Portfolio information


We use screens to identify industries and companies that show above average earning power. Then, we rate stocks using a matrix of various fundamental and quantitative factors. Some of these factors include above-average sales and earnings per-share growth rates. Finally, we review the company's original source material including quarterly reports and participate in quarterly conference calls and webcasts.


The screening process helps identify companies that meet specific criteria for growth and other metrics.

Sell discipline

We sell positions when the original reason for the purchase no longer exists or we find a better idea.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.

This portfolio was launched on Interactive Advisors on April 16, 2010, when clients were able to start investing in it. All performance information on this page is actual performance of the Portfolio Manager’s account and presented “net of fees”. The actual performance chart is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision. Actual client returns will differ. All Portfolio Manager information including personal data, profiles, and strategies has been provided by the Portfolio Manager. Interactive Advisors makes no representation or warranty of its accuracy, completeness or relevance and it does not represent the opinions of Interactive Advisors.

All performance information on this page is based on the performance of the Portfolio Manager’s account, using the manager’s own funds. Performance of the Portfolio Manager's account is calculated by Interactive Advisors on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and reflects the deduction of broker commissions (when commissions were charged). Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Interactive Advisors' trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Interactive Advisors’ advisory fees are simulated and applied retroactively to present the portfolio return “net-of-fees”.

In addition to Interactive Advisors’ management fees, clients will also be charged management fees and other expenses (custodian fees, brokerage commissions, and legal and accounting fees) by ETF issuers if the portfolio contains ETFs.
