Our “Risk Averse Actively Managed Portfolio Strategy” or RAAMPS® uses both a company’s fundamentals and technicals in our trading strategy. We do not believe in “Buying and Holding” (unless the company is high quality and pays a dividend) but rather actively managing each portfolio and buying and selling as the momentum in a particular company increases or decreases. We believe that cash is an asset class and we do not need to be invested in a particular company or the overall market during a correction.
Here we created a model whose team members are firms with exceptional growth. Most companies dominate their respective fields and while they may or may not currently make profits, we believe that they are worth investing in because of their exceptional growth. There are 50 active stocks in the RAAMPS Ultra Growth model. As with all our actively traded models we may be 100% in cash during market corrections. By combining three different models we believe we have created a rare model that seeks exceptional growth while mitigating risk.
The top ranked stocks are put into the “active” queue and become “open” as the RAAMPS® program indicates a “buy”. When a stock becomes a buy, we purchase shares equal to roughly 4% of the total portfolio’s value. Each quarter we extensively examine each company as well as the long and short positions in place. This allows us to replace the weaker companies with stronger ones that will hopefully provide a better return. RAAMPS® provides “buy signals, “sell signals” and “reallocation sells”.
