03/02/2017 7:00 am EST
With the stock breaking out to new highs yesterday, and 11 Alpha Algorithm strategies betting on the company, I am recommending that you re-enter this position.
Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Menlo Park, California, Facebook operates the world’s largest social networking site, with over one billion daily active users. Its solutions include Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp Messenger and Oculus virtual reality technology.
Eleven top strategies among the investment strategies we monitor are currently betting on Facebook.
Hedge Fund Alpha
Based on publicly available disclosures, successful hedge fund managers are investing in the stock.
Hedge Fund Gurus
The stock is one of the top U.S.-listed equity positions reported on Form 13F by select hedge funds with concentrated top holdings.
Goldman Sachs’ Active Beta
The stock is selected according to four factors -- value, quality, momentum and low volatility. These, in turn, are based on criteria including book value, sales and cash flow scaled by share price, profit/assets or return on equity (ROE), risk-adjusted returns and daily standard deviation of returns.
Selected using a multi-factor modeling approach, this is a value stock designed to enhance portfolio risk/return characteristics.
The strategy tracks a market-cap-weighted index of the 100 largest U.S. initial public offerings (IPOs) over the first 1,000 trading days of each stock. Stocks must pass additional quantitative screens as well.
The stock also is one of the top 120 large- and mid-cap U.S. stocks exhibiting relatively higher price momentum, as measured by a specific factor which has historically driven a significant part of companies’ risk and return.
The stock is among the top 50 large-capitalization U.S. growth stocks generated through a rigorous 10-factor fundamental screening process.
The company is part of a strategy that selects companies from the S&P 500 Index, based on three growth factors: current internal growth rate, historical earnings per share (EPS) growth and historical sales/share growth.
The stock is part of a major hedge fund’s systematic strategy that invests in large- and mid-cap U.S. companies with positive momentum and that rank in the top third of total return over the prior 12 months, excluding the last month.
IBD Top 50
The company is a Top 50 stock based on Investor’s Business Daily’s proprietary trading formula to identify 50 stocks that meet one of seven different catalysts. The “CAN SLIM” strategy identifies companies with either fundamental (improving earnings or new product) or technical (upward stock move on strong volume) catalysts.
Market Legend’s Pick
The stock is part of a strategy that replicates methods of a handful of legendary investors using 20-plus models built on fundamental valuation metrics, rather than technical factors.
