For those of you who missed the essay:

THE GROWTH PORTFOLIO POWERING AWAY.
Written by: Robert and Russell Markham  (22 February 2019).

I originally wrote about the Growth portfolio back in the VectorVest Essay on 29 December 2017. If you have not already done so, you may wish to check out the Essay.

The Growth Portfolio is doing exactly what it is designed to do, find growth stocks in favourable market conditions and protect you in the down markets. The portfolio re-balanced itself in November 2018 through to January 2019 as the market corrected and stop-losses were triggered.

Since then, the Growth Portfolio has loaded up on growth stocks in January and February this year with some of the recent acquisitions include:

01 Feb, TPW.AX: – As of 20 Feb: 4.45%
22 Jan, CCX.AX: – As of 20 Feb: 39.64%
11 Jan, NEA.AX: – As of 20 Feb: 44.93%
10 Jan, RHP.AX: – As of 20 Feb: 24.19%

The Growth Portfolio makes use of the Southern Comfort/AU search, housed in the Searches – Precision Trading group in the UniSearch tool. As this name implies, the search is after smooth and steady performing stocks. This search is looking for stocks between $1 and $5 and finds those stocks that are ranked in the top 50 VST stocks, with at least 50,000 trades a day on average. The stocks are then sorted by Comfort Index (CI) DESC, to ensure the smoothest left to right stocks that meet the above criteria are identified.

Back in the VectorVest Essay on 29 December 2017, I noted that the portfolio was up 319.62%. As of 20 February, the returns are now 411.62% since 2012. If you click on Reports and then select Summary Report, note that the Gain/Loss (YTD) is 18.28%.

This is another Portfolio that has got off to a great start for 2019. Is the Growth Portfolio just days away from hitting another all-time high? Chances are by the time you read this, the Growth Portfolio has already hit a new all-time high!

  1. Good morning Gentlemen,
    Could you please let me know what ‘Stop’ criteria’s is used in the growth portfolio?
    I get the impression that the lack of a more effective available Stop mechanism, is one of the weakest strengths of the V V process, in what is an outstanding program.
    We have been requesting a MA crossover alternative for the Back tester over many years. Do you have any thoughts on this.
    Kind Regards. Vic

    1. Hi Vic,

      Thanks for your question. The Growth Portfolio uses a 11% trading stop loss. I would never have guessed such a stop loss works best without VectorVest. The combination of the fundamental and technical parameters along with risk and money management rules brings about the trading stop as one of the strongest contenders. The quickest way to find the settings per the Portfolio Tab, click on the Growth Portfolio and then click on the details button. This will then list all the settings (per the far right upper part of the screen). Although you can get the MA crossovers on graphs, we do not currently offer the MA crossovers as part of BackTesting stop losses. The 13 Stop losses we offer in BackTesting however is very detailed and we are always working to add to this this further. For myself, I find that RT, VST, %Gain/(Loss), Average True Range, Trailing Stop Loss, Trading Stop…. is more than enough to produce some very powerful results. One thought, the Profit Locker Pro is an amazing stop loss system, you have a significant amount of flexibility to design and stress test a custom designed stop loss. I have not seen this anywhere else. You could have a look if you are interested and give the trial a go: https://www.vectorvest.com/profitlocker-pro/

      Regards,

      Russell.
