An Evolving Investment Thesis for ESG | Institutional …
Stocks in Asia mostly saw mixed price action in the last trading day of the week. Tech stocks were very weak in South Korea (Samsung -4.2%, Hynix -2.9%, etc.) and that drove the KOSPI underperformance. The main Eurozone indices all closed lower in the Friday session, with the Stoxx 600 recording its biggest weekly loss since November 2016, mainly driven by banking stocks (led by Deutsche Bank, which was down more than 5%). U.S. indices opened under pressure in sympathy to the disappointing European market declines. A steep sell-off in crypto currencies extended and may have also weighed on equity sentiment. The widely covered backup in global interest rates was reinforced by a quite strong U.S. January jobs report. A 2.9% jump in wages was maybe partially attributed to a one-off, specifically that severe storms on the East Coast during the survey week led some employers to report fewer hours worked by salaried staff and thus, implicitly, higher hourly earnings. Nevertheless, yields moved up, the U.S. dollar firmed, and gold lost ground following the report. U.S. indices remained heavy with key earnings reporters Google, Apple and Visa all moving lower after the bell yesterday. Many pointed to the continuing rise in interest rates while others blamed the political rumblings out of Washington, month end portfolio rebalancing, and the liquidity offered by the heart of Q4 earnings season all as factors inducing a sell off. Even as the stock market selloff accelerated on Friday afternoon, volumes were not particularly robust given the deluge of high profile earnings reports, leading some commentators to speculate that the downdraft was largely a buyers strike from overbought conditions. Many stock indices have traded off about 4% from recent highs and the VIX popped above 17, touching levels not seen in more than a year. For the week the S&P500 dropped 3.9%, the DJIA fell 4.1%, the 50/50 Nasdaq/Russell benchmark sank 3.7%, but the BSD Global Tech Hedge Fund retreated only 1.5% (Thanks, to the short derivatives hedge).
** The benchmark is a blend of 50% Nasdaq Composite Index and 50% Russell 2000 Index. The blended index is chosen as the indices are generally followed as indicators of the performance of technology stocks and growth stocks, and our portfolio has approximately 50% of positions more correlated with the Nasdaq Composite Index, and 50% of positions more correlated with the Russell 2000 Index.

The derivatives overlay portion of the portfolio both hedges and leverages our stock portfolio by evaluating macro fundamentals, technicals and capital flow investment changes, and using futures and options on futures in equity indices, ETFs, fixed income products, commodities and currencies, to opportunistically capitalize on these events. The derivatives are positioned to lessen the volatility of our downside risk and complement our long bias mandate.

The technology sector has traditionally served as an essential constituent in any investment portfolio, and we believe that innovation and invention often associated with this sector will ultimately drive the next leg of growth in the stock market. We seek out technology companies that have proprietary technologies which will provide them with the competitive advantage for sustainable growth, and favor companies that have a stellar track record in pushing the frontiers of technology in their respective subsectors. At BSD, we believe buying and holding these companies and are trading at reasonable valuations will maximize our returns and minimize our risks over the long term.
