Secret SOS

A Portfolio of Strategies

(Each Strategy selects a Home Run Hitter)


SectorSurfer levels the playing field with Wall Street by putting the power of award winning high performance investment algorithms in your hands. Its True Sector Rotation algorithm holds only the momentum leader during bull markets, and its StormGuard algorithm protects and grows your assets during bear markets. Only by owning the trend leader and avoiding the trend laggards can you simultaneously improve returns and reduce risk.

Stock Portfolio Design - There's a Better Way

The Healthcare Sectors Stocks Portfolio holds a set of four underlying stock Strategies, each of which selects one stock for the Portfolio-of-Strategies to hold. Each of the underlying Strategies evaluates a set of candidate stocks derived from the same market sector, which helps reduce system noise and improve the probability of selecting the true trend leader. SectorSurfer optimally extracts trend signals from noisy market data utilizing the cross-disciplinary mathematics of electronic signal processing and matched filter theory, the same mathematics that enables Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and smart phones to perform so well.

The Portfolio of Strategies configuration was developed to provide the ultimate in risk/return performance during both bull and bear markets. Risk is not a one-dimensional problem cured by a single step of diversification. A Portfolio of Strategies utilizes four distinct types of diversification to overcome the inherent shortcomings of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), Dynamic Asset Allocation (DAA) and Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA). A Portfolio of Strategies includes these risk-reducing, return-preserving steps:

1. Sector and asset class funds eliminate the risk of single-company failure while still retaining better return prospects.
2. True Sector Rotation reduces risk by avoiding trend laggards, and improves returns by selecting only the trend leader.
3. StormGuard-Armor reduces risk by exiting the market when its three components indicate that stocks are no longer safe.
4. Bear Market Strategies make positive returns more likely during a market crash, reducing the risk of meeting your objectives.


Portfolio Construction
The Healthcare Sectors Portfolio (top chart) holds four Healthcare Sector Stock Strategies. Each Strategy selects the one, and only one, designated trend leader to represent the Strategy in the overall Portfolio. The Portfolio holds only those four stocks, equally weighted at 25%, and is rebalanced quarterly to the assigned allocation weights. The impressive results produced by averaging together the home-run-hitters selected by the four underlying Strategies is immediately obvious upon viewing the chart.
     Stock Strategy #1 — Biotechnology    — 25%
     Stock Strategy #2 — Healthcare Plans    — 25%
     Stock Strategy #3 — Medical Equipment   —25% 
     Stock Strategy #4 — Medical Supplies   — 25%

The Portfolio chart plots performance for each of the contributing strategies with the portfolio's net performance in yellow and the S&P500's performance in white. The chart performance statistics speak for themselves. A more detailed performance data spreadsheet can be downloaded for review and analysis.

Underlying Stock Strategies
Each of the four underlying stock strategies evaluate a set of ten candidate stocks determined on the basis of their participation in ETFs representing its particular market sector. The MDY, SPY or MVV index ETF is additionally included in the set to compete against the stocks as a sort of performance backstop. Each month SectorSurfer's algorithms determine which one, and only one, of these candidates is the current trend leader and should be owned. Owning only the trend leader is referred to as True Sector Rotation (or serial diversification) and is a powerful investment ally best appreciated through its performance.
