Morgan Stanley’s equity strategy team led by Adam Parker just published their list of five most favoured and five least favoured growth stocks based on their “quantamental” model.  This model blends both quantitative and fundamental analysis.Parker expands:

The screens are based on our quantitative frameworks and our fundamental analysts’ recommendations. We have been able to show that when a Morgan Stanley analyst has fundamental conviction on a stock and our quantitative models agree, the subsequent performance is superior to either discipline alone.

Parker’s team screened 1,500 U.S. stocks to come up with this list.

We start with the five most favoured.
