WHY BUY AN ETF WHEN YOU CAN FIND ACTIVE MANAGERS LIKE THIS?

The portfolio manager’s ability to uncover investment opportunities has historically translated into strong outperformance, as shown below.
FIDELITY SPECIAL SITUATIONS FUND
FIDELITY CANADIAN GROWTH COMPANY FUND
POSITIONING AND OUTLOOK
· Opportunities in Information Technology: The fund’s largest sector exposure at 32%, the portfolio manager sees strong long-term momentum in technology stocks that are changing the world in areas like artificial intelligence. Exposure to this sector was reduced in recent months to take profits on stocks that had run up quickly and were losing steam.
· Trimmed exposure to financials: The second largest sector exposure in the funds, this position was built post U.S. election. Upside potential from the “Trump trade” has been fully priced in now and the portfolio manager is skeptical about whether the Trump administration will be able to follow-through on proposed policies.
· Rotation within materials: In materials, exposure to gold mining stocks was reduced, while a position in the SPDR Gold Trust ETF was initiated to add defensive exposure to the portfolio. As the U.S. economy moves later into the cycle, the market has not been compensating for taking excessive risk. Accordingly, he has started repositioning the Funds to limit downside risk.
