StarMine Smart Holdings Model

An overview of StarMine Smart Holdings Model

The StarMine Smart Holdings Model (SH) is a global stock selection model that ranks stocks based on the expected future increase or decrease, in institutional ownership. The underlying hypothesis of the model is that institutions show a high conviction in buying companies with particular characteristics, where these characteristics are fundamental factors such as price/earnings and debt/equity ratios.

At the core of the model is an algorithm that reverse engineers each fund's purchasing profile based on the underlying fundamental factors of the companies a fund is buying. Once we have the purchasing profile of each fund, we compare the fundamental factors of every stock globally to each fund's purchasing profile to determine the alignment between the stock and the fund. We then aggregate the results across all funds and rank each stock based on the collective appeal or demand for it relative to all other stocks by region.
