Methodology

Smarter Analytics. Smarter Investing.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

FusionIQ methodology and efficacy were validated by an independent expert research company – white paper available upon request. They found that FusionIQ Master Scores above 70 and below 45 show valuable and consistent results over many different investment capitalizations and styles. Over the period 2013 through 2015 using a liquid universe with market capitalization above $200 million, stocks with a FusionIQ Master Score of 70 or more outperformed the universe 62% of the time, while stocks with a FusionIQ Master Score of less than 45 underperformed the universe 65% of the time. The average monthly model portfolio return for stocks, rebalanced monthly, with a FusionIQ Master Score of 70 or more was 35 bps above the universe while the average monthly return for stocks with a FusionIQ Master Score less than 45 was 72 bps below the universe.  Note: These results are from a model portfolio backtest and not the results on a live, funded portfolio with real money.

A TRUE FOUR-DIMENSIONAL VIEW ...

 

FusionIQ’s proprietary four-dimensional scoring model includes but is not limited to: valuation, balance sheet strength, improving financials, price momentum, sentiment, and a broad range of technical factors. Our model is grounded in the belief that simpler is better, but more relevant information is preferred to less. The value-add of our model comes from the stability we present using quality, time-tested factors, and from providing a dynamic weighting scheme which amplifies the models effectiveness by adjusting the factor weights for various market environments.

       
A dynamic, multi-factor fundamental model that examines over 70 factors. A proprietary algorithm determines which factors are most relevant given current market conditions and assigns those factors greater weight.

 
A sentiment model that incorporates the magnitude and direction of earnings revisions, as well as changes in expectations from the Wall Street analyst community.

 
A proprietary weighting of multiple technical indicators, including three different time frames of trend, as well as individual and group fund flows.
 
A model that incorporates a scoring of stocks that have the best returns over various time frames, from short-term to longer-term (weeks to months to years). The model includes volume momentum and short-term price reversals.
 

 

… Applied from Top-to-Bottom
Composite Master Scores for Groups & Sub-Groups, Market Indices & ETF’s

 

At FusionIQ, we only look at Sectors, Groups, Industries & ETFs as sums of their weighted individual components. By rolling up our proprietary, real-time, four-dimensional scores from the individual constituent level, we always present a true sum-of-the-parts picture. This approach assures that our process and our output transcends changing industry dynamics, index composition, or ETF construction and always reflects the actual fundamental, technical, sentiment, and momentum characteristics based on our proven algorithm.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 


 WHY FUSION IQ?

 securities intelligence

Multi-Dimensional Intelligence

Most traders, investors and portfolio managers still view the world in one or two dimensions (commonly time & price). We use four. Our proprietary algorithm assigns numerical values (FusionIQ Scores) to over 5,000 listed securities based on the “fusion” of a wide range of quantitative technical, fundamental, momentum and sentiment indicators.
