The Trading With Cody proprietary WiNR Ratio and WilPOWR Rating algorithms:
After spending more than twenty years developing my approach to investing and trading, I’ve found that each proposed trade/investment (equity, options, cryptocurrencies, crowdfunding, etc) starts with questions like these:
- Why will the trade work?
- What can go wrong?
- What’s the timeframe?
- What’s the best way to play it?
- What’s the downside risk to the trade?
- What’s the potential upside of the trade?
I’ve developed an algorithmic program to help me answer these questions and develop a quantitative, repeatable process doing so. The WiNR Ratio it kicks out estimates the likely annualized returns adjusting for risk/reward.
Likewise, whenever I analyze an equity investment opportunity with a time frame of at least three years, I use several fundamental metrics to get a sense of the company’s valuation:
- Balance sheet
- Projected 2-3 year forward P/E ratio
- Projected 2-3 year topline growth rate
- Dividend yield (if any)
Those inputs, along with other proprietary metrics including ways of measuring a company’s “Revolution Factor” go into an algorithmic system that calculates what I call the WilPOWR Rating. These new programs and the fact that we now have a repeatable, quantifiable, trackable process of analysis, trades and investments in these proprietary systems gives us yet another potential edge for the hedge fund.

Some of Cody’s trading career highlights include:
Launching a tech-centric long/short equity hedge fund on October 1, 2002, just eleven days before the Nasdaq finished its two-year long 75% decline.
Closing his hedge fund on October 1, 2007 to become a national news anchor as he warned of the collapse of the major Wall Street banks and the infrastructure of the hedge fund industry just as the markets topped and subsequently crashed 60% in the next year.
Telling his followers to buy and stay long Apple since March 2003 when the stock was $1 per share to this very day:
Betting Donald Trump Jr that oil would see the $30s before it would see $150s as Cody hosted a nationally-televised two-hour block party on Wall Street in July 2008, as oil was at $130 on its way to $147 before falling all the way to $32 in the ensuing months. The bet? Each of their respective inheritance against each other’s. True story:
Here’s what people and the media are saying about Cody and his stock picks:

“Trading with Cody is a great way for the busy average person to get insights into investing ideas and the market trends early.

“Aside from being a straight shooter he is a solid individual. Over the years that I have been with Cody I feel very comfortable with his understanding of what makes the market tick. What I learned from him is patience, and more importantly that I make decisions of how much to buy and when to sell. I look forward to his commentary and over the years I have not only profited by using his service but appreciate how decent and smart he is.” – Marvin, 2017
