Historically the strongest month of the year for stocks, November did not disappoint investors worldwide, with the S&P 500 rallying a solid 8.9% and the NASDAQ Composite outperforming again with a 10.8% gain.

Not only that, but the year-to-date bull market gained significant breath, broadening across different sectors of the market. As a consequence, the lower-beta Dow Jones Industrial Average posted a fat 8.7% gain, its best monthly performance in more than a year, as the small-cap Russell 2000 notched a similar 9% gain.

Sentiment was boosted mainly by lowering inflation and a more dovish Fed, prompting the market to re-evaluate interest rate expectations for 2024.

Against such a backdrop, well-allocated stock investors should have also garnished substantial gains. However, unfortunately, such is not necessarily true for those simply positioned on the wrong stocks.

That's why InvestingPro's flagship ProPicks can prove a game-changer.

Based on state-of-the-art AI-powered models, ProPicks offers investors six strategies, each one tailor-made to adapt to the investors' risk tolerance/return expectations.

In its first month available to the general public, out of the six ProPicks strategies available, five outperformed their benchmark indexes by a comfortable margin. Moreover, with November's gains, the historical 10-year performance of ProPicks against stock benchmarks has become even more lopsided to benefit the former.

All five strategies cited in this piece are rebalanced on a monthly basis, guaranteeing that our users stay ahead of the curve amid shifting market dynamics and an ever-changing macroeconomic environment.

Let's have a look at our strategies to understand how they work and how they manage to keep outperforming.

1. Beat the S&P 500

By employing sophisticated artificial intelligence, this approach ensures a thorough examination of financial data, honing in on the select few poised for remarkable growth.
