(A Top Pick June 5/15. Up 3.38%.) His thesis is that he is not expecting much for the summer. He is trying to hold low beta positions that shouldn’t see a lot of upside or downside.

(A Top Pick July 14/14. 3.2%.) This holds a basket of US utilities. Really good risk/reward. Chart shows a pretty good trend line and has sort of broken it a little. However, there are a couple of spots to hang your hat on. In the last couple of months, earnings have really started to ratchet up. It has really been oversold.

Seasonally these things tend to do okay over the summer. His whole view right now is that he is trying to hold relatively neutral positions. He doesn’t expect this to do a lot over the summer, but he also doesn’t expect them to lose a lot either.

Utilities have been hitting record highs. Usually they do well in softer environments, but in the last 2 months, they have shown great strength. Well above its uptrend and he is looking to add to his position. The market does really not believe that we've got escape velocity growth.

It is down today as the GDP number is being assessed by the markets. It is a seasonally strong time to buy it. Earnings were decent first quarter.

Had a huge run up in the spring when it typically does not do well, which meant the market had become more defensive. When the Fed talked about tapering, this fell way back down again. Thinks that was a little bit overdone. From a technical perspective, he sees a little bit of a reverse head and shoulders pattern and it has just broken above the resistance line.

(A Top Pick June 6/05. Up 10.8%.) That was basically an interest rate play as well as a safe haven. Still looks good.

A little bit of adversity. A little bit of safety. Looks like it's trying to break out and make a 52 week high.
