The Contrarian Fund identifies stocks that have been out of favor for the last 12 to 24 months and are starting to rebound. This system also allocates approximately 20% of the portfolio to short hedge trades, where this allocation will fluctuate depending on overall market conditions. This system uses a proprietary 4 level scanner comprising technical, fundamental and factor-based quantitative analysis. The bullish trades are on companies where the fundamentals are improving and that have moved into high probability bullish technical setups. The bullish trades are typically open for 30 to 60 days. The bearish hedge trades are on fundamentally weak companies that have moved into high probability bearish technical setups. Four percent of capital is allocated to each trade.
