13F filings for the first quarter of 2022 were completed on May 15, so we’ve updated the consensus stock universe of 40 major hedge funds. The change in holdings is visible in trading signals for iM-Top50 (out of 40 major Hedge Funds), see below.

Research by Barclays and Novus published in October 2019 found that a copycat stock-picking strategy that combines conviction and consensus from fund managers who have longer-term views outperformed the S&P 500 by 3.80% on average per year from the first quarter of 2004 to the second quarter of 2019.

Based on this logic, we previously presented two trading models (in Article 1 and Article 2) that use the top 50 consensus stocks of 40 major hedge funds (listed in Appendix A below) , which have historically outperformed the S&P 500. The iM -Top50 model (of 40 hedge funds) holds all 50 stocks equally weighted and has a low turnover rate. The iM-Top10 model (from 40 hedge funds) contains a subset of 10 stocks, also equally weighted, but with higher turnover which is rewarded with improved returns.

Performance simulation and trading signal generation for these strategies are performed using the Portfolio123 platform and reported below. For a more complete description of the 50-stock universe, please refer here.

Note: This update is released on Seeking Alpha, if the publisher allows it, only if the model has generated trading signals.

Note: The iM-Top10VariableWeight model (green line) is an experimental model. It holds the same stocks as the iM-Top10 model, the position weights are adjusted to an inverse function of the market capitalization, i.e. the higher the market capitalization of the stock, the greater the weighting of position is weak. As a result, it is difficult to trade because the market capitalization changes with the stock price.
