IGVSI "buys" still at low level... Index up 16% from February Low

Agricultural Chemicals, Apparel, Asset Management, Printed Circuits,  Computers, Consumer Services, Department Stores, Drugs, Education, HR & Employment, Industrial Equipment, Insurances, Meat & Food Products, Paper, Pharmaceuticals, Restaurants, Textiles,

NOTE: No Energy,  Gas, Oil, or Utilities

The Bargain Stock Monitor is one of three market statistics used as performance expectation analyzers for MCIM Portfolios.

It is developed from the Month End Value Stock Watchlist screening program and identifies Investment Grade Value Stocks trading at least 15% below their 52-week high. 

Candidates must also meet the price selection criteria outlined in The Brainwashing Of The American Investor.

The "15% down" break-point allows you to keep your eye on "Bull Pen" items. 

The fewer IGVSI equities at bargain prices, the stronger the market as "Smart Cash"  accumulates in MCIM portfolios.

NOTE: If you haven't been taking profits on nearly everything you purchased in 2016, you haven't been paying attention!

You should be using market volatility to capture all reasonable profits... it pays to reinvest slowly and selectively 

Opportunities to put "Smart Cash" back to work are falling, but this market "bounce" is still nearly 100 points below the May 21 2015 S & P 500 ATH. We could be reaching the end of the longest (but not the deepest) correction since the financial crisis.

BEST PERFORMING SECTORS: Energy and Closed End Funds

ACTION ALERT:  Profits are available in both tax free and taxable CEFs. Still, both have a long way to go to match 2012 levels. Tax free yields above 6% are becoming scarce; taxable yields remain very high. Both are holding (gaining) market value while the stock market wavers... this is normal behavior.

Don't avoid taking profits and call "the doctor" if you don't know how to reinvest advantageously.
