Braintree, MA - August 4, 2014
Stock Rover’s Portfolio Modeling feature was recently featured in Barron’s Electronic Investor column. Released as part of Version 4.4 in June 2014, Portfolio Modeling allows Stock Rover users to create alternative or “model” versions of a portfolio to see how it would have been affected by certain trades in a number of measures. Writes Barron’s columnist Mike Hogan: “Basically, it’s back-testing, a simulation run on a historical stock database to see how one or more securities might have fared under a particular investing strategy.” The Portfolio Modeling window is accessible by all Stock Rover users, although only Premium users can save their models to return to them later.
Hogan praises Stock Rover’s Portfolio Modeling for being both user-friendly and powerful: “It’s one of those high-ticket, heavy-lifting techniques hedge funds use, but packaged and priced for individual investors. Stock Rover’s iteration is remarkable for its ease of use, responsiveness, and flexibility in choosing testing periods.”
He also briefly mentions Stock Rover’s related Premium features, Portfolio Analytics and Quant Screening, as well as the Investors’ Library, where all Stock Rover users can access a range of sample portfolios to test.
