  • Some Peace And Quiet With Low Beta Stocks 0 comments
    Jan 28, 2014 6:23 AM | about stocks: SPY, DIA, IWM

    Every so often, the high-beta, growth-oriented momentum portfolio needs a little peace and quiet via a prudent diversification into lower-beta equities. A mix of varying beta stocks can provide diversification within a 100% stock allocation, whether it consists of consumer staples, healthcare, energy, telecom, etc.

    Baseline Analytics ran a stock screener selecting equities with the following characteristics:

    • Below market beta of 0.8 or lower
    • Return on equity of 10% or higher
    • Price Earnings Ratio under 15
    • Dividend yield of 1.5% or higher

    The attached stock screen has not been combed for timely trades or other fundamental or technical indicators that might suggest a high reward-to-risk ratio. We leave that work up to our StockStash service. Click on the link below and it will open an Excel file with our low beta selections.
