Activision Blizzard  (NAS:ATVI) Mohanram G-Score Explanation

Partha Mohanram is the John H. Watson Chair in Value Investing at Rotman and the Acting Vice-Dean of Research Strategy and Resources.

In 2000, he wrote a research paper called "Separating Winners from Losers Among Low Book-to-Market Stocks Using Financial Statement Analysis".

This paper tests whether a strategy based on financial statement analysis of low book-to-market (growth) stocks is successful in differentiating between winners and losers in terms of future stock performance. Based on the research, a strategy based on buying high G-score (6, 7 or 8) firms and shorting low G-score (0 or 1) firms consistently earns significant excess returns. Further, the results do not support a risk based explanation for the book-to-market effect as the strategy returns positive returns in all years, and firms that ex-ante appear less risky have better future returns.

To conclude, one can use a modified fundamental analysis strategy (G-score) to identify mispricing and earn substantial abnormal returns.
