Betting Against the Sell Side – Follow-Up

  • Today the FT has an article covering the subject that we covered in a piece of research in October – the underperformance of “most loved” stocks versus “least loved”.
    • The FT looked at the UK market across all sectors and showed exactly what we showed in the chemical space in the US – that the least loved group outperforms the most loved.
    • Link to FT Article
  • We have looked at the performance of the stocks that we identified back in October and what we showed at the time has continued.
    • The 5 most loved Chemical stocks at the time have underperformed the 5 least loved by 11% on average (in a little over 3 months).
