Sell In May And Go Away?
By: David Moenning, Heritage Capital Research
Don’t look now fans, but the “Sell in May” season is upon us. You likely know that the May through October period is historically weak. But our handy, dandy cycle composite work says this is NOT the year to heed the old Wall Street saw. In fact, history suggests….
The Fed Clueless If They…
By: Paul Schatz, Heritage Capital LLC
Here we go. Another one of those “most important Fed meetings ever” nonsense from the media. “SPECIAL Coverage”. Oh boy. I couldn’t sleep with all that anticipation. From my seat, the Fed is clueless if they…

Not As Strong As It Looks
By: Craig Thompson, President Asset Solutions
The Fed is raising rates in hopes of taming inflation by reducing demand. When the Fed eventually reverses course and begins to lower rates, it will be accompanied by a weak economy (probably a recession). Historically, the stock market doesn’t bottom until the Fed is near the end of its easing cycle and the recession is in its later innings.

The NAAIM Dynamic Allocation Model
Designed to be a value-add benefit to membership, NAAIM offers a Dynamic Asset Allocation Model based on the NAAIM Indicator Wall of indicators and models. The overall objective of the model portfolio is to dynamically adapt to changing market environments and to keep equity exposure in line with conditions. The model targets a normalized allocation of 60% stocks and 40% Bonds.
Here is this week’s model allocation:
The model has been run live on the NAAIM website for several years and has demonstrated the ability to reduce exposure to market risk during negative environments such as those seen in 2015-16 and 2018.
The NAAIM Dynamic Allocation Model is for illustrative and informational purposes only, and does not in any way represent an endorsement by NAAIM or an investment recommendation.
Are The Bears Back in Business?
By: Sam and Bo Bills Bills Asset Management
The stock market started the week decidedly negative as First Republic Bank released earnings on Monday afternoon and revealed a 40% decline in deposits.

The news spooked an already anxious market and bears stepped in to take control of the early week market action…

The S&P 500 Index has rallied into its February high line of resistance off the backs of heavily weighted (the Generals) mega-cap names (AAPL, MSFT, NVDA & META). Now what?
