The AAII Pittsburgh Chapter presents...

"Three Simple Strategies"

    Discussed by:

    Herb Geissler
    Managing Director, St. Clair Group

An ancient Chinese curse says, “May you live in interesting times.” Today, indeed, we do live in “interesting times,” with recent statistics revealing individual investors exiting equity stocks and moving into low-yielding “safe harbor” alternatives. With bond yields now at historical lows, are such traditional refuges really safe today? Is “hunkering down” still the best course? If so, when should you move in or out of such securities? Finally, which securities are best to consider or hold? At the May AAII Pittsburgh chapter meeting, Herb Geissler will analyze the economic and stock market climates for the next two years, during which time the presidential cycle will climax. He will describe specific economic indicators that you can easily track to judge when the economy and stock market are growing or faltering. Finally, he will present three simple investing strategies that require little effort yet enable you to avoid big drawdowns and to retain more of your hard-won market gains. CDs with three spreadsheets for monthly tracking and three tutorial essays will be available for purchase at this meeting.
