The Rules Rule! (Rules-Based Sector-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 would have extracted their emotions from the investment process, improved performance, and reduced volatility.
Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist of CFRA, and author of The Seven Rules of Wall Street, will discuss market-beating sector-rotation strategies that leverage seasonality, momentum, and correlation. For instance, "sell in May and go away" is more than just 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 Stovall also 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 you that pairing tech—the best-performing sector over the past 20 years—with a less-volatile group not only would have substantially reduced volatility, but also would have increased returns.
