A good investment strategy should have a clearly defined thesis. For example: “This year, I will be implementing the Top Quality and High Momentum strategy. I will be investing $5000 in the strategy. These stocks have high return on equity and price momentum. I will create a 20 stock portfolio using the investment strategy and invest an additional $500 each month. This strategy has averaged a return of 16.10% over the past 20 years.“
The best long term investment strategies utilize investing factors such as value, dividend, quality, size, or volatility. Factor investing involves selecting stocks based on the characteristics which best explain returns. The benefits of factor investing include risk management, diversification and outperformance. Some sample investment strategies are Superior and Steady Stocks, The Stable Dividend, Microcap Momentum.
