2018 Strategy Performance and Review

February 4, 2019 | Read Now

Unlike how 2018 ended, 2019 is off to a great start.

YTD, the S&P500 is up 6.3% as I write this. Compare that to December of 2018 when the market dropped 10% and ended the year close to -7%.

So how did the value strategies posted on Old School Value do?

The 2017 Action Score Portfolio That Will Beat the Market

January 16, 2017 | Read Now

Here are the rules for the portfolio.

No changes until end of the year, UNLESS a company is bought out and needs to be replaced.
20 stocks @ $5k each for a $100k portfolio
A grade stocks (but can include B if not enough A’s)
No OTC stocks due to many people not wanting or being able to buy them (nothing wrong with OTC stocks though)

Beating The Market With 20% Returns. Reviewing Our 2016 Stock Grader Portfolio.

January 12, 2017 | Read Now

2016 was the first year our Old School Value Action Score that you see on the Old School Value stock analysis software took to the streets.

What is an “Action Score”?

In a nutshell, it’s a set of 9 (mostly value based) metrics used to score a stock between 0-100. Stocks are then graded based on their scores.

The #1 goal of the Action Score is to reduce the time spent trying to find ideas.

If you believe in the 80/20 rule, you’ll see that you tend to spend 80% of your time looking for stocks. Less (much less) than 20% of the time is spent on analyzing, thinking, valuing and learning about companies.

The #2 goal of the Action Score is to utilize a mix of uncommon metrics and fundamentals to create a quantitative strategy for people who are short on time, yet enjoy the DIY investing approach.

Results are in.

First, I’ll be going over results of the free value stock screeners and then in a few days, I’ll post the results of the Action Score with a breakdown of how each grade did.

I’m also excited to share a report later this month where the Action Score was independently tested to verify the accuracy and expected returns of the Old School Value Action Score.
