Bhirud Associates Provides Equity Strategy Research Services for Institutional Clients


Our primary focus is on publishing in-depth studies on topics of importance to equity investors, such as equity valuations (in broad terms), asset allocation issues, or the correlation of various fundamentals and economic indicators to stock prices.  In addition, we focus on uncovering anomalies of importance to equity investors, such as the depressed dividend payout ratio in the current cycle, high corporate profitability in the current cycle, or the relative valuation of equities vs. Treasury yields.  We send out frequent emails on these topics on a regular basis.  Emails include a weekly chart book, which has an extensive collection of charts that should be useful to equity investors in determining their investment strategy.  Examples include a chart of normalized dividend payout ratio for SPX, a chart of P/E multiples and CPI, and a chart of dividend yield for SPX and long-term Treasuries.  Some of the charts go back to 1926. 


Asset Management Services


Bhirud Associates offers asset management services, specializing in managing diversified equity portfolios.  The primary focus is on selecting stocks from the S&P 500 index universe, using our proprietary multi-factor model that ranks stocks in order of attractiveness based on dividend yield and dividend growth.  We emphasize stocks that have accelerating dividend growth relative to the 500 stocks in the S&P 500 index universe.
