This Just Might Work, Part I.

As part of a portfolio, it just might work to equally weight the companies found in Table 1. If this part of the portfolio fails, we will investigate to determine whether any signals were available on the date of purchase that might have allowed for a premonish as to potential failure. The same is also true for the success of this portfolio.

Table 1: The following companies were selected based upon data available as at 1st March 2012. A portfolio was started by equally weighting each of the companies in this list based upon the price as at 7th March 2013. Prices for each month thereafter are given as at the 7th of the month or the nearest trading day. This is a real-money portfolio.

However, I suspect that it might be better to weight according to the exponential of the relative beta values.

I hope that this helps.
