Think about a profitable investment you had, maybe you invested in Apple or Coca Cola. What made you pick that? Think about an unprofitable investment you had, what made you pick that?

In working with thousands of stocks, they can be ranked, they can be graded, and buying those at the top of the rankings gets better results than an index fund, both in backtests and in real life investments. It requires us to relax our need to prove ourselves to be the smartest and best prognosticators, and focus on what each stock actually is: an investment that will help the company and
us if we look at it correctly, not just a way to make a quick buck for ourselves. What do most people look for in stocks that misleads them?

Security
Safety
Trustworthiness
Growth

These are correct, but mastering the art of looking for Trustworthy companies is surprisingly easy. Most companies are not full of frauds, their leadership aren’t lying about their results!

To get to a better state in the market, we just need to identify ahead of the market who those bad actors are, and the ones with good numbers who are not them… those are the best investments, the
ones who need investment the most. They have the best value. Like premium clothes on the clearance rack, they need to be bought, but also, they are good quality. They may be lumped with bad quality items, but they are what we most desire, and what needs to be bought to most as well.
