Stock Trading Models
We have constructed four high returning quantitative trading models (more are on the way!) which select high quality companies with given characteristics. All models select midsize and large companies (market capitalization over $750M) and the beta for most portfolios recommended is under 1. All but one model has an annualized return over the last 14 years of over 20%, and we believe high returns are likely to continue in the future. A breakdown of several basic statistics from each model are below:
|Model||Annualized Return (1999-2012)||Avg. Number of Stocks Recommended||Average Beta|
|Basic Dividend Model||12.35%||13.65||0.8|
Macroeconomic, Personal Finance & Stock Situation Analysis
Economic and security analysis is not difficult or highly complex, nor should it be thought of that way. Wall Street has created numerous complex ideas for how to look at the markets and while those work, it is not the only method for successfully navigating the economy. As Warren Buffett has proven, being well informed, conducting simple logical analysis and back-of-the-evelope calculations can be all you need to understand the financial world around you. The Quant Investing blog contains insights on macroeconomic conditions, personal financial advice, and analysis of specific stocks and sectors. In all posts we provide quality research, a logical opinion and simple, easy to follow, analysis.
