Market Commentary May 2017

Please find this month’s Market Commentary newsletter which contains our view on the stock market based upon fundamental and technical analysis along with some recommended investments for the current market.

One of the most famous sayings in the stock market starts with the words “Sell in May”, so it is no surprise that May is one of the weakest months of the year for shares. There are only three months where, since 1970, the market has an average return of below zero in the month – May is one of them (the others being June and September). Equally worth bearing in mind are the words of legendary investor Peter Lynch when he said “more money has been lost trying to anticipate and protect from corrections than actually in them.”
