Gurus Look North with New "Validea Canada" Site

Warren Buffett may have talked up Chinese companies during his recent visit to the Asian power, but Validea CEO John Reese says you don’t have to go that far to find some nice Buffett-style buys.

“China certainly offers many good investment options, but Mr. Buffett shouldn’t overlook opportunities closer to home,” Reese writes in his latest article for Canada’s Globe and Mail. “While the Guru Strategy computer model I base on his approach has been high on a few Chinese stocks recently, it’s also finding a number of values right here in Canada.”

Reese identifies these Buffett-type bargains using his newly launched Validea Canada web site. The site allows users to analyze more than a thousand securities trading on Canadian exchanges using the same “Guru Strategies” Reese uses to analyze U.S. stocks on In addition to his Buffett-inspired model, the Canada site offers strategies based on the approaches of such investing greats as Benjamin Graham, Martin Zweig, Peter Lynch, David Dreman, John Neff, and James O’Shaughnessy.

Like its U.S. counterpart, Validea Canada allows users to see how a particular stock stacks up against each of these guru-inspired strategies; screen for stocks that meet one or multiple Guru Strategies; track model portfolios that are based on one particular guru’s approach, or that use a blend of different strategies; and perform custom screens that allow you to find Guru Strategy-approved stocks that meet your own financial/industry requirements.
