Blumeyer Investment Partners commits to a disciplined investment philosophy of looking for long-term undervalued financial securities, as well as capitalizing on high-percentage growth opportunities. If BIP was only a value firm, we would miss out on the current trends and economic bubbles. However, if BIP only worked to identify and capitalize on growth financial securities, the firm would only be chasing shiny objects. Analogous to a professional tennis player's shot selection and court positioning on the tennis court, our firm is disciplined in understanding which investment to take on with the capital given to us in relation to our risk tolerance.
One key reason why BIP doesn't just take on a value investing philosophy is that in these times of uncertainty, it's difficult to know how long a trend will last. COVID has certainly proven that politics can sway and create tortuous situations for businesses, especially the ones that have fought so hard to hang on and to "change with the times". Thus, it's imperative to remain stalwart with the finance fundamentals, but to realize that the economic bubbles, recessions, and booms will occur and might dissipate rapidly or stay for years at a time.
