Macroeconomic conditions and cycle progression are the foundation of my investment strategy. I evaluate the macro trend, and then select investments that will benefit from that trend. I stay fully invested until markets reach their frothy cycle peak times. When I see evidence of a coming recession, I exit my equity positions, and shift to the safety of cash and treasury bonds. After the market slides deeply, and after the panic reaches headline proportions, I begin to reinvest. I
successfully avoided the 2000-2002 and the 2008 bear markets, while being fully invested for the bull markets around those declines.
I am not a stock picker. Instead, I make heavy use of ETFs, and I am usually long with some leverage, and no bonds. I only buy bonds during stock market crashes. I do not sell short, and very rarely use options.
I use high beta stocks, leveraged ETFs, sector rotation, and some margin debt, within the rising cycle trend to outperform the average trend. I also adjust the size of my market exposure based on market conditions, and historic patterns.
Over the past 35+ years of active investing in stocks and real estate, my investment returns have been significantly above the average return of the S&P 500.
My usual asset allocation target is roughly 60% Stock, and 40% real estate.
