! Tortoriello's Quantitative Strategies
John Bajkowski is president of AAII.


Gregory from TX posted over 6 years ago:

In his book he uses a number of screening strategies where he combines 2 and 3 factors and then backtests the results. The strategy with the lowest Max Loss and a High Return 21.3% was a simple 2 factor model of EBIT/Invested Capital >35% & FCF/Mkt Cap > 7%.

It would be nice if AAII included at least this single strategy with the other Stock Screens that it provided on-going results on.

Greg's idea sounds good to me. Quantatative strategies require less oversight on an individual company basis, but probably require more frequent rebalancing of the portfolio. Since the quantative screen here is primarily based on fundamentals, it might be possible to rebalance quarterly and achieve pretty good results. I have not read the book yet.

Tortoriello's quantitative strategy results should be added to the stock screens' roster.

Would it be possible to add this screen to the permanent stock screens that AAII tracks and runs.

How long does AAII wait before one of their reviewed method strategists makes the standard list of the AAII Stock Screening tool? This one, Tortoriello, seems like a good candidate.

Dave, Thanks for the request to the add Tortoriello to Stock Investor Pro. Adding new screens is a programming issue, but we are monitoring requests to add the screen to SI Pro. -Charles Rotblut

One issue that is noted is what is the ultimate return over a period and how does that value compare with benchmark. What is the standard deviation? The quantitative method is suitable for computer to do the number crunching. Any comments?
