Germantown, WI - January 1, 2018
DOMO Nets Over 40% for Second Straight Year and Doubles Assets Under Management
DOMO Capital Management, LLC ("DOMO") reports another stellar year of returns. DOMO's Concentrated Value composite finishes 2017 with a gross return of 44.44% and a net return of 41.57% versus a return of 21.83% for the S&P 500 Total Return Index. In 2016, the DOMO Concentrated Value composite had a net return of 47.43%.
DOMO doubled total assets under management from $3.9M at the end of 2016 to $7.8M at the end of 2017.
From Inception (10/8/2008) through 2017 DOMO now has an annualized gross return of 20.43% and an annualized net return of 18.94% versus an annualized return of 13.73% for the S&P 500 Total Return Index. A
$100,000 investment at inception would have been worth over $495,000 at the end of 2017.
DOMO came to the early conclusion in 2017 that the Republican tax bill would eventually become law. Using this framework, DOMO focused on sectors that would benefit the most from passage of the reform bill. This led DOMO to the undervalued retail sector that had been beaten up by the belief that Amazon would destroy all of the competition. Uncertainty surrounding the tax bill combined with uncertainty surrounding the future of retailers resulted in incredible opportunities in solid, financially stable retailers with business models that DOMO believed could withstand Amazon.
DOMO does not believe that market has priced in the full benefits of the tax reform bill and continues to see strong investment opportunities in 2018 for selective stocks and sectors rather than the market as a whole.
