Over the years, we have realized that Rivkin Investors have been using ASX Momentum and ASX Value strategies together to have a growth portfolio with a similar return profile but lower short term volatility than the individual strategies. As a result, starting from November 2020, we have aligned these 2 strategies re-balance dates set up a 14 stock portfolio to make it easier for our members to implement.
The ASX Momentum strategy is based purely on the performance of the stock’s share price, whereby we hold the stocks that have been performing the strongest over the prior six to 12 months. On the other hand, the ASX Value strategy sources a pool of 30 stocks from the ASX200 based on two key financial metrics, being Return on Capital Employed (ROCE), and Accrual to Assets, from which the final portfolio is generated by ranking on dividend yield, whereby the lower the yield, the higher the ranking.
In general terms, Value uses fundamental factors, while the Momentum strategy uses technical factors. If you want to know about individual strategies and how they work, please use the following links.

How To Follow this Portfolio
To follow the ASX Growth portfolio, investors need to buy the stocks in the above table in equal weights. Weights can drift over time as stock prices move, but we only recommend re-balancing stock weights if they stray too far from the target weight. The stock volumes shown in this table are based on a $5,000 investment per stock.
Once per month, the list of stocks will be updated in what we call a ‘re-balance’. This means investors will need to look at the new list and sell any stocks that are no longer on the list. After these stocks are sold, the new stocks from the current table can be bought.
Please note that the underlining strategies remain unchanged and those members who wish to continue to follow the 10 stock portfolios, can consult the strategies at any time.
