Components and Factors
The following are the 20 Power Gauge Factors, grouped into 4 top-level categories.
These can be seen by expanding the chart header.
Each Factor starts with a raw value which is normalized for consistency across different types of stocks, then given a 1-100 score reflecting its relative rank within the comparison universe (either the Russell 3000 or the stock’s Industry Group). Factors have been selected for their predictive value and lack of covariance.
Factors are combined with a proprietary weighting system into a raw rating, which is adjusted for strongly trending stocks to arrive at a final Power Gauge Rating.
Note. Factors in the Earnings and Experts Components are based on data from S&P Compustat. Earnings and Estimate values displayed in the Chaikin Analytics application are sourced from S&P.
