15 Singapore Shares That Could Go on to Crush the Market in October 2018 and Beyond

This article reveals the top 15 shares that emerged from a screen based on the Magic Formula investing strategy that was developed by investor Joel Greenblatt. The strategy was outlined in Greenblatt’s investing book, The Little Book That Beats The Market.

The Magic Formula works by ranking stocks according to their cheapness and their quality. Investors must then hold a basket of highly-ranked stocks for a year before repeating the ranking process to create a new basket of stocks. For those who wish to know the metrics that are used for the screen, you can head to another article here.

The Motley Fool Singapore was invited to a briefing for the ETF’s launch and what we learnt during the event is discussed in the article.
