Dr. Goodman uses a combination of quantitative and fundamental analysis to inform investment strategies. Quantitative analysis involves using mathematical and statistical models to analyze financial data, while fundamental analysis involves examining a company's financial statements and other information to understand its financial health and prospects. By integrating these two approaches, Dr. Goodman is able to consider a range of different factors that may influence the performance of an investment.
Dr. Goodman also takes a flexible approach to investing, rotating between different strategies based on market conditions. This means that he is able to adapt the approach to the current state of the market, rather than sticking to a fixed strategy regardless of the circumstances.
In addition to market conditions, Dr. Goodman uses "alpha factors" to help make investment decisions. Alpha factors are variables that may suggest a higher return on an investment compared to a benchmark. Some examples of alpha factors that Dr. Goodman considers include value (the intrinsic worth of an asset), profitability (a company's ability to generate profits), momentum (the tendency of an asset's price to continue moving in the same direction), volatility (the level of fluctuation in an asset's price), and growth (the potential for an asset to increase in value over time). By considering these factors, Dr. Goodman is able to make informed decisions about investments.
