A Closer Look at Our Tactical Positioning Targets

Each day, Meeder analyzes and ranks over 70 different factors from our short, intermediate, and long-term models. The dynamic statistical model incorporates factors covering macroeconomic, fundamental, trends and technical analysis to estimate the potential reward and marketplace risk of the equity markets. The Meeder Spectrum, Muirfield, Balanced, Moderate Allocation, and Conservative Allocation funds utilize this strategy for the Defensive Equity portion of their portfolios. The Defensive Equity Strategy guides the allocation of each fund’s equity sleeve and the actual proportion of equity investments in any fund will vary depending on the investment objectives of the fund.

Quick Take

As we near the end of the year, U.S. equity trends continue to remain positive. Large-, mid-, and small-cap equity indexes are at or near their 52-week high.

News sentiment surrounding the U.S. economy showed improved optimism during the past week, a positive driver in the intermediate-term model.

While our outlook remains positive, one concern is the recent weakness in institutional demand for U.S. equities. For example, we have seen an increase in short positions on the S&P 500 so far this quarter.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. All investments carry a certain amount of risk and the Funds cannot guarantee that they will achieve their investment objectives. Loss of money is a risk of investing in a mutual fund. The Funds are subject to stock market and liquidity risk. The Funds are also subject to foreign investment risk. These risks, as well as others, may occur during the time you hold shares of the funds.

Investors are advised to consider carefully the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Meeder Funds before investing. The Meeder Funds prospectus contains this and other information about the funds.
