PWS Fund Description

PWS tracks an index that toggles between equity and Treasurys, or a combination of both, on a monthly basis depending on monthly moving averages.

PWS Factset Analytics Insight

PWS tracks an index composed of several subindices: a US Treasury bond index, 12 US equity indices, and a T-bill index. Every month, PWS invests in either a fixed income portfolio or an equity portfolio as determined by an indicator called the Risk Ratio—the ratio between a high-yield US corporate bond index and a Treasury bond index. The fund invests in equities if the Risk Ratio is at or above its 5-month EMA (exponential moving average), indicating that high-yield debt is outperforming Treasurys. The equity portfolio consists of the five best performers out of 12 US sector and industry indices, equally weighted (20% each). However, if any of the five best performers has a poor moving average signal, PWS will replace it with T-bills. When the Risk Ratio toggles PWS to a fixed income portfolio, the fund will be invested 100% in either Treasury bonds or T-bills—depending on a moving average measure. With many moving parts, PWS has the potential to turn over its entire portfolio on a monthly basis.
