Historical Data Shows Best Performing Investments After a Recession

Wealth Management Firm Offers to Help Investors Position Their Portfolios for Recovery

PROVO, UT--(Marketwire - September 10, 2009) - Paragon Wealth Management advises investors to position their portfolio in the areas of the market that have historically performed well after a recession and has offered to help by providing complimentary portfolio reviews.

"We pay close attention to the economy," said Paragon's President and founder, Dave Young. "In July our economic models indicated it was highly likely the recession ended in June."

Paragon's wealth managers have encouraged investors to become fully invested in the stock market since March of this year. They recommended moving to a fully invested position when most investors were selling.

"The first and sharpest stage of the market recovery usually occurs right after the initial market plunge and takes about three to four months," said Young. "We believe stage one occurred between March 9 and June 30. The second stage of recovery occurs after the recession ends, which we believe was around the end of June."

"This difficult market highlights why active wealth management is so important," said Young. "Because market dynamics are constantly changing and evolving, we believe the best investment approach is one that actively adjusts, moves and changes based on market conditions."

Following these strategies from January 1998 through August 2009, Paragon's growth portfolio has generated a total return of 312.43 percent, net of all fees. During that same time the S&P 500 posted a total return of 28.51 percent.
