active portfolio strategy


An investment approach in which an investor uses a variety of forecasting and assumption techniques to determine which securities to purchase in order to achieve a high return. Unlike the buy and hold strategy, an adherent to an active portfolio strategy is more likely to buy and sell securities with greater frequencies as the investor seeks to move available capital into more profitable stocks.
