Investment Strategy

At Maccabi Capital, our investment philosophy is very simple: Capital Preservation

By identifying when markets are healthy and taking advantage of those opportunities to purchase the best stocks that offer proper risk adjusted returns, we provide our clients with superior return and limited downside. We generate Alpha for our clients by using a fundamental filter to narrow our database to only market leaders and then use a technical filter to buy the stock at the most profitable time. It’s like only betting on aces and kings in poker.

During the corrective market phase, we either make small feeler trades or sit on cash. Why? Historically, 80% of stocks follow the direction of the market. When the market sells off, every asset is pressured no matter how strong the stock is. Since our main philosophy is capital preservation, Maccabi Capital chooses to side-step challenging market phases.
