The above video is from a September 12 interview “60 Minutes” did with President Obama in the wake of the terror attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. CBS decided against airing this segment in their original broadcast but released it on Sunday night, just two days before the election. Continue reading
Richard Sylla, economic historian and professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business, talks with WSJ’s E.S. Browning about his formula for predicting market performance. Continue reading
Some folks think that trading or investing is easy, well this week goes to show it’s not for the feint at heart. Pay particular attention to what happened to this newbie at the end of this short video: Continue reading
Yep, the month of August has been on average, flat…..BUT with the budget ceiling debate coming to a close in the next week, the end of QE2 and positive earnings so far, it’s anyone’s guess as to what one can expect out of August 2011. Continue reading
The heck with the markets being in a soft patch, it seams like we are literally stuck in the mud. It’s time for the politicians to get out of the car and each get behind the solution to the budget ceiling debate and push the car out of the mud so we can move on. Yes, they will get dirty and have mud on their suits, but that heavy lifting is what they are hired to do and they have used up enough oxygen in the room with their banter and bickering which has produced no resolution to the problems as of this morning. Continue reading
Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest through the trees. As investors or traders, we must be sure to change our frame of focus in order to keep our footing and plays on solid ground. If we don’t, we could be going long or short at the wrong time. As we’ve seen recently, even the pros like Paulson and top hedge funds are challenged in the markets lately. Continue reading
We’ve played host to a distinguished list of notable visitors this past year at Newsmax headquarters: Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly, Mitt Romney, Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, Jeb Bush, and Donald Trump . . . to name just a few. Bill Spetrino, editor of The Dividend Machine newsletter was different. I say this not to impress you, but rather to impress upon you the fact that we’re not strangers to the presence of greatness. The thing is, we usually can see it coming.
We never saw him coming…… Continue reading
If you self-manage your investments, the first thing you have to learn is that the markets have an ebb and flow just like the ocean tides. The flows up and down must be expected and considered normal and so are the subsequent ups and downs in one’s portfolio. There are times to step on the gas, times to lift your foot off the brakes and gas, and times to put your foot on the brakes. We may be getting close to putting our foot back on the gas for a run back up to resistance. I’ve talked about “metal capitol” and how precious it is. Continue reading
The US markets appear to be on track to continue the melt up as folks come out of vacation mode. We’re in a bit of a void in terms of data since it’s not until July 11th when Alcoa kicks off the second quarter earnings season with their announcement of their second quarter earnings results. Here’s what we have for economic data points for the balance of this week with Friday’s employment report being the most critical data point for this week: Continue reading
Well, as part of my homework as a trader/investor, I took the time to gather 30 data points spanning the past 10 years across the 3 major market indexes and here’s what the past 10 years have yielded per index in July: Continue reading
BIO Forum subscribers know a top call was made at the end of April and those who follow my plays saw that I was rotating out of plays heavy in April despite having Calls that didn’t expire until May. Sometimes, the hardest thing to do as an investor or trader is to watch the markets after you have played your hand. Continue reading
This Monday morning looks like the market is going to get a haircut thanks to the lack of resolution on the Greek credit crisis. Smart investors will simply let this play out and save their dry powder for when shares of their favorite plays are on sale – kind of like shopping on the final days before Christmas when deep cuts in pricing are done by merchants who want to move their goods while the consumer is in spending mode. Continue reading
With the markets downdraft nearly completing their 7th straight week since the May high, new value investors are probably the ones who are questioning their conviction in there positions. The seasoned value investors, well….that’s a different story. See, it’s one thing to ID a play with good fundamentals and real earnings that are sustainable going forward, and it’s another thing to take a position in that company at the “right price”. Continue reading
What’s next for the market? Frankly, no one knows for sure. Do I hope we have put in a bottom? Yes, of course…but hope is not a trading or investment strategy. At times like these when oversold indicators don’t seem to move from oversold and the market has just finished its 6th down week since the beginning of May, it’s our job as investors to keep looking under rocks for value and potential in companies with real earnings and strong balance sheets. Continue reading
Trading and investing isn’t always easy and there are times like this when the market comes to a cross-roads. Some folks didn’t hear or act on the warnings of a top coming from our April posts and I do think that unrealized losses since the May high are part of the game and only a concern IF you are using options with < 4 months before expiration.
