Re: 2021 stock-picking contest

Hi all,

my list
Ticker("SRT, ESGR, CHE, PRSC, CVEO, ALG, IESC, SMTS, EVOL, CSTR, QCRH, AVNW, NVGS, SAMG, EVTC, LAZY, DOOO, MSTR, NG, MTA")

and live portfolio

I agree with Steve that there should be only one list per contestant - and that can be either stocks or ETFs.

As Juval mentioned in the initial post, the participation in this contest should spur discussion. So it would be great to have at least a two-liner from each participant to describe what is behind his/her strategy. For my strategy I selected stocks with low to no debt, and I tried to get some exposure to gold and crypto.

Happy investing in 2021!

Florian makes a good point here. There should be some rational for the picks.
My list comes from tracking the holdings of a number of hedge funds. They are the consensus new buys from the 13F filings for Q2 and Q3-2020. So we will see how that works out.

Ticker ... Name
AMD ... Advanced Micro Devices Inc
CCXI ... ChemoCentryx Inc
CRSP ... CRISPR Therapeutics AG
DKNG ... DraftKings Inc
DOCU ... DocuSign Inc.
FLEX ... Flex Ltd
FND ... Floor & Decor Holdings Inc
GDDY ... GoDaddy Inc
IOVA ... Iovance Biotherapeutics Inc
MTCH ... Match Group Inc
NPO ... EnPro Industries Inc.
PENN ... Penn National Gaming Inc
PINS ... Pinterest Inc
RPTX ... Repare Therapeutics Inc

Agreed. The basis for my selections is in the model's 'about' section.

Re: 2021 stock-picking contest

My selections are based on a couple of ranking systems I backtested quite a bit this year. Most of these companies have high gross margins compared to the industry average, low share turnover, strong value ratios (looking mostly at sales, r&d spending, # of employees, and net income), middling TTM sales growth, and, in terms of their size, low total assets. In addition, I'm currently heavily invested in eight of these companies. In other words, these are relatively safe microcaps and small caps, in my opinion, and are likely to weather unforeseen circumstances.

Re: 2021 stock-picking contest

My selections come from the top 20 stock tickers in the ARKW ETF.

ARKW's #4 is GBTC, but it isn't publicly accessible, so to replace GBTC, I added TREE which is their #21 spot.

Re: 2021 stock-picking contest

I'll throw my hat in the ring this year. These are the top 20 from my January 2021 research cycle. I rarely hold a stock for more than six months, let alone a year. However my top 20 from January last year, had I held them, did very well, so...

CDNS
RMD
EGO
PGR
SNPS
ORCL
HZO
VEEV
NDAQ
ACN
ACHC
EVR
GSL
GRBK
MKC
PG
SHW
SAM
NX
RPM



I built this research process back in 1995. Went live in 1997. Hasn't changed much since. I spent years coding it onto P123 since the site capability took a long time to evolve into handling it.

Basically a dynamic factor weighting foundation with added risk/reward computations and a little MPT.
