1QTR24 UO Matrix via Applied Indexation

 

In advance: 1QTR24 <U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation is currently available in multi-sheet format.

Featured Clean Tech thematic is derived from a combined Renewables/Diversified Industrials/Technology sector-themed overlay within Invesco’s publicly traded Clean Energy subindustry benchmark proxy ETF (ticker PBW), utilizing the modularity of business segment operations embedded within company revenue lines to generate effective Tier-2: Alpha and Alpha-Beta screens.

>> PBW total return: 3-mos. -17.7%, 1Q24 -21.9%, CY24 -34.9%; YTD24 performance dispersion +27.6%/-66.4% (041924).

>> PBW Fwd adj. PE=26.8 Beta=1.6 versus 24.0/1.5, 23.7/1.5 and 28.8/1.5 sequentially [40.0 limit; N/A totals 62.0% (v. 60.5%) based on portfolio weight and 63.4% of count (+2.6%), 9.8% on market capitalization (-1.3%); Large-cap 15.8% (-3.3%), Mid-cap 38.6% (-3.3%), Small-cap 45.5% (+6.5%)].

>> SPX 12-month Fwd PE=20.6/1Q24 v. 19.2/4Q23, 17.9/3Q23, 18.9/2Q23 (FactSet); CAPE 34.7 from 32.3/29.5/31.1, mean 17.1 (Shiller).

<U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation segments include Wind, Solar, Fuel Cells, Smart Grid, Water, LED, Biofuel, Automotive, Natural Gas, Storage and Aviation plus further classifications detailing component member assignments based on corporate business segment operations (12 segments, 55 classifications, 248 single and multi-listed component members; n=71).

The interrelationships among valuation drivers within cross-asset multi-factor portfolio strategies may best characterize (and link) corporate business segment operations to improve peer group analytics and valuation.

Successful trading strategies (fundamental, index-plus, systematic) and adaptive investable motifs (niche, thematic, megatrend) isolate Value in Growth, and Growth in Value, by aligning the prospective Alpha drivers directly associated with ecosystem composition and supply chain verticals.

At Venn’s intersection, sets and subsets of competing interests endure. The dynamic principles of business segment operations are three-fold: 1) multinational and Large-cap companies function as benchmark sector/industry/subindustry proxies based on scale (Alpha-Beta), 2) Small- and Mid-cap companies participate as competitive peers (Alpha) and, hence, acquisition candidates and 3) among subsets of 1) and 2) are companies provisioning multiple economic sectors, asset classes and geographies.

Alpha, Beta, Alpha-Beta


Efforting differentiated Alpha on top of Beta compression is advanced by peer group analytics and valuation, two fundamental tenets of the research process useful in capturing ranged performance dispersion among component members within designated benchmarks (cross-asset, multi-factor).

<U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation utilizes the modularity of corporate business segment operations to improve peer group analytics and valuation, refining standard index sector/industry/subindustry nomenclature assignments to better express relationships among variables and generate effective Tier-2: Alpha and Alpha-Beta screens for relative value assessments (strategies: conventional, index-plus, thematic, megatrend, long/short).

Current thematic is in the Clean Energy ETF space (ticker PBW: 12-mo. performance dispersion +166.0%/-89.0% 021424) as proxy for institutional portfolio managers, derived initially from a conceptual combined Renewables/Diversified Industrials/Technology sector-themed overlay; methodology is adaptive across economic sectors and asset classes (equity, corporate credit).

Resultant data sets are presented on a relative portfolio- versus market capitalization-weighted basis, providing multivariate performance attribution and capacity to isolate valuation drivers at distinct points of inflection (ref. past-positive forward looking indicators).

For proprietary methodology, note recent publications posted unrestricted online: <U/O> Tutorial_5: Performance Dispersion (Meta) and Data Refinement: Business Segment Operations (BSOs) along with slideshow tutorial <U/O> Matrix - Establishing Predictive Value: Applied Indexation, Hierarchical Data Sets and Competitive Market Information.

UO Tutorial_5: Performance Dispersion (Meta)

 

In advance: Absent in survey of competitor taxonomy presentations are corresponding comparative computations from hierarchical data sets, useful in lending quantitative support to adaptive cross-asset multi-factor portfolio strategies. Proprietary research suggests refinement of conventionally assigned component member sector/industry/subindustry nomenclature offers multivariate performance attribution and isolates valuation drivers at distinct points of inflection.

Active portfolio managers benefit from efforts to exploit performance dispersion within a designated benchmark or investment universe. In the Clean Energy space for example, analysis of recent subindustry outperformance during an underperforming 2023 reveals component member performance dispersion parameters ranged from +245.5% to -86.7% (benchmark proxy ticker PBW: +16.7% 1-mo, -0.9% 3-mos, -17.9% YTD23 as of 122623). To be sure, outperformance realizations in efficient markets demand enhanced research complements.

Incorporating a two-step protocol, first a Renewables/Diversified Industrials/Technology sector-themed overlay within the Clean Energy thematic then utilizing the modularity of business segment operations embedded within component member company revenue lines to link, <U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation introduces data sets of past-positive forward looking quantitative indicators (inversions) on a relative portfolio- versus market capitalization-weighted basis (12 segments, 63 classifications, 270 single and multi-listed component members, n=77 as of 093023).

The concepts of Venn intuitively improve peer group analytics and valuation; w/r/t benchmark analysis disaggregating composite data is a means to generate effective Tier-2: Alpha and Alpha-Beta screens, levering index/proxy characteristics to convey period-cyclic narratives based on fundamental niche economic variables and corporate catalysts.

<U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation provides patterned inversions (depth and degree), in tandem with price or spread action, to both characterize ecosystem and supply chain vertical dynamics as well as advance relative value assessments across economic sectors and asset classes. Practical template evaluations include constituency performance dispersion against: 1) the fund itself, 2) prevalent indexes, 3) niche thematic proxies, 4) capitalization and style benchmarks, 5) capital structure alternatives and 6) factor-based pairings.

Data Refinement (Business Segment Operations - BSOs)


In advance: Refinement of data inputs intuitively improves peer group analytics and valuation, even within a finite investment universe (index, proxy, asset class). Stochastic opportunities persist in Tier 2: Alpha and Alpha-Beta screens to exploit capital market inefficiencies (e.g. sector/industry/subindustry nomenclature) patterned sequentially at distinct points of inflection.

Asserting the premise, thematically, of a Clean Tech motif derived from a combined Renewables/Diversified Industrials/Technology sector-themed overlay requires only a small allowance. In our example, we assign Invesco’s WilderHill Clean Energy ETF as the benchmark proxy/index to demonstrate an actively managed absolute return portfolio strategy borne from levering a prevalent niche benchmark construct against unconstrained ranged performance dispersion among differentiated growth rates—individually and collectively.

Separately, in suggested independent parallel research, note common limitations in conventional fund reporting (six sector structure) and third-party data presentation (i.e. lithium recycling as Waste Management, etc.).

To begin an iterative process:

1) Revisit tenets of Venn in tandem with adaptive cross-asset multi-factor portfolio strategies: a) multinational and Large-cap companies function as benchmark sector/industry/subindustry proxies based on scale (Alpha-Beta), b) Small- and Mid-cap companies participate as competitive peers (Alpha) and, hence, acquisition candidates and c) among subsets of a) and b) are companies provisioning multiple economic sectors, asset classes and geographies.

2) Deconstruct company revenue lines of component members into business segment operations (BSOs) in order to more descriptively characterize ecosystem composition and supply chain vertical dynamics; link BSOs in <U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation format.

3) Compute variances of component member market capitalization relative to respective portfolio position weight per segment/classification based on BSOs; chart, ladder in time series.

4) Rerun traditional screens, rank.

5) Complete Tier 3: Fundamental Analysis to assess company-specific performance (cash flow, growth, profitability) and relative value.

PBW total return: 2023YTD -14.3%, 3-mos. -16.3%, 12-mos. -39.2%; YTD performance dispersion +194.7%/-80.1% (092223 am).

<U/O> Matrix via Applied Indexation segments include Wind, Solar, Fuel Cells, Smart Grid, Water, LED, Biofuel, Automotive, Natural Gas, Storage and Aviation plus further classifications detailing component member assignments based on corporate business segment operations (12 segments, 62 classifications, 256 single and multi-listed component members; n=75 as of 063023); next scheduled update 101023.

UO Matrix via Applied Indexation (Benchmark Analysis 1.0)

 

In advance: recently reported Clean Tech thematically segmented ETFs indexed price returns charted by a major third party data provider usefully demonstrate performance on an equal weighted price basis (Automotive, Wind, Solar, Battery, Hydrogen) though unfortunately excludes individual component member (stock) performance contributors over +50.0%, and also presents an only standard broad equity means to establish relative performance (S&P 500) as opposed to adopting a direct composite measure (e.g. Clean Tech benchmark ETF - PBW).

w/r/t benchmark analysis, the opportunity cost for institutional players is illustrated by performance dispersion among Clean Tech index proxy PBW component members. Specifically, PBW constituent total returns range from +209.1%/-89.1% (YTD as of 082523) with a significant number (n=10/75; 13.3%) above the +50.0% segment threshold (n=9; 12.0% are below -50.0%).

The goal for portfolio managers of course is to realize incremental (or decremental) outperformance in up (or down) markets thru fundamental research and security selection against a clearly defined benchmark index—first order analysis, the long and short of the matter—irrespective of arbitrary/constrained chart fit distortions or in deference to favorable macro or Beta total return comparables (SPY: +16.5% YTD, -3.3% 1-mo, +5.1% 3-mos, +10.0% 12-mos; PBW: -6.4% YTD, -15.4% 1-mo, -1.6% 3-mos, -39.8% 12-mos).

At times, when Big Data obfuscates or complementary portfolio positioning is prioritized, a redetermination of the research process may likely improve peer group analytics and valuation; an opportunity to isolate and capture differentiated growth rates within/among companies across economic sectors and asset classes, thematic or otherwise. In the example highlighted below, we advocate an alternative methodology for Tier-2: Alpha and Alpha-Beta screening (strategies: index-plus, niche, thematic, megatrend, factor-based, long/short).

<U/O> Matrix - Establishing Predictive Value: Applied Indexation, Hierarchical Data Sets and Competitive Market Information is an intuitive slideshow tutorial derived from a combined Renewables/Diversified Industrials/Technology sector-themed overlay within PBW, utilizing the modularity of corporate business segment operations embedded in company revenue lines to refine conventionally assigned sector/industry/subindustry nomenclature on a portfolio-weighted basis [ref: EPV (Tutorial) link at www.universalorbit.com].
