We measure all indices based on Price/Book, Price/Earnings, and Price/Cash flow to determine a value score. We then measure all indices based on 12 month return – 1 month return to determine a momentum score.
We determine strength of signal by a z-score, which defines the variability of the score from the mean of the sample group.
We run a diversified portfolio representing 80% or more of the investable universe of equity securities.
We close positions when we desire to be underweight a larger index. For example, to be underweight healthcare sectors, the managers may hold a larger US equity index ETFs and various other sector ETF, but no healthcare ETF.

Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".
Average client returns are calculated by Covestor and are composed of the average, time-weighted returns of all active client investments (some of which may contain investment restrictions) to the underlying portfolio. These daily average returns are then linked together for the timeframe presented. These returns include cash, dividends, earnings distributions, brokerage commissions and Covestor advisory fees.
