Resource description

Six months ago, we invested in a portfolio of 24 stocks that we expected to beat the market using methodology outlined in the Review of Financial Studies. The list of the stocks was posted in April 2009 on the INSEAD knowledge website. Our methodology essentially involves buying shares of US-listed companies that announce open market share buyback programmes, and where it appears that the buyback is driven by the fact that the management believes its shares are undervalued.
