What exactly is the Technical rank?
The Technical rank uses a stock’s price performance over the past year to predict short-term (three to six month) future returns and ranks each stock in our 1,700-company universe against each other. There are no other factors incorporated into the model. While our Technical rank does contribute to investment decisions, we would like to stress that our primary investment advice is based on our successful time-proven Timeliness Ranking System. The Technical rank is best used as a secondary investment criterion.
