At Rocky Mountain Humane Investing, our number one priority is preservation of capital. We believe the market is healthy approximately 75% of the time. We do our best to identify those healthy times or unhealthy times by monitoring monetary policy and technical factors. We take advantage of healthy markets by investing in the best clean and ethical stocks we can find. We employ both risk control and
technical strategies to increase our probabilities of achieving superior performance. During unhealthy or corrective markets, we look to raise cash, use Treasury Bonds or simply sit out completely.
Why do we stay out of the market at times? Because 4 out of 5 stocks move with the general direction of the market. When the market is under institutional selling, almost all asset classes are sold, no matter how strong they may seem fundamentally. Again, our main goal is downside protection. We believe that an active approach in healthy and especially unhealthy environments is better than a passive one, especially during market corrections.
