The Rules Rule! (Rules-Based ETF Rotation Strategies that Beat the Market)
Emotions are an investor’s worst enemy, causing them to buy at the top, sell at the bottom, and play “whack a mole” in between. However, history shows that by embracing a rules-based investment approach, one can extract their emotions from the investment process, improve performance, and reduce volatility.
Sam Stovall will discuss market-beating sector-rotation strategies that leverage seasonality, momentum and correlation. For instance, “Sell in May and Go Away” is more than an old Wall Street axiom that reminds investors of summertime softness. It also shows that rotating among sectors, rather than retreating from stocks entirely, would have beaten the market by more than 500 basis points per year. Come hear Sam talk about whether investors should “let their winners ride” by investing in last year’s top performing S&P 500 sub-industries or “buy low and sell high” by constructing a portfolio of last year’s worst performing groups. Finally, he will show us that pairing tech – the best performing sector over the past 20 years – with a less volatile group not only substantially reduced volatility but also improved results.
