About Fidelity Sector Investor
Fidelity Sector Investor is a weekly trading service made up of three portfolios: Global Market Masters, Tactical Alpha, and Tactical ETF-only S&P 500. Each portfolio consists of a number of holdings from different categories (i.e. healthcare, technology, utilities, bonds/cash, etc.).
Active traders will feel at home using Fidelity Sector Investor’s model portfolio, but so too will longtime investors who have a tolerance for volatility and are comfortable with frequent trading. This model should be considered as a complement to a more diversified growth portfolio.
The Fidelity Sector Investor plan is based on trades ranked with Jim’s proprietary FSI fund-scoring system. On the third Thursday of each month, Jim sends a monthly issue with his leading independent market advice, analysis, Fidelity news and reviews, sector manager interviews, and more. On the other Thursdays of the month, Jim sends his regular FSI weekly online updates, which will contain sector-specific commentary as well as any of FSI portfolios’ triggered trades.
