There was news regarding how the Star Wars failed to wake up the force on Wall Street for Disney. We have a simple answer for that. Even before the release of Star Wars on Dec 18, the Jiseki Ranking was above 80 for Disney. This meant that the force was already with Disney from July 2013. Stocks above 80 are in Growth phase and continue to show momentum for a period of 12-24 months. This is what happened. The momentum force kept the stock up in a perfect linear trend till about July 2015. This meant that the momentum stretched for a period of 24 months. This was when the force awakened on the cinemas and the surprise began. The box office revenue started to break records, while the Jiseki momentum was overstretched and hence the failure and surprise for the force to continue to keep Disney awake. There is, after all a force bigger than the one which comes from Star Wars, it is called the force of reversion. Let us keep an eye on Disney and keep you updated on the war of forces.
Jiseki Cycles are seasonal patterns of growth (strength) or decay (weakness) in variables (assets. They are derived from relative percentile rankings from 1 to 100. 100 is top relative performance and 1 is worst performance. 80-100 group components are referred to as Growth components while 0-20 components are Value components. Though in the short term Growth and Value can continue to trend i.e. Growth can continue to trend up, while Value can continue to drift lower, over the longer term period more than 36 months, Value reverts and changes a trend to relative outperformance while Growth peaks and starts underperforming. The three Jiseki legends illustrate three different periods of ranking.
