Biotech Long-Only Composite Leads With A YTD Of 28%

New York ( – Looking at the composite models and the changes that were made during the week from June 11 through June 18, we saw lots of changes in the top five positions in the models, but there were only a few notable changes in the allocation percentages.

Among the long-only models, four out of the five models saw at least three of their top five holdings change with the Biotech long-only model being the exception. In terms of allocation percentages, the only notable change was in the Index long-only model where we saw an increase from 7.8% to 8.7% for the internet sector.

Among the long-short models, there wasn’t as much turnover in the top five holdings among the models like we saw in the long-only models, but there were two areas with a fair amount of turnover. The Biotech long/short model saw three of the top five holdings on the long side change while the Technology long/short model saw three of the top five short holdings change. The one notable allocation change was that the semiconductors continue to see the short allocation percentage increase in the Technology long/short model.
