First, the disclaimer: my investment strategy may not match yours, so PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS INFORMATION AS TRADING ADVICE. This information is intended strictly for entertainment value.

I created 42stocks.com as a personal project, to help make sense of more than 5,000 stocks that trade on the NASDAQ and NYSE/A stock exchanges. I’ve written an algorithm that analyzes dozens of data points for each symbol reviewed, to create a “weighted” value for that ticker symbol. The algorithm favors near-term “swing” trading, which covers anywhere from one to twelve (or more) weeks. The stocks are bought and sold from within a rollover IRA, so I do not pay taxes on capital gains.

The first tab, labeled “Portfolio,” shows a google spreadsheet that holds all of my trades within the 42stocks portfolio account, going back to March 21st, 2019. I started with an initial cash investment value of $42,000 in a pre-tax rollover IRA account. The spreadsheet shows the dates and values of those trades, and tracks the returns. This account is NOT reflective of my overall investment strategy, nor is it entirely reflective of my own personal holdings.

The second worksheet in the google spreadsheet is labeled “42stocks History” and shows a historical record of my own weekly rank of the top42 stocks.

The google spreadsheet is updated at the end of each trading day, to reflect the next day’s ranks and weighted values (second sheet), and to reflect any pending trades submitted for the open of the next trading session (first sheet).

The additional tabs at the top of the page show charts that reflect the portfolio history, including the stocks that I held during the timeframe of the tab label (“One Week,” “Four Weeks,” etc).

Please enjoy the site, and again, the information presented should be used merely as additional information to help you determine your own investment strategies.
