Why ETFs are Today's Go-To Investment of Choice

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are similar to mutual funds, but they trade on exchanges throughout the day just like a stock. However, unlike most mutual funds that depend on the fund manager's stock-selection capabilities, ETFs are based on well-established stock-market indices such as the well-known Dow Industrial Average, the S&P 500 index, the S&P Technology Sector, or the Russell 2000 small-cap stock index. ETFs allow you to... Continue reading this article...

ETFOptimize offers a variety of high-performance, ETF-based Investment Strategies, designed to meet the investment objectives and risk tolerances of a broad spectrum of investors. Each model strategy is a discrete product so that you don't have to pay an exorbitant amount to subscribe to a collection of a half-dozen portfolios – 5 of which you probably won't even use. Investors can choose the strategy that is most appropriate for their financial objectives and risk tolerance, or combine several strategies to harvest uncorrelated profits.

The objective of each portfolio is to achieve consistent, exceptional annual returns with minimal drawdowns (peak-to-trough decline) so investors can be confident that their hard-earned nest egg is steadily growing every year (regardless of the performance of the overall stock market).

Each of Our Strategies Have Three Performance Objectives:

1) Profitable Every Year: We require each of our strategies to be profitable each and every year. For most investors, merely beating a poor-performing benchmark is not acceptable when the market experiences a severe downturn, as it did during 2008, and your premium strategy outperformed a bit but also lost money. To us, that's just unacceptable. Therefore, we also put significant emphasis on each approach being profitable every year. Even during a year such as 2008 when the market and virtually all asset classes collapsed simultaneously, our strategies provided subscribers with impressive positive performance.

How do we achieve this objective? Depending on the strategy, there is either an automatic rotation into cash (via a cash-proxy ETF) or rotation into an ETF that moves in the opposite direction of equities when they are declining. This selection could consist of a fixed-income ETF, perhaps a defensive-sector ETF, or it could be an inverse (short) ETF. In a world of nearly unlimited investment choices, ETFOptimize provides you with straightforward, proven guidance from our suite of strategies to help you to achieve your financial goals consistently.

2) Outperformance of the closest benchmark: We design each of our strategies to outperform both its closest market benchmark and the S&P 500 index every year.* While targeting outperformance of a benchmark is industry-standard, the choice of a benchmark can sometimes give asset managers undeserved credit if it is a poor performer. For this reason, we choose the top performing, most closely related benchmark for each of our strategies – and we also seek to outperform the S&P 500 index – the most well-known and widely used broad-market benchmark with stocks that constitute 80% of the market's capitalization.

3) Outperformance of the S&P 500 Index: Standard and Poor's 500 index is a market-capitalization-weighted index of the 500 largest US publicly traded companies The index is widely regarded as the best gauge of large-cap US equities and is widely used as a benchmark for the overall market. As a result, there are many funds designed to track the performance of the S&P 500, including the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which was the first ETF created (1993) and today has the most substantial amount of assets under management (AUM, more than $250 billion in 2019) and trading volume (average of about $20-$25 billion traded daily in 2019)

The combination of these three objectives: 1) profitable every year, 2) outperformance of the closest benchmark, and 3) a consistent outperformance of the S&P 500 each year provides investors with strategies that will never let them down. The ETFOptimize investment strategies allow you to attain your financial goals with consistently excellent performance year after year.

Following Our Strategies is Easy and Exceptionally Profitable

makes investing with ETFs easy and lucrative.
Our model portfolios feature minimal drawdowns, only a handful of trades per year, and a high percentage of winning trades. Each subscription model-strategy achieves steady, robust compound annual growth of between 14%–80% per year. By trading just a few times each year and rotating funds to the optimal ETF at the optimal time, you get dramatically improved returns over discretionary stock picking or a passive, buy-and-hold investment approach.

Our model strategies hold only 1-4 ETF positions and trade with an average of 3.85 months (in a range of 2-to-7.2 months) between transactions (depending on the strategy). Because they hold dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of individual stocks, Exchange Traded Funds are inherently well-diversified from individual-company risk, and there is no reason to own more than one or two, especially if you have a strategy, such as provided by ETFOptimize, that always rotates to the optimum ETF at any given time. Our models consistently adapt to economic conditions and change the ETFs held in the portfolio to achieve the highest return with least amount of drawdown.

Each weekend, all of our strategies or rebalanced and we send subscribers straightforward update notices with appropriate trade signals for the model to which they have subscribed. All trades are executed using the average price on the next trading day, and our entry and exit prices will be the same as yours. Each strategy includes commissions and reinvested dividends in the performance calculations. In this way, subscriber's returns closely match our model's performance, and the historical returns you see featured on the ETFOptimize website are always reliable and accurate.
