May 17, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- Data detailed on Analytical Finance have been presented. According to news reporting originating in Boston, Massachusetts, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Low-risk stocks have offered a combination of relatively low risk and high returns. We decomposed the low-risk anomaly into micro and macro components."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "The micro component comes from the selection of low-beta stocks. The macro component comes from the selection of low-beta countries or industries."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Both parts contribute to the anomaly, with important implications for the construction of managed-volatility portfolios."
