STARTING AGAIN S&P 500 2013/Y-6

I'm starting over.

I saw good results when I did a quick and dirty test on the model using S&P constituents over the various years.  I'm going to start this time by putting all that down.  

This one is the S&P500 that existed in 2013 edited for companies that don't work with this model (financials primarily).  I run the model on that group as if it was early 2014, just after most of the companies have issued their 2013 results.  The model predicts the best performing stocks.  I'll then graph the actual results over various time frames.

This was the genesis that started this testing.  I'm going back to the beginning and recording those results.

Note: the edited S&P500 portfolio has 315 stocks in it.

One Year Return

Two Year Return Three Year Return Four Year Return Five Year Return Six Year Return Year Two Return Year Three Return Year Four Return Year Five Return Year Six Return Observations: 
These results are different for the S&P500 Y-6 ones that I published previously.  The reason is I defined the portfolio differently.  This testing had 315, the other had 300.  In the previous test, for the portfolio I removed all finance companies without regard to whether they might still have had the information needed to perform the analysis.  With this analysis, I looked at the data and removed those that didn't fit.
How the initial portfolio is defined is important, however these results, as well as the original results are both good, and indicative of the model's predictive ability.

11 Reasons Why INVRS is Better Than Excel Alone

If you work with your own investment models you likely use excel to build them, but excel isn’t ideal for many reasons and it costs you in other ways.   First, you need good data and it isn’t just lying around in an easy to import format.   You’re either keying it in yourself or paying money for excel downloads.   When you need data from numerous sources – price information, data from different statements and across multiple years - you must merge it from multiple sheets.   It's a n inefficient process which can lead to data corruption. After all this data is collected and merged, models built and tested, the net result is one statistic for one company.   A stand-alone number without context has limited use.   To be meaningful, you need to compare it to similar companies.       This is just a sample of the challenges.  You need software that overcomes these problems and is designed for investment model creation. Surprise!  This software exists,

NextEra - Good Dividend in the Renewable Energy Sector

NextEra had good results relative to a group of peers in a factor-based analysis. NextEra has an appealing profitability and income profile. Its price momentum looks decent, with a caveat. Its relatively small size (a small mid-cap) coupled with its industry (renewable energy) further weight the odds that this company could be a strong performer in the future. If you want in on renewable energy, we recommend NextEra. The Analysis Overview I created a portfolio of stocks in the alternative energy sector, looking specifically for companies with a market cap over $1B but less than $4B.  This is a sweet spot that offers strong potential for growth but is also substantial enough not to be too speculative. It's my believe that alternative energy is on the ascendance, where as fossil fuels will inevitably decline (NextEra isn't a pure play in this regard however, natural gas assets are part of its portfolio).  If you share this belief and you want exposure to this ma
