin an old market adage, when it comes to the world, only uncertainty is certain. As for the market; prices move…they are not door numbers. This is our philosophy; we are not married to any investment position.

Stephen Pope is a well regarded and highly sought spokesman regularly appearing in the financial media and delivering presentations to international conferences.
