Three out of four major stock market declines (-20% or more) have occurred during economic recessions. Recovering from these big losses can be a difficult and more importantly, stressful endeavor. With that in mind, doesn’t it make sense to have two game plans? One to grow wealth in favorable periods and another to protect during recession led bear markets? We think so… and this is precisely the All-Season investment approach we utilize. We invest on behalf of individuals, organizations, and financial advisors that appreciate a conservative and active investment style that aims to deliver consistent results without taking undue risk.

Hello SA. I'm happy to be a part of this great website. I have been a market watcher for many years, and have been a trader for 6 years back in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I have been a long-term investor since my early teens. I study and apply technical analysis, and I use common sense. I am a student of fundamental analysis, but I have a long way to go. That being said, I am very impressed with the trading style of some of the members here and have successfully incorporated some of their techniques into my toolbox. I hold a diversified portfolio of common stocks and mutual funds. I utilize many strategies at buying and holding long, and I have sold short as a trader and did fairly well with it. I endeavor to see the stock market in various ways. I study the general market outlook, but usually do not try to time the market as I believe that it's nearly impossible. I am holding issues such as Apple, McDonald's, Proctor and Gamble, Chevron, and Coca-Cola long-term.
