What is Utilities?

The Utilities Live portfolio consists of up to ten securities from the Russell 1000 that together minimize tracking error against the XLU. The portfolio’s goal is to track the Utilities Sector Select SPDR ETF (XLU) aiming to achieve higher Sharpe Ratio through active rebalancing. In addition, using Lucena’s machine learning optimization engine (MVO combined with Lucena’s Forecaster) we optimize every two weeks for maximum risk adjusted return (max Sharpe Ratio). Rebalancing trades are executed every other Thursday. In addition, there is a trailing stop loss per security of 12%.

The concept behind Utilities is to compile a basket of securities that together track the XLU but individually reflect a higher beta. The active rebalancing for a max risk adjusted return results in consistent outperformance while still maintaining lower volatility overall.
