REITs are a good play in the summer. Usually you get falling rates during the summer. Investors want to be less correlated and reduce their risks to equities, and often trend towards the bond markets. From March to May is the 1st period of seasonal strength for REITs, and then June through August is the next period. This one is heavily weighted into 2 securities, so if you want more of an equal basket, there is BMO Equal Weight REITs Index (ZRE-T).

Energy stocks have been doing quite well. A lot of them bottomed in January and some have gone up 20%, 30%, 40%. This one hasn’t participated the way he would have liked to see. The chart shows a descending trend line from September, which is presently being tested. There isn’t too much reason to get in now.

Energy has a period of seasonal strength from January all the way through to May 9 on average, and this one has performed up to expectations. It is currently consolidating. We have the end of seasonal strength coming. If you are looking past the seasonality, you want to be into the refiners right now. From a seasonal play, he would recommend getting in right now, but from a longer-term perspective this is a place you want to be in the energy sector.

These stocks can do well all the way through to February and then they tail off. This one has been dreadful. Seasonally, you don’t want to be invested in material stocks during the summer.

Has been overbought over the past couple of weeks and it is starting to show signs of curling lower. There could be a pullback here. For an entry point, he would be looking more towards the 50 day moving average.

The longer-term trend is intact, higher highs and higher lows. This obviously needs some consolidation. Look towards buying this more towards the 50 day moving average. (See Top Picks.)
