Our Flagship strategy gained +6% in July, in line with the S&P 500's +6%, despite having our maximum hedges in place (and therefore lower beta / less market exposure).

Here were the key drivers of our July returns:
1) Q2 Results for Big Tech. The big U.S. tech stocks ("FAANG") continued their rally after posting blowout Q2 results despite the pandemic.
2) Winners Kept Winning. Several of our biggest YTD gainers sustained their momentum (e.g., Twilio +27%, Apple +17%).
3) Continued "Melt Up." U.S. equity indices rose mid-single digits on both fundamental improvements and investor FOMO.
Per our April memo, we see a number of risks remaining (e.g., health, economic, political) which do not appear fully appreciated based on equity valuations at the index level. Our full hedges remain in place.
Stay heavily invested in your Flagship portfolio, with perhaps a bit of cash as dry powder to deploy when the "skew" improves. We'll let you know when it does.
Twilio (TWLO) +27%
Apple (AAPL) +17%
Amazon (AMZN) +15%
Schwab (SCHW) -2%
