The best market experts and stock screens 2008-04-13

By SumOfSome | April 21, 2008

New scores posted, and two screens have matured.  The All Season Growth and ClearStation A-List screens have each had five screens reach the 10-week maturity mark (a point at which fluctuations can balance out a bit), so I will now report on their scores.

I still need to write an article explaining how the scores are calculated, sorry for the delay.  In summary, the key criteria measured are the amount the experts/screens beat the S&P and the frequency with which they beat it.  A multiple is added to weigh the mid (26 week) and long term (52 week) results more than the short (10 week) and micro (2 week) durations since the shorter results are more volatile.  A multiple is also applied to adjust the scores based on the trustworthiness of the screen, based on how many times it has run.

Martin Zweig Mimic -3 0 -2 -2
ClearStation Community -10 6 -20 -4

I do not list scores for any screen that has not had five screens reach the 10-week maturity mark.  This will help to limit large fluctuations in the scores and leaping to conclusions to soon.  Details for these screens can still be found in the stock market strategies section.
