It is not in the stars for you. Maybe if you were born a few months later...

No. You're mixing two different investing strategies. You can only have one and you have to choose, so it's either sell in May or investing with the stars.

I wonder if sell in May still works with the Mayan calendar.

Sell like a Mayan, or you'll be cryin'.

Is the Mayan calendar different? It seems like May has come really early this year, ouch 5 days in row.

I think we have the makings of a bestselling investment newsletter here. You, T-Al and me. We can call it "The R Factor" and only the three of us know that "R" stands for rhyme. And in the remote possibility that it does not sell, T-Al can put some melody to the phrases and play them as original songs.

We'll be rich.

Yes! It's an incredible offer with a free! audio newsletter to start, where we rhyme all of the months with an investment strategy! Free! Then every week through the year we rhyme using the days of the week, major holidays, and minor holidays, and finish up with special times of the day and night ("You can't go wrong when you buy at dawn!"). Downloadable to your smart phone or tablet of choice, no extra charge for T-Al's original score.

That sounds like work. I'll leave that to you three while I sit on the sidelines with popcorn, as properly befits the Oracle of Whee.
