Aim for higher returns. It all starts with better data on your desktop.

Companies in multiple industries are leveraging new sources of data to deliver better products and services to their clients. In our industry today, we see some of the world’s top money managers using alternative data streams to elevate their investment decisions. We are one of these streams. And the data that we would deliver to you is based on an alternative methodology for quantifying risk.

CSD's quintile stock ranking system encompasses 5 categories: top, good, sic (short sale), neg (negative), and zero.
Crystal Shore Dashboards' GTAsia dashboard showing the risk scores of the 10 biggest Asian stocks such as Tencent Holding.

The alpha is in the delta. And the numbers don't lie.

We use a Quintile Ranking to score 1200 stocks in Asia and EM. 1st Quintile stocks are the best. 5th Quintile stocks are the worst. If our stock rankings were random, then the overall performance delivery of our 5 quintiles would be roughly the same. But as it turns out, our top quintile stocks outperform our lower quintile stocks. This is the value –the alpha– that we bring to you and your team every week.

1200 Stocks

Analyzed, evaluated and ranked. Every week.

Expand your investment universe.

Find your needle. In our haystack.

You should focus your analytical skills on the most promising opportunities available. So that would be our 1st Quintile stocks in our most favored markets. It’s striking: even a randomly selected portfolio of such stocks already outperforms the broad market. But if you and your team can further narrow the field, then that should take your performance delivery next level.

Expand your universeIt's a mind-blowing experience.

A skilled money manager with a large universe of stocks to choose from will outperform an equally skilled manager with just a small number of stocks to choose from. So size matters. And this underpins two of our key objectives: (1) expanding your opportunity set. And then (2) ranking all of these stocks from top to bottom. Which brings us to the next point:

Expand your investment universe.

Always double-check. Before you pull the trigger.

So all your analysis converges on buying Company X? Great stuff. But before you pull the trigger: check out our ranking of this company. Is it Top Quintile? Super. Do we rate it poorly? Then it’s worth revisiting your analysis. Still convinced it’s a screaming buy? Well, if only from a timing point of view: wait for our ranking to improve before sending in the BUY order.

Cutting your losses is hard. But not doing so is painful.

When you buy a stock and it goes down in value, right then and there, something has gone very wrong. But still: it’s hard to cut one’s losses. And of course: the stock is now even cheaper than when you bought it. So should I sell or should I hold? We can help you square this circle with a frank assessment of your stock’s return expectations going forward. As a general rule, our systems will move on from losing positions at speed and with ease.
