Invest an endowment of $100,000 and get the highest rate of return possible in a three-month period. Date of investment transactions will begin on September 2, 2004 and terminate on December 6, 2004.
Simply stated, to yield a return on investment 10% or higher in one quarter of investing.
Buy low, Sell high. The managers of the Money Maker fund will implement a strategy of investing only in options that offer a substantial high rate of return. This requires lots of research from the fund managers in various fields of the market. We will be looking for options that are very sensitive in the market place and temporarily undervalued. We will Invest in the undervalued stock and sell at a predetermined rate. Stocks will generally be held for a time period of 15 business days not to exceed 30 consecutive business days, at any given time during the funds activity.
The managers at the Money Maker fund pay very close attention to market analysis and corporate activity in sectors of interest. Events such as leadership change, implementation of new products, demise of existing products, or the emergence of a scandal in sensitive markets is where the managers of the Money Maker fund are looking for opportunities.
Due to the strategy, the risk is very high but acceptable.
