Sector Rotation

An investment strategy in which a portfolio overweights or underweights certain sectors in accordance with expected performance. Sector rotation is a form of active investment management; the portfolio manager observes market trends and alters the composition of the portfolio in order to earn the highest possible return. Sector rotation is fairly high risk, as a portfolio's systematic overweighting and underweighting means that is not efficiently diversified. See also: Markowitz portfolio theory.

The difference between objective and subjective evaluations of the results of shoulder hemiarthroplasty is explained by the fact that the resulting range of motion after surgery is sufficient for normal activities of daily living because the majority of the activities are carried out at the level of scapula with the abduction of 80 to 90[degrees] and external rotation, while the smallest number of activities is performed at maximum abduction and flexion (180[degrees]) [20].

The LHB tendon provides anterior stability of the glenohumeral joint by increasing the resistance to torsional forces in an abducted, externally rotated position in the late-cocking phase [6], while also serving as an important restraint to external rotation in this position [8].
