Hellerup, Denmark (PRWEB) September 4, 2010
Saxo Bank, the specialist in online trading and investment, has launched a new monthly equity research publication entitled "Global Value Equity Strategy" focused on highlighting the most undervalued stocks from around the world. It will appear each month on the Equities section of http://www.tradingfloor.com.
The "Global Value Equity Strategy" will highlight a value portfolio on 30 of the most undervalued stocks from around the world according to a proprietary equity screening model. Each issue of the publication will included back testing results and performance evaluation of the live portfolio.
"One of the many advantages of such a value strategy is that the investment horizon is longer, usually one year or more, eliminating short-term volatility currently prevalent in equity markets," said Christian Blaabjerg, chief equity strategist at Saxo Bank. "Equity related investment letters are widely distributed on the Internet nowadays. Few of them, however, focus on undervalued securities."
The "Global Value Equity Strategy" report includes a brief introduction to value stocks, how to recognize them and why investing in them is likely to generate superior returns compared to widely used benchmarks. The phrases "growth stocks" and "value stocks" appear fairly often in financial reports and publications and the "Global Value Equity Strategy" explains that a growth stock is a company, often large and well-known, which has generated high and stable earnings growth over a longer period of time. Investors tend to value such stocks higher as they extrapolate historical growth into the future. The problem is that only few stocks are able to maintain such earnings growth for a long time and competition typically results in a slowdown, eroding margins and market share for growth companies. This seems to explain why they tend to be inferior investments.
In backtesting from the start of 2006, the Saxo Bank Global Value Equity Strategy outperformed its benchmark index by far in 15 out of 18 quarters, even when dividends are excluded.
