QVGS ValueScore

Value Cycle Opportunities in the India and U.S. Equities.

Quantamental Value Outlook


The ValueScore Indicator is constructed using Fundamental, Quantitative, and Technical inputs. The indicator is computed quarterly and classifies Indices and Stocks into 6 buckets at a point in time assigning them a score of 0 to 5 as follows:

Deep Discount (0) | Fair Discount (1) | Right Priced (2) | Fairly Expensive (3) | Highly Expensive (4) | Trended (5)

The ValueScore indicator can be applied in 2 ways:

  1. Passive Value
  2. Active Value


The ValueScore indicator is useful for long to medium-term investing.

Typical entries for long positions arise in the Fair & Deep Discount bucket. These can be carried till the Trending bucket is held. A move from the Trended bucket to the Highly Expensive bucket indicates a sell / short position entry.
