Reposition in May! Worst Six Months Great Time for Sidelines
Jeffrey Hirsch |The Stock Trader's Almanac & Almanac Investor
Elevated risk has been historically observed during the "Worst Six Months" of the year. Tepid returns during May-October make reducing long exposure and developing a defensive strategy the wise approach. In the Almanac Investor Stock and ETF Portfolios, we do not merely "sell in May and go away." Instead, we take some profits, trim, or outright sell underperforming stock and ETF positions, tighten stop losses, and limit adding new long exposure to positions from sectors that have demonstrated a record of outperforming during the "Worst Months" period.
