Coletta Short Bias
The program is designed to offer capital appreciation by primarily going short equities in the U.S. markets. The portfolio will utilize derivatives and short positions in equities. The portfolios will be managed primarily utilizing technical analysis. Companies selected as shorts may show a deterioration in earnings growth and cash flow. CJCC can adjust its strategy for each client as appropriate dependent on its perspective of future market conditions. CJCC can take a defensive approach in the program through the use of derivatives on securities, exchange traded funds, indexes, and other hedging techniques. Likewise, CJCC can take a more aggressive approach in the program also through the use of leverage including derivatives and margin. Both defensive and aggressive strategies may be used for a client’s account only to extent prohibited by LOA, broker/dealer and custodial limitations, and applicable law. Clients may specifically request, in writing, to limit or avoid the use of either defensive or aggressive strategies in their accounts. Clients may also specify whether or not they prefer CJCC to utilize leverage.
The objective of the Coletta Short Bias program is to provide a high level of capital appreciation.
