SectorSurfer’s TopDog Strategy for the Dow Jones 30 Industrials Beats the Dogs of the Dow

TopDog Uses Sector Rotation Technology

Move over little dog, there’s a TopDog moving in. SumGrowth Strategies, a Seattle company, says its automated investment advisory tool, SectorSurfer®, keeps you at the head of the pack. Its sector rotation algorithms keep you in the best stocks during bull markets and move you to the safety of a money market fund during bear markets.

The TopDog Strategy consists of a selection of up to 12 stocks from the Dow Jones 30 Industrials market index, and it is SectorSurfer's job to determine which one stock, and only one stock, from the set of 12 to currently own. By determining which stock has leadership and owning only that stock for the next month, the TopDog Strategy considerably outperforms market averages and sends the well-known Dogs of the Dow strategy to the back of the pack.

How SectorSurfer Works

Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) is entirely statistical in nature and fundamentally drives the “diversify and rebalance” philosophy of main stream investment. Unfortunately, MPT’s mathematics retains no time domain information, particularly trend information. SectorSurfer augments MPT by extracting and utilizing trend properties from market data and selects the one best stock, ETF or mutual fund from your Strategy that is likely to perform best next month.

SumGrowth Strategies founder and CEO Scott Juds says, “You can do fundamental analysis until you are blue in the face, but it’s much more profitable to follow the money. Money moves markets, and following the money means you must extract trends from the market noise. That’s what SectorSurfer does!”

The company offers numerous ready-made free and premium strategies, such as the TopDog strategy. There is no charge to open an account or use the free strategies. Monthly subscription fees range from $10 to 30, depending on how many premium strategies are used. Clients do the actual trading using their own brokerage account, typically just 3 to 5 times a year.

Scoot over little dog, the TopDog has moved in.
