We believe our Opportunities portfolio (which focuses on smaller stocks) is the perfect complement to our Flagship portfolio (which focuses on larger stocks).
In late October, we flagged a rare buying opportunity in this portfolio, and it subsequently went on to rise +32% in November.
Despite this rally, we still think it's a great time to increase your allocation to these small/mid cap winners given the strong long-term secular growth tailwinds at their backs.

Key Performance Drivers
Flagship and Opportunities shared some key drivers of returns last month:
1) Small Cap Alpha. Several under-the-radar stocks delivered explosive idiosyncratic returns (e.g., APPN: +121%, UPWK: +77%, PAR: +46%) for Opportunities as fundamentals and technicals worked in their favor.
2) Large Cap Cyclicals. We saw a rapid rotation from growth stocks (e.g., big tech) into cyclical stocks poised to outperform post COVID-19 vaccine. Uber, Booking and Disney were our biggest Flagship beneficiaries.
3) Macro Volatility Subsiding. Headlines shifted from election uncertainty to COVID-19 vaccine optimism, driving investor optimism in U.S. stocks. Titan clients who capitalized on election volatility as recommended in October were rather quickly rewarded.
