Barron's interviewed the founder and CIO of Essex Investment Management, Joseph McNay, has been beating the Russell 3000 by a wide margin this year He believes that in the short term, the market is slightly overbought. McNay looks for a pullback to the 50-day moving average on the S&P 500, which is around 132 -- and expects it could last a few weeks or a month. "Short-term interest rates are the lowest in our lives, says McNay, so it makes common stocks and gold-related investments the most interesting places to invest." "You want to be in companies that grow faster than money loses its value, so that you maintain your purchasing power," McNay notes. Stocks that pay dividends have more appeal. MCNay thinks Apple (AAPL) will raise its dividend. McNay says, in the long term, gold is still in a bull market.
