Theres an old saying youve probably heard that gets repeated every year in the spring and early summer that goes sell in May and go away. But is that good advice? Whats the best thing for you and your investments over the historically slower summer months? The phrase sell in May and go away is thought to originate from an old English saying, sell in May and go away, and come on back on St. Legers Day. This phrase refers to a custom of upper class aristocrats, traders and financiers who would leave London to spend the summer months in the country. Specifically, it refers to the St. Legers Stakes, a thoroughbred horse race held in mid-September. It turns out that the saying is based in solid analysis - From 1950 to around 2013, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has had an average return of only 0.3% during the May to October period, compared with an average gain of 7.5 percent during the November to April period, according to Forbes. But, since 2013 theres good reason to believe thats no
