I500 five-star methodology

Investment strategist Norm Rothery uses a combination of momentum and value investing methods to rate the Investor 500 stocks. Stocks that emerge from the process with five stars are interesting due to their strong momentum and fair value while those with few stars combine rich valuations with slumping prices. Empty stars are zero ratings. NR stocks were not rated because they were penny stocks or junior firms with small P/S ratios. Check out this interview.
