Here's an e-mail I received this morning about a couple of my posts. I tried to clear things up a bit in my answer.
I was amazed to see somebody actually implement one of the AAII screens with real money. Very ingenious of you to combine it with another system, Zacks, and achieve much better results, congrats on a job well done.
The AAII strategy rebalances monthly, have you found weekly outperforms monthly? How much of an impact did the increase in transacation fee have, comparing to monthly rebalance?
Thanks for your interest! I'm still amazed that folks can find my website let alone read it.
I actually might make more if I were to mechanically rebalance each week, but my ego is too large and I want to think that my intellect has something to do with my returns.
Here's another e-mail--
first of all thanks a lot for your blog. I found it very useful and a great source of ideas and your returns obviously speak for themselves !
I am sorry if this is repetitive but i am still not sure how your evaluation/rebalancing process works?
I use AAII screens myself and i understand they change/rebalance on a monthly basis? Although i do not currently subscribe to Zacks my understanding is their ranking system also changes on a monthly basis? Yet in your blog you mention weekly evaluation/rebalancing process?
Both services, however, base their documented returns on monthly rebalancing.
