Review Cambyses' Suitability, Risk Criteria, and Data Sources:  Cambyses determines whether a security should be in your portfolio by reviewing and analyzing nine suitability factors, eleven risk factors, and a spectrum of performance data (both fundamental and technical). When we are done, we review what other analysts have to say (their opinions rarely change our mind, but, once-in-a-while).

Because the data has become more available, we recently began evaluating companies' Environmental, Social, and Governance positions as well - Both their stated & reported policies and their adherence to them.  That part of our protocol is not yet mature.

Cambyses' Suitability and Risk Analysis - Applied: Since Tesla was one of the first modern entrants to the EAV arena, we think it is fitting that they be our exemplar when we demonstrate how our suitability analysis applies to real life operating data. 

Tesla is the "800 pound gorilla" of not only the EAV sector, but has evolved as a market capital leader and an innovation driver. It is, at present, one of the only pure-EAV play that has achieved international status.
