Does reading headlines create alpha?

Livewire Exclusive

Livewire Markets

There are always a few bearish big picture themes in the news for investors to worry about. But how much alpha is actually on the table in reacting to them? In our recent chat, Lee Rosenbaum, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, Loomis Sayles, explains how his fund ignores the headlines, and sticks to their process instead.

He calls these themes, ‘Rolling Blackouts’, citing global trade, Brexit, Korean tensions, and Crimea as recent examples. While macro funds might trade these events, Loomis Sayles seeks to generate their results from their ‘disciplined and repeatable process of identifying  businesses that have these three alpha drivers of quality, intrinsic value growth and valuation’. We hear more about their laser-focused approach in this short video.
