Saxo Bank, the specialist in online trading and investment,
has launched a new monthly equity research publication entitled "Global Value Equity Strategy" focused on highlighting the most
undervalued stocks from around the world. It will appear each month on
the Equities section of www.tradingfloor.com.
The "Global Value Equity Strategy" will highlight a value portfolio on 30 of the
most undervalued stocks from around the world according to a proprietary equity
screening model. Each issue of the publication will included back testing results
and performance evaluation of the live portfolio.
"One of the many advantages of such a value strategy is that the investment horizon
is longer, usually one year or more, eliminating short-term volatility currently
prevalent in equity markets," said Christian Blaabjerg, chief equity strategist at
Saxo Bank. "Equity related investment letters are widely distributed on the
Internet nowadays. Few of them, however, focus on undervalued securities."
The "Global Value Equity Strategy" report includes a brief introduction to value
stocks, how to recognize them and why investing in them is likely to generate
superior returns compared to widely used benchmarks. The phrases "growth stocks"
and "value stocks" appear fairly often in financial reports and publications and
the "Global Value Equity Strategy" explains that a growth stock is a company,
often large and well-known, which has generated high and stable earnings growth over
a longer period of time. Investors tend to value such stocks higher as they
extrapolate historical growth into the future. The problem is that only few stocks
are able to maintain such earnings growth for a long time and competition typically
results in a slowdown, eroding margins and market share for growth companies. This
seems to explain why they tend to be inferior investments.
In backtesting from the start of 2006, the Saxo Bank Global Value Equity Strategy
outperformed its benchmark index by far in 15 out of 18 quarters, even when
dividends are excluded.
