IGVSI "buys" low, but in 30 sectors... IGVSI Index up 18% from February

Agricultural Chemicals, Airlines, Apparel, Asset Management, Automotive, Printed Circuits, Computers, Consumer Services, Department Stores, Discount Stores, Drugs, Education & Training, Electronics, Energy/Construction, Food Processing, Home Furnishings, Industrial Equipment, Insurances, Jewelry, Lodging, Meat & Food Products & Packaging, Paper, Railroads, Recreational Vehicles, Restaurants, Specialty Chemicals, Sporting Goods, Textiles, Water Utilities

NOTE: No Energy Producers; No Gas or Electric 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 more than normal for such a "pricey" market, just 30 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; both are just 10% below ATH levels. Tax free yields above 6% are scarce; taxable yields remain historically high. Both are gaining market value while the stock market wavers, in spite of anticipated higher interest rates.

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