7-31-2013 AAR Strategy Update Posted

The July 31, 2013 AAR Strategy update is now available on the AAR Subscribers page.  If you are not currently a subscriber and would like to learn more about the strategy, there is a detailed description on the AAR Strategy page.

The AAR strategy is a conservative, long-only, asset allocation strategy that rotates monthly among five large asset classes: large-cap U.S. stocks, developed country stocks in Europe and Asia, emerging market stocks, U.S. Treasury Notes, and commodities.  Stop-loss orders are used on every trade to control losses and facilitate position sizing.

Year-to-date, the AAR strategy is up 14.4%. The benchmark for the AAR strategy, an equal-weighted portfolio of the same five investment candidates, is only up 0.9% year-to-date.
