Current M21 RL Positions
Disclosure: This is a "discretionary" fund of sorts. My 401k is in mutual funds (70% equities) and I also have cash, various bond funds and a precious metals/mining fund with many months of emergency funds in case my timeline needs to be extended.

As you can see I prefer the outcasts and try to pick them up when they are making the most number of people sick. My hope is that the winners will overshadow the few that might not make it through the battle.
On occasion I try to pick out an ETF hedge to the short side but timing the market in that fashion has not worked out well for me.
This post was designed to help put my speculative moves in perspective. For someone who is not a "professionaI" I own more stocks than I should and trade more than I should but I just can't help myself. It will probably take another couple of years to determine whether I was better off buying an index fund...so far the past year or so has been enjoyable even though it can be extremely gut wrenching.
