Rotation

An active asset management strategy that tactically overweighted and underweighted certain sectors, depending on expected performance. Sometimes called sector rotation.

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.

In the wavelength range being examined, the dispersion curves for both forms of the polymer lay in the range of negative values of optical rotation. The films made of acetic chitosan were an exception, being characterized by both positive and negative [[alpha]] values (curves 1 and 2) at some orientation angles [theta] within the long-wave spectrum region ([lambda] > 540 nm).
Measuring changes in optical rotation between two states of a molecule is a promising alternative, since detecting the optical rotation doesn't cause any loss of information.
