  • I Could Be Wrong But I Do Not Believe Sell In May Is The Right Strategy This Year Or Next 2 comments
    May 9, 2014 3:28 PM | about stocks: MU

    I could be wrong but I do not believe sell in May is the right strategy this year or next (if you are in MU anyway). I believe the right stategy is to hold tight and ride out the bumps and potholes along the road as the market always has had crazy gyrations and volatility which is usually best to ignore. Based on the macro and micro fundamentals and technicals and business cycle and the decade cycle and the election cycle and seasonal cycles it looks like 2014 will be an okay year and 2015 will be a good year if you are in MU.

    Author’s reply » Check out this link too, very good big picture analysis of average monthly returns, confirms my prior analysis that probably okay to stay in market all year except September best to be out of the market or maybe even short. For reasons which are not completely obvious, September is by far the worst month of the year for the markets.

  • MU is a steal at these levels today, selloff is silly because MCHP is a totally different business with different management.
