About The Deep Value Index (DEEPI)

The Deep Value Index identifies undervalued stocks using The Acquirer’s Multiple®.

The Index is composed of the 100 most undervalued, fundamentally strong stocks listed in the US.

Constituent stocks are selected from the smallest 75% of all stocks by number (equivalent to a market cap smaller than about $2.5 billion).

How it works

Step 1.

The Index identifies potentially undervalued stocks using The Acquirer’s Multiple®.

The initial universe of stocks is valued holistically—assets, earnings, and cash flows are examined—to understand the economic reality of each stock. Each stock is ranked on the basis of such valuation.

Potential components are further evaluated using statistical measures of fraudearnings manipulation, and financial distress.

Step 2.

Each potential component is examined for a margin of safety in three ways:

(a) a wide discount to a conservative valuation,

(b) a strong, liquid balance sheet, and

(c) a robust business capable of generating free cash flows.

Step 3.

Finally, a forensic-accounting due diligence review of each of the remaining potential components’ financial statements, particularly the notes and management’s discussion and analysis, is undertaken.

The Index is formed from the components passing each stage. Each position will be weighted to about 1% of the Index value.

The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
