There are as many opinions on what the future holds as there are investment managers and the primary reason for this is the difference in how data is interpreted.
With this in mind, it’s clear that investor psychology and emotion is at the heart of the pricing of all tradable assets. What is intriguing is that bullishness (optimism) or bearishness (pessimism) is often self-fulfilling, but almost always erroneous at the extremes of either meaning that when everyone is bullish on a particular asset, the consensus is almost always wrong.
Most people are not emotionally wired to be successful investors. Any historical analysis of markets demonstrates that without fail, investors always chase what has performed well in the recent past and typically drive markets to valuation excesses. This results in many becoming drawn in at or near the top and unceremoniously dumped at the bottom, losing their shirts in the process.
At Kangyo Yokohama Securities, we believe that over a medium-long-term investment horizon of, say, 7 to 10 years, valuation, or the price paid for an asset is the single most important element in whether or not an investor is successful. Unfortunately, investors will rarely allow themselves or their investment managers a time horizon of that duration in which to be proven correct. Therefore, the skill of investment management is to exercise judgment and experience to pilot the course effectively while attempting to reduce volatility, manage risk and correctly determine the weighting of different asset classes.
Kangyo Yokohama Securities believes that the long-term, value investing and the research and analysis we diligently carry out today will set the foundations for the market-beating returns our clients earn tomorrow.
