UBA is currently in a up trend. Over the last three months trading long signals has not been a profitable strategy for UBA's investors in general. However, this strategy had significantly lower risk when compared to Buy-and-Hold investing (which returned -1.62%). It is therefore better to tread with caution in the current uptrend by limiting your allocation to UBA.


UBA has been outperforming the SP500 index in recent time. Over the last 2 years 11 months and 9 days, UBA underperformed the SP500 index on 44% days. Which indicates that on days UBA underperforms the SP500 index, it's performance is marginally worse than on the days it outperforms the SP500 index.

"Based on my own personal experience - both as an investor in recent years and an expert witness in years past - rarely do more than three or four variables really count. Everything else is noise.

UBA is becoming more volatile overall. In comparison, the SP500 index is seeing a rise in volatility. During the last three months, there was a significant surge in UBA's volatility from 29 Nov, 2018 to 6 Dec, 2018. While there was a significant surge in the SP500 index's volatility from 25 Sep, 2018 to 29 Oct, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that UBA has significant positive skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors can expect UBA to recover from drawdowns quickly. Which makes UBA a good candidate for investing on short-term bullish trends or even counter-trends hoping for a pull-back.

UBA has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, UBA must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than UBA.

Based on your interest in UBA you may find it interesting to know that SQ and TWTR are both mid caps that have shown remarkable performance and deserve to be on every investors' watchlist.
