We are recommending for investors to hold seasonally attractive equity positions that remain in an intermediate uptrend and continue to outperform the S&P 500
Index (e.g. precious metals, technology, selected Canadian energy, DIS, UNH,
AAPL, etc.). Profit taking in other positions is appropriate. As highlighted in our
Fixed Income commentary, year-end portfolio adjustments continue, most
notably the switch to fixed income securities from equities.
