University of Miami

Team M.B.S.

Description

Miami Business School Fund is structured to hold 70-90% of assets in a beta portfolio and 10-30% of assets in an alpha overly portfolio. Allocations of assets in the Beta and Alpha portfolios will be dependent on what the fundamentals of the market are. Today, 70% of the assets are in the Beta portfolio and 30% of the assets in the Alpha portfolio.
Miami Business School’s Beta Portfolio equates the risk of all assets through leverage, to minimize the correlation of the portfolio to a specific asset class. Furthermore, the portfolio allocates asset classes into four quadrants dependent on macroeconomic factors: growth, inflation, rising market expectations, and falling market expectations.Determining these factors is essential for the optimization of MBS Fund’s portfolio. During this process, quantitative and qualitative judgments are applied to create a reasonable expected risk/return profile for each asset class.  
 
In addition to the beta portfolio, MBS seeks to capture alpha through the proprietary alpha overlay algorithm portfolio. The MBS alpha overlay portfolio is structured as a 150/50 short extension portfolio. This means that for every $150 invested long, 66.7% of the equity assets are held as long positions with 33.3% of the equity positions are short selling positions.  
 
 The overall portfolio’s expected return is 6%, overall risk of 8.71%, and has an Information Ratio of .99137. The MBS Fund is benchmarked against the S&P500.

Any opportunities I find are passed through convolutional and recurrent networks which include technical analysis metrics that are used to determine position timing. Alas, my intuition seems to always trump the numbers and say, "Forget counting cards, let's bet it all!", and somehow I have to start from square one again.

IPADE

IPADE A

Description

The objective the portfolio “EPAD3” managed by the fund, is to beat the proposed benchmark, which has been set to be the S&P 500 index, while seeking to achieve a minimum annualized tracking error of 4% and maximum annualized  tracking error of 10%.

The portfolio has a very high exposure to equity and due to its agressive strategy, it is considered a high risk investment strategy.

The portfolio is directed toward long term horizon investors, who favor high risk in the persuit of of higher returns and should be used only by experienced investors who have a great risk tolerance, don’t expect to cash out in a short term and that don’t have specific liquidity requirements.

Around fifty percent of the portfolio allocation will be defined with fundamental analysis on specific sectors (particullarly tech, finance, emerging markets, healthcare/biotech, utilities).

Tactical decisions will be made for stock picking for about twenty five per cent of the portfolio.

The rest of the portfolio will be tactically and actively managed to seek a higher alpha by capitalizing short term opportunities, by utilizing specific momentum ETFs and levered ones. 

All the portfolio will be managed actively, but the SP500 ETF and sector ETFs will follow a more pasive approach than the rest of the portfolio.

Description

I have been investing since 2005, though have begun actively trading since 2014.  I started investing when I worked for Costco and they offered a stock purchase plan as an employee benefit.  They also had, at the time, a business arrangement with Capital One.  Through that arrangement, I opened up an account and started buying stocks in companies I liked.  I also ready Money, Kiplinger, and the Economist.  Through those resources, I began selecting other investments outside of the companies I knew, learned to diversify across all industries, and within each industry.

When I first started actively trading, I also lost my job and was unemployed for longer than I ever had been up to that point.  I became an Enrolled Agent (someone who can represent US taxpayers before the IRS for any tax issue), and now work for a large tax preparation company.  I started a website on lazy money making methods (http://lazymoneyguy.com).  I am currently starting my own consulting firm.

When Robinhood, Loyal3, Acorns, and other brokerages came about that offered free or cheaper ways to invest, I jumped on using them and would put small amounts into each.  Some would automate the investment strategy based on my level of risk and aggressiveness, while others let me choose completely for myself.  It made my decisions riskier, and I have since had incredible gains and losses across several of the platforms.

The biggest mistake I made is investing in some of the biopharmaceuticals chasing the gains and waiting too long to sell.  The issue is about deciding when to cut my losses (hoping the value will go back up) or when I think it has hit its high for the day.  Timing the market is never a good idea, and every time I think it is, I lose.  I have used those losses as learning experiences.

My strategy has been very good to me in the long run.  First and foremost, I save for retirement.  I max on the Roth IRAs for myself and my wife, then max our Traditionals, then max the 401(k).  As far as allocating the remaining funds towards debts or investments depends on the interest saved paying off the debt vs the value of the investments.  Most investments have been more valuable than the interest saved from paying off the debts.  The reason for these steps before investing is because I like having a strong financial foundation against the risks I take.  Investing and trading are not my main sources of revenue, so the desperation for gains from it are not as influential when deciding what to do with my money.  Any stocks that offer dividends are invested in after stocks that do not offer dividends.  Any dividends earned are reinvested immediately.

I don’t invest more than I am willing to lose.  Don’t shop for groceries on an empty stomach.  I have fun trying stupid things like investing in SUNE.  It was painful to watch, but I had fun making friends with others who were just as stupid as me.  The online forums, like Reddit, are great places to learn and be a part of great communities, though any advice I find is taken with a grain of salt and lots of due diligence.  Any decision I make from there is on me.

I have more than 20 years of investing experience, including the past 18 years trading options. Since 2009, I’ve been trading/investing for a living. I invest with options (mostly naked puts and covered calls) to reduce my risk and increase the probability of beating the indexes. A few times per year, I might buy or sell a put or call spread, but my “go-to trade” is selling puts on index ETFs based on a combination of my technical and fundamental analysis. I have a few individual stocks I follow and work into my portfolio when I see the set-up I like.

I write an options blog (mytradersjournal.com) and have written one book based on my trading (My Trader’s Journal 2012). I also started keeping a vlog on YouTube recently (http://tinyurl.com/mtj-youtube).
