MCIM Portfolios Rally To Three-Year High Levels

MCIM Portfolios Rally To Three-Year High Levels

By Steve Selengut

Kiawah Golf Investment Seminars (an investment education enterprise located near the Kiawah Island Golf-Tennis-Beach resort) proudly reports estimated investment performance results for a sampling of Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) portfolios.  Thus far in 2010, MCIM (70% Equity vs. 30% Income) portfolios are up roughly 16%.


This gain, on top of "dismal decade" growth estimated at 85%, further strengthens the methodology`s reputation as the safe and conservative approach to steady growth of both wealth and retirement income. Kiawah Golf Investment Seminars is the only entity in the world authorized to teach the Market Cycle Investment Management methodology. 


From the end of 1999 through the end of 2009, all of the popular Wall Street market performance measurement tools were in the red. Because of their emphasis on dividend paying, Investment Grade Value Stocks, and a solid base of income producing Closed End Funds, Market Cycle Investment Management portfolios were up an estimated 85%.


Both the S & P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average were negative from 1999 through 2009.


From the recent financial crisis beginning in 2007, through the interim "peak" on December 10 2010, most MCIM portfolios have regained positive territory. The Dow and S & P are negative 9.4% and 11.2%, respectively. And, more significantly, not one MCIM user should have experienced a meaningful loss in spendable income production during the period.


In calendar year 2008, Market Cycle Investment Management portfolios outclassed the market averages, Berkshire "B", and the most recent award winning mutual funds. In 2009, MCIM portfolios extended their lead by posting 34% returns compared with less than 20% for the Dow and less than 25% for the S & P 500.


In 2010, powered by Investment Grade Value Stock Index equities and diversified Closed End Income funds, MCIM portfolios have once again grown their owners` wealth while providing secure streams of income.


The Market Cycle Investment Management methodology was developed from 1970 to 1975 by professional investor Steve Selengut, now owner and chief investment instructor at Kiawah Golf Investment Seminars. Steve provides web-based mentoring programs, and other educational seminars on an appointment only basis.
