This was also the case for Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX). I warned on November 28th not to chase the rally.....More>>>

Its a snoozefest.
The S&P 500 is stuck in its narrowest range in nearly half a century and trading volume is plumbing multi-month lows. But by September, investors may be pining for the dog days of summer, with data suggesting that it is historically the worst month for stocks.
