(A Top Pick May 07/20, Up 12%) Strongly outperformed the broad market starting late February. It was a pandemic trade. From late March to early June, it gave it all back. We've seen a baseline, and now it's starting to outperform again. August and September are dangerous times for the market, so this is a favourable trade right now.

Everyone is rushing into tech but if things turn down, it will be hit quite hard. Seasonally it is weak starting in June. He would flick the switch to consumer staples right now.

Late-April to October is a defensive way to play consumer staples. Expect a break-out coming in this space and XLP. Now, it's a little weak as it enter seasonal strength. XLP is a way to take off some risk in a portfolio by starting to get more defensive.

Expense ratio is 13 basis points. This is a defensive space. Basket of consumer staples. Late in the cycle, you still need tooth paste, you still need the toilet paper, your groceries. Low beta. He is 17-18% in the defensive space but that is climbing.

(Past Top Pick, July 9, 2018, Up4%) Just sold it. It was a summer play. Perhaps a little undervalued. It's been stuck. Range is $50-55. Staples (i.e. groceries) do well in summer, but less so in the winter. Why? There's a rotation into defensive stocks after summer as riskier stocks, like the FANGs, get choppy.

(A Top Pick May 1/18, Up 5%) It is a contrarian play this summer. It was so over sold that he felt it could get back to $55. You might get a total of 10% this summer and are up 5 so far.

It is a summer play and often is. The sector broke down quite a bit. It is a trade and will get into the $55 area. It is a bit of a contrarian play. It is bouncing off the oversold level. You don't want to be involved in it for too long. It is not in an uptrend. The sector itself has its own challenges and so he will likely be in it only until October or November.
