  • “The US Stock market is at risk of P/E deflation. Just look at the relationship between CPI and the earnings yield (inverse of P/E) of the S&P 500 Index over the last seven decades.” – @crescatkevin

  • “The US Treasury just issued over $1 trillion worth of bonds and notes just in the last 4 months. Largest amount for such a period of time ever recorded in history.  Meanwhile, the Fed is talking about tapering….. Good luck with that.” – @TaviCosta

  • “How’s no one talking about this? The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China with $5.24T in assets is in free fall. This is the largest bank in the world. Every other major Chinese bank looks just as dismal. Hard to believe something more systemic isn’t going on.” – @TaviCosta

Bloomberg News, eVestment, and Capital Finance International Award Disclosure
Bloomberg and eVestment peer analysis and selection criteria is based on returns. The Bloomberg return table was compiled from people familiar, investor letters and other Bloomberg News reporting. The report is written by editor Melissa Karsh of Bloomberg News to acknowledge returns for month and year to date. Crescat Capital did not submit payment, outside of our employees’ Bloomberg and eVestment subscriptions, for consideration or placement in these rankings. Our ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience since it reflects the returns of a hypothetical, full fee-paying investor who has invested since inception. Ranking is not indicative of future performance. The displayed table is based on US submissions only and the number of submissions varies on a week-by-week basis. Crescat reports performance estimates and finalized numbers to Bloomberg and eVestment as they are released and displays both favorable and unfavorable months at the discretion of the Bloomberg News team. Crescat Capital is not affiliated with Bloomberg News.

In granting an award, some of the more important factors taken into consideration are risk management, performance and value creation, quality and permanency of investment team, investment strategy, analytics and research, innovation, client service, and strength of nominations. CFI readers, subscribers and staff working for organizations that contribute and support CFI’s publication voted for Crescat to be nominated. Then, CFI’s judging panel, using the factors above, granted Crescat the award. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
