  • There can be major disconnects between a company's bond and stock valuations, and bonds are leading indicators for the corresponding stocks.
  • These valuation disconnects exist due to differences between bond and stock analysis metrics.
  • This principle is supported both behaviorally (by real market dynamics) as well as mathematically (by theoretical structure models derived from contingent claims analysis).
  • We exploit such differences to identify undervalued opportunities for a high conviction stock portfolio.
