How To Invest During A Weak Market?

Market has been moving on a downward trend. So how has your portfolio been doing?

If your portfolio is down more than 3%, you will have been better off investing in the STI ETF.

On the other hand, you may have exited many of your positions and will like to invest in companies that could probably be the fastest to rise back. You will be looking for companies that will be able to produce a “V” shape recovery and not a “U” shape recovery.

Being the scorecard creators, Simple Investor and I had continued to create our 3rd Scorecard – The Moat Scorecard (yes, I am repeating…).

We believe that a company with a strong moat will be able to withstand the volatility of our current market and even if its shares are on a downward trend, it will probably provide the investor with a “V” shape recovery.

For this post, I will not be repeating what about what the Moat Scorecard can do. But I will like to highlight on the backtesting we had done for this scorecard.

Moat Score against Total Returns for 3 Year Holding Period

Moat Score against Total Returns for 5 Year Holding Period

Through the graphs, you can see that if you invest in company with a Moat Score of 60 to 80, you will be getting a decent return of 25% to over 50% based on either a 3 years holding period or a 5 years holding period.

Average Return vs Moat Score
Furthermore, we have plotted the Average Return vs the Moat Score along with the removal of outliers that skews the data. 

It seems like holding a company with a 80 to 90 Moat Score for 5 years will potentially give you a very good return of over 200%.

Thus, if you wish to know more about the Moat Scorecard, Simple Investor and I will actually be conducting a workshop on it.

The details of this investing workshop is as follows: -
