Join us for our August 2014 meeting when current SMT member Carl Perthel, CMT, will provide us with a thorough update on is Buy in May and Go Away… Still Relevant? 

Carl will review the history of “Buy in May and Go Away,” while discussing industry views from proponents and nay-Sayers regarding this topic. Carl will review statistical evidence through 2014, comparing “buy and hold” and “Sell In May,” so SMT members may draw their own conclusions regarding this controversial maxim. In his presentation, Carl will examine the Presidential Cycle and its possible implications during the 2014 “Sell in May” time frame and why 2014 may be the most important year to recognize “Sell In May.” At the end of his presentation, Carl will present an optimized version of Sell In May that may enhance portfolio returns.  

Carl Perthel, CMT is a Senior Portfolio Manager with The American Asset Management Group, Inc., (  ), 50 West Montgomery Avenue Suite 110, Rockville, MD 20850.   

A reminder that we will once again meet in the down stairs social hall and have access to wireless high speed internet.

Hope to see you August 7th!
