NEW YORK: After a surge in U.S. markets during 2017, it could be time to start moving some capital to international equity markets. At CressCap our computer analysis employs a multi-factor quant model which focuses on well-balanced fundamentals. In this model we identify buy ideas with the collective traits of value, growth, strong EPS revisions, profitability and good long-term price momentum. All of these characteristics are measured and ranked on a sector relative basis with academic letter grades (A-F). Employing these core metrics has allowed our product to identify what we believe will be successful buys in 2018.
Our systematic trading model searches almost 7,000 stocks everyday to find companies that fulfill our time-tested parameters and criteria. Through this process and methodology, we have identified several international companies that we anticipate will perform incredibly well in 2018.
