BEAT THE MARKET.......WITH LESS RISK
¬†¬†¬†¬† The WALL STREET JOURNAL (WSJ) recently (Saturday/Sunday edition Oct. 1, 2011) ran the following article.......Beat The Market...With Less Risk.¬† This article featured investment in low-volatility stocks as a way to beat the market.¬† Their data shows that by buying stocks with a low BETA you can beat the market.¬† Low BETA is a VALUE investment which means that it is a slow, safe way to invest profitably for the long term.¬† The WSJ article¬†tells of¬†many EFT's¬† that give a list of low BETA stocks.¬† Rateviewer has had this feature available for over a year.¬† Simply go to the tab, STOCKS RANKED, and choose TOP RATED STOCKS.¬† Go then to BETA and click two times.¬† The stock that is now listed as the best Beta stock as of Oct 1, 2011 in both the WSJ and¬†RATEVIEWER is Dollar General with a rating of .07. You can searh BETA on all three (3) indices (DOW, S&P, NASDAQ) and on RATEVIEWER.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
¬†¬†¬†¬† BETA (volatile) is the tendency of stocks to repond to swings in the market.¬† A BETA of 1 could mean the stock will move in the same direction the market moves.¬† Greater than 1 could mean the stock price will be more volatile than the market and 1.2, in theory, could mean 20% more volatile than the overall market. This RATEVIEWER (beta) feature is a filter that rearanges the Beta ratings from best to worsts....and.......worst to best.¬† You can compare BETA ratings on all three indices............DOW, S&P 500 and NASDAQ.
