How successful are the StarMine models?

The numbers tell the story: StarMine has a long and proven track record in successful predictive modeling – both short- and long-term, with on going performance reporting. We leverage factors that others overlook – and the result is simple: better Alpha generation.

Clear-box design is transparent and customizable

While our models perform well as formulated, they’re designed so you can see – and understand – the underlying analytics. You can use the final model ranks or the underlying component ranks as part of your quantitative process or use them to test your own hypotheses.

Discover more profitable opportunities

Today, no one can sit back and react to the market. You have to reliably predict what the market will do, where it’s headed, where the gaps fall and when the trends start. StarMine gives you a unique, proven way to see and seize these opportunities – often ahead of other market participants.
