I know our tech crew uses an Accrue (A CRU: Nasdaq) database to generate page-view reports. But before you accuse me of having a leg up, I sold most of these stocks long ago. Maybe because I see the inherent flaws in all of them, or because one of the systems we...

    Abstract According to the Efficient Market Theory, it should be extremely difficult for an investor to develop a 'system' that consistently selects stocks that exhibit higher than normal returns over a period of time. It should also not be possible for a company to 'cook the books' to misrepresent the value of stocks and bonds. An analysis of current literature, however, indicates that companies can and do 'beat the system' and manipulate information to make stocks appear to perform above averag...

    1. Introduction There is still a lot of controversy on the forecasting ability of analysts. On one hand, if markets are efficient in its semi-strong (or even strong) form, in the sense of Fama (1970), there would be no ground for the existence of research departments as it would be impossible to implement a profitable strategy on the basis of the publicly available information. Yet, some authors claim that evidence of analysts' forecasting ability in itself should not be interpreted as a violati...
