Investors Should Really Think About Stock Market says "Russ Whitney"

May is only half over, but it’s more than time to call “sell in May and go away” a losing strategy.That’s not just because the market is on a pace to double its year-to-date returns this month.Instead it’s because market axioms and rules tend to be more about comfort than investing logic, and the comfortable path is the best one for most investors.The flaws don’t stop investors from considering it a real strategy.

The strategy is based on the historical results of the stock market from May through October, compared to outcome from the other six months of the year.The average return of 0.3% from May to October, compared with a 7.5% gain in the November-April time frame.Those results don’t include transaction costs and taxes on any profits which academics can avoid but investors can’t but they also show that the idea is less about dumping stocks to avoid summer-fall losses.

Mostly, trading volumes are lower during summer vacation months, and stocks tend to be more volatile at times when there is less liquidity in the market.But the entire idea involves thinking like a trader, where the slow summer months show fewer trends of any sort.

Traders like trends and selling in May for a trader is a track record of small gains, it’s not worth to be in the market for that half of the year.However, the public saw it as a statement that the market is a loser from May through November, helped along by the perception that many of the market’s worst days have come in October.

Apple Plans to Launch Apple TV Remote says Russ Whitney

The Apple TV remote control is going to get its first big makeover.Among the big changes to the remote are a touch pad, a thicker size and the elimination of all but two of its buttons.The updated remote is expected to be released in June at Apple's annual developers conference in San Francisco. Along with the remote, developers will hear about a new version of Apple TV and the tech giant's strategy to entice cord-cutters.

Apple was working with content creators to bundle about 25 channels for about $30 to $40 a month starting this fall.There was a $15 month version of streaming service, launched this spring, allowing users to access HBO on Apple devices without a cable or satellite subscription.Tech giant Apple, rated Aa1/AA+, announced a seven-tranche U.S. dollar benchmark bond on Wednesday to finance the repurchase of stock and dividends.

It will replace blackberry and it will be a blackberry of the future.There is a big makeover for Apple as after using the Apple TV remote you can easily navigate around without having to look at the remote.This remote design is the best and great feature. Hence in upcoming future we will be looking forward to pick up a spare at a big discount.
