The 22 names in the portfolio as a group are outpacing the value components of the Russell 2000 and Russell Microcap indices.
Despite disappointing performance this year, the strategy has shown solid return in the past.
It was not a great year for this value portfolio, with only 5 stocks in positive territory for the year.
This mix of 20 deep-value names was outperforming a couple Russell indices three months back but is trailing them now.
Fossil Group has done most of the heavy lifting among the small stocks in the portfolio, though there are other winners, too.
FOSL is up 92% since I launched this group, while HIBB is ahead 27%.
It is always important see how such value screens perform in times of market stress.
One month in, 15 out of 20 names are in positive territory, with Fossil Group soaring 39%.
The 20 companies in this portfolio could be of interest to deep-value investors.
Overall it was a good year for this somewhat off the wall screen that I developed several years ago as a way to find seemingly cheap companies.
Electro Scientific Industries leads a parade of value stocks that have performed quite nicely in a growth-oriented market.
Despite the disparity this year between growth and value, my 2017 Double Net Value Portfolio is not struggling.
An eclectic mix of 20 companies made my cut of stocks trading at 1x to 2x net current asset value.
