Chosen Stock Filters
Our stock selection process of the ChatGPT's Choice Strategy involves a three-step procedure, starting with an industry filter, followed by a series of scoring indicators, and finally a total score filter. This is the screenshot of the filters in the SimFin stock screener:
Step 1. Industry Classification Filter: We focus solely on technology stocks, excluding all others from our portfolio.
Step 2. Scoring Indicators: We apply six unique scoring indicators to each technology stock, including:
Growth Rate of EPS: If the EPS growth rate over the past year is higher than 15%, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Growth Rate of Revenues: If the revenue growth rate over the past year is higher than 20%, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Return on Equity: If the ROE is higher than 20%, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Price to Earnings Ratio: If the PE ratio is lower than the median of all companies, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Dividends per Share: If the DPS is higher than 2, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Market Cap: If the market cap is higher than $1 billion, the stock scores 1; otherwise, it scores 0.
Step 3. Total Score Filter: Only stocks with a total score above 3, after applying the six scoring indicators, are included in our portfolio.
The core intent of our strategy is to leverage the high-growth potential and innovation-driven nature of the technology sector to achieve high ROI. By applying stringent filters and scoring criteria, we aim to select only the most promising tech stocks for our portfolio.
Our strategy opens up opportunities to benefit from:
High-Growth Potential: Technology stocks often exhibit higher growth rates than stocks in other sectors.
Innovation-Driven Gains: Tech companies are at the forefront of innovation, which can drive substantial stock price appreciation.
Diversification: Even within the technology sector, there's considerable diversity in terms of subsectors and types of companies.
Potential risks include:
Sector Concentration: Focusing solely on technology stocks could increase vulnerability to sector-specific risks.
Volatility: Tech stocks can be more volatile than stocks in more traditional sectors.
Valuation Risks: Tech stocks often trade at high multiples, which can increase the risk of overvaluation.
