U.S. stocks with the metrics that led to the best performance in 2013.
Our friend Craig McGee, senior consultant at Morningstar Canada, analyzed a selection of the most commonly used metrics for stock performance over the year. At the start of each quarter, the best and worst 50 S&P 500 stocks were equally weighted using each metric separately, and he measured the performance of the portfolios. For example, one portfolio would have held the 50 stocks with the lowest P/E ratios and another portfolio would hold 50 stocks with the highest P/E ratios.
