Opportunistic Arbitrage

Opportunistic Arbitrage is a long/short investment strategy that seeks to take advantage of potential upside in small-and-mid-cap stocks.

It also uses short positions in an effort to hedge the account and to avoid selling long positions that may otherwise lead to substantial capital gains taxes.

The strategy seeks to buy stocks with strong fundamentals that appear to be poised for growth, but may have been overlooked by institutional investors.
