There are no trades for April. Fundamentals remain the same – quite surprisingly the same as last month. Some bits of news: the U.S. is now the world’s largest producer of oil, surpassing even Saudi Arabia. Quite a few members of Congress are pushing for a repeal of the ban on exporting U.S. oil. That’s gotta be tough to swallow in the Middle East.
The Pro-Folio USA model evaluates its holdings on a monthly basis. There are no trades this month. As of the last trading day of March (31st), we have the following trade signals:
For existing investors:
You should have spent the month of March invested in the holdings above that are marked HOLD or BUY. You should be keeping the cash equivalent of the other 2 positions on the sideline, ready to invest when those segment signals turn positive.
For new investors:
If you are new to Pro-Folio USA this month, you should divide your portfolio into 5 equal parts, and invest an equal amount of money in each of the securities shown above, marked as “HOLD” or “BUY.” Because you didn’t invest in the “HOLD” components of the model at the time when the buy signal first turned positive, your return on these initial trades may not be reflective of the model’s typical expected returns.
I just read a report on Yahoo! News that a Russian military scientist believes that chaos and mass destruction could be unleashed in the US by dropping a large nuclear weapon on Yellowstone or the San Andreas Fault. Is this real news or is this a James Bond movie? Scary but totally unbelievable. Or is it?
Fortunately for us, the Pro-Folio USA model lost less than 1% of value in 2008, the worst year in recent memory and the only year on record that Pro-Folio USA lost value. As shown in the 2014 performance numbers that I posted recently, the long term average growth of the model is north of 8% per year. We can continue to follow the model with confidence that our assets will be protected. Sleep well every night!
