AI, Machine Learning and the future of INVRS

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are two areas that hold great possibility in the field of finance and investing. 

Right now there are AI driven ETFs that consume huge amounts of data, learn from it and and then constantly re-balance a portfolio of securities designed to out-perform the market.  It's a fascinating frontier.

How will INVRS adopt this technology while still remaining true to our vision of empowering human analysts?

INVRS was founded on the notion of using technology to automate or make some of the more grueling, time consuming tasks easier, but still keep a human in charge of the creative elements of analysis.

Here are some of the avenues we may develop or are developing currently:

1) Allow users to back-test models to determine efficacy across stocks, industries and the broad market.  We expect that our users will find some of their models work better under certain circumstances and with certain industries.  This knowledge will help them select the "right tool for the job".

2) Allow users to feed INVRS their own data sets for analytical purposes. 

3) Expand the tool set beyond financial parameters to include language recognition.

4) Expand the tool set to include a programmable AI or machine learning interface giving the user the ability to direct the process and outcome.

These are some of the ideas we have.  We'd love to hear what you think.  Leave your ideas in comments section below or better still, sign-up for a free-trial at INVRS and then let your imagination run wild.

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
