William Lee Tedford, Jr., an Executive Vice President of Stephens Inc. and Chairman of the Fixed Income Management Committee and Portfolio Manager of SCM, has developed and uses a proprietary model designed to forecast inflation. The model reflects past and historical relationships of inflation to monetary base and oil prices. The future behavior of inflation is influenced by many factors (many of which are themselves unpredictable) and will not necessarily continue to follow historical patterns. The model, by itself, cannot guide an investor as to what securities should be bought or sold nor as to when to buy or sell.
