What is Tactical Allocation?

Which Asset Categories are Expensive?

Which Asset Categories are Bargains?

What is a “Tradeable Overreaction?”

Investors often appear obligated to separate themselves into one of two camps, passive or active. This week’s program dives into a third approach that we call tactical allocation. The concept of being a trader implies accepting risk to many investors. However, the ability to define great assets that should be in a portfolio based upon attractive pricing results in a decision tree of confidence when markets suddenly present bargains.

We believe that the foundation of a commitment to advance knowledge and ability in three distinct asset categories can guide successful decision making for the next decade. Safety and income, high cash flow, and growth with income provide investors a conceptual framework over and above traditional asset class definitions.

Join us for an advanced strategy session designed to advance your ability to prosper between now and 2025.

This week’s financial media focus on Federal Reserve policy underscores a history of market overreactions that include the “taper tantrum” of 2013 as well as 35 years of reactions that, in hindsight, were tradeable overreactions in reasonably conservative assets.

Combine this week’s fixed income market activity with the corrections of 2015 and 2016 in the global credit markets, and investors are provided with the empowering ability to define bargains in attractive asset categories.

By defining a forward return target, investors gain a powerful tool for filtering choices. Estimates of likely forward returns are also a function of pricing. This week’s intelligence reports include pricing for major asset classes in the charts below. This week’s program guides listeners through the meaning of the Bloomberg chart:
