Years of Experience

We know data. We have been providing the best research tools available anywhere since 2004. Our team’s Wall Street experience goes back all the way to the 1980’s.

Rules-Based Investing is Flat Out Better

Converting an investment strategy into a set of rules cuts down research time, helps to eliminate emotions and helps uncover stocks you previously had not heard of.

Research Tools

Multifactor Ranking

Classify your universes to find what you need
Ranking systems can be based on fundamental and/or technical factors. Each factor can be ranked against universe, sector or industry.

Stock & ETF Data

Access to the best-in-class data
Point-In-Time data with no survivorship or look-ahead biases. Our datasets include fundamentals, estimates, corporate actions, and industry and sector classification.

Strategies

Where all the components converge
Create a complete strategy using an intuitive interface. Incorporate ranking, separate buy and sell rules, custom universe, position sizing and hedging.

Screening

Scan the market in the present and past
No computer code required. Strategies are expressed in spreadsheet-like formulas using pre-built factors (like Piotroski F-Score) and user-defined operations like medians.

Book of Strategies

Test strategies together
Run simulations of multiple strategies together with different weights, and check the historical correlation between strategies.

Realistic Simulations

Test using real world assumptions
Test all your systems historically. Your screens, strategies, or ranking systems can be simulated using slippage and commissions for realism.

The Devil is in the Details

Consider these questions before subscribing to an alpha research product:

Do the people in the development team have the necessary know-how?
Null data is everywhere in financial ratios. Is it handled seamlessly?
Are press-releases being handled reliably and point in time?
Is the data free of look-ahead bias, survivorship bias, or artificial lagging?
Are issues and compromises being communicated transparently and honestly?
Is the cost of transactions and liquidity being taken into account in simulations?
Is every data point Point-In-Time, including amended data, estimates revisions, and industry classifications?
Are dividends awarded on the ex date and paid on the pay date?

Is your voice heard? Is the product actively and passionately developed?

Portfolio123 answers yes to all of them.
