Asbury’s Stock & ETF Ideas: Q1 2017 Performance Update

Posted on: Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

In addition to our top-down, macro analysis of the US financial landscape, we have recently added specific trading ideas in individual stocks and ETFs that include entry price, target price, stop loss level, and corresponding risk/reward parameters.

The tables below display and analyze our 31 most recent closed out trading ideas which encompass Q4 2016 and Q1 2017.

* Performance vs S&P 500 is the average relative outperformance of each individual trade versus the S&P 500 during the period that the trade was in effect.  Specifically, each of the 31 trades listed above have outperformed the S&P 500 by an average of 2.6%.

 

Our model first identifies stocks and ETFs that are in the midst of a pause (indicating investor indecision) within an established price trend, then attempts to buy the resumption of that trend at a price and time when the risk/reward parameters are the most favorable.

Our methodology is designed to produce:

  1. a high percentage of winning trades,
  2. significantly larger winning trades than losing trades, and
  3. an initial risk of 5% or less on any individual idea, all as shown by the small black and gray table above.

Finally, all investors should know that investing in financial assets is a risky endeavor and that past performance does not guarantee future results.
