April 2009 - AIA Advocate for Absolute Returns

The AIA "Advocate For Absolute Returns", an on-line publication of The Association for Investor Awareness, Inc., tracks market trends, industry news, the SEC, global trade and finance and Washington developments for you because they affect your investments. But who doesn't? Many sources simply report these issues as abstract facts.

We feel that's not enough. The AIA Advocate's job is to warn you of what's important and how these developments translate to ground-level forces and threats that directly affect your wealth as well as your current investment opportunities. Not just information, but information you can use. Until next time…

    In This Issue:

    Signs Of A Better Economy? (Or At Least Not As Bad?)
    Stocks For A Weak Recovery
    The Bottom Line This Week

    Last month investors received another booster shot from Wall Street as the Dow and the Nasdaq rose an additional 1.2% and 5.5% respectively. The gains left stocks up 26% from the rally's jumping off point. With any luck, and a few encouraging numbers from the economy, the rally could continue for another few weeks.

    Lest anyone think the bear is finished, however, we must remind you that the market never moves in a straight line very long. Even if this is the start of a new bull market, we must expect to get some nasty shocks along the way. After such a strong rally, the first correction may be close at hand.
