We launched the ’All Clear‘ portfolio based on investor demand. As investors have enjoyed the returns of our portfolios, there was a call for one core portfolio offering the same transparency, clarity and performance as our individual style portfolios while giving investors exposure to all of our investing styles
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 7, 2006 -–
Clear Asset Management LLC (Clear AM), an investment advisor and equity research firm, today introduced a “best of the best” stock portfolio comprised of top ranked stocks from its six style portfolios. Each of Clear AM’s six portfolios has reported since inception returns after fees of more than double the S&P 500.
The new portfolio, called “All Clear” provides investors with access to stocks across Clear AM’s six investing styles of large, mid and small cap growth and value.
Founded in 2004 by Andrew Corn, a former senior vice president of TheStreet.com, and Dr. Daniel A. Nathanson, a former professor of NYU's Stern School of Business, the company invests solely on recommendations made by its custom-designed computerized investing algorithms that screen, evaluate, rank and weight stocks. The screens and algorithms are based on a combination of academic studies and the reverse engineering of equity holdings of top performing fund managers.
"We launched the ’All Clear‘ portfolio based on investor demand. As investors have enjoyed the returns of our portfolios, there was a call for one core portfolio offering the same transparency, clarity and performance as our individual style portfolios while giving investors exposure to all of our investing styles,” said Andrew Corn, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Clear AM.
“Our new portfolio offers investors a well-balanced vehicle that combines value and growth, small, mid and large cap stocks into a single well-diversified portfolio,” said Nathanson, Clear AM Chief Investment Officer.
The performance of Clear AM’s six individual stock market portfolios is shown below. Clear AM’s returns are shown after deducting all management fees and trading costs and are from inception through January 31, 2006:

To select its stocks, Clear AM uses more than 700 custom screens to evaluate over 10,000 publicly traded companies and US traded ADRs, based on roughly 6,800 data points. It only ranks stocks that have passed its rigorous screening process and only the top ranked stocks make the portfolios. The ranking algorithms also determine each stock’s weighting within a portfolio. Shares are sold when a stock’s ranking falls or when other stocks have risen higher in ranking. The portfolios are rebalanced monthly.
