Year-to-Date Total Returns Through April 2013

By JLP | May 1, 2013

April was a decent month for all the indexes followed here at AFM except for gold.

April’s 1.93% total return for the S&P 500 Index was the 40th best for the month of April going back to 1926. The index is up 12.74% year-to-date. Not bad.

Here is the link to the AFM PDF Report: S&P 500, MidCap 400, SmallCap 600, & 1500 Performance (01-2011 – 04-2013)

    A little of topic, but relevant since it is the beginning of May…
    Have you ever back tested the “Sell in May” strategy. It would be interesting to see this in a similar fashion as you are doing for the retirement series. Say one were to sell all investments on the first trading day of May and repurchase on the first trading August each year for the last 60 years.
