The Denver Chapter Presents 
Sector Surfing To Improve Returns
by Scott Juds
Monday, October 20, 2014
7:00 p.m - 8:45 PM

It is well documented that asset allocation (stocks vs. bonds etc.) drives most of investors' differences in returns. Within the equities world, being in the leading sectors and out of the lagging ones is a likewise very important driver of returns. Our speaker specializes in quantitatively-based sector studies and will show us how to track changing sector leadership in real time.  He will also specify leading ETFs that can be used to implement successful 'sector surfing'.

Scott Juds has applied an engineering mindset to researching market strategies for more than 20 years.  What today is SectorSurfer began as a personal quest in 1992 to develop an investment tool to improve his own previously unsatisfactory IRA-investing results.  He has over 30 years' experience in both hands-on and executive-level positions at companies including piTech Engineering, IDX, MobilServ Technologies, and Eaton Corporation's Opcon Division.  He is the named inventor on over 40 U.S. and foreign patents and is author of “Photoelectric Sensors and Controls:  Selection & Application".  He holds a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin—Madison and an M.S.E.E. from Stanford.  Scott is a registered professional engineer in Washington.
