The SGI European Quality Ex-Overvalued Index is based on a 5 step selection methodology applied to the shares comprising the Stoxx Europe 600 Index, corrected from stocks with an average daily volume below 3 millions euros. The stocks are ranked according to their value (valuation ratios: PB, PE, FY 1 PE, EVEBITDA, PFCF) and their quality (Piotroski score, Merton's Distance to default) scorings. Quality scoring weighs for 5/7 and value scoring weighs for 2/7. 120 high quality stocks avoiding the most expensive ones are selected and equally weighted in the index. The rebalancing frequency is quarterly, smoothed on 5-business days.
