SmallCap Growth

A strategy for investors seeking growth of capital from smallcap stocks.

Strategy Description

The Small-Cap Growth model focuses on fast-growing small cap companies that are experiencing rising earnings with upward revisions in analyst estimates.

 
The minimum market cap is set at $50 million with $200 million of daily turnover.  The model’s technical rules identify rising trends in both the targeted stocks and the stock market.  No new selections are recommended unless the market is in an uptrend.  The model will hold a maximum of 10 stocks equally weighted.

The model is rebalanced weekly.

 

Definitions

Sharpe Ratio – the average return earned in excess of the risk-free rate.  A higher Sharpe Ration is better

Risk-Free Rate – represents the interest an investor would expect from an absolutely risk-free investment over a specified period of time.

Sortino Ratio – another measure of risk that takes into account the downside deviation of the asset.  A higher Sortino Ratio is better.

What is Drawdown?

Drawdown is the measure from the highest high to the lowest low or peak to trough during a specific time period.  It is an important measurement of risk.  A larger drawdown requires a more significant increase in the security to recover.

Volatility measures the change in the price of an investment.  The higher the volatility, the higher the difference between the high and the low of an investment’s price.

The 12 Month Rolling ROR is the compound rate of return for the last 12 months.  The rate of return is the gain or loss on an investment over a specified time period, expressed as a percentage of the investment’s cost.
