The Stingy News Weekly (02/07/2015)
Stingy News Flash
With the view that it is occasionally good for old dogs to try new tricks, I launched two new initiatives this week.
First, I'm trying my hand at making YouTube videos in an effort to improve by doing. (A great deal of improvement is required on this front!) My first two offerings are linked below.
Second, after some persuasion, I've decided to offer an email subscription service for The Stingy News Weekly. For only $5 plus tax I'll send you the weeklies by email for a year. You can sign up via this link. Rest assured, the service is entirely optional and the letter will still be posted online for free.

Low-cost investing wins over the long-term
"The lesson here is that active investors should be mindful of the costs they face. I'm not saying they should give up on stock picking and buy indexes instead. (Mind you, that would be a good option for many investors.) I am saying that it's important for all investors to try to reduce investment fees and costs where possible."
How Taxes Can Impact Your Investments

Piotroski F-Score backtest
"This backtest for Piotroski F-Score reveals that the first quintile underperforms the S&P 500 Equal Weight Index benchmark. These companies typically weak balance sheets and weak earnings performance so it is not surprising that stock returns for these companies would underperform. The second through fifth quintiles have higher than average annual excess returns than each of the previous quintiles. I like that there was a consistent linear trend upwards from the 1st to 5th quintiles. The Piotroski F-Score does appear to be a powerful fundamental predictor of 1-year stock performance." [Value Investing]
"These types of stocks have at least two advantages. First, well, they're neglected and underappreciated, which means investors have low expectations for them. Second, they often have depressed prices, which makes for a potentially favorable starting point." [Indexing]
