If you haven't read What Works on Wall Street: A Guide to the Best-Performing Investment Strategies of All Time by James P. O'Shaughnessy, you should. Using 45 years of S&P Compustat market data and a systematic, fundamental approach, O'Shaughnessy researched the performance of many different investment strategies and concluded that some produced greater returns than the S&P 500 while others produced less.

This type of analysis may sound anything but groundbreaking in our current, digital trading universe but very few studies, if any, have been executed so thoroughly, with such vast data, and with such attention to detail. The two top performing strategies in this book, considered by many as the Bible of investing, are O'Shaughnessy's Cornerstone Growth and Cornerstone Value strategies. These two strategies have consistently yielded strong returns and, not surprisingly, have been used by investment firms, mutual funds, and portfolio managers around the world.
