SmallCap Growth Trend

Hold positions in the fastest growing smallcap stocks with huge potential

Strategy Description

Our SmallCap Growth Trend strategy invests in stocks that have the most potential for price appreciation over the next 1-2 years. These are stocks with a market capitalization between $300 million and $5 billion dollars that have fast growing businesses with potential to achieve more in a large addressable market. The strategy always holds 25 positions long and uses our unique trend following overlay to determine when to exit positions. A little bit of leverage is used with 125% of the current account value invested. The goal is to expose the portfolio to stocks that have the potential to deliver 10x returns, that is 1,000% or more returns in under 2 years.

Strategy Objective

Benchmark: S&P 500 Index

To deliver higher returns than the benchmark on a yearly basis and significantly so in the long term with a similar level of volatility and a moderate level of correlation.

Investable Universe

All stocks on US exchanges with a market capitalization between $300 million and $5 billion dollars that have at least $1 million in average daily traded volume.

Investment Approach

Our portfolio is always invested in 25 positions across at least a dozen industries, we use a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis to identify the best investments to make. Our algorithm looks for stocks with strong business growth and an up-trending stock price. We then research the business within the context of its industry to ensure we're only investing in high quality businesses that have momentum in sales with potential to achieve a lot more. If we don't think the stock has the potential to deliver 10x returns in under 2 year's we don't invest in it.

Our unique trend following algorithm keeps us invested in the stock provided there is a strong and healthy uptrend in the stock price. Once the price eventually breaks the uptrend as determined by our algorithm, the portfolio will then exit the position and replace it with the next best one we find.
