The selections offered here also have been boosted to include the Benjamin Graham enhancements and additional parameters described in the methods section below.
In addition, the Benjamin Graham enhancements have been applied on the basis that these characteristics are well documented to deliver excess annual market returns.

StockRover Introduction to Piotroski F-Score Methodology This article continues the series of testing the best value investment research over a one-year time horizon for well-documented and substantial value-investing returns.
This study is testing the Piotroski F-score model to see how many of the different value portfolios formed each month can outperform the market over a year-long period. These Piotroski value selections are designed as a more stable, long-term investment approach to identify highly oversold stocks, in contrast to the Weekly Breakout Forecast based on highly volatile, short-term momentum stocks. The value selection formulas have been well-documented in the financial literature over the past 17 years to consistently outperform benchmark indexes.
The American Association of Individual Investors also documents their own multi-year test results of the Piotroski F-score as one of the best-performing models with year annualized total returns of The values and methodologies from Joseph Piotroski and Benjamin Graham were devised for long-term value approaches that differ significantly from growth or momentum strategies.
The benefit of the inclusion of the different types of models that I offer is to identify when these larger cycles begin to shift and readers can reap significant gains from changing models. Additionally, there has been no other value strategy tested in the financial literature that has beaten the Piotroski approach in all the peer-reviewed studies over competitive 1-year tests.
A sample of the Weekly Top stocks in breakout conditions across all portfolio types is shown below: Background on Value Scoring Systems Calculating scores and assigning values to stocks based on fundamental data remain one of the most popular methods for value stock investing. Most of us are familiar with such scoring systems as the Value Line Rank started in , the CANSLIM composite ranking system started in , the Zacks Rank started in , first made public in , and many other popular systems that have given us good results over the years.
To this day, it is not uncommon to find substantial overlap among the best stocks identified by different value ranking methodologies. Most medium- to long-term investors are well served by taking these models into consideration. Less well-known are the academic composite value models based on fundamentals that continue to be rigorously tested in peer-reviewed financial literature.
Some of these published models have their measurement scoring integrated into publicly available stock screens from various stock analysis websites. One of the best academic models retested recently by Amor-Tapia and Tascon is the Piotroski score model created by Joseph Piotroski in The Piotroski FSCORE: The Score consists of aggregating nine individual binary signals derived from accounting variables related to profitability.
The most favorable value score is 9 and the least favorable is zero. Because it leaves out many other important characteristics it is better applied as an enhancement to the highly successful Piotroski F-Score value selection model. Conclusion The Piotroski F-Score model has been well-documented in the financial literature and by practitioners to generate significant abnormal returns on an annual basis.
This value model remains one of the top selection models among dozens also tracked by the American Association of Individual Investors.
First, value stocks tend to be neglected. As a group, these companies are thinly followed by the analyst community and are plagued by low levels of investor interest. Given this lack of coverage, analyst forecasts and stock recommendations are unavailable for these firms. Second, these firms have limited access to most "informal" information dissemination channels and their voluntary disclosures may not be viewed as credible given their poor recent performance. Therefore, financial statements represent the most reliable and most accessible source of information about these firms.
Third,high BM firms tend to be "financially distressed"; as a result, the valuation of these firms focuses on accounting fundamentals such as leverage, liquidity, profitability trends, and cash flow adequacy.
These fundamental characteristics are most readily obtained from historical financial statements. These enhanced model selections above also eliminate financial outliers and low-priced stocks that may jeopardize the best performance results possible.

Nichtsdestotrotz wirbelte er mit seinen Schriften in der Investmentwelt viel Staub auf. Piotroski beendete sein Studium in Rechnungslegung an der University of Illinois. Dies resultierte in seinem Doktortitel und er beschloss, sich weiter umzuschauen. Weniger als ein Jahr in Chicago und Piotroski schrieb schon einen bahnbrechenden Artikel. Worin Piotroski sich aber zu unterscheiden wusste, das lag tiefer. Durch seine Nachforschungen realisierte er, dass viele Unternehmen aufgrund von ernsthaften finanziellen Problemen einen hohen Buchwert-zu-Marktwert haben.
