Sell Signal

By on October 19, 2009

The Tactical Timing System has generated a sell signal. To comply with the system the following positions were sold:

CBS (CBS)

Cohen & Steers REIT Utility Income Fund (RTU)

Newell Rubbermaid (NWL)

Nuveen Multi-Strategy Income (JPC)

Worthington Industries (WOR)


Target Allocation:30% equities; 70% fixed income

Commentary: The market continues to power higher, while any pull-backs have been extremely brief and contained. Obviously, this pattern will change at some point. With the S&P 500 trading 20% above its 200-day moving average advances from here should be less exuberant. If there is a double-dip recession the market could sell off substantially allowing one to re-invest at lower prices.

Special note: The cash generated from the sale of the above securities will be reinvested in the Pimco 1-5 Year U.S. TIPS Index Fund (STPZ).
