Simon Lambert, editor of the UK's largest finance website thisismoney.co.uk and contributor to the Daily Mail, published a fantastic article that covered Stockopedia's screening technologies and the possibilities for investors to copy the investment strategies of finance legends. We can't recommend reading this article highly enough - it gives an excellent balanced overview of some of our work.
[Stockopedia] takes the idea of share screening and adds in a cunning twist. Not only can you drill down into individual stocks, but you can also check what shares would fit into the strategies of a whole host of famous and successful investors and build your own portfolio based on this. One of the advantages of using a share screening service like Stockopedia is that it helps throw up companies that you would otherwise not find out about. It also helps investors avoid getting caught in the traps that even the biggest household name dividend shares can lay.
Richard Beddard, Interactive Investor blogging legend and Money Observer portfolio manager, has long run a mechanical investing strategy inspired by the research studies of Joseph Piotroski and Joel Greenblatt. He has transferred the data service that generates the list of his 'Nifty Thrifty' portfolio over to Stockopedia's service having previously used a competitor. This is a tremendous validation of our approach and is written up in detail here.
Rather than retiring the Nifty Thrifty algorithm I’m going to revitalise it by employing a new data service from Stockopedia. Because of my doubts about the calculation, I altered the formula last summer to increase the safety factor by prioritising higher F_Scores, a decision I feel able to reverse now the Nifty Thrifty is using data from Stockopedia.
He also thoroughly reviewed the Stockopedia website in the following write up:
Stockopedia has emerged as my favourite.... a fast attractive website that provides excellent at a glance company summaries. It also scores with the simplicity and sophistication of its screening interface. For data, Stockopedia shines.
