Which Stock Index to Buy

Obermatt measures over 50 of the most important stock indices worldwide to help you evaluate investments in stock indices with financial fact-based research analyses.

Stock Index Research Profile

The research profiles tell you how well each index fits a specific investment strategy. For example, a stock index with a rank of 90 for Growth means it has a high proportion of stocks with growth characteristics. Use the profiles to find the stock indices that have the characteristics that are important for your investment approach.

Stock Index Top 10 Returns

The Top 10 Returns tell you how well the Top 10 Stocks in each index performed for each investment strategy. For example, a rank of 20 on Growth means that the top 10 growth stocks in that index had weak Growth performance during that time period. Use the Top 10 Returns to see how the results the stock indices actually achieved according to the criteria that are important for your investment approach.

The difference between the two

Imagine you are evaluating a football team. You first need to know about the team’s profile: the players, their skills and fitness, the coach, the number of years everyone has been with the team, and other. This is the equivalent of our stock index Research Profile.

The Research Profile is only half the story because of the team and its members doesn’t tell you anything about how the team performed in the past. You also need to know how many wins or losses they have had, how many goals the best players scored, the number of fouls per player, and other key performance data. This is the equivalent of the Top 10 Returns.

Obermatt lets you explore the potential of a stock index - our stock index Research Profile - and learn what that index actually delivered – our stock index Top 10 Returns.
