Due to the psychology of recency most investors stay away when a country market has a bad year, but Arrow DOGS of the World ETF seeks out these opportunities. We invest in the five worst-performing markets of the preceding year, a strategy that could allow us to often capture dramatic gains in subsequent years.
The five countries in DOGS ETF in 2019 are Turkey, Argentina, Pakistan, Greece, and Mexico.
There’s more to our process than simply buying the laggards. While we invest across the five bottom performing markets to reduce volatility, we concentrate our exposure in the worst performing market, allocating 30% to it versus 17.5% to the other markets. We obtain market exposure to each country market’s largest, most liquid stocks — and we buy and hold positions for a full year to maximize our ability to benefit from “reversion to the mean”.
