Program Description:
Dmitry Balyasny will be discussing the stock picking environment as we head into 2016. He will discuss the difference between taking market risk (Beta) and taking stock specific risk (Alpha). One focus has been generating good stock picking ideas on both the long and short sides of the portfolio. Part of this process involves identifying and attempting to hedge out key factors such as momentum, sub sectors, growth and value. Once you have stripped out the factor risk you are left with true stock specific risk, which can present good opportunities to focus on a company’s valuation and fundamentals.
