Quote:If you have followed AVF, you will know the screening process starts with a quant model, with about 10,000 stock initially, then added-value with a qualitative process on the shortlisted stocks. I have chosen to refer it as quantitative.

I have known lesser on Yeoman Capital, but base on the limited knowledge on Mr. Yeo's fund, the selection process isn't depend on quant model, but the 3-Rights criteria. I have chosen to refer it as qualitative.

If Yeoman applies the 3-rights criteria on 10000 stocks, isn't that the same?

Teh Hooi Ling used to run quant models in BT invest during her times in BT but I think it was mainly to illustrate that even a blind quantitative analysis was still rather good. I doubt she would use the same technique for her portfolio. It just needs slightly more effort to pick out the better ones from the list.

I really doubt the 3-Rights criteria, can be effectively done by a quant model on the 10,000 stocks. The modelling is challenging Big Grin

I don't have insider info, but I reckon Ms. Teh will re-used the existing AVF quant model, probably with fine-tuning. She can add value on the shortlist later, and make a difference.

I respectfully have a slightly different perspective. More often than not one has to be very careful NOT to actually detract value from a purely mechanical process (see http://www.rhhsmath.ca/courses/mdm4u/blink.pdf)

Where got low risk. Many of these smaller companies credit standing cannot even justify a bond issue on the normal debt market.

5% for a "junk" bond. Very good deal for the companies man.
