The Macroaxis performance score is an integer between 0 and 100 that represents Novartis's market performance from a risk-adjusted return perspective. Generally speaking, the higher the score, the better is overall performance as compared to other investors. The score is normalized against the average investing universe (the best we can interpret from the data available).
