Weston, FL (February 18, 2009) – After a brutal 6 month competition, Andrew Horowitz, noted author, podcast host and MSN Money TopStocks contributing blogger, has been named the champion of the 18th round of the Strategy Lab on MSN Money, a stock-picking challenge in which six top traders run mock $100,000 portfolios for six months and document every move they make. Winning by a margin of over 20% over his closest competitor, Horowitz credits his investment strategy of “QuantaFundaTechna,” detailed in his book, for his strong performance.
“QuantaFundaTechna is an investment philosophy that looks to opportunities in the markets based on a top-down philosophy, then confirms investments by a bottom-up fundamental approach,” said Andrew Horowitz, noted financial author and podcast host. “By using this in conjunction with the MSN Money Stock Screener I was able to use a healthy dose of technical analysis to determine exit and entry points.”
“Despite the economic pain of the past few months, Andrew managed to gain 14.5% in a market down 34%,” said Brad Meacham, MSN Money blogs editor. “In the worst market in recent memory, he and the other contributors in the MSN Money Strategy Lab competition have shown readers how to thrive as well as survive.”
