For those of us trying to control our irrational investing behavior there is an interesting new Podcast with Dr Daniel Crosby the author of, “The Laws of Wealth: Psychology and the secret to investing success”. Daniel is a rules based value/quality/momentum investor, so his thinking will chime with many Stocko readers…. Enjoy. Ian

This time of year is ideal to fine tune an investment strategy and to re-weight accordingly. It got me thinking about my best investment idea for 2018, or in other words the company with the most potential to reliably  increase in value in the coming year. My choice is Taptica International (LON:TAP)  - I hold. Tapica’s business is pesky mobile phone advertising optimisation. The market…

I have a variety of customised Quality screens, some of which are tougher to pass than others. What has surprised me is the number of Asset management companies that are passing the toughest of screens and the extent of their 1Y gains.   I have selected 3 (which I now hold) and am thinking that the Asset managers themselves have become a better investment prospect than…

Stocko does not display fundamental data on individual ETFs, but I would like to be able to screen International ETFs for Momentum metrics such as, 52 Week High and Relative Strength. Any suggestions please?

I am normally a bottom up UK small cap stock picker who uses Stockrank data as an integral part of the selection process.

I personally think that a combination of rules + factors + anomalies with human judgement work best. But to make the "best" judgement it is important to understand the rationale for the first…

Gus, Yes lots of takeaways, many of which I have come across before, but not all in one chunk. I liked his analogy of us all claiming to know how a flush toilet works until we have to write this down, or explain it to others - So it is with investing. I will order his book, because I have found in the past, that…

I listened to a podcast this week that mentioned that 60% of Algorithms have trend following components (momentum), which will tract shares/trends up and down. Therefore it may be necessary for us to think like these trend following Algorithms to make the most of current markets. Ian

This drop looks like a short(ish) term correction caused by the US market getting ahead of itself. I believe that speculators burnt by Crypocurrencies has knocked confidence too. No sign of a world recession, so I will look to buy discounted quality companies once the market stabilizes.  Ian
