MICHAEL A. GAYED, CFA

Michael GayedThanks for visiting BetaRotation.com.

My name is Michael Gayed, Co-Portfolio Manager of the ATAC Beta Rotation Fund (Ticker: BROTX) and the ATAC Inflation Rotation Fund (Ticker: ATACX).

I recently co-authored a research paper which won the 2014 Charles H. Dow Award from the Market Technicians Association titled "An Intermarket Approach to Beta Rotation." A summary version of the analysis can be downloaded from this site.

The paper outlines a strategy using the predictive power of the Utilities sector as a way to potentially outperform the stock market, and lower volatility. The approach and research conducted could be beneficial in your own investment management.

Both of our mutual funds use the Utilities sector as an input in our weekly buy and rotate strategies. The ATAC Beta Rotation Fund (Ticker: BROTX) is an equity sector rotation mutual fund which specifically utilizes a variation of our findings in the Dow Award paper by actively rotating fully into cyclical/high beta sectors or fully into non-cyclical/low beta sectors in a way that no other active equity mutual fund does.

After your review, please consider setting up a conversation with me about the white paper, and/or our mutual funds. As someone who frequently appears on CNBC and Bloomberg, and writes for investing websites such as Marketwatch, Minyanville, and SeekingAlpha, I enjoy speaking with others in the business to help formulate investment ideas within the context of our ATAC models.

I look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,
