I gave up on MFI many years ago. First off, backtests that I and other people ran did not come anywhere close to what he claimed in the book. IIRC, my backtest showed only half what was claimed.

Second off, it never did very well in the time I did it. In fact, it kept picking a couple of loser stocks, month after month the same 2 dogs....as they went down and down.
