Last Friday, April 30, Portia Capital Management owner, Michelle Connell, CFA, had the privilege to speak with Yahoo Finance’s Sibile Marcellus and Alexis Christoforous on the current state of the investment markets. During the interview, Michelle explained why we think it would be prudent to do some trimming in your investment portfolio before summer begins.
