Market Comment 07 06 2012

On Friday the market was down sharply. The market was over-bought and due for a pull-back. The current sell off is not alarming and has in fact relieved the over-bought condition of the market. The underlying tone actually remains positive, especially for the small cap stocks.

As I write on Monday morning, the market is down again, but not in a big way.

GWM Model Portfolio Holdings

Below is a back-test of the complete list of assets held in GWM model portfolios. Performance is based on an equal weight of all assets. So, this is just presented to give you a general idea of how our picks are performing.

The actual assets and weightings you may have are dependent upon your chosen GWM Model Portfolio. The back-test represents returns since the active market low set on June 4th, 2012 through Friday July 6th.

If you would like to view the details on any of the investments listed above, click on [Portfolio Holdings Lookup by Symbol] under the [Clients] tab on the GWM web-site. As you well know these holdings are subject to change given the current nature of the market.

As a side note, I have over-weighted Apple in all model portfolios. Apple is still operating as a bellweather and is currently performing quite well.
