STEP 2: RANKING COMPANIES

Selected companies are ranked based on sales growth, ROE, stock return in 3 years (2013-2015).

  1. 150 companies are ranked by sector (ICB standards). Each company receives a separate score for each metric based on where it ranks within its sector, then all scores are added up for 3 metrics
  2. (weighting 35% for sales growth, 35% for ROE, 30% for stock return and compile a composite score for each company based on their rankings for sales growth, ROE, stock return).
  3. Select the best companies from each sector.
  4. Exclude companies from the list due to negative sale growth and stock return.
  5. Rank companies by their highest composite score and select Top 50.

Note

Stock return:Total return to investors includes both price appreciation and dividend yield to an investor in the company’s stock. The figures are based on the assumption that the owner sold the stocks at the end of 2015 after holding them for 3 years.It’s calculated based on buying and selling at closing price, including reinvestment of cash dividend on ex-dividend date.
