Athena’s Michael Lear Discusses Market Rally on CNBC’s “Closing Bell”

On May 12, 2014, Michael Lear, Vice President of Portfolio Management at Athena Capital Advisors, joined CNBC’s “Closing Bell” to offer commentary around the trading session’s market rally and the strength of the U.S. dollar.

“We’re staying out of the momentum plays and really sticking with quality names – companies that can pass on pricing on to consumers and really take advantage of what’s going on in the markets,” said Lear. “We think the consumer is going to come back in a significant way later on in the year and I think we’re pretty well positioned for that.”
