This page is updated every 3-4 months. It shows historical performance of the most powerful strategies we have back tested on the JSE as well as performance of our live model portfolios. Go to the RESEARCH menu to read about strategies we track and back tests we have done on the JSE. Please note that NO LEVERAGE IS USED in any of our model portfolios, just plain old standard share purchases.

Here we display the performance of our best "live" model portfolios - live versions of our best share picking strategies. These are a continuation of the back-tests to allow us to form a robust history and validation of real-world strategy performance. Go to the STRATEGIES main menu for updates on the live portfolios including their share make-up and individual share growths. Please note that JSE regulations require us to disclose we have invested in our personal capacities in every one of the below portfolios.

Here we show the results of  the most powerful strategies taken from our 8 year back-test series. The 14-year Piotroski and 10-year PowerShares back-test results were adjusted to reflect the same 8-year back-test periods used for the other strategies, so all strategies could be compared against the same timeline, namely 2000-2008. Note that except for PowerShares, all backtests were done on an ALL STOCKS universe which means they contain many illiquid shares and micro-cap stocks.

P2BD10 is the Decile-10 strategy taken from the Price/Book 8 year backtests.
