The Optimize function (the “Optimizer”) available on this site is an Investment Analysis Tool as described in FINRA Rule 2214. The disclosure in this section are made in accordance with this Rule.
8.1 The Optimizer is broadly based upon the mean-variance optimization method of portfolio construction as first developed by Harry Markowitz in 1952. Dr. Markowitz won a Nobel Prize in Economics for this work. In this mathematical model, the weights of individual assets within a portfolio are determined based upon return targets for each asset, as well as assumptions about the riskiness and correlations of the assets. The portfolio allocation is made such that expected returns are maximized for a given acceptable level of risk.
The Optimizer uses expected returns for stock investments based on price and dividend targets that users have entered or affirmed. These targets can be set by the user or added from other sources, such as friends or well-known experts. The measure of risk for each stock is its expected standard deviation of returns, which the Optimizer models as standard deviation of returns over a recent trailing period. Information on how expected stock returns are related to each other comes from the covariance matrix, which is a mathematical object containing information on how stock prices have moved relative to each other over a recent trailing period.
The user also enters or affirms a conviction level, which indicates how confident the user is that the stock will reach its price target within the specified time horizon. This enables the Optimizer to set the maximum allocation per stock based on both the overall single position allocation constraint and the conviction level. The maximum possible single position allocation is only assigned to stocks for which the user has indicated the highest possible conviction level; lower conviction levels results in linearly decreasing maximum allocations.
Using the risk profile selected by the user, or custom risk settings as made available within the Optimizer interface, the Optimizer indicates the allocation of the user’s selected stocks projected to have the highest expected return subject to this risk constraint. As with individual stocks, risk at the portfolio level is measured in standard deviation of returns.
The user’s price targets, expected dividends and time horizons are the only inputs the Optimizer uses to calculate expected returns. If a time horizon other than annual (12 months) is specified, the Optimizer annualizes the projected return via a standard financial industry calculation, such that all returns can be evaluated by the algorithm on a normalized basis. The Optimizer does not validate quantities used for price targets, expected dividends, or time horizons, and no warranty is given as to their accuracy or appropriateness for this purpose. Poorly chosen price and dividend targets are likely to lead to poor portfolio performance. Historical data is used to calculate standard deviations and covariances; there is no guarantee that past stock market behavior will predict future results in a meaningful or useful way.
The Optimizer’s model approximates the distribution of stock returns as a normal distribution, which may not be accurate and may be especially inaccurate during periods of market turmoil or financial crises. A portfolio generated by the Optimizer may perform substantially worse than any other portfolio, including the one the user held before running the Optimizer. No consideration is given to taxation, which may significantly impact the user’s take-home profits or losses.
If the user has a margin account, the Optimizer may indicate a portfolio that makes use of leverage, an investing technique that can increase gains but also magnify losses. Leverage is not appropriate for all investors. Please consult with an investment professional or other knowledgeable source before employing leverage.
Past returns do not guarantee future results. Investing in stocks is risky; no investment tool can completely eliminate risks, or reliably predict them.
8.2 Results of the Optimizer may vary with each use and over time, even if all user-entered or -affirmed information remains the same. Examples of factors that may cause the results to vary include: levels of market prices, recent moves in market prices, and how asset prices have recently moved in relation to each other.
8.3 Only those stocks selected by the user will be made available to the Optimizer’s algorithm for inclusion in the portfolio. The universe of possible investments from which the user may choose is common stocks, depository receipts, and exchange-traded funds listed on the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, NYSE MKT (formerly known as the American Stock Exchange), and Arca. The Optimizer does not select or exclude any potential investments that meet the above criteria. Stocks not selected by the user for inclusion in the portfolio, and assets other than US-listed stocks, depository receipts, and exchange-traded funds, may have characteristics similar or superior to those that are included in the analysis.
8.4 IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by the Optimizer function regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Information outputted from the Optimizer is not, and is not to be construed as, a recommendation.
Thought Leader ideas are sourced from publicly available information including regulatory filings, which may indicate that a firm held a position in a security on a given date. These positions may have been exited or otherwise modified since that date, or they may be only one part of a more complex investment or hedging strategy. Thought Leader ideas are for informational purposes only. They are not investment recommendations and are not to be construed as such, and are not initiated, approved, or promoted by the corresponding firms or individuals. Unlike user-initiated ideas, Thought Leader ideas are comprised only of a security and a direction (buy or sell) which is based on the direction of the reported position of the corresponding firm on the indicated date. Any price targets that may be displayed in conjunction with Thought Leader ideas are sourced from the professional analyst community and do not reflect the specific price target of the corresponding Thought Leader.
Community Thought Leaders are distinguished Nvstr community members who are compensated for their contributions. They are not employees of Nvstr and their views do not necessarily represent those of Nvstr, its affiliates, or management. Community Thought Leader content is for informational purposes only and is not a recommendation, investment advice, or a research product. Nvstr may edit or remove Community Thought Leader content at any time, and may modify or revoke a member's Community Thought Leader status. Community Thought Leaders may or may not have a long or short position in any given security they post about.
11.1 You may be enrolled in a paid subscription service (“Subscription Service”), in which case, you agree to the following terms, which may be updated by Nvstr at any time and for any reason, without notice.
11.2 Enrollment in the Subscription Service entitles you to limited commission-free trading on the Nvstr Services until the termination of your enrollment. The price for the Subscription Service (the "Subscription Fee"), number of commission-free trades you receive per month, and number of remaining trades, will be indicated to you on the Nvstr website. Any trades in excess of the allotted number of monthly commission-free trades will incur Nvstr’s prevailing commission fee, currently $4.50 per trade. You agree that you must pay any regulatory fees, margin interest, taxes, service fees, and any and all other non-commission fees and charges related to your Nvstr account. Subscription fee payments are for trading services only and do not constitute a payment for investment advice, account management, recommendations, tax advice, or legal advice, none of which is offered by Nvstr.
11.3 You will pay the Subscription Fee, as indicated to you when you sign up and in the Settings section of the Nvstr website. You may be offered a promotional price for the first month of Subscription Service, after which the indicated Subscription Fee will come into effect. You agree to make monthly recurring payments via your credit or debit card of choice, your linked bank account, or directly from your Nvstr account, as applicable, and authorize and direct Nvstr to charge your card, linked bank account, or Nvstr account for such payments. In the event that there is not a sufficient cash balance in your Nvstr account to pay the Subscription Fee, the partial or full Subscription Fee may be charged to your linked bank account and Nvstr may, in its sole discretion, liquidate positions in your Nvstr account to generate sufficient cash to pay the Subscription Fee.
11.4 Subscription Fee will be charged on or around the same day every month as your subscription began, or on the last day of the month, except that your initial payment may be charged up to one week after your subscription began. (For example, if your subscription began on June 15th, your first payment may be around June 22nd, and you will continue to be charged on or around the 15th of subsequent months; if your subscription began on May 31st, your first payment may be around June 7th, and you will be charged on or around the last day of every subsequent month.) Past-due payments may be charged as soon as a sufficient balance is available.
11.5 For subscriptions initiated prior to 12/12/2019: You may cancel your subscription at any time. If you subscribe and then cancel your subscription, you will pay Nvstr’s prevailing commission fee, currently $4.50 per trade, upon the expiration of your subscription at the end of your current subscription month. If you decide to re-subscribe in the future after canceling a subscription, you will be required to pay in advance for 3 months of Subscription Service at the then-prevailing monthly price. If you subscribe and then change your mind, cancel within the first 7 days of payment to receive a full refund, provided that you have not placed any trades since enrolling in Subscription Service. If you cancel your subscription after you have placed trades or more than 7 days have elapsed since your initial payment, you may continue to enjoy unlimited commission-free trading until the end of the currently paid month of service, at which time subscription will terminate. If your initial or any subsequent payment fails, your subscription will be canceled and you will be subject to a 3-month prepayment if you choose to subscribe again.
