About Mike Turner

Turner Capital Investments Founder and Chief Trading Strategist

Mike Turner is the Turner Capital Investments' (TCI) Founder and Chief Trading Strategist.  His formal education is Engineering, Computer Science and Finance.  He is a 20-year veteran in the field of sophisticated systems development, followed by more than 15 years in the field of finance and stock market strategies.

A great deal of the investment decision-making processes we use in the management of TCI portfolios are based on the sophisticated stock market analytical software designed and created by Mr. Turner and his team of software engineers. Mike is the system architect and the originator of the algorithms and design methodology of our highly quantitative system.

Mike’s financial, mathematical, computer science and engineering background serve as the foundation for his disciplined, rules-based approach to trading. He does not rely on instinct, gut-feelings, emotions, analyst opinions or hunches. Mike instills in his staff that all trades are based on solid fundamental, technical and time-cycle based forecasting analytics where Mike's methodology and software systems are used to scan the universe of stocks and ETFs to find the highest scoring equities that have the highest probability of success.  Mike is a disciplined and formulaic trader.

The trade-timing tools Mike has developed cover the gamut of time cycle market forecasting, fundamental analysis and technical trends of stocks, sectors, industries and global markets. He utilizes his proprietary market-timing programs to provide him and his staff with trade-sensitive analysis results regarding when to be in the market and when to be in cash. In his book (“10: The Essential Rules for Beating the Market”), Mike describes his rules-based methodology for picking the right stocks at the right time, holding those positions as long as they are making money, and timing exactly when to sell to maximize net total return. The objective of Mike’s methodology is to think like a fundamentalist but trade like a technician. His book, published by Wiley and Sons, encapsulates Mike's fundamental and technical approach to trading.

Mike is the creator of the Bloomberg time-cycle forecasting system that is available to more than 330,000 Bloomberg terminals world-wide.  Some of the most prestigious and influential private and governmental financial institutions in the world have used Mike's proprietary trade-timing technology.

Mike's quant-based analysis programs are also used to produce time-cycle research and analysis for Bloomberg along with large, high-profile brokerage and financial management firms.

Mike is often quoted in the prestigious Investors Business Daily; is an active partner and guest speaker for the CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange); has been published extensively in Equities Magazine; and, is a major author and contributor to InvestorPlace Media.

Mike’s approach to trading is the key to TCI's money management success.  Mike promotes an open door policy with all of his clients where they are encouraged to ask questions and probe any and all trading decision.  This openness creates a strong, positive transparency between TCI and our clients.
