High Piotroski Scores in Magic Formula Investing
I run this article at least once a year, and it is always interesting to see what the results actually are. Here are the one-year results of the Piotroski article from last February:
Dell (DELL) +15.2%
DeVry (DV) -30.6%
Visa (V) +60.8%
Mednax (MD) +26.6%
Buckle (BKE) +25.6%
Oshkosh (OSK) -37.1%
Aeropostale (ARO) -31.1%
Lincoln Educational Services (LINC) -37.0%
Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) +68.1%
Seagate Technology (STX)
Teradyne (TER) -7.2%
USA Mobility (USMO) -2.6%
Veeco Instruments (VECO) -36.0%
As usual, a mixed bag of individual stocks, but again a solid result collectively. The average gain here is +10.3%, far outperforming the S&P 500's +6.2% performance over the same one-year period. We've seen good results using the Piotroski method as an additional filter on top of the Magic Formula® screens in the handful of times it has been tested.
