Sequential optimizing investing strategy with neural networks  [PDF]
Ryo Adachi,Akimichi Takemura
Quantitative Finance , 2010,
Abstract: In this paper we propose an investing strategy based on neural network models combined with ideas from game-theoretic probability of Shafer and Vovk. Our proposed strategy uses parameter values of a neural network with the best performance until the previous round (trading day) for deciding the investment in the current round. We compare performance of our proposed strategy with various strategies including a strategy based on supervised neural network models and show that our procedure is competitive with other strategies.
Antagonism and Mutual Dependency. Critial Models of Performance and “Piano Interpretation Schools”  [cached]
Rui Cruz,Sofia Louren?o
Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts , 2011, DOI: 10.7559/citarj.v3i1.30
Abstract: To polarize and, coincidently, intersect two different concepts, in terms of a distinction/analogy between “piano interpretation schools” and “critical models” is the aim of this paper. The former, with its prior connotations of both empiricism and dogmatism and not directly shaped by aesthetic criteria or interpretational ideals, depends mainly on the aural and oral tradition as well the teacher-student legacy; the latter employs ideally the generic criteria of interpretativeness, which can be measured in accordance to an aesthetic formula and can include features such as non-obviousness, inferentially, lack of consensus, concern with meaning or significance, concern with structure or design, etc. The relative autonomy of the former is a challenge to the latter, which embraces the range of perspectives available in the horizon of the history of ideas about music and interpretation. The effort of recognizing models of criticism within musical interpretation creates the vehicle for new understandings of the nature and the historical development of Western classical piano performance, promoting also the production of quality critical argument and the communication of key performance tendencies and styles.
Belief and Investing: Preferences and Attitudes of the Faithful
Mark Brimble1,Victoria Vyvyan,Chew Ng
Australasian Accounting Business and Finance Journal , 2013,
Abstract: This Australian study seeks to better understand the disparity between the positive attitudes towards Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) and the level of investment in SRI (Saulwick &Associates 2001; Watmore & Bradley 2001; Williams 2007; Arjalies 2010), by examining both the attitudes to SRI and the investment choices that are made. It is hypothesised that those who are more committed to religious belief principles are more likely to invest in SRI.To test this 322 people from two large Queensland organisations were surveyed in relation to their investment attitudes and preferences. Results show that those who are more religious are no more likely to invest in SRI, and that the level of importance placed on SRI and financial criteria are similar in most instances for the more and less religious. In addition, women who are religious place more importance on conservative general investment criteria than less ornon-religious women.

Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The P/E ratio is often used as a metric of investment in equities as Price-earnings is one of the style of investing which is used in picking value stocks in India as well as other parts of world. But so far no concrete research has been shown that Kisor P/E style of investing is yielding good return especially in Indian context. This fact has come to our notice by the review of earlier studies. To examine its effectiveness, we applied Kisor model to Nifty 50 Index over a period of 5 years (2006 to 2011). Our study proves the fact that, Kisor P/E Style of investing yield superior return over a study period.Hence, this study identifies Kisor P/E as one of the better stock picking strategy for retail investing class as it is one of the better valuation measures to identify the undervalued stocks in the Indian Equity market.

Slovak Journal of Civil Engineering , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10189-010-0001-9
Abstract: For institutional and private investors, investing in real estate represents an attractive form of the consignment of their money. Real estate provides a regular source of income in the form of the rent from or interest on the credit provided. At the same time, real estate is a good investment instrument, because it provides diversified contributions and security against inflation for investors. In their efforts to diversify risk, investors are expressing growing interest in investing in the whole European Union. The success of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) in the U.S. also opened the door for investing in this market for small investors, which is the reason for the development of this type of investment company in the European arena. One problem concerning the development of European real estate investment funds is the unsolved issue of the harmonization of the legislation and regulatory safety measures, which would enable the creation of a common market for new investment products in Europe.

International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1479-5868-9-80
Abstract: A low-income school district volunteered for participation in the study. All schools in the district agreed to participate (elementary?=?6, middle school?=?2) and were randomly assigned within school type to intervention (n?=?4) and control (n =4) conditions following a baseline environmental audit year. Intervention goals were to 1) eliminate unhealthy foods and beverages on campus, 2) develop nutrition services as the main source on campus for healthful eating (HE), and 3) promote school staff modeling of HE. Schools were followed across a baseline year and two intervention years. Longitudinal assessment of height and weight was conducted with second, third, and sixth grade children. Behavioral observation of the nutrition environment was used to index the amount of outside foods and beverages on campuses. Observations were made monthly in each targeted school environment and findings were presented as items per child per week.From an eligible 827 second, third, and sixth grade students, baseline height and weight were collected for 444 second and third grade and 135 sixth grade students (51% reach). Data were available for 73% of these enrolled students at the end of three years. Intervention school outside food and beverage items per child per week decreased over time and control school outside food and beverage items increased over time. The effects were especially pronounced for unhealthy foods and beverage items. Changes in rates of obesity for intervention school (28% baseline, 27%?year 1, 30%?year 2) were similar to those seen for control school (22% baseline, 22%?year 1, 25%?year 2) children.Healthy ONES adaptation of IHI’s rapid improvement process provided a promising model for implementing nutrition policy and environmental changes that can be used in a variety of school settings. This approach may be especially effective in assisting schools to implement the current federally-mandated wellness policies.

Abstract: Value investing has gained popularity as a number of researches showed that various investment strategies based on this concept could generate significantly higher returns than the market. Investment using PEG as a selection rule was developed from the strategy based on P/E ratio. A test was conducted in this study to evaluate whether the investment strategy based on PEG ratio could be applied to the investments in the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Using the data from 1999-2010, the results showed that PEG ratio was effective in generating higher returns than the stock exchange’s total return index throughout the analysis of 12-year research data.

Journal of Economics Theory , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/jeth.2012.42.47
Abstract: Sources of the funds of the Islamic bank are the first starting point towards forming an investing policy of the bank. Therefore, these resources should be studied well so that we can decide the favorability extent of these resources to the different forms of investment. Thus, this research will touch upon the basic sources of funds in the Islamic banks. They are of two kinds: firstly, internal sources which are the rights of the ownership of the bank that include the capital, reserves and retained earnings. Secondly, external ones which are the deposits in the Islamic banks. They are one of the most important resources of the bank ever. They also are considered the main resource that the Islamic bank depends on in most of the investiment operation. Then, the researcher moved to speak about the means of investing funds in the Islamic banks which are represented in establishing direct projects, establishing projects in conjunction with others, financing through partnership, financing through Muraabahah (i.e., selling an object while informing the purchaser of its original price and the profit he is getting in this deal), direct trading, sale of Salam (buying in advance), Mudaarabah (i.e., agreement in which a person gives an amount of money to another person in order to trade with it and the second takes a share in the profit, like a half or a third and the like), sale of Ta jeeri (leasehold) and installment sale. Then, the objectives of investing funds in the Islamic banks have been pointed out. These objectives can be divided into two groups. Fisrtly, the group of the objectives of achieving the self benefit of the Islamic bank which are represented in the objective of profitiability, the objective of safety and the objective of grwoth. Secondly, the group of the objectives of achieving the social benefit such as participating in the plans of development, providing the basic needs of socity and achieving the social solidarity.
Optimally Investing to Reach a Bequest Goal  [PDF]
Erhan Bayraktar,Virginia R. Young
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We determine the optimal strategy for investing in a Black-Scholes market in order to maximize the probability that wealth at death meets a bequest goal $b$. We, thereby, make more objective the goal of maximizing expected utility of death, first considered in a continuous-time framework by Merton (1969). Specifically, instead of requiring the individual to choose a utility function, we only require the individual to choose a bequest goal $b$. We learn that, for wealth lying between $0$ and $b$, the optimal investment strategy is {\it independent} of $b$, a surprising result. Therefore, if the individual were to revise her bequest goal, her investment strategy would not change if her wealth is less than the new goal.
