This paper investigates the profitability of a trading strategy based on training a model to identify stocks with high or low predicted returns. A tail set is defined to be a group of stocks whose volatility-adjusted price change is in the highest or lowest quantile, for example the highest or lowest 5%. Each stock is represented by a set of technical and fundamental features computed using CRSP and Compustat data. A classifier is trained on historical tail sets and tested on future data.
