Portfolio123: Income Stocks

This model targets some of the better opportunities in dividend paying stocks. The average Yield of the holdings is 4.5%. This is NOT included in the out-of-sample or simulated results. The models holds the 20 highest yielding stocks that pass all the requirements. The portfolio is rebalanced and reconstituted once a month.

Some of the requirements are:

  • Have a minimum yield of 1.5
  • Dividend Growth in last three years
  • Balance between yield and ability to maintain it
This model holds 20 positions and has an annual turnover of approximately 150%. We rebalance the portfolio every 4-6 weeks. This model is based on Portfolio123's 'Income' model and is modified to work with the FOLIOfn's platform

Model Creation Methodology

Creating Portfolio123 models involves many steps and thorough analysis. First an overall strategy is chosen, like Value or Growth. Factors are then chosen that fit within the strategy, and show statistical significance in explaining excess returns. The models are then simulated using historically accurate data with no look-ahead bias. A variety of techniques are used to ensure that the results would have closely matched reality.

The results are rigorously analyzed using Monte Carlo simulations, rolling simulations, mean/variance optimization, correlation analysis, etc. The end results are models which are robust and have a high probability to perform as well as the historically simulated results during Bull and Bear markets.

NOTE: No manual intervention is allowed with the quantitative models' selections in any case except in very specific circumstances where the ranks derived from fundamental company data no longer reflects the value of the company. The following situations prevent the model from selecting the stock or trigger an immediate sell:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Fraud and Scams
  • Indictments and or legal action against management team
