The performance dispersion across any investment universe is a gold mine for active investors that have the right tools to profit from it. The ability to “identify and capture” some of the top 25% performers can make a big difference. It is possible to gain an edge using intelligent “trend validation” analytics.
At Trendrating we like to track and document the performance dispersion, a valuable insight for active managers. Our unique rating methodology can contribute to profiting from the dispersion.
Price trends are more extreme and last longer than in the past as they are impacted by several factors of which company fundamentals are only a small part. Money flow caused by major firms, analyst sentiment, social media sentiment, momentum players, and an economic landscape full of uncertainty and fast changing scenarios all contribute to creating and accelerating price trends in either direction that fundamental-driven methodologies cannot capture.
