It has seasonal rotation in its name. Really likes it. It's highly active with high turnover of stocks opportunistically (sort of like a hedge fund manager). This is perfectly fine for aggressive investors who can stomach the ride (i.e. HAC can shift to cash for long periods).

(Top Pick Mar 29/17, Down 1.5%) The ETF trades very frequently. It is like a hedge fund. It gives you an absolute return that is different from your bond portfolio. 48% of assets are currently in cash. They do some ‘Sell in May and Go Away’ as in seasonal trading.

This is an active ETF. It trades frequently and the performance is quite hedge fund like. Kind of decoupled from the market in many ways, because they trade very frequently, goes to all cash sometimes, takes Short positions using index futures, and they go to all asset classes. He uses this in a more risk tolerant investor profile, but it is a small position only.

Respects the technical and seasonality aspect of this and its management. Would have no problem with this. However, it has underperformed the S&P 500.

This is based on a seasonal strategy and is at an all-time high today. It is up more than 60% since he launched it in late 2009. It is outpacing most of the indexes.

Thinks there is a performance fee on the mutual fund. You have to pay a premium for an actively managed fund. 7 basis points is the basic fee before the bonus and not bad.

This has a 2% MER which is very high for an ETF. Also, he is not big on seasonality. To him, a reasonable cost for a broad product is one half of 1%. There are a lot of products that you can get for a quarter or even a 10th of a percent.

This is seasonal investing. There are a couple of issues on this. You must remember that most of the ETFs they have in this are Horizon ETFs, which are pretty low cost to begin with. Also, the fee they are charging which is roughly 80 basis points, basically covers the compounding as well. Also, remember that there is a performance premium on this of 20%. If they are doing very well, they are taking 20% off the top.

Seasonal rotational ETF. ‘Sell in May and go away’ rhymes. In actual fact the market high used to be in May, but is now more of a June peak. But we do know from history that from May to the fall, markets are flat. He thinks this ETF will beat the broader market during this time. But if the seasonals don’t play out that well you might not see it. He thinks, however, we will get a pullback. He thinks they will make tactical moves in the portfolio because of these moves that we should get better performance.

This is a basket of different investments and is actively managed. Other than a couple of quick movements up and down, it has been on a very steady upward track. Looks good and is stable.
