October 2016 Pricing Commentary The ABC Funds modestly declined on the October 31st valuation date primarily a result of weaker U.S. share prices. Largely due to the uncertain outcome of the November 8th U.S. presidential election, the major U.S. stock averages fell between -1% to -4 ½% for the month. With the American election only six days away we expect considerable resolution to the overhanging political uncertainty and far greater investment clarity. Irwin A. Michael, President I.A.
