  • Below I give the best global stocks according to 7 quantitative strategies and a US-only strategy.
  • This information is from 12 April 2021. Many of these stocks are still good picks.

I try to be useful for others. I do that in several ways: by writing for my subscribers, by writing for Seeking Alpha and also by writing these free blogs.

To serve my subscribers I can only publish limited research and rankings as free blogs or as regular articles on Seeking Alpha.

Among others I publish outcomes for the stocks I researched 2 years ago. See my latest blog with outcomes for stocks from 2 years ago. Several of these stocks are still cheap. Sometimes I also publish research on stocks I discussed in detail for my subscribers at least one month earlier.

What I also do is publishing rankings of my strategies with a delay, a month or so. In this article I publish the very best stocks of each of the strategies I cover, from about a month ago.

Subscribers get an up to date spreadsheet twice a month. That spreadsheet contains many more stocks and also fundamental metrics for each stock. They also get research for many of these stocks. Furthermore I keep track of two lists with stocks for them: "Selected Stocks" and "Played Out".

Below are the best ranked stocks based on stock prices from 12 April 2021. It is important to realize not all these stocks were good picks even when I generated these lists. Sometimes the fundamental data used for generating the lists contains errors that can only be found by reading the filings. So be aware that the information in these lists is not always accurate. Sometimes there is important information available on such stocks from other sources. I try to collect that kind of information for my subscribers.

For several of the stocks below prices have moved or fundamentals have changed. But most of them are still cheap. Therefore I still think these lists are useful.

For my net-nets there is even some statistical proof for this: Victor Wendl finds investors investing in net-nets based on even much more outdated information enjoy more or less the same high returns but with higher risks.

His result also suggests someone complementing quantitative investing with checking fundamentals, so with minimal research, can get better returns than a purely quantitative investor.

Analyst's Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

In my blogs I do not disclose which stocks I own. I do not disclose which or when I plan to buy or sell them. Because I have many small positions that would take too much of my time. Furthermore many of these stocks have low trading volume. So be careful since small trades can easily move these stocks.
