TOWARDS A SIMPLIFIED CAN SLIM MODEL
AAII.com ranks four stock-picking models by Buffet, Graham, Greenblatt, and O’Neil (CAN SLIM) that consistently outperform the S&P 500. Implementing these models requires complicated procedures an average investor might find challenging. Also, the website does not identify the companies comprising each portfolio or provide statistical analyses. We show how an inexpert investor can easily implement these models. Given that AAII.com ranks CAN SLIM the best, coupled with the observed popularity of this model among practitioners and student investment funds, we offer a simpler version of the model, which consistently outperforms the S&P 500.
