MoneyWorks4Me evaluates and ranks mutual funds based on the following data-driven system:

  1. Consistency of performance: This is a measure based on whether the fund has consistently beaten the benchmark index. To do this, we compare the fund’s 3-year rolling returns with the benchmark index over a minimum of 5 years and preferably 10 years. The rollover period is one month and the holding period is 3 years. Funds are colored green in terms of performance when the fund beats the benchmark more than 90% of the time. He is Orange if he bats 80-90% of the time and Red if he bats less than 80%. Funds with data for less than 5 years are colored gray.
  2. Quality of portfolio holding: Moneyworks4Me offers stocks colored green, orange and red based on whether the company’s performance has generated ROCE above a threshold (cost of capital) over 10 years (minimum 6 years) and generated positive free cash flow. For banks, it checks if the ROE is above 15% and if sales have increased compared to the previous year. Stocks that perform consistently on these combined measures are colored green (minimum score of 14 out of 20), orange (between 8 and 14), and red (less than 8 out of 20).
  3. Funds are colored green provided the portfolio holds 70% green stocks but no more than 20% red stocks. Funds with more than 20% red stocks in the portfolio are colored red. The rest are Orange funds

Ranking of funds in filters: Consistency and quality of performance are two parameters used to rank funds for SIP. The classification is as follows: GG, GO, GR, OG, OO, OR, RG, RO and RR.

With the same color-coded funds, the one with the highest 3-year rolling average returns (over 5-10 years), the number that appears in the Performance label, ranks higher.

Here is the summary :

The third Upside Potential tag is not relevant for SIP. It is relevant for lump sum investments in mutual funds.
