San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Integrity Research Associates, a consulting firm which evaluates investment research providers, has analyzed the performance of stock recommendations made by ten independent stock research firms available through Fidelity.com, as tabulated by Investars, a performance measurement specialist and concluded that Ford Equity Research scored first for overall performance.
Ford Equity Research won Fidelity’s Research Award Score for its overall performance for the first time after finishing in second for thirteen of the last fourteen quarters since Fidelity’s quarterly Research Awards were initiated five years ago. Ford Equity Research’s performance has steadily improved over the last few quarters, and it attained the top spot through excellent return metrics for its recommendations. Additionally, Ford’s successful recommendations at a sector level, an improved risk profile and a slightly longer holding period for its recommendations outpaced its immediate competitors
Tim Alward, President and CEO of Ford Equity Research, said, “Our stock recommendations are based on a well-diversified investment process of earnings strength, relative valuation and price movement. The combination allows us to perform in up markets while still having some defense in down markets. We are honored to receive this top score which reflects the excellence of the underlying data from Mergent and the superior expertise of the Ford analyst team.”
