Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2010
I've been trading part time for 20 years working to develop a strategy that allows me to focus on my day job while investing for today and my retirement. I've been heavily influenced by Mebane Faber's book The Ivy Portfolio. I do not follow Faber's technique directly, but have developed my own relative strength sector rotation strategy that I describe on my blog at http://www.mybestfunds.com. In addition to weekly market trend commentary, I provide weekly rankings of selected Fidelity, Schwab, Profunds, and Vanguard mutual funds and ETFs. The funds are selected and traded so there are no commission or short term trading fees. Fidelity Funds are traded/rotate on a monthly basis while Schwab, Profunds and Vanguard funds trade on a weekly basis. In the future, I will share more details of my strategy including backtest results, as well as establish model portfolios.
This week the rankings are very much like they were last week. In this week's Top 15 Rankings, we still have the "safe haven" groups at the top - Biotechnology, Healthcare, Consumer Staples, Telecomm, along with Bond funds. Green coloring indicates positive rate of change over the past period, and red indicates negative rate of change. For the full list of funds that are ranked see our Funds listing.
