Phenomenal Performance from These ETFOptimize Strategies

Even with a record-setting year in 2019, the S&P 500 couldn't come close to matching the performance of the two top ETFOptimize strategies – our Adaptive Equity+ (2 ETF) Rotation Strategy and our Optimal Equity/Defensive (4 ETF) Strategy.

Chart 1 below shows a chart of our Adaptive Equity+ (2 ETF) Rotation Strategy performance since the start of 2019. The model has a Total Return of 70.55% for 2019, which is an Annualized Return of 73.51%. This return is compared in the chart to the S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which has gained about 30% for 2019. Therefore, the Equity+ (2 ETF) model outperforms by 235% (2.35-times) the excellent return of the S&P 500 ETF in 2019.


Adaptive Equity+ (2 ETF) Strategy performance for 2019

Chart 1: Our Adaptive Equity+ (2 ETF) Strategy has gained 70.55% this year – 2.35-times the record-setting return of the S&P 500 – and an Annualized Return of 73.51%.

Moreover, the Adaptive Equity+ Strategy isn't the only model that produced an exception return in 2019. For example, with a Total Return of 63.4%, or 66.01% Annualized, our Optimal Equity/Defensive (4 ETF) Strategy produces only slightly less – but still more than double (222% or 2.22-times) the return of the S&P 500 in 2019.

This model combines two Equity-based ETFs and two Fixed Income or Cash-Proxy-based ETFs, in a 70% - 30% ratio, to produce a very steady and consistent performance year after year. Our Fixed Income (2-ETF) Component produced a return of about 18.3% for 2019.

Chart 2 below shows the performance of this four-ETF model for 2019, producing a 63.4% Total Return (66% Annualized) for 2019.

Chart 2:  Our Optimal Equity/Defensive (4 ETF) Combo Strategy has gained 63.4% in 2019 – more than double (2.22-times) the return of the S&P 500 in 2019.



Chart 3 below shows a chart we have never presented in the past. This is our Equity++ Component, which contributes half the positions (2 ETFs) and 70% of the weighting to our Optimal Equity/Defensive (4 ETF) Strategy (above). The other 30% weighting comes from two Defensive ETFs (usually Fixed Income-based ETFs). This 2-ETF component is not currently available as a stand-alone model. However, we would like you to know just how outstanding the performance of the Equity portion of the model has been this year.

Attaining an AMAZING return of 91.84% – which is 95.94% Annualized – for 2019, this component produced the highest return of our models  – more than TRIPLE the return of the market – and is the highest actual performance of which we are aware.

Our S&P 500 models (S&P 500 Bull/Bear and S&P 500 Persistent Profits) are getting significant revisions (scheduled for early-January) and after this revision, they will provide comparable, consistent performance to the models above (and maybe even better).


We will update with a new blog page showing all strategies – running through the complete year and including our revised S&P 500 models – after the December 31, 2019 market close is in the books. Make sure you're on our mailing list and we'll send you a note when it's ready!
