  • Today, hedge funds and private investors have been able to persistently generate tremendous returns by utilizing AI in their trading.
  • Algo-trading is a great way to enhance informed human decision-making and optimize the investment strategy.

Value Investing

Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor is a book heralded by many, including Warren Buffett, as the best book on investing that has ever been written. The book covers the history of the stock market in the United States and discusses why so many people fail to make money. Buffett, who has achieved a 20.9% annualized gain from 1964 to 2017, practices the theory of “value investing” that was taught to him by Graham.

Ford Stock News: A Fundamental And Algorithmic Analysis Of Why Ford Is Bullish In The Long Term


  • Ford has had a rough year because of setbacksford that were largely out of their control.
  • Market factors are aligning to help the auto industry have its best year in a decade.
  • Ford has effectively cut costs and improved their product to thrive in the future.
  • I Know First’s algorithm is very bullish for the company in the long term.
Investors in Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) have had a bumpy year, with many stock price fluctuations including a couple of significant drops. The stock price hit a low point on October 13th, having lost 12.25% of its value since the beginning of the year.
