Idea Generator Returns, January 2018 Update

This is how things looked for Idea Generator as of January 31, 2018:

At the moment Idea Generator is being extremely conservative. The current overall market is not giving rise to many opportunities with the necessary valuation support.

The Idea Generator Portfolio uses:

  • Very conservative allocations (less than 10% per individual stock idea, except for special and rare cases like pair trades or ETF Index exposure).
  • Long and short positions.
  • Rarely if ever a 100% net long exposure (though it could conceivably go higher than that, it never did). Indeed, it has run most months under a 50% net long exposure.

Idea Generator has a 14-day free trial period, so if you want to get more detail just subscribe and then cancel if it doesn't fit you.
