Connective Capital’s CC1 Beta Neutral strategy’s goal is to provide alpha returns, uncorrelated with market movements. CCM’s investment team has industry backgrounds and firsthand experience in the technology sector, which provides a special advantage in smaller market cap stocks which are misunderstood or whose end-markets are being disrupted. Our fundamental analysis and deep experience with hype-cycles enable us to identify behavioral mispricing very common in thematic growth stocks such as confirmation bias and price anchors. We find winners and losers from a technology and business model perspective and are thoughtful about timing and catalysts for entry and exit. Since January 2005, CC1 has delivered favorable returns in adverse market environments, including choppy and bear markets.
