    The controversy involving the efficiency market hypothesis opens space to different proposals of how to evaluate assets, as well as the possibility of predicting stock returns. The empirical analysis conducted in this work follow the fundamental analysis rationale, where we seek to outline portfolio winners and losers profile traded at Bovespa from January of 1995 to December of 2002. We analyzed 37 variables in portfolios built based on monthly returns of stocks. Among the portfolios analyzed, the results pointed out to a better characterization of the profile of lower performance portfolios. The main characteristics found for these portfolios are: high volatility, low debt, small size, low return on assets and equity, besides of being trade at high prices relative to profit, dividends, and EBITDA. The winner portfolios are characterized by high market risk, positive trend on equity return and low performance relative to the market in the previous month.
