6:10 – 6:15 Chapter Business – Mike Carty, Chapter President

6:15 – 6:55  – “A Research Study – Stock Returns on Customer Satisfaction Do Beat the Market: Gauging the Effect of a Marketing Intangible” – Dr. Forrest V. Morgeson III, Director of Research and Global CSI Manager and Kevin Quigg, Chief Strategist, ACSI Funds

A debate about whether firms with superior customer satisfaction earn superior stock returns has been persistent in the literature. Using 15 years of audited returns, the authors find convincing empirical evidence that stock returns on customer satisfaction do beat the market. The recorded cumulative returns were 518% over the years studied (2000–2014), compared with a 31% increase for the S&P 500. Similar results using back-tested instead of real returns were found in the United Kingdom. The effect of customer satisfaction on stock price is, at least in part, channeled through earnings surprises. Consistent with theory, customer satisfaction has an effect on earnings themselves. In addition, the authors examine the effect of stock returns from earnings on stock returns from customer satisfaction. If earnings returns are included among the risk factors in the asset pricing model, the earnings variable partially mitigates the returns on customer satisfaction. Because of the long time series, it is also possible to examine time periods when customer satisfaction returns were below market. The reversal of the general trend largely resulted from short-term market idiosyncrasies with little or no support from fundamentals. Such irregularities have been infrequent and eventually self-correcting. The authors provide reasons why irregularities may occur from time to time.

6:55 – 7:10     Refreshment and Networking Break

7:10 – 7:55  –  “Smart Beta Meets Big Data” – Rick Davis,  President & CEO, Consumer Metrics Institute

Peter Lynch used consumer focus groups and the concept of “brand loyalty” as a key equity selection criteria while managing the Magellan Fund at Fidelity Investments from 1977 to 1990. During that time the average annual return experienced by Magellan’s shareholders was over 29%.

This presentation will explore ways to adapt Peter’s idea for the 21st Century by leveraging “Big Data” into history’s largest and most timely “brand loyalty” focus group.

Richard DavisRichard C. Davis, President & CEO, Consumer Metrics Institute, Inc.

The Consumer Metrics Institute grew out of Mr. Davis’ frustration with the lack of timeliness and poor quality of information available to investors about the consumer economy in the United States.
Mr. Davis’ interest in the development of technologies that empower investors started over 30 years ago. One consistent strategy utilized by Mr. Davis during his entire career has been to push the data collection process as far up-stream as possible, developing technologies that capture critical data as close to the original source as conceivable. The internet has finally made the capture of vast amounts of data about consumer economic activities on a real-time basis practical. Mr. Davis created the Consumer Metrics Institute to acquire and channel that information to investors in a timely manner.  Under Mr. Davis’ direction the Consumer Metrics Institute has focused on turning upstream economic data into information that an investor can use to assess the scope of the systemic risks associated with the equity markets. “We’ve developed our indexes to help investors identify the possible severity of the economic events that are unfolding in front of them”, Mr. Davis says.
Mr. Davis graduated from college with a B.S. Cum Laude in Physics. Before founding the Consumer Metrics Institute, he held a number of positions, including founding principal of a NASD broker/dealer and registered investment advisor, and senior IT management positions with Fortune 500 firms. He took a 5 year non-profit sabbatical, which included a stint as the CEO of an American orchestra.
