Industry Group Breakdown

Chaikin Portfolio Health Check

The Chaikin Power Grid is one of the most powerful tools in the system. Chaikin suggests an approach of holding strong stocks in strong Industries. The Power Grid plots the stocks in your portfolio with Industries you hold listed strongest at top, weakest at bottom, and stocks displayed along the horizontal axis, weakest to strongest, going left to right.

(Note: Not all stocks may be displayed - Neutral stocks or groups may be dropped, and stocks may be dropped if many cluster in the same area of the grid.)

Our backtesting has shown that stocks in the green Upper Right quadrant (Strong Stocks, Strong Groups), have a significantly higher chance of outperforming stocks in the lower right quadrant (Weak Stocks, Weak Groups), and the market as a whole.

Potential Swaps

Chaikin Portfolio Health Check

Once you’ve seen the breakdown of your holdings in terms of stock and Industry strength, you may choose to make some adjustments.

Assuming you like the particular Industries you are in, this section selects 3 of your Bearish holdings and suggests stronger stocks within the same Industry (which also pass some similarity checks).

If you would like to rebalance your industry allocation, The bottom section calls out the 3 most Bearish industries you are in and lists the 3 most Bullish industries in the Chaikin system.
