How To Stay Invested In An Overextended Market & Still Avoid The Next Big Correction – John Kosar, CMT, Asbury Research

During the past 18 months, the benchmark S&P 500 first collapsed by 35% and then turned on a dime to rise by 100%, all in the midst of a global pandemic that appears to be making a comeback via the Delta variant.   In this webinar, John Kosar will show you how Asbury Research’s data-driven approach and proprietary models help their clients avoid emotionally-driven mistakes, especially during turbulent times like these, and to just “follow the money.” Asbury’s two tactical models help their clients avoid large drawdowns by identifying Risk On and Risk Off environments, and their four Strategic models identify which parts of the market are the most likely to outperform during Risk On periods.

Best & Worst Days Study: Active Management Delivers More Dependable Returns – featuring Will Hepburn

The risk of selling and moving out of the stock market often focuses on missing good days and hurting overall returns. However, investors have an equal chance of missing a bad day and increasing returns. Since the best days often follow the worst days, back-to- back, it is statistically more likely that if an investor missed one he will miss the other. Creator of the “Best & Worst Days” study, Will Hepburn, looks at the outcome of missing both the best and worst days in the market, and explains why it makes sense to actively manage your assets. Will Hepburn is also the creator of NAAIM’s Exposure Index, which represents the weekly average exposure to US Equity markets reported by NAAIM members. In existence since 2009, the NAAIM Exposure Index is followed by analysts through-out the world.

2020 Founders Award Winning Paper Presentation | Actively Using Passive Sectors: Generating Alpha Using the VIX – Michael A. Gayed, CFA, Toroso Investments

Michael A. Gayed, CFA, portfolio manager at Toroso Investments presents his winning 2020 Founders Award paper, “Actively Using Passive Sectors to Generate Alpha Using the VIX”. Michael and his co-authors David S. Dierking, CFA and Matthew Bowler, propose that it is possible to achieve significant alpha compared to the S&P 500 Index by flipping the traditional market “wisdom” of investing in defensive sectors in periods of high market volatility, and instead, overweighting cyclical sectors. In their paper, Gayed, Dierking, and Bowler approach sector allocation from a mean reversion perspective with the VIX as the trade trigger. Short-term spikes in the CBOE Volatility Index, better known as the VIX, can create aggressive mispricing from severe panic states. Michael will discuss how opportunity for market outperformance is possible for the trader who is willing to buy into panic, cyclical sectors, such as Technology, Industrials, Materials and Consumer Discretionary.

Values-aligned Investing:  What it is and why it is here to stay – Bill Davis, Stance Capital, LLC

Values-aligned investing goes by many names. Sometimes it is referred to as Socially Responsible Investing (SRI). More recently it is referred to as ESG (environmental, social governance). The field of values-aligned investing also incorporates faith-based approaches.

Bill Davis explained each of these approaches, their origins, and how they are different. In particular, we will focus on ESG, which along with the advent of greater transparency by public corporations, and strong performance has gained traction among retail and institutional investors. Given expected generational wealth transfers to Millennial and Gen Z investors, values-aligned investing is expected to grow significantly in the years ahead. This represents a both a threat and an opportunity to asset management firms, regardless of asset class.

Understanding the Benefits and Risks of Using Inverse and Leveraged Funds

After nearly a decade of strong equity market returns, we’ve seen signs of a turning tide. Inverse investing may help to potentially smooth out turbulence in your portfolio. Hedging a losing position may also save you from selling low into a down market, causing a taxable event or disrupting your long-term investment goals. On the other hand, if you have conviction that this bull market has some legs left, leveraged investing offers a way to participate with less capital commitment.  Topics of discussion include:

  • The Basics of Inverse Investing
  • Applying a Hedge in Different Market Conditions
  • Hedging in a Portfolio Context
  • The Basics of Leveraged Investing
