One Commonsense Insight That Can Improve Your Investment Returns

There are tons of theories on how to invest in a manner to maximize returns. Unfortunately, most are just that theories that are NOT backed up by the data. There are also, “data miners” who can back up their theory with data that does not make sense intuitively.

I prefer to approach investing by using theories that are backed up by the data AND have a good common-sense/intuitive explanation.

One theory that has both is the following:

  • Invest in companies that have a track record of producing profitable results.

The “profitability premium” or factor is well-understood, well-documented, AND persistent and pervasive over time.

The linked article shares some background on this valuable insight that, in my opinion, is important to include in an investment strategy. Read the article here.

  • Are you leveraging the Profitability Premium in your investments?

Or could you use some guidance and support applying the “Profitability Premium” approach to your current investment plan?
