AlphaProfit Offers New Sector Recommendations on March 31
AlphaProfit will provide new sector recommendations on March 31. The AlphaProfit Core and Focus model portfolios will be repositioned with new ETFs and Fidelity funds to preserve profits and pursue growth opportunities in the evolving market environment.
Global markets have come a long way in the past year. During this bull market, corrections have been relatively short and shallow. Earlier this year, U.S. equities pulled back on concerns that heavily indebted European nations like Greece, Portugal and Spain may have trouble funding their rising budget deficits with sovereign debt. Assurances from the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank helped equity prices to stabilize and resume their rally.
As the first quarter comes to a close, the S&P 500 index is up 5.8%. From a sector perspective, the Industrial Select Sector SPDR (XLI) and Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (XLY) with gains of 11.2% and 10.0%, respectively are leading the rally this year while Utilities Select Sector SPDR (XLU) and Vanguard Telecommunications ETF (VOX) with losses of 4.1% and 0.3% respectively, are lagging.
AlphaProfit’s time-tested ValuM investment process has enabled the sector based Focus and Core model portfolios, with YTD gains of 10.5% and 9.7% respectively, to outpace the S&P 500.
Commenting on the markets, Dr. Sam Subramanian, Managing Principal of AlphaProfit Investments, LLC and Editor of the AlphaProfit Sector Investors' Newsletter said, “The stimulus plans implemented by governments around the world in the last 18 months have enabled economies to recover.”
The situation is however changing now. Concerned over inflation, Australia, China, India, and Norway are starting to unwind the stimulus measures and tighten monetary policy. Things may change in the G-7 group too relatively soon with Canada taking the lead in raising interest rates.
Subramanian believes investors do not need to hit the panic button just because the markets are overbought and rates are set to go up. He says, "Investors can still make money by investing in the right sectors and by using appropriate capital preservation strategies. In the early phase of this bull market, higher risk low quality stocks performed best. Going forward, higher quality less risky stocks are likely to fare better."
AlphaProfit will provide new sector recommendations on March 31 and reposition its Core and Focus model portfolios with recommended Fidelity Funds and ETFs.
A dollar invested in AlphaProfit’s ValuM investment process at the beginning of 1994 has increased to $24.74 compared to $3.37 from an S&P 500 index fund like Vanguard 500 Index (VFINX). Since the market’s March 2009 bottom, the AlphaProfit sector model portfolios have benefited from strong contributions from winners like Fidelity Select Automotive (FSAVX) and SPDR S&P Retail (XRT) that have gained 312% and 132%, respectively.
In addition to sector model portfolios, AlphaProfit’s Premium Service provides recommendations on best-of-breed mutual funds and stocks. Selecting winners like Yacktman Fund (YACKX) and Janus Overseas Fund (JAOSX), the no-transaction fee mutual fund portfolio has gained 87%. In the past year, AlphaProfit’s stock recommendations have on average gained 8.5% per month.
