What does Portfolio Forecast do?
ValuEngine Portfolio Forecast will help you maximize returns in your portfolio
by showing you the best allocation of capital across the stocks in your
list. Many people can pick good stocks but then they ignore the all important
matter of how much of a given amount of capital to invest in each one.
For example, if you have five stocks in your portfolio and invest 20%
of your capital in each one, you'll get one result in a given period of
time. If, however, you vary your allocation of capital to, say, 40% in
one stock, 20% each in two others, 15% in another, and 5% in the last
stock, your result will be very different. You tell Portfolio Forecast what
you want to achieve in terms of future returns, and Portfolio Forecast will
then allocate your capital across your portfolio to give you the best
chance of success.

list. No matter which method you choose, Portfolio Forecast will evaluate

objective box. This choice will lead to a portfolio that minimizes your
potential for loss. When you select the "Moderate" investment objective,

potential gain and minimize your loss potential.
