Factors Of Higher Returns
Factor Investing – Investment strategy in which securities are chosen based on attributes that are associated with higher returns.
Size: Investing in smaller companies offer higher expected returns than investing in larger companies.
Value: Value companies (low price/book) offer higher expected returns than growth (high price/book) companies.
Profitability: Companies with higher profitability, ratio of book-value to market-value, have higher expected returns.
