While checking on NAESXs returns, I noted that the value of this fund consistently improves during the second quarter, if it is going to improve at all. In the past, the fund has seen several very good years. Obviously, 2008 was not one of them. I am, however, hoping that 2nd-quarter-2009 performance will stun us all by reversing course and climbing to the very pinnacle of the chart. Amen.
