Spencer described the characteristics of a successful theme and also outlined how we use investment research to narrow down the over 250,000 publicly traded securities to the 40 or 50 stocks that go into client investment portfolios. “Before we make an investment in any individual company, there’s a long dynamic process that precedes that decision.”
