Standpoint Research is in effect a one-man operation run by Ronnie Moas. Although Ronnie does have a few assistants — all with MBA/CFA designation — he has made (and is responsible for) every one of the more than 900 recommendations issued via Standpoint Research since 2004. Ronnie is also the only person who has ever had access to the 155-variable model he developed (1998-2003). That model generates ideas — recommendations are made only after the computer model generated ideas pass heavy fundamental and subjective overlays.
In the screenshots below you will see Ronnie receiving an award from the Investorside Research Association for his four-year track record through December 31, 2008. Below there, you will find screenshots showing Ronnie and his top ranking for performance since 2009 and through 2016. Since 2008, all of the more than 600 recommendations Ronnie issued were time-stamped by Yahoo! Finance, Dow Jones and Bloomberg newswires.
Since 2004, Ronnie beat the S&P-500 by at least 500 bps with 66% of his recommendations – no firm has been able to match that accuracy. Also impressive is the fact he reached this mark without taking many sector, market capitalization or directional bets. There are some analysts and professionals in the industry with a higher accuracy but that is because most (or all) of their recommendations came from the same (outperforming) sector and/or they had a statistically insignificant sample size of data from which to draw a fair conclusion.
Historically, Standpoint Research has been with 55-70 open recommendations during over-bought market conditions and 80-95 open recommendations during over-sold conditions. In recent years, approximately 20% of our recommendations were with ADR status – International names (from Russia, Colombia, India, Canada, Israel, Germany, South Korea, China and Brazil) that trade on the NASDAQ and NYSE.
Ronnie has an excellent reputation and track record with no conflicts of interest and has given more than 50 television, newspaper, magazine and radio interviews in recent years.
