Market Neutral Portfolio 

Ypa Market Neutral Portfolio is a multi-model strategy designed to manage assets over $65k with a theoretical zero exposition to market trends. There are 25 holdings: 24 U.S. stocks and one inverse ETF on a benchmark index. There is no short selling. The strategy can be executed with or without leverage. The portfolio is diversified in at least 2 defensive sectors and 2 cyclical sectors of the GICS classification, with at least 10 stocks in defensive sectors. It holds at least 14 large caps (S&P 500 companies). Other stocks are in the Russell 3000 index, with a filter on liquidity. Up to 4 positions may be in cash at some points in time.  Stocks are chosen using quantitative rankings based on fundamental factors. The portfolio was designed taking into account market cycles theory, the relevance of different fundamental factors in different sectors, and backtests since 1999. This is not a guarantee for future returns. We can just guarantee that a diversified portfolio selecting stocks among the best ones according to fundamental factors has a good probability to beat the index on the long term. Investors must be aware that a market neutral portfolio has a different behavior than a normal portfolio: it often underperforms the index in a bullish market, and can even go down for a while when the broad market is rising. It can be frustrating for investors who don't understand the long-term vision of this kind of strategy. If you prefer bullish strategies, the Growth Newsletter is better for you.
