Josef Lakonishok Screen
A value and momentum screen focused on finding under-valued, out-of-favor companies just at the point when the market is starting to recognise them.
According to Lakonishok, investors have judgmental biases and behavioral weaknesses including the tendency to extrapolate the past too far into the future, to wrongly equate a good company with a good investment irrespective of price, to ignore statistical evidence and to develop a "mindset" about a company. As a result, "value stocks become underpriced and glamour stocks become overpriced relative to their fundamentals".
This screen looks for:
At least one of Price-to-book, price-to-cash-flow, price-earnings or price-to-sales ratios more favourable than the industry
6 Month relative strength above zero
3 month relative strength above zero
