DWEQ: 3rd Quarter 2021 Portfolio Review
For the AdvisorShares Dorsey Wright Alpha Equal weight ETF (Ticker: DWEQ) we continue to deploy investment ideas that have shown value over time. The first idea is that sectors showing strong momentum will often outpace the broad market and the sectors that show less favorable momentum. This is achieved by using our systematic analysis to overweight to what we believe are strong companies to capture upward momentum, as well as removing or reducing allocations to trouble areas. Prime examples are reducing or removing energy exposure during the oil sell off of 2015 or overweighting technology over the past decade. The second idea is that being overly diversified dilutes momentum returns by forcing the portfolio to own names that are not as strong. This is implemented by reducing the total number of portfolio holdings to a manageable number.
Combining both of these ideas gives us a portfolio of names that are equally weighted in the three sectors that are showing the strongest momentum. The roughly 50 names in the portfolio are equally weighted and are rebalanced every time the portfolio makes a change. This pushes the portfolio to hold what we have identified as the top names in each sector.
