A Homeowner With No Savings, but Some Options

If you’re worried that you haven’t saved enough for retirement, you’re probably right. Most of us haven’t. In fact, the Employee Benefit Research Institute found the majority of American workers had put away less than $25,000 for their golden years…… Continue reading

Morning Value Investing Observations – Fri. Feb. 4, 2011

Something struck me today as I went to write these morning value investing observations in that I wonder how many investors miss the opportunity to live a less stressful life and instead they make investing harder than it has to be by zooming in and out of plays to chase performance. I wonder how many traders or investors found themselves holding their breath waiting for the 8:30am Jobs Report today like it was going to make or break their day, month and or year.

Morning Value Investing Observations – Thurs. Jan. 27, 2011

One step back and two steps forward seems to be the rhythm of the market lately. As we discussed, this week is playing out as we put pressure on overhead resistance on both the 12,000 DOW level and 1,300 SP500 level.

Morning Value Investing Observations – Tues. Jan. 25, 2011

Know who you are….and if you don’t like who you are….make changes. See, the good thing about investing or changing is the only thing stopping you from being good at what you do is the space between your ears. Safe high yield value investing is possible if you are patient and you pick your targets carefully. The difference between value investing and trend trading is huge in that the value investor is not looking for momentum, they are simply looking to put there money to work only when they can get it in at the right price.
