July 30, 2016: Not My Job?

This week, we stepped back to address a big question, why should someone take responsibility for their investments? Why shouldn’t it be left to the “experts”? After all, we rely on doctors, lawyers, etc. for their specialized knowledge, why should investing be any different? There are many differences, one has to do with what financial experts actually know, another is what are their incentives, a third is the underperformance of these experts. Given that market rates of return are likely to remain exceptionally low over the next 10-20 years, these issues will become even more important for those trying to build a financially secure retirement. In this show, we address these issues, and more.

Given this week’s topic I am going to be doing a special class, “Trading And Investing In The 21st Century”. I will be teaching this class personally.If you would like free tickets to the class, call 84-48-Income (844.846.2663) and tell them that you read about it on the Next Week In Stocks website.

July 23, 2016: Low Bars and Highballs

The market continues to move higher, but seems to be losing steam. Volume is down, most market participants are selling (with the exception of companies buying their own stock and potential “mystery” buyers at the central banks). Earnings have now declined for five consecutive quarters (and it looks like a sixth is on its way) and the gap between GAAP (standardized earnings) and Non-GAAP (what can I get away with when I report earnings) continues to grow. This market can go higher, but risk continues to increase.

July 16, 2016: Up On Rocky Top

The Dow and S&P are at all time highs, Happy Days Are Here Again! However, what do we see when we look beneath the surface?

  • Price/Earnings (P/E) ratios are at levels normally seen before major pullbacks
  • S&P earnings are scheduled to fall again this quarter for the 6th straight quarter, yet stock prices still rise
  • Companies are beating expectations, but only because they have lowered expectations, bought back shares and used a lot of “one-time charges” (for the nth quarter in a row)
  • The world is awash in a debt it can’t pay
  • Europe continues to struggle on many fronts
  • China is becoming more belligerent in the South China Sea
  • The Middle East is still the Middle East
  • Energy prices are falling
  • World trade is slowing
  • Etc.

Here’s the point. The market can continue to rise due to buybacks and government/central bank stock purchases, until it can’t. One day (no one knows when), this market must take a big hit. Are you prepared to protect what you have and profit when that day comes?
