A Message from Validea CEO and Founder, John Reese:

Over the past twelve years, I have been conducting extensive research into quantitative investment strategies. The goal of my research was to find winning strategies that had consistently outperformed the market over the long term, and which the average investor could use in a practical way. What I discovered is that a number of history's greatest investors, including Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, and Benjamin Graham, had made their fortunes by using approaches that were mostly quantitative.

After studying the works of these and other stock market greats, I used my background in computer science and artificial intelligence to develop the sophisticated yet easy-to-use guru-inspired models that power the research and portfolios on, a U.S. based stock research site. And now, for the first time, I have extended that same proven system to Canadian stocks with the launch of On, I offer 14 different investment portfolios (you get access to every one of those!) and tell you exactly what to buy and what to sell. You also get access to my Validea Hot List newsletter and patented stock analysis engine that x-rays over 1000 Canadian securities using each different guru strategy.

Since I launched my U.S. based models in 2003, they have substantially outperformed the market. And now, Canadian investors have access to the same proven market-beating system. Since I started running my models in Canada in 2010, 6 have outperformed the TSX, with 5 of them more than doubling the index.

Here is a summary of how my Canadian models have performed:

Portfolio Based On Return TSX Return Excess Return
Patient Investor Warren Buffett 122.0% 18.2% 103.7%
Momentum Investor Validea 117.3% 18.2% 99.1%
Validea Hot List Validea 93.0% 18.2% 74.8%
Low PE Investor John Neff 72.6% 18.2% 54.4%
Growth/Value Investor James P. O'Shaughnessy 58.5% 18.2% 40.3%
Small-Cap Growth Investor Motley Fool 48.0% 18.2% 29.7%
Top Five Gurus Validea 38.3% 18.2% 20.0%
Value Investor Benjamin Graham 32.8% 18.2% 14.5%
