Evaluation Report For The Nikkei 225 Stock Universe – Consistently Outperforming Benchmarks

Executive Summary

In this Live Forecast Evaluation Report, we will examine the performance of the forecasts generated by the I Know First AI Algorithm for the Japanese stock market and sent to our customers on a daily basis. Our analysis covers the time period from January 1, 2018 – November 31, 2018. The following results were observed when signal and predictability filters were applied in order to pick the best performing stocks out of the most predictable ones. The main findings for the returns distribution of stock filters (stocks subsets) for the Nikkei 225 universe are outlined below:

Nikkei 225 Highlights:

  • Signal indicator filter applied to Top 30 most predictable stocks provides the highest return of 3.80% for Top 10 stocks on 3-months’ investment horizon.
  • We observe clear increasing trend on returns improving with the increase of forecast time horizon – the change in returns from 1 month to 3 months is more than 1361.5% for Top 10 stocks.
  • Top 10 stocks significantly out-perform both benchmarks, including Nikkei 225 actual performance recorded over the time under consideration, by over 475%.

The common pattern between the forecasts’ performance for the above stock universe is that systematic filtering by both signal and predictability provides the most benefit for long term investments, hence are more suited for private and institutional investors whose primary goal is to systematically identify assets which will provide the most gains of its value going forward in time.

=&0=&is one of the biggest diamond jewelry retailers and is the parent company of many smaller jewelry chains such as Jared, Zales, Kay, and more. On June 6, the I Know First algorithm issued a bullish 14 day forecast for SIG with a signal of 24.00 and a predictability of 0.19. In accordance with the forecast, over the 14 days from June 6 to June 20, the stock price increased by 34.02%.

The stock surged on June 6 after the release of the company’s Q1 2019 earnings report. The company surpassed analyst expectations with revenue of $1.48 billion, a 5.5% YoY increase. This is especially significant because revenue is still growing for the company despite store closures and a difficult diamond retail environment. There are a few factors that contributed to the strong revenue: increased promotions and a calendar shift in timing of Mother’s Day, the increased sales from the acquisition of James Allen, and favorable currency exchange rates. Additionally, in Q1 of last year, many of the company’s subsidiaries had comps down by over 10%. In comparison, this quarter comp sales were only down by 0.1%. In the earnings call, CEO Virginia Drossos explained that the company will face a tougher Q2, but still expects total sales between $5.9 billion and $6.1 billion. On top of this, eCommerce increase by 81% on a reported basis led by James Allen which increased by 29%
