An analysis of the current market by Portland, OR based CFP, Ronald Sloy. This year the old stand by, “sell in May and go away,” didn’t occur and as a result a small pullback during the summer would not be surprising. The Fed will likely raise rates. Two markets are doing extremely well and Sloy, Dahl & Holst has taken a position in each. We’ve added to Europe, and Japan is the best performing market year to date. Opportunities in the market continue to arise. We like the Healthcare Sector and Apple has been one of our predictors of market strength. The market looks seasonally choppy throughout the summer. Expect the markets to once again rise sometime between now and the end of the year.
