Every morning I take a 10 minute tour of the Stockrank Movers to see if any of companies in my universe have been upgraded by >10 units. Since their results 2 days ago the newly computed James Fisher and Sons (LON:FSJ) numbers have gained +30 to 91 for Stockrank score and the Quality score has jumped +35 to 89.  James Fisher was already showing excellent…

With a Quality Rank of 99, Financial Health F score of 9 and bountiful  return numbers which have improved consistently for the last 5 years,…

A new podcast with Vanguard’s Factor manager, Liqian Ren. Her funds include Quality, Momentum, Value and Multifactor (Stockrank) style ETFs. As an aside Liqian suggests that in the US during the last 10 years Quality has outperformed Value and Momentum and that this is logical because high Quality companies will produce more organic growth.

Its 2 years since Ben wrote this article and the Buffettology fund has grown from <£100M to a whopping >£1100M . The fund's cumulative return (since 2011) is some 230%; no mean achievement.   Looking at the Buffettology current Top 10 holdings the QM scoring pattern is similar to a year ago with 9 out of the Top 10 holdings having a QM score of 80+,…

Worth noting from the full report......Our new (Norway) sovereign wealth fund arrangement is performing exactly as we had planned: it is providing incremental capital – akin to structural leverage – while enabling the balance sheet to increase its investment returns without having to advance every dollar of capital.
