Disclaimer
This presentation is for informational purposes and is not an offer to sell. Any investment involves significant risks, and
past market conditions may not resemble future market conditions.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE
DESCRIBED BELOW. THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT, DO NOT
INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK OR REFLECT ACTUAL TRADING BY ANY ACCOUNT UNDER ACTUAL MARKET
CONDITIONS AND THEREFORE DO NOT REFLECT THE IMPACT THAT ECONOMIC AND MARKET FACTORS
MAY HAVE HAD ON THE ADVISORS INVESTMENT DECISIONS FOR THAT ACCOUNT. NO
REPRESENTATION IS MADE THAT CIMI'S PERFORMANCE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME AS SUCH
SIMULATED HAD CIMI BEEN IN EXISTENCE DURING SUCH TIME. ANOTHER LIMITATION IS THAT
INVESTMENT DECISIONS REFLECTED IN THE SIMULATED RESULTS CANNOT COMPLETELY ACCOUNT
FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK ON THE MANNER IN WHICH AN ACCOUNT WOULD HAVE BEEN
MANAGED. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR
TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO AFFECT
ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
HYPOTHETICAL RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RECORD SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED. THE SIMULATED
RESULTS DO NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT ENHANCEMENTS THAT MAY BE MADE TO THE PROPRIETARY
COMPUTER MODELS OVER TIME. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKET
IN GENERAL, OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE
FULLY BE ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL SIMULATED PERFORMANCE
RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. ALL RESULTS ARE
GROSS OF ALL TRADING AND MANAGEMENT FEES

Does this work with sectors?

Would an ensemble model of value
factors work better?

What about adding momentum,
trend, or other factors?

Buffett
When companies with outstanding
businesses and comfortable financial positions
find their shares selling far below intrinsic
value in the marketplace, no alternative action
can benefit shareholders as surely as
repurchases.
