Validea

Uses the strategies of many well known Wall Street investors, such as Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, Lynch, Greenblatt, Dreman, Fisher, etc….through financial screening. Each stock’s metrics are subjected to the various financial hurdles that the published works of those gurus suggest.

Annualized returns of each strategy, including a “Hot List” are maintained on the basis of historical from inception, on a yearly, monthly, weekly basis.

One of the advantages it offers is: It takes the emotions of the newscycle out of investing decisions.

I like the generally market beating results.

I’ve been a Validea subscriber for more than five years now and I’m pleased with the service. Don’t expect much interesting commentary; the primary benefit of the site is to screen stocks for each portfolio based on well-defined parameters linked to certain investment guru philosophies. They do an excellent job of tracking performance for each stock and each portfolio, and pretty much every portfolio beats the S&P500 over the long term (although there are certainly short-term periods where certain portfolios will lag the index).

You get to select which guru or combination of gurus to follow. I’ve done consistently well buying the top 10 stocks from the list of top 20 stocks from the top 5-rated gurus on a monthly basis. Sounds complicated but it’s not. How can I not buy a stock highly rated by… Read more »

Update…I ended up dumping Validea. Being purely numbers based, you’re tied into riding the down cycles as well as the up, which cost me too much money. They had one highly rated Chinese stock, LHP (now LHIP) that dropped 90% after a huge fraud allegation was levied against it. Months later, it’s still a very high recommendation on the site. It’s obvious the administrators don’t monitor the purely numerical results that generate their stock rankings. It’s too remote from the real world.
